Obviously, some makers/companies such as Scruggs, Frey and Southwest the cues appreciate over time, what about brands/makers that have taken a total nose dive or will in the future in terms of resale value?

Krown custom cues and Sly cues are the first names that come to my mind, but curious what others makers have met a similar fate

I think Mike Sigel did.
He closed shop and put the remaining cues on Ebay.

Did Dale Perry's cues ever sell at a decent price, or have they always been inexpensive?
Didn't think of Mike, def up there.

I was talking with a coworker when I started a new job
six years ago. We were discussing hobbies and found
that he liked to play pool too. He was telling me
about his prized pool cue, a Dale Perry, he paid 2k for.
I asked him if he knew about the ebay cues he was doing
now and that his prized cue wasnt worth squat anymore.
He couldnt bring himself to believe my story.

I'm sure your correct. I have only personally seen 3 and they were all between $1,200-2,200. I have no doubt
many have paid more, they were nice cues.

I actually bought Mikes last 5 cues. He made a very nice cue and they certainly decreased in value and now are getting hard to find for sale.

Don't think Frey cues will ever be on the same level as Scruggs or Southwest.

Dont believe Frey or Scruggs went up in value, especially of you take into account what today's dollar is worth compared to then.

I had 1 Scruggs about 25 years ago - it played great! Had it leaned against the table and it fell over on carpet and the forearm broke. Wanted to cry lol.

Have never seen a cue break like that hitting concrete let alone carpet. Shafts yes, Butts no.

I've seen it happen to a Gina and a McDaniel. Exact same circumstance, fell flat on carpeted floor in pool room.

A long time ago I was at a big tournament, and Dale Perry was there with several cues.
I was talking with Dale, and while there was a lull, Shaky Joe took me aside and said he did't think they were a very good investment.
I know guys with $1300 Dale Perry cues and they love them.yy

Many cues have dropped in value on the secondary market.
Some cues were hot, and now they're not, but they still have value.
The Dale Perry thing is unlike other situations.

I think the early Perrys are a good buy for a playing cue....they were good cues.
...and can be had at bargain basement prices.

I know a guy who paid $1.800 for his...canít get $500 for it now....and itís a good cue.

Doesn't someone on here still have some Wheatbucks?

Definitely Krown, Sly, & Perry. Some of the older ones: Zinzola, Eason, & Summers.

There are some on my "do not buy from" list who's problems aren't really common knowledge, as of yet.

Cousins Custom Cues. Gained popularity in Northern CA, supposedly the next best thing....today, almost worthless. I bought into the hype, now I have a nice break cue.
