Cue identification help - 08-22-2019, 10:43 AM

I picked up this stick really cheap...lol...the case and extra ultra soft tips were worth what I paid and I have never seen a piloted joint like this one. It's straight as an arrow and shoots ok. There are no maker marks on it. Nothing under the butt either. It's 57" and weighs 19. Can anyone help identify it? Thanks

I have no idea who made the cue, but the length, shrouded shaft insert, and short pin say 1960s.

The maple forearm looks out of place, possibly indicating that the forearm had been broken and repaired.

Lots of aluminum, even worse


Make sure you check your references before you buy on this site. Even a mod here engages in bad business!

That cue is from the early to mid 1980s- from Asia - I actually owned one once and it came in the same case with the same red interior- had exact same wrap too. Somebody gave it to me as a gift- thinking, since I played a lot of pool- that it would be one I could actually use! LOL- but their intentions were good and I made a big fuss over it- I actually carried it into rooms at times - with that plastic case, back in the 80s - I looked like the biggest fish in the pond LOL. Quickly switched to a decent house cue when the $$ got serious- as that shaft was seriously deficient!
