Hoppe? Titlist? - 11-11-2019, 11:41 AM

I'm curious how to tell one from the other. Aren't both styles similar? Could I please see some pics? My Josey was done in the old pantograph method...4 needle sharp & even points with 4 veneers. Birds eye maple forearm, ebony below the wrap with a black butt cap. No points below the wrap. Yet some have told me it's a Hoppe style, others have said Titlist. All I really know is that I like it's hit...

A hoppe is a traditionally a titlist forearm with a hoppe ring. No ring, no hoppe.

A "Hoppe" style means it has a white ring above a black buttplate

A "Titlist" style is the classic Brunswick veneer stack of natural, brown, teal, purple (from inside to outside)

Thanks...then mine is neither, I guess. I'm terrible with a camera, but here's a shot of the veneers and the butt.

Is that a Navy/White wrap -- can you take a few pictures of your cue in natural light please?

Right now I'm thinking of replacing some of my Irish linen with stacked leather or different color spec, and the navy/white combo was one I was looking at...just want to see it better compared to the other colors in your cue.

Sorry, the old point & shoot Nikon died on me, haven't replaced it. But probably washed out a bit by the flash. Under normal light, it looks black/white spec.

Are you thinking of the Willie Hoppe Professional model ? Veneers, with leather wrap and Hoppe ring with the blue or green label on the butt

If you're thinking of having any kind of wrap replaced, have it done by Lance Cowles (posts here as Bossman69). Find Lance on FB at Cuesports of Battle Creek. He does all of the stacked leather wraps (and other materials too) for Seyberts. Contact him directly to cut out the middleman and get a better deal. His quality is the best available, and he guarantees everything that goes out his shop. He's also one of the top instructors in the country, and specializes in teaching 1-pkt.

Yeah, my info was always:

Titlist = one piece cue, classic veneers , purple,
peacock, brown, natural.. butt is usually gonco
alves.. some are purple heart, I’ve only seen
one that was ebony or rosewood.

Hoppe= two piece cue, leather wrap,
Ivory ‘Hoppe’ ring on end of butt, no
bumper, brass piloted joint, veneers
vary, and butt wood varies. $.02

A Hoppe style cue has a white Hoppe ring instead of a butt cap.
Not to be confused with the two piece Brunswick Willie Hoppe signature cues which may or may not have an ivory Hoppe ring.
I had an old one with both the big black plastic butt cap you see on some old Brunswicks, and it also had an ivory Hoppe ring.

The titlist was the veneered blank designed by Rambow used for house cues, 2-piece signature cues, Herman Rambow cues, Balabushkas, etc. some had Hoppe rings and some had the traditional looking butt cap
