I'm almost certain it's not.

Most likely a home brew.

Abe Rich for sure. I had 2 like it and sold one. Abe's nephew Howard is selling one just like it right now on EBAY. Check it out.

What caught my attention was the wrap. Diameter appears larger than the butt, not good. You don't want your wrap ''sticking out''. The builder could of not cut the indent for the wrap properly, or the new appearing wrap is non waxed irish linen.

I suppose it was a combination of the wrap and the bumper/buttcap. I have been wrong before.

Maybe someone wanted a thicker wrap area and it was built up and then wrapped.

A friend came into my office with this cue and a Tedecol billiard cue from Cali Colombia both with two shafts. The story she told him was that she got them from a former boyfriend who went to jail for his involvement with drugs. She didn't know anything about the cues.

The Rich cue has two shafts and is straight. It will now find a new home with a young player who plays in a small bar in town and will be joining our local league. He is super excited to know who made it and can't believe its 10 years older than he is. He says its a real antique LOL!
