Adams family? Cue ID help please? - 08-19-2019, 12:26 PM

An old man at the pool hall walked in and was shooting with this cue. I had put a tip on his normal player and this was his snooker cue/backup. I asked if it was for sale and he said of course because we donít have anymore snooker tables and he canít see anymore anyway. He sold it to a friend before I could make an offer on it, which kind of bummed me out. My buddy bought it for $200. The finish on the cue was near perfect and it seemed to have real Irish linen on it. What make and model do you think it is?

He used it for snooker because it had a thin shaft. Itís definitely not a snooker cue.

Viking made it I think.

Could have been sold under another brand name though. So the exact model may not be in a Viking catalog. They made cues under a number of names like Murrey, Excalibur, Lou Butera, and Gandy for example.

I suspect the bumper may not be original by the way.

I do believe it is an older model. Maybe early to mid seventies? Just a guess though.

It's worth what he paid.

Converted?

Maybe he used it as a snooker cue, but it's a pool cue as far as I can see.

No?

Z-75 Viking http://www.vikingcue.com/z-series/ Joint looks different than the options listed in that catalog. Should say "Viking" on butt-cap also. Asian copy maybe?

Thanks.

Something is wrong with my flash so I can't look at the catalogs. I tried earlier.

Extremely unlikely to be an Asian copy I think.

It does not say Viking on it, that's why I suggested it might have been another brand made by Viking and that the exact match might not be found in a Viking catalog.

I am pretty confident Viking made it. Although, Viking sold a lot of parts back then as well and it could have been made by someone else from Viking parts.
