Palmer Second Catalog Model D - 03-30-2015, 08:05 PM

Butt is dead straight. Shaft has minor taper roll(as almost all do), but it's not even close to enough to be detrimental to anyone's game. The cue rolls straight(nothing leaves the table) and plays right. The points on the titlist blank are vibrant and quite close to even.

The original shaft was warped, so the late Dave Bollman of Q-Master in Virginia Beach made a new custom shaft and refinished the cue. The finish looks good, but in the interest of full disclosure you can feel a tiny bit of pitting in a couple small spots between veneers in the points. There are also a couple darker spots on the forearm. Not sure if it's in or under the finish. The joint collar on the replacement shaft is close in color to the original collar on the butt, but more figured. The shaft has a small beauty mark a couple inches back from the ferrule. The spots and collars are pictured below. I do not have the warped original shaft.

Butt: 16.6oz
Shaft: 3.7oz, tip diameter 12.61mm

The weight bolt weighs 0.6oz and could probably be switched out for an aluminum one to shave off a few tenths.

Sale price $550 shipped. Only trades I'd entertain would be for titlist conversions.


Thanks,

Richard

Bump. Still available.

Want to correct the tip diameter. It's actually 12.61mm

Bump. Looking for $550 shipped.

Still interested in trades. Always looking for titlist conversions and could use a break cue. +/- cash ok.

I made an aluminum bolt for the cue to save some weight. It's down to a little under 20oz now, from an original 20.3. Original bolt included.

No longer has the huge bumper. Has one that I cut down to look a little more like the originals. Will add a pic to this post later today.

Bump. $500 shipped for a straight, good playing and good looking Palmer!

I think there may be some glue failure at the joint sleeve. There's a slight rattle when the cue is tapped without the shaft. No noises whatsoever when assembled.
