Hope the photos are good. What is this stick?
Teach me why you say so quickly so I don't keep offering up crap. The stick is 56.5 inches and weighs
17oz.. 4 points with 4 veneers-from the outside in they are blue,yellow,red, green. full splice --actually may
be two full splices as the lighter broader part of the points is one piece. The bumper shows that the stick has
had long use.All rings and veneers are smooth as is the joint. Why is it so easy to put it down? This is a nice cue.
This is a nice cue.
very low quality, dead giveaway is the pin in the shaft
As far as how it is identified so quickly, the joint type is the first most obvious thing.
That joint type has only been used on inexpensive cues.
That's not quite accurate Doc. For the most part, you're correct. That said, Eddie Laube made all of his cues with his patented implex joint, with the screw in the shaft. They were fantastic playing cues, and Eddie said that they were so finely machined that any shaft he ever made would match up perfectly with any butt he ever made. I had one of his early cues for many years...terrific playing cue...just too heavy for me. The cue in this thread is a cheap Asian import.
EDIT: I see that you mentioned Spain and a couple of others, but forgot to include Eddie Laube!
