    Cuttyhunk Cortland Linen

    I came across a couple of 50 yd. spools of vintage Cortland Linen No. 9, 27 lb. test and grabbed them at what I believe to be a decent price in the hopes that I will be able to have a vintage cue appropriately restored if/when I come across one worthy in the future. For me, the only downside...

    ferrule discolored

    I changed the tip on a friends cheap "walmart type" cue the other day, and the ferrule material started to turn kind of opaque after I applied the glue. It was milky white before the application. Is this because I used the normal Gorilla superglue or because it is just a cheap and crappy ferrule?

    cue model numbers

    I don't understand how people CONSTANTLY ask on groups/forums, etc. what model of XXX brand production cue they own. If they are smart enough to know how to start a thread AND post pictures, how can they not find maker catalogs in a normal google search? 90% of them are relatively current...

    Essential Tremors

    Do any of you guys suffer from essential tremors, and if so, do you do anything that is effective in their reduction? Mine seem to be pretty severe for the first 1/2 hour or so, then seem to settle down some.

    What adhesive should I use?

    I was playing last week with an early '80s 5/16X18 piloted joint cue. After a hard stroked shot, I noticed the shaft was way off. I generally check to make sure my cue is screwed together tightly about once every 2-3 games. The cue does not normally become loose during play. Basically, the...

    shafts for old cues

    So what would you do. You buy a vintage cue that comes with 2 or more shafts, and they all have a decent amount of roll and/or are <12.5 in diameter, or both. Knowing that most potential purchasers want "very straight" and full shafts, do you leave it alone, or would you: * Keep the fullest...

    Thoughts on collectibility

    Just curious what you guys think about future collectability of cues that were owned by well known shortstops as opposed to actual touring pros. Worth more? I have seen a couple recently for sale and wondering if it makes much of a difference. Thanks.

    Predator Sneaky

    I have had a cue made with a Predator butt (green veneer version) for about 5 years. It is unmarked, but that isn't too hard to accomplish. My question is: Did Predator make any sneakies back then with a 3/8X10 pin, or were they all uniloc? The shaft I got with it does not match the cue. My...

    Looking for old Omen I had back in 2006

    I would like to find an Omen I owned back in 2006. I can't remember who I sold it to, but I think it was someone in California. It was a 6 point hi-lo cue with amboyna burl points into ebony with a single holly veneer. Black joint collar with check ringwork at joint and at the bottom of...

    Vintage Brunswick cues

    I recently started a thread on Archived Cue Catalogs and was browsing through the older Brunswick catalogs on Tate's old Palmercollector website and noticed that the Titlists in the earlier catalogs only have 2 veneers, not the typical 4 that I always see on the actual cues. My question is...

    Vintage Viking redone?

    Sent pics to Viking and hoping to find out more about this cue. Looks to be a legit Z or H-240, but joint pin puzzles me, as I didn't think this pin came out of there shop until several years later. Maybe the cue was sent in to be reworked and they changed the pin? Anyway, the rest of the cue...
