In 1986, pool hustler "Fast" Eddie Felson, Paul Newman, returned to the silver screen after 25 years to mentor Vincent Lauria, Tom Cruise, a pool player that reminds Eddie of himself. Early on in the film, The Color of Money, Fast Eddie shows Vincent a pool cue that they both refer to as a Balabushka.
While this cue is a beautiful and extraordinary cue, it is not a Balabushka but rather it is in fact a cue made by Joss Cues®.
Featuring classic ebony points and mother of pearl inlays the Joss N7 model cue continues to be among the bestselling cues in the Joss line some 20+ years after its original introduction.
This is the same style cue we made for the 1986 classic movie “The Color of Money” This cue has become a “must have classic” that has been collected by cue enthusiast the world over. The well known rear of this cue has five large pearl diamonds matched by four small pearl diamonds in the black points. Colors in the points are red and natural with a black veneer outline. The wrap shown is natural linen with a black spot. All new Joss Cues® have a core of hard rock maple through the full length of the cue. The front will be either curly maple or flame birch.
