Maker of pool cues from 1998 to present in Visalia, California.
Jim Ward started making cues part time out of his glass shop in 1998. His full-time job has been owning and operating AJ Glass which he opened in 1985. He loved to play pool and was always interested in cues. Jim was born in Fresno and raised in the area between Fresno and Bakersfield where he still lives and works today.
Jim likes to take a lot of time building a cue, and he tries to make them the old-fashioned way in his one-man shop. All work is done by Jim, by hand, in a shop that includes five old lathes and an end mill but no CNC. He makes his own short-splice blanks, and enjoys trying different things. He has made just about every joint configuration over the years, including the Uni-Loc. Jim has developed his own taper that is based more on the great cues of the past. He also uses his own capped and threaded "Grice" ferrules.
Jim has made about a couple hundred cues and no two are alike. He likes to make one-of-a-kind cues to the customer´s designs. He prefers maple handles on his cues instead of wraps. All Ward cues can be easily identified by the "Jim Ward" signature that has appeared on the forearm or butt of every cue he has made. Cues are also dated.
Jim will take care of servicing his cues for any problem that results from normal use.
