Old mahogany colored linen phenolic is no longer produced. The sources previously mentioned do not have anything like the old mahogany. Good luck finding any because it's rare to find and most people that have any won't sell it.

as much as anyone has got. how much u got that would be great

Roger, I'm not willing to sell everything but may be persuaded into a slicing off enough for one or two cue's. I'm not at home so can't look but tomorrow I will confirm that what I have is what you want and we can go from there.

Any tests or?

These are both old. But, the top one is the best ever of all linen imo.
So freaking clean and fine.
The bottom one is still a hundred times better than the stuff you get from Atlas now. It darkens really nicely with finish .
But, the fine mahogany ROLLED LINEN is no longer produced.
One of those things I wished I bought a freaking warehouse-full in two decades ago.
Same goes for the other non-Atlas fiber tube .
I've been trying to get 40 feet of them and have been stumped so far . Sorry, can't sell any for now. Good luck in your search.

I was unaware they were different products so I am assuming what I have is NOT what he wants.

You are correct, it has not been produced for years. I was told that it was inconsistent, blotchy, unsellable and the manufacturer won't take returns.

They have something sort of close now but it will not match old construction.
