I have recently purchased a Padmore cue but can't find any info on the cues history at all. The cue is maple, with a rosewood butt, it has 4 secondary splices with 1 thin lime veneer and the badge reads 'THE "PREMIER" MATCH CUE'. If you could fine any information or point me in the right direction that would be much appreciated.

What a great hobby and pastime, cue collecting is. The history and the chance to experiment with items much like those the champions of yesteryear used themselves.

hi mike yeah the stress to buy or not to buy, recently bought a brand new cue from thurstons, a 3/4 JOINTED lazer cue. now dont get me wrong its a lovely cue perfect balance and plays well, but its the finer details that let it down , such as the leather pad not being smoothed or in fact the end of the cue,a bit o a botch to be precise. all this leads me to belive in the old saying the old ones ar indeed the best, ps put in a bid for the john roberts got nowhere ah well

hi there like the website very informative and great pictures,

here is my query does steve davis still use the origional cue he used in the 80.s and if so what kind of work has he had done to it, i recently saw him play and it looked as if he had a riley logo on the butt and a round disc at the end, but after some google searching i discovered a picture of him with the cue as o one piece and a white square plate, so any info

many thanks
george

As "sorry Mick" from Stoke and having met Mike I can confirm that he is a genuine cue enthusiast and a thoroughly decent chap.This website is both informative and amusing (especially the blog) and is a credit and I hope an inspiration to others who may play or collect "old cues".Many a good tune can be played on an old fiddle.Younger players would do well to remember that.Regards Mick
