Meucci Cues - 12-15-2013, 10:07 PM

Great news........Earl is going to team up with Meucci again.

Hopefully it will give Meucci Collectors a chance to finally break even with their investments.



Bring on Buddy Hall turned out to be a flop....

Christmas wishes... - 12-16-2013, 01:03 AM

Man... how thing come full circle over the years.

That and I think Meucci has actually step up their line with Pro Series selections. (Link then scroll Down)

Actually I like the Pro Series 5 (Link then scroll Down) because I have 2 of its 'Grandfathers' (2 Mint cond OL-1's) from the 80's. They hit REAL GOOD... Neither are for SALE...Not even to Bob. The OL-1 was my First Pool Cue ever and I bought in South Haven MS when I moved to Memphis in the Mid 80's.

I wish (since it is Christmas and all... Santa bob) that I could get it A Pro Series 5 pre-configured (maybe at a dealer but no such luck yet) at 18.5-19oz, all wood butt with the G-10 pin, 30" Pro Tapered Shaft (or 2), with the Super low Deflection Ferrules, simple Black (non wrap) grip and it doesn't even need a signature... Just a reachable 'Christmas type' price... I might even be willing to give up one of my Orginal OL-1's for the right "Christmas Trade" for the New Pro Series 5 Model mentioned above... hint hint.

This would be my 'new Matching set' of Meucci's... (the Grand dad OL-1 and the Grand son - the Pro) I'd love to do a write up of the new Pro cue characteristics and Meucci's new 'customer relations' effort during this 'giving season'.



If you see this post Bob and it can be worked out... My Santa Contact email is rhatten@aol.com. lol It doesn't hurt to ask... does it?

Best of Luck with the Pearl... I'm actually still a fan

Randy

Pretty cool
The Meucci days was when Earl was the man.
Not sure if he`s a good representative for Meucci tho...

On a side note: It`s strange that the big players in cue making like Meucci, McDermott, Lucasi don`t feature as sponsors.

As usual for Meucci...that is one ugly wrap.

Over the years, that cream color wrap was the worst! Nice cues with an ugly wrap.


I used to have Mike Erwin change the ugly wraps and put something on that would match colors in the forearm. Like the Rose cue...always had that changed to black with green or black with red spots.

If this is true, I'd love to see the monstrosity 70" cue that Bob Meucci comes up with. I can only imagine how crappy a 31"+ Black Dot shaft would play.

I can't wait to see what kind of spear Bob will create...he is quite IMAGINATIVE!

Whatever it is, you better start saving up for one right now, because the price of it will go up with Earl using it. He can shoot with ANYTHING, but him using it will convince people that it must hit GOOD if Earl likes it.

Meucci has made some GOOD cues over the years. I've never owned one, but I've hit balls with many and they were solid. The only thing I didn't like about them at the time was the shafts seemed to be a bit too "whippy" for me. I preferred a stiffer shaft so that I could keep the cue ball on a tighter string.

I've played with 5 Meucci's. Only two of them were newer, last 5-10 years or so. I've used the pre-dot shafts (best IMO), red dot shafts, and black dot shafts (worst IMO). The best hitting out of all of them was a 97-10 with a pre-dot shaft. All 4 other cues were actually decent quality, but I have seen some pretty poor QC examples. I never paid anymore than $200 for one (including a 21-03). Two were free (including the 97-10).

If there is a cue made for Earl, I highly doubt it will become production and it will exceed the QC of other Meucci cues by miles.

I owned a couple of Meucci cues back in the 80s and I would like to see some quality come back.

Can wait to see what Monster sized cue Meucci offers up... Mike Gulyassy WAS on tap to cut a tree down to 'fit his style'. Lomax was his jumper.. I wonder what happens on that side as well...

hmm ... post info updates please

thx
