There are only 50 of these to be made and I have #1 and #2. This cue is one of the nicest looking cues I have ever seen. It comes with 2 Meucci "the pro" shafts and the weight can be adjusted.

Cocobolo BMC Diamond Cue 011/100
A BMC Cocobolo Diamond cue #011/100 that was being shown off by it's owner in July 2020.
In 2017, Meucci decided to do a limited run of 50 cocobolo diamond cues and the first 2 were made. These first two have "1 of 50" and "2 of 50" written on the forearm under the "Robert J. Meucci" signature.
In 2018, we saw cocobolo BMC Diamond cue #5, but this time it was numbered "005 of 100". When asked, Barb from Meucci Cues said that Bob changed his mind and decided to expand production to 100 cues instead of 50.

Change in Inlay Material
The inlay material used to border the diamonds in the initial few cues was mother-of-pearl. Apparently there was a tendency for the MOP to crack, and so now Meucci uses birdseye maple in the place of the mother-of-pearl on the newer cocobolo diamond cues they make. This generally means that an earlier cue with un-cracked mother-of-pearl inlays would be worth a bunch more as time goes on.

Cocobolo BMC Diamond Cue Specs
Meucci's standard black basic push-in rubber bumper
Meucci-style black synthetic butt cap
Black composite butt plate. Contains the BMC logo.
The butt sleeve isn't typical in length. It is much longer. The buttsleeve contains the same, but slightly smaller, diamond and ring pattern used in the forearm. The inlays are set in cocobolo wood and features several large diamond inlays and white rings with black square inlays. Birdseye maple is used on the exterior of all diamonds. The earliest cues used mother of pearl for this, but that was swapped out for birdseye maple after Meucci noticed the MOP didn't hold up well. The ovals in the middle of the diamonds are made from authentic Abalone shell. In the case of the 6 trim diamonds, the Abalone used is a very rare "Heart of Abalone".
