They're not that big. https://caromcuestore.com/product/ad...mm-pro-shafts/ Bottom line is the pins were replaced. Didn't come from ADAM with funky, mis-matched pins.

These pix might help. The wrapless butt is warped. The shafts fit both even though they seem different.

The sticker on the warped butt should identify it.

If the pins were added later, it would mean it happened twice and bith coincidentally wound up with me over time

I'm sticking to my guns here. Those brass pins do not look like a factory item. Seen quite a few in person and hundreds of pics and never seen one with pins like these. IF these came this way this could be one of the rarest ADAM cues ever. I don't believe that to be the case.

Well, if they did come that way, my last, Hail Mary guess is that they are pool cues intended for the Canadian or European market, where people would have possibly been more familiar with a pin in the shaft configuration.

Ya think?? That would make it rarer still. I think its just home-brew job. Probably replaced the ferrules as well.

I found this. If you click on the pihoto, it will take to a picture of the joint: https://www.reddit.com/r/billiards/c...m_cue_id_help/

Can't see the pin. That joint pic is not the same cue. That cue in first couple pics is the cue but you can't see the joint screw.

Found a couple pics of old ADAM SNOOKER, not carom, cues that had a joint much like this one. Most likely this is a snooker cue.

The poc on reddit shows the one as model S/T 10, and my sticker is S/T 1; therefore, the solution is to be cound in the Adam catalog for that model series.

Anyone here that might have it?

I've tried to find old ADAM stuff in the past. Nothing out there. Its an S/T10. Likely a snooker, not carom, cue. Found one pic of an old snooker cue with a joint much like this one. http://www.billiardsforum.com/pool-c...tion-and-value

Found a pic postdd in 2012 by txironhead which shows a standard pool cue pin. It was identified by jayman as a S/T1. So the theory of a shaft and. cue being made over looks likely.

Is Jayman still on AZB?

Don't know. Do a "Community" search. They did make some snooker cues with shafts a lot like those you show. That's a real old real basic ADAM model. Finding date info on those is almost impossible. I've done these searches before to no avail

I think the possibility of it being made for the Canadian or European market is also still plausible.
