Identify a "Viking" Pool Cue Stick


Identify a "Viking" Pool Cue Stick

My grandfather passed away recently and I have recently taken possession of all of his billiards items. This includes his pool cues, a Brunswick pool table, and some hippopotamus billiards chairs. I played on his pool table 30 years ago when I was a little boy.

I was wondering if someone could help me identify this Viking pool cue. It’s the one he played with. His cue looks pretty modern but I am hoping that someone can help identify what model it is.

I’d like to tell his story better when I’m at the table with friends. Thanks for any help in advance!

    Hi Justin, sorry for your loss.

    Are there any markings on the pool cue at all? If so, can you share them with us?

    Also, what is making you believe it is a Viking brand pool cue? They almost always have the "Viking" name/logo somewhere on the cue.

    IM sorry about the photo. I should have rolled it over some for the photo. It says Viking near the butt and USA underneath it. He always played with viking. He gave me a similar one in 2004 and Im fairly positive he had this one at that time. I'm at work now but I can always take better photos later. Thank you very much for the reply.

    Great, I'll wait for the photos! Do one of the joint as well.

    Here are a few images. 1 of the joint, the other of the butt end with the Viking logo. Thanks again!

    Okay, you have a Viking P-9 pool cue from their Platinum series.

    They were made, and available from June 1998 to July 2002. Photos below are from the 2002 Viking P-Series brochure.

    Retail was $300 (MSRP) but online you could get them for $235.

    Pretty amazing you are able to find that out so quickly. I can't thank you enough. I'll be sure to pass along the name of this forum to all my billiards friends.
