Identify a Huebler Pool Cue Stick


Identify a Huebler Pool Cue Stick

I am just looking to see who knows anything about this Huebler pool stick or can identify it.

I was offered $400 for it a few years ago. The store owner said I could get more for it if I hold on to it.

    You should have taken the $400 a few years ago. No question. For sure. The person that made the offer didn't know what they were doing.

    You mentioned a store owner? What kind of store?

    I picked up the same model a few months ago for a friend. I think I paid $180 for it. I gave it to him for what I paid. He was looking for a Huebler.

    I would guess maybe $250 to $300 on eBay, at best. Maybe less. It's easy to check the sold listings on eBay. The cue at shown on the original question "Identify Huebler Cue Stick" you posted to is a $100 cue. Maybe 125 or 150 on a really good day.

    Huebler prices did go up after he died, but it's the higher models and the Huebler Custom Shop cues that really were most affected.

    Right now the price increases you will see in the common catalog Huebler cues are mostly just going to follow inflation, so it's not a true gain in value. The value could in fact go down as the market fluctuates. Certain desirable models do attract better money, and will go up more.

    Cool cue. I have several Huebler cues and enjoy them.

    I have a Huebler H-14 cue from about 1980. That was the top model in the catalog. I might get $400 - $450 for it with one shaft. But I have three original shafts with mine. One 29 inch and two 31 inch. I also have the original Huebler Deluxe cue case, Huebler joint protectors, and original tags. Hard to say what the whole package would be worth.

    I don't know your model number off the top of my head.

    Right on.

    Too bad I didn't take the offer. It was my first cue, and I played someone for it.

    I appreciate your time. Take care!

    First cue? Priceless.

    I still have mine since 1985.

    Enjoy it!

    Here is a Huebler H-14 that did not sell for $250. I thought it was a steal at $250.

    Just goes to show how wrong we can be.

    Vintage Huebler Four Point Cue

    • Price: US $250.00 (Reserve not met)

    Huebler pool cue and case. Condition is Used. Cue is in very good condition with original shaft. The wrap on the cue is covered as Paul had done on some of his cues. This is a custom cue that was in most cases only built on special order. This is now your chance to buy a piece of Paul Huebler's finest work.

    I see that cue has been relisted and now has 6 bids, with the highest current at $165.50.

    I think it might be a Huebler ES-1 cue from the Huebler elite series.

    From the brochure:

    The Huebler Elite Series!

    Whoever said, "It isn't nice to fool with Mother Nature," didn't say you can't give the lady a hand now and then.

    What do the six new models have in common? Gorgeous birdseye maple, stainless steel joints, black fiber collars, ivory or black cyro buttplates, fiber ferrules and La Pro tips. And the customary built-in Huebler quality, value and service.

    Huebler ES-1 - Birdseye maple butt stained purple in photo (so it almost looks tropical!) with ebony inlaid points. The basic four-prong design never looked more clean or noble, Also available stained in red, blue, green, gray, black, yellow, brown and antique.

    Actually, I think it's a Huebler HS-1 cue.

    Good catch. Yeah, I wasn't sure about that one...

    The style of the points in the ES-1 seems similar to the cue in question, but perhaps the HS-1 has that same style of point - I just can't make them out as well in the photo.

  7. user1569600365Chopdoc on 10/2/2019 5:36:56 AM

    I have the same trouble. Can't see if they are sharp points or rounded in the catalog pic I found.

    But it has the right logo.

    The cue you posted is wrapless.

    So far, the HS-1 cues I find in my searches have sharp points.

    Maybe this is a later version? Maybe a completely different model? Not sure.

    But we are getting closer.

    I sold one to a friend recently as I said. But I think it had sharp points, not sure. I picked up the cue specifically for him because he wanted a Huebler. I never bothered to identify the model, but I think he did. I'll ask him when I talk to him.

    @Chopdoc and @billiardsforum,

    Where you do search for Huebler cues?

    Do you have any for sale?

  9. user1569600365Chopdoc on 10/2/2019 6:00:07 PM

    Where do I search? Google, Google images, this forum, AZB, and my hard drive.

    Yes I have Hueblers, sorry none for sale. I generally don't sell cues.

    @Chopdoc, would you mind showing off and giving us a gallery of some of your Huebler cue beauties?
