Early Adams Helmstetter cues

Hello, thought I might get some info on these Vintage Adams snooker cues. Stamped by Helmstetter . Are these late 60s or early 70s. Nothing to fancy but I enjoy them very much. I guess they are not worth alot
but I play with them still and are part of my collection

Never saw them before. Nice cues.

How do they play? Do you play snooker, or use them for pool?

Thanks for your reply, one of them needs a tip but I use the other for both snooker and pool. When I grew up in Toronto there was a massive billiard room that had all snooker tables and that is what I played. Although I love all cue games. Prefer snooker cue for all games, feels like a scalpel. Just my preference

Very nice. It always seemed to me, those proficient at snooker have a more precise cue delivery. At lease at the amateur level. Something to do with the smaller diameter balls & smaller tips.

Thank you, Have posted a few more pics, hopefully someone can provide an age estimate. One came with a beautiful old heavy wood case that was personalized. And provided a picture of joints, any info on these would be great. Would love to know how many smokey pubs and halls these cues have been in.
