Please help to identify this cue - 09-18-2020, 04:25 AM

This is a very nice looking cue, to me it looks like a Adams, however I just don't know for sure, it has sharp points, but they are not all the same length. Leather wrap and has a 5/16 x 14 joint. I looked in the blue book 3 on page 107 has some similar, but does not have this one. Please let me know what you think.
Thanks
Tom

It does look like an Adam cue, but the shaft does not look to be the original one as it has a thinner metal ring and thicker black ring


Will "MONSOON" & a SEARING! NO SPOT NEEDED!!

I have a lot of older Adam catalogs and I couldn't find it. The Adam cues I've seen have 5/16 X 18 joints. Very few have the Bushka ring ahead of the wrap. It has a Balabushka appearance. I wonder if it could be something from their GB line?

By the way, I think it's a great looking cue. Nice find whatever it is.

It is one of the Balabushka remake cues. The shaft is not original

EDIT: Sorry, HOF ***

You beat me to it, it was the Adam replica of the cue Irving Crane used.

All the best,

That seems about 875.00 too high to me.

Speaking of Irving Crane I wonder if anybody knows what cue he used in the 150 and out match with Balsis.

https://youtu.be/LYd2eaxSP8g?t=3828

You get a quick look at the butt as he puts in in the case at the end of the match. 1:03:48 of the video. It doesn't appear to be this particular design.
