Guido Alessandro Orlandi IIGuido Alessandro Orlandi II is an elderly gentleman cue creator residing in Channing, MI who is always thinking out of the box.20+ years experience repairing and building precision billiard instruments and having played on the Pro Pool Tour, Guido has come to understand 2 important things:1.How a great cue should play, feel and sound.2.How to build such an instrument.Mr. Orlandi’s conical joint connection is based on the ‘Morse taper’ as used on industrial machine tool spindles.This ‘V-joint’ configuration eliminates lateral movement, insures concentricity, longitudinal straightness and excellent transmission of sine waves through the cue from the tip to your back hand.Each cue begins with a butt constructed of exotic woods built as either a full splice or solid straight grain maple with sleeved handle, these foundations insure the continuation of ‘sensual feedback’ to your mind and muscles. The ‘Ultra-low squirt’ Guido shaft is one solid piece of the finest grade hard rock maple. The shaft is fully adjustable in weight and balance. Tight grain, well aged wood transmits the feel and sound commensurate of a top shelf billiard instrument. Can be fitted with your choice of ferrule material and tip.The jump / break shaft is one solid piece of the finest grade hard rock maple properly tapered and with a dedicated hard tip and ferrule. Can be fitted with your choice of ferrule material and tip.The conventional shaft is one solid piece of the finest grade hard rock maple with a slight forward balance as it is not low squirt. Tight grain, well aged wood transmits the feel and sound commensurate of a top shelf billiard instrument. Can be fitted with your choice of ferrule material and tip.‘Total tunability’ is built into each cue – the butt and shaft are fully weight adjustable. Weights can be added, subtracted and moved longitudinally, allowing you to easily tune the cue’s static weight, weight distribution and balance point to the exact preference of the player. The entire cue is tunable to fractional ounce and inch increments.These fine precision billiard instruments are available on a very limited basis; Guido produces less than one cue per month.
