Ariel Carmeli Cues
Ariel Carmeli started repairing and building cues while employed at the now legendary Best Billiards in Santa Ana, CA in 1991.  Some of the best cuemakers in America, who frequented the store, instructed Ariel on various aspects of cuemaking.  After having spent many years at the craft on a full time basis, Ariel is widely recognized as a highly skilled master cuemaker. With addtional labor and expense Ariel cores almost all of his custom cue forearms for strength and stability.  Whether entry level or high-end, Ariel Carmeli cues are known for their solid, clean construction and playability.  More cues are always on order with Ariel--and we'll gladly discuss a custom order with you.

Preowned--like new! This 58" Ariel Carmeli cue was sold to a local customer in 2004. It was from the first group of cues I received from Ariel as a new dealer. I kept one for myself-- which I still love to play with as Ariel's cues are often super good players. The original owner who was an occasional league banger only played with one shaft. The butt was recently refinished and re-wrapped by Ariel and the cue has not been played with since. The butt weighs 15.15 oz.
