They are great cues for a beginer, and the price is hard to beat also.

Yep. Good cues, great price. I've been playing with one for about 9 months now. Though I do have a Schmelke on the way. Btw, anyone know how to pronounce that? :p

Same cues as Helmstetter, Balabushka..

Adams also has a hit on thier hands IMHO with the new Classic series, those replica's are way cool, and economicaly priced... its just to bad they are made overseas, but then again id hate to think what some of those cues would cost if they were made by hmm, Joss? Viking? McDermott? Id suspect they would be in the thousands..

Look in the new Mueller catalog at the Adam Southwest copies. While I haven't held one in my hands yet...they look very sporty in the pics. Except for the Lion logo on the forearm. I'm sure Ryan at Rat cues can fill us in on the quality.:)

They do look pretty sporty. Page 40 if anyone's wondering.

Thanks. I'm going to hate when people ask me what kind of cue it is.

# AA-3 is my favorite out of the Southwest copies, also look at AH-12, what would it cost to have something like that custom made? Id bet more than 352$ That cue is awsome...

That's the AD-4. Same one I have. Though the one in the picture looks to be made especially for photos.

i believe that model is made in China and the more expensive classic series are made in Japan. if these were made in USA it would have rounded points just like all American production cues.

Sure..... though most current models have some type of logo.. be it a Bushka or a Helmstetter "signature"...

I've been impressed with the quality of these cues. I think they are great for the money. I believe they are made in Japan and not China.

I have an Adams cue that I bought new in 1976, model AA-24. No LOGO on this cue.

Plus, they have the opition to order custom cues directly from them....

Pick out everything...points, woods, splices,veneers, you name it... pay them 50% and get the cue in 5-6 months....

I think the Southwest copies are called the Advanced Line.....might be wrong...

Mike Morgan is the guy behind those designs, BTW

I didn't even see that Adam was doing the SW style. I like that A-2. Pretty sporty. Be sweet with a Ryan leather wrap. Like as an X-Mas gift. *Uhem*

The Classic series cues are made in Japan. I suspect that quality control is far more stringent in Japan than China.

I love the old school look.

I bought one several years ago and the wrap came loose. I sent it back to where I bought it and they said they was sending back to the manufacture. I had it about 6 months and they would stand behind it and make the repairs. I wound up having to pay to have it re-wrapped. As far as I am concerned I will never buy another one.
