Can You Identify This Cue Stick?

By February 1, 2013

Follow me on:

vintage-cueLooking for help in identifying the cue stick at: Vintage Cue.

Best guess is it is not a George Balabushka, Frank Paradise or a Gus Szamboti cue, but it has markings that indicate to me it is a classic 70's or 1960's cue stick. Much obliged for your help. Send me an e-mail!

My gut says it is an Adam Cue from the Adam Cue Company in NYC.

I agree with the previous poster, looks like an Adams to me. I have an Adams (Iberia model) from the 70s left to me by a friend. It’s fancier but the Mother of Pearl inlays, joint, and coloring of the points looks very similar. Adams named some of their cues after airlines in that era, hence Iberia.

I would look to showman, out of Florida. The solid foreman points look like his work.
