Calling all pool cue experts. Help identify a cue? - 10-10-2017, 12:25 PM

Does anyone have any idea who made this cue, or what cue company it is from?

I do not own it, but I am interested in buying it.

It is for sale locally, and the seller wants $400 for it.

He says that it does not have any identifying marks on it.

As you can see, one of the shafts is a Lucasi shaft, but hopefully that does not throw you off, about who may have made the cue.

I just thought it looks really interesting.

Thanks for any opinions about the cue.

You always start at Phillippi or Jensen for unknown cues like this...

Maybe an old Thomas Wayne.

Thanks. So it appears to be a very good quality cue to you? I assume so, since you mentioned those great cue makers.

Okay, so does it appear to be a good quality cue? Thanks.

Does $400 sound like too much (overpriced?) for an unknown cue like that?

It appears to have some nice BEM in the forearm. Not sure if that spells quality though. I am crazy about highly figured BEM.

Yeah, that is true. Shafts can be replaced though.

What size pin? This will help. If it's 5/16x14 my guess it is a Late model discontinued 'Black' Label Mali series V series about $250-$300 new with MALI sanded and buffed off cap.

-Kat,

-Kat,
Do people purposely sand the logos off of cues, in order to make them more mysterious and maybe more desirable? That is interesting info. Thanks.

On an off topic note, there is a very nice looking Mali on eBay (4 points with veneers into BEM forearm I think, and MOP inlays in the butt). Looks like it has a big 3/8x10 pin. Very nice looking cue. Seller is asking $200 for it. I think it is a green label Mali. I remember reading that some of them were made by the Adam cue company? Is that true?

Sanding the logo off in order to make something more mysterious and maybe more desirable. Very neat and interesting concept. I am wondering if that would work with an ex with a tramp stamp? Sorry for being off-topic just thinking out loud

My wife was interested in one of those. I told her not to change a thing, but she insisted on getting a tattoo.

We compromised. She got a tattoo of the small of her back on the small of her back.
