ID Vintage Pool Cue Stick with No Name

Does anyone know what kind of pool cue this is?

There's no name and a good friend of mine gave it to me from an auction he won. I know it's a vintage pool cue but there is no name on it. I'm very curious

Can anyone tell me if they know who makes this pool cue stick?

    It is an inexpensive generic pool cue made in China.

    Why do you say that?

    It has ivory on the joint and butt, and it's hand wrapped. The pool cue is straight as well.

    @chopdoc, As I read more of your cue identifications and comparisons, I'm starting to feel like you do not like "Asian" carpentry, and I'm a little offended by your remarks and your answer to my question. Being that I'm Asian myself let me explain something to you.

    Some of the finest woodworkers, architects, and carpenters ARE Asians.

    I agree that everything that is made in China is usually cheaply made. However, the Japanese take pride in their work and it will last lifetimes over. Not to mention, the world's best pool players are Asian as well.

    There are MANY different "Asians". You shouldn't base Asians on the reputation of "Chinese" craftsmanship. There's a difference.

    I'm not sure why you think that. I have a fairly large cue collection and many of my cues are in fact Asian. In fact, I have a great collection of Mizerak, Mizerak Pro, Cobra, and Cobra Pro cues, all made in China and I like them very much. The Mizerak Pro and Cobra Pro models are decent pool cues. The others are similar in quality to the one you post, but they are branded. I collect them because of the history associated with Steve Mizerak and Harold Miller.

    My opinions are objective.

    I said it is an "Inexpensive generic cue made in China." These pool cues were sold under various brand names, hence the "generic" label I put on it. Nothing in my statement derided it in any way. I even used the word "inexpensive" rather than "cheap". Unless you think identifying the nation of origin is an insult? I don't see how.

    There are also relatively expensive cues made in Asia, including some "high end" custom cues.

    To be more specific, the materials and workmanship in your pictured cue are not so great, in spite of what might be possible in an Asian cue. And it was made in China.

    There are a couple cue companies that sold cues made both in China and in Japan and it can be difficult to tell where the cue was made as the old catalogs do not differentiate that.

    I have many pool cues, including fine custom and bespoke cues. Your cue is not such a cue. The wrap is made from a synthetic material, the joint collar is made from inexpensive PVC material, the points are uneven because when the cue blank was turned, it was off-center in the lathe. At least it is made from actual maple that was imported from North America.

    Even the more expensive cues made in China are made from Ramin wood, which has been harvested to the point of endangerment. It was used a great deal in furniture. It is a poor wood for use in pool cue shafts, but still it was used extensively for decades because it was relatively inexpensive compared to importing Maple.

    Further, I highly recommend Players brand pool cues to beginners, and they are made in Asia.
