Cue popularity by region - 09-17-2019, 06:48 AM

Okay guys this is my first post but this is a question Iíve been thinking about for the last couple of weeks.

Does anyone else notice that certain cue makers are more prominent in your region? Here in the south it seems like this is meucci country with the exception of a handful of schons and McDermotts.

Meucci cues are considered the best thing since white bread down here lol.

What cues are most popular in your part of the country?

Top Chicago cue maker in that era was Craig Peterson

Custom cue-makers that are known for being excellent craftsmen are popular nationwide
and aren’t limited to any particular region. Common sense tells you these cue-makers
would have a following with pool players in their neck of the woods but if you examine
their sales records, the’ popularity of their cues extended coast to coast, not just a region.

Poolhall60561 is correct about the Midwest. There are plenty of Diveney cues in the hands of good players out here.

Common sense would say you don't want to bet there werentmore Scruggs cues sold within 200mi radius of Baltimore than any other equally-sized circle.

Sorry Joe Gold,

But, I could never afford one.
I’m sorry I didn’t buy his plane Jane cue for $900 back in the day. It came with 2 shafts. Probably $1800 today

Parrot cues were immensely popular in the VA/VA Beach region. Took me years to finally track one down.
