1990s Helmstetter RCH VIP Model Name

1990s Helmstetter RCH VIP Model Name

I am looking to identify the model name of this Helmstetter RCH VIP cue (I think it's an I5 or an S5?). It is in excellent condition, having not been used for 20 years. It is from the early 1990s.

    It is an RCH-VIP I-5 (thats a letter i, number 5). Here it is from a 1992 Adam-Helmstetter brochure/catalog.

    (by the way, I split your original question into 3. This one, one for the Stout cue, and one for the question about joint types. You can find them by visiting your profile page. I should have some answers for those tonight when I have some more time.

    These are photos of a catalog, so the colors aren't done justice as they are in your photos.

    Here is the catalog cover for the Helmstetter RCH VIP line from 1992:


    ...and the back cover:

    Wonderful, thank you so much! I thought it was an I5, so good to know my hunch was right. And I appreciate (in advance) your answers on the Stout and joint types. This community has been great with answering things so quickly!

    Cheers, Tim
