ID Cobra Professional Cue Model


ID Cobra Professional Cue Model

I've had this Cobra Professional cue and Cobra oak cue case for about 23 years now.

I love it. It shoots a lot like my gold label Joss cue. I own a dozen custom cue from Massey, to McDermott and Joss to vikings.

This Cobra anything but a $40 dime store cue. It is 100% authentic.

    Cobra Professional cues are a completely different matter than the standard Cobra pool cues. They are labeled "Cobra Professional" clearly. Always. They were only sold through cue dealers. I have the original dealer promotional materials.

    The standard Cobra cue shown where you originally posted is a $50 cue. It is a Cobra cue, not a Cobra Professional cue.

    But even Cobra Professional cues are not worth a lot. The top two cues in the Cobra Professional cue line generally pull anywhere from $150 to $200 in excellent condition.

    It clearly states professional on the butt, below the Cobra logo.

    The oak cue case with the Cobra logo silk-screened on it makes this cue a unicorn.

    What now smarty pants?

    Smarty pants? I didn't say you didn't have one. I said the posted cue at the top of the thread you originally posted to, isn't one.

    Nice to see you have the bottom of the line Cobra Professional cue. Stained with red chalk. They came with two shafts. Often the dealers would keep one of them and sell it separate, basically scamming you out of a shaft.

    You want a rare bird? I have the Cobra Professional jump/break cue. I also have the top of the line Cobra Professional cue in mint condition, as well as a couple others, all in the original mint condition cue cases with the original tags. I also have the complete Cobra Professional dealer catalog and marketing materials

    I also have communicated with the family of Harold Miller and have assembled, more-or-less, the complete history of Cobra Professional and Mizerak Professional cues.

    Some sample pics for you. That's the top-of-the-line Cobra Professional cue. I have both original shafts and the original joint protectors. Also in the pic is the top-of-the-line Mizerak Professional cue, for which I also have both original shafts and joint protectors:

    Oh what the heck.

    Here is the jump/break as well.

    Oh- and it has a very rare curly maple original shaft.

    The tags:

    Now what?

    Smarty pants?

    Well, I showed you some Cobra Professional cues. Sorry they are better than yours.

    Sorry for the Huebler H-14 cue in the pic. It just happened to be there. Oh, that's a rare original 60 inch Huebler cue with three original shafts, original cue case, with keys, original cue tags, and the original Huebler joint protectors. It also has extremely rare thin veneers compared to the standard catalog Huebler H-14 cue. In fact, let me know if you see another one. I never have.

    You have a dozen cues? I have over a hundred.

    So I guess that's now what.

    Oh yeah, well I have a pony and it has magical powers.

    I have red felt on my pool table, thus red chalk is used.

    What you call "bottom of the barrel" seems to have served me very well in the 25+ years since it was given to me by the owner of Cobra cues along with the oak case from Cobra when I built his trade show booth in Atlanta in the early 1990s.

    It shoots exactly like a mid 1980s Joss Gold Label cue I own, and shoots better than some of the Schon and McDermott cues I have. I love the cue and that's all that freaking matters.

    But if I had to put a dollar amount on it I will bet you my cue against your cue in a game of 8-ball, 9-ball, 10-ball, 3-ball. You tell me.

  5. CecilBDementoChopdoc on 8/25/2019 11:49:12 AM

    Wow, you are a pistol, eh?

    I never said your cue was "bottom of the barrel". I said it was bottom of the line.

    I am glad you like it.

    You posted your cue in the cue identification section on someone else's question about a standard Cobra cue instead of starting a new question for your own cue. I have already nailed down the model on the original question and was correct. I was right about the originally posted cue.

    I was also correct about your cue. I did not post the exact model of your cue because you didn't ask, and you seem uninterested.

    Your Cobra Professional model is a Cobra CP-07 cue. It is missing the original velvet case and original joint protectors.

    Thanks for citing the model number of my cue.

    The cue didn't come with a velvet case. As I said previously, the owner of Cobra cues gave me this cue and matching custom oak case as a thank you for building his trade show booth. I didn't pay one thin dime for any of it, but if I had, I would've certainly been more happy with an ultra rare limited edition Cobra oak case than a $2 piece of fabric.

  7. CecilBDementoChopdoc on 8/28/2019 11:39:24 AM

    I'm glad you like the case. I don't have that exact one.

    I have the Cobra oak 1x2 version that holds both original shafts, and I have the Cobra 1x2 snakeskin covered Fellini style tube case. Neither of these cases appeared in the catalogs, so I have no model numbers for them. Both have the Cobra logo.

    Of course, I have the original Cobra velvet sleeves as well.

    I can't claim to have gotten them for free, but I did get them cheap, as these cues are not worth much.

    I did get some of the original Cobra sales and marketing materials after Harold Miller died.

    Enjoy the cue and case.
