What exactly was the dale perry issue that lead to the decline of value of his cues? I never really heard the cause of that.

If you sink big bucks into a custom and the value goes down too bad.

If you buy a production cue you know it's going to go down in value going in.

Personally I think spending more than $500 on a pure playing cue is foolish.
Spending big bucks on a cue for collecting, go for it.


Im with you
But with a 75 dollar players sp

A coworker had a lucasi and i gave it a go
Felt like a great player , his was cheap too

He went to a Ebay-based selling method. He sold cues at prices that undermined the values of the higher-end customs he had been making. Guys that had paid ,say, 1500 for a cue were hard pressed to get a third of that back. As for his current stuff? IMO they might the best cues out there for the $$. There are about 5-6 guys at my local 'hall that use or have used DP cues. The only reason i sold mine was i wanted a slimmer handle cue. Think i gave 120bux for it. Crazy.

And sometimes a unique custom design will increase in value a great deal.

I recall the Serpent Cue Ernie G made for a client that was a one of a kind.
I could have scored that cue from Bill Grassley back in 2013 for about $7.5k

It was listed on Cornerstone Cues for awhile but I bought my EP cue instead.
That cue was traded back to Bill and it is listed at $12,500....duh....my EP cue
which happens to also be a one of a kind hasn’t jumped in value like that and
Ed is no slouch when it comes to cue-making. Some cues will definitely increase
and some won’t and actually depreciate in value. The market is a fickle thing but
great cues from great cue-makers will retain their value & some will increase a lot.

The only reason I can think is that they were actually making good cues back in the 80ís before they started putting out complete shit to cash in on their popularity in the 90s so maybe people who are fans of the cue are chasing those? To each his own I guess.. lol

I don't get it, but outside of the "custom biome" they're very popular cues. We are the only group looking down on Moochies. I like them from the M series, back. It really does amaze me when you look at them now, and people see the reflective back-ends and think they're real inlays. I'm like, you paid a G for a "custom" BCM with stickers, and then was able to sell it for another G to someone in the FB group?!? And, I'm over here taking a loss on a Scruggs. LOL. No sense.

EDIT: the Meucci cues I mentioned are indeed inlaid. Apologies for my assumptions of stickers.

The issue? Well dealers and distributors were not selling DP Cues fast enough.

They were just sitting and not enough people were buying.


Dale was making them faster and the inventory just got too big so

....welcome Dale Perry to Ebay. The rest is history. Great cues!


That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Dale Perry Cues - 10-23-2019, 10:02 AM

After reading the comments about Dale Perry cues in this and other threads I thought I would find out for myself so I picked up one of his cues on eBay this past week. Received it Monday, shot a few racks with it yesterday, and I couldn't be happier with it. Very nice fit and finish, excellent balance, and it plays better than a Pechauer that I paid nearly five times as much for!

If anybody wants to see pics of it just check out the eBay auction link at:

I've hit with one Varney player and one breaker. I would have definitely ordered one of each from him.

I also miss the raffles, I won a new Southwest Satin and a new 2x4 Jack Justis case and my total investment was 20.00.

I gotta agree with you on this - most of the Meucci designs I have seen are godawful. I have a Meucci as my main shooter, and really like how it plays, but it is just a plain off-white butt with a black wrap and black dot shaft. Bought it new a few years ago for $200 from a friend who stops by Bob's shop once or twice a year and picks up "blems." I can't find any flaws on this one, though.
