Welcome to CHALKERS.COM, your source for fine pool cues from current and past master cue makers. Since 1990 we have been providing knowledgeable and helpful service to cue collectors (both established and aspiring) searching for special and rare cues, as well as to players looking for a well-priced cue with a great hit.
Most of the cues you will find on CHALKERS.COM are either new or in “like new” condition. We have set the standard for complete cue descriptions, and clear, detailed, high-resolution photos.
The principals of CHALKERS.COM are Martyne S. Bachmen and Hugh Tiernan. Martyne has been buying, selling, and collecting cues for the past 18 years. She has been a contributing writer for Billiards Digest for over 15 years, with a focus on cues and cuemakers since 2004. You can view Hugh and Martyne's cue photos on the Cue Articles page, including Martyne's monthly “Wand Workshop” feature focusing on individual cuemakers. Among her recent subjects are "Come Up and See Our Etchings", "Texas Cuemakers", and her first-hand account of the 2007 International Cue Collectors Show: "Deep In the Art of Texas" . Martyne has attended every ICCS event since the first show in 2002, documenting the shows and exhibiting cues from her collection. See the About Us page for Martyne's and Hugh's bios.
CHALKERS.COM gets a lot of compliments on our service, selection, and fair pricing. All the cues and memorabilia we sell include a Letter of Authentication from Martyne. Here are a few testimonials from our customers:
“I received the cue and it looks even better than the pictures.
It's been a pleasure doing business with you…Thanks” - Mike B.
“Great condition, great cue, great transaction. Thanks so much. Additionally, thank you for the letter you enclosed.” - Ed G.
CHALKERS.COM ships worldwide, with complimentary shipping for all cues within the continental U.S. Methods of payment accepted are cashier's check or money order (U.S. funds) or bank wire transfer. For U.S. orders only we will also accept Visa, Master Card and American Express upon receipt of a faxed Credit Card Authorization Form (download the form directly from the BUY / Contact Us page).
If you don't see the cue you're looking for here, please e-mail or call us - there is a very good chance we can find it for you. Cash is king, but we do consider trades or part cash/part trade offers, especially for vintage cues. Discounts are available for the purchase of two or more cues.
