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.

55. Here's an Ariel Carmeli cue originally sold in 2007 or 2008. The original owner seldom played pool and passed away. I bought the back from the original owner's son. I then had the cue completely refinished with 2 new custom grade 13mm shafts (4.10, 4.16 oz) as original shafts were 12.5mm and light per original owner. This 6 point cue features really nice and now very rare Amboyna Burl into birdseye maple with black and natural veneers. The cue has double silver (steel) rings at all positions. The wrap is honey Spanish bull leather which harmonizes perfectly with the color of the burl. The cue weighs 19.18/ 19.24 oz. with a 19-1/8" balance point. If ordered today from Ariel this cue would be priced in the $2,400.00-2,500.00 range as Amboyna Burl is about a 500.00 to 600.00 exotic woods up-charge.SOLD.
