Shane Van Boening Orders A Diveney Pool Cue!

Diveney Pool Cues Image

This just in, friends! Shane Van Boening was in Reno, Nevada, when he saw the Diveney pool cue being used by one of my good friends, Filipino pool player Rodolfo Boy Luat, aka Boy Samson. Shane called Pat Diveney and asked if he to try out some of Pat's cues. Shane liked the Diveney cues so much that he ordered one just like Boy Luat’s. Now, that’s very good news!

Pat Diveney is a custom cuemaker in eastern Iowa who has developed a great following in that area. Pat's cues are stunningly beautiful! Pat makes great pool cues and is one great guy! And I kid you not!
