DENNIS SEARING CUSTOM CUES
Maker of pool cues 1991 to 1993 in Hollywood, Florida, relocated in 1993 to Wellington, Florida.
Dennis Searing was a semi-professional player who always liked cues. His favorite cues were made by Gus Szamboti, and he always had at least one of Gus´s cues on order. He also spent a lot of time on the phone with Gus, talking about cuemaking. After Gus died, Dennis tried playing with other cues but he couldn´t find what he was looking for. Finally Dennis decided to try to make cues himself. He had a background in woodworking and had built custom wood decks, fences, and staircases. Dennis had also worked as an electrician. He built his first cue in his garage in 1991. When he moved to Wellington, Florida Dennis built a shop specifically for making cues.
Dennis makes everything in his cues except for the tips, the screws, and the bumpers in his one-man shop. He has made all of the components himself, but for example, Dennis believes it is hard to make a tip that is better than the best tip you can buy. Dennis prefers to concentrate on the wood in his cues. He believes that by selecting the right piece of wood and using the proper building techniques, he can achieve the best hit and playability. He understands the reason for coring cues, but believes traditional methods inspired by George Balabushka and Gus Szamboti are superior. He makes his own short-spliced blanks and refuses to do inlaid points. Dennis will not construct a cue with designs that adversely affect the integrity of the cue. The whole mid section of a Dennis Searing cue is wood with no metal screws. The handle has wood threads that screw directly into the forearm, wood-to-wood. All components are threaded.
Being a pool player himself, Dennis understands that different players have different tastes and prefer cues with different specifications and different types of hits. He has made several extra long custom cues for professional basketball players in Florida. Dennis uses radial pins and also likes stainless steel joints. He has also developed his own stainless steel half joint. He tries to make a cue that resonates like one piece of wood, and Dennis prefers the balance to be slightly forward.
Dennis Searing cues are easily identifiable by the "S" logo that appears on the butt caps. He also signs and dates his cues with "D Searing" if he makes the blanks. Some Searing hustler cues were made from existing full-spliced blanks, and therefore not signed. Dennis no longer makes hustler cues.
Dennis offers a money-back guarantee upon delivery for playability and satisfaction. Searing cues are guaranteed for life against construction defects that are not the result of warpage or abuse.
