There was one for identification in the forums within the last three months. I don't remember if it was identified.
I have seen several of these cues. I believe it's a Taiwan cue. I believe they may have been made in the same factory as the Cobras and Mizerak cues, but not 100% sure. Max value on such a cue is probably about $75.00 IMHO.
Thanks for all the COLORFUL, remarks, I know that this cue is not PAUL RUBINO, -

I never claimed it was, I was expecting it to be an import of some type, what I didnt know, was it a decent quality import? Where was it made? When were these made? And, finally, do you know what the actual name of the 'Pr' was?
Like I mentioned, Craig (Manwon) was the one that spoke up in another thread. He didn't mention any other specifics other than he knew it was an import. It would be interesting to know what the pr stands for too.
As for mine. It was from EBay and the seller suggested that it may be a Paul Rubino. Now, that was a few years ago now and I have a much better Cue Maker forum education now. I had sent Paul a pic of the cue and found out it wasn't one of his early cues. Thats why I was teasin ya cause I got a little rubbery thinking it was a real PR. Altho I seriously didn't think so considering the price I paid for it.
I did a re wrap, finish, added a stiff taper shaft and changed the pin to a 3/8ths x 10. Mine is just a Merry Widow. I have to say that it is one of the best players that I own and I wouldn't sell it for anything. Just goes to show ya, a $75 cue and it can play good.
Maybe I just got lucky or the wrap and finish I did was magic.
Ya know, it could happen. In a Disney movie it could anyway.
To play Pool, is to suffer.
To learn to be a better player, is to find some meaning in the suffering.

I posted on the other thread. If it has the same logo it is a mid 80's to late 80's import form (I believe) Taiwan, called Penray. I know, because I used to have one in 1989 til about 6 years ago. It was 200 or so back then in a local cue shop we had in my town. I bought it because I liked it and I knew nothing about cues then. I hope this helps. Bye the way. It is near impossible to find any info on this cue.
