Queperfect Master Scrimshaw MS-07-0005


Queperfect Master Scrimshaw MS-07-0005

I have seen some users express interest in QuePerfect / CuePerfect / QP Cues that were made by Ronnie Powell.

I am the second owner of the Queperfect MS 07-0005 cue that was commissioned back in 2003.

The story is, I was brokering the cue to a few collectors at a major tournament and was making arrangements to bring the cue to Vegas for the VNEA and APA championships. The owner needed money before I could get the cue to Vegas and asked me to make an offer... Being in the right place at the right time paid off.

Commissioned in 2003 and completed in 2007, I am the second owner of this cue.

This is a Master Scrimshaw Series cue made of Bubinga with 3 matching shafts, 2 of them 50-60 GPI ultra low deflection, old growth shafts (300+ year old rock maple). The scrimshaw work and shaft work is amazing on this cue. This one of a kind cue was featured in PoolPlayers Magazine in 2012.

After buying and selling hundreds of cues and playing some 1000's of cues, this was the cue that I always compared every other high end cue too, so the opportunity to buy it was my dream come true.

Ronnie Powell was an eccentric cue maker with a passion for details... His eccentricity has earned him a sordid reputation, but nonetheless, he has made some of the finest hitting cues I've ever played.

The International Cuemakers Association lists one of his scrimshaw Series cues as the class 5 standard.

Anyway, here are pics. I hope you enjoy them.

    That cue, like many QP Cues, is a beauty.

    ...and from the looks of things we may not see many more (if any more) new cues from Ronnie and cueperfect coming on to the market. Were you ever able to get in touch with him?

    What do you think a cue like that fetch if it were sold on the open market these days?

    I know what you mean about his eccentricity (which I see as just a side-effect of his passion for cue making and quality) and his sordid reputation. I've talked with him a lot about it and read the back stories on his website. You could make a movie from it easily.

    ...and thanks for the great history and back-story on the cue, by the way.

    People are always afraid to talk about prices and such online. Truth is, this cue was originally commisioned as a $3000 budget, once the scrimshaw and other details were added, the purchase price went over $4000.

    Ronnie himself said that the amount of work that went into this cue, he would never do another like it again and if it ever came down to near it... he would charge closer to 7-8k.

    As far as what its worth now... who knows... QP cues are sought after and loathed at the same time. Few factors come into to play now... craftsmanship and artwork in this cue is over and above standard, Ronnie not making a cue and being reclusive in the last 5 years... No offence to anyone but if he is ever pronounced dead... plays a factor.

    All i know is its personally the best cue I ever played and Im 46 now... hoping my 9 year old son will play with it when he is old enough. No plans on selling no matter what the price.
