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.
