Could Someone Help Identify This Pool Cue?

Could Someone Help Identify This Pool Cue?

I recently inherited this pool cue.

Much to my dismay, I know very little about cues. So I thought I would try this forum since it's filled with pool aficionados.

I searched online to identify the cue, but am unable to come to an incontrovertible conclusion.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone for your time.

    Looks like a McDermott stamp on that weight bolt.

    I don't recall seeing that model.

    I also couldn't find this model in the McDermott cue archives (nor in the current collection).

    Hmm, well shoot.

    Is there a possibility it is an old Custom made cue?

    Possible? Yes.

    Likely? I don't think so.

    I have examined numerous old McDermott cues, including one-off custom McDermotts from all the way back in 1975 when they were built in his garage.

    Can we get a close-up of the pin, and both joint faces please?

    That looks like one of their later weight bolts, not an earlier one.

    Weight bolts for McDermott pool cues come in two sizes, a slim style at 1/2" and a fat style at 3/4". The slim style is the bolt used for models made after the early 2000's. The fat style is used for models made prior to the mid 90's. Cues made between the mid 90's and early 2000's may have either bolt, please verify before purchasing. All are removable from the bottom of the cues and are not stackable. You can change the weight bolts by using a hex head, or an allen head wrench.

    • Slim Style:1/2" diameter at the base
    • Fat Style: 3/4" diameter at the base

    You said you inherited the cue? Do you have any idea when the person you inherited it from got it? Any idea at all?

    Thanks for the responses everyone. I really do appreciate you all trying to identify this pool cue.

    @Chopdoc... here are some pictures of the weight bolt. If you need different ones feel free to let me know.

    Unfortunately, I have no background information on the cue or where he would have gotten it at/from. I know he used to shoot in pool leagues in the 1980s and 1990s but I am not sure if he used this specific cue.

    So far it's a mystery cue!

    Looks like a late model McD bolt.

    Might want to contact McDermott to see if they can ID the cue.

    Alright. I will do so! Thanks!
