Back in the 60's when I first took up the game I acquired two new aluminum cues, played a few years, then stored them away for 35 years. When I came back to the game 3 years ago I learned metal didn't replace wood in pool like it did in golf equipment over the years, so it was time to invest in some wood. If anybody's interested in a bulletproof, weatherproof, warp-proof player, collection piece, or just a conversation piece, they're both for sale. The blue one is a True-Cue, made in Pittsburgh PA, 19oz. The Gold one is more of a snooker size shaft at 11mm, made by Apollo of England, also 19 oz. Both are in nice shape, with only minor blemishes, and fresh layered tips when they came out of retirement. Paypal is OK,or USPS money order. $27.50 each or $50 for both including US shipping.
