Thank you - 09-27-2012, 08:34 PM

Dear largo,

You are just a font of information. I didn't think that Rambo made them all but I did think that he probably trained a lot of good cuemakers.

Thanks for having me include U.J. Sometimes I'm so stupid.

Thank you for your input.

Jay

There was a conspicuous absence of the characteristic Rambo script on the cue.

Lines I like to hear:

I put myself through college shooting pool.

I play in a pool league.

I'll play anyone in this bar for $100.

Cecil P. “Buddy” Hall – How many different cues did he use to win?

Buddy Hall played with Meucci's, Huebler's, and Bludworth's.
In that Miz vs. Wiley match Buddy makes reference to CJ playing with one of "his". The short black joint would suggest that was one of his Blud's at the time.

I had the rare opportunity to watch Varner close the doors at Executive Billiards in Redwood City CA around 96-97, Bob Jewitt had him playing the ghost either 14:1 or 15 ball rotation, he didn't stop till well after the sun came up. He was shooting with a Meucci 97-20 with a different(all white) joint collar.

True enough, but wasn't he done competing by then? I thought he played with a Rambow during most of his competitive career, but I could be wrong...He also had a beautiful Helmstetter for a few years, too, I think in the early-mid 70's?

Sounds like that might be some sort of upstart version of Cuetec or something.

I think those Stix were before Cuetec. Maybe they were bought out and re-branded.
