I'll Try to Describe Two Cues for Identification

I'll Try to Describe Two Cues for Identification

I don't have capability to send photos of my cues, but if this posting doesn't help me I'd appreciate some tips on where to look for others' cue photos.

My first cue is an all-black "GW Collection" pool cue. I see that it was made under Dave Pearson's name, but I have never been able to find ANY photos of any brand of cues which are all-black. I guess GW Collection cues is out of business. This cue's 20 points look to be simple decals of silver swords, 10 shorties on the butt, 5 more on the forearm, and 5 long ones leading to the joint.

My second cue is more mysterious: It seems to be well-made except for no wrap. Both above and below the non-wrap zone it has 8 points each. The 4 forearm points are about 8" long and separated by ones half as long, and the 4 butt points are 4" and separated by ones slightly shorter. The most distinctive attribute of this cue is that each point has a square or arrowhead sparkly (ivory?) inlay added to the tip of each point. I have never been able to find a photograph of any cue with this design. It might be Filipino cue.

UPDATE: I never knew that some manufacturers add decals to wooden cues! I've been fooled as the maker desired. When this was revealed to me last week at least I found out that it wasn't nearly as important to find out who the maker was. Feel free to delete this post. I don't want to add to the Identification swamp.

    GW Cues produce several lines of cues endorsed by Dave Peterson, a professional pool player.

    Their lines range from the low-end decal cues ($50-$100) to the high-end (~$450-$500).


    If you do a google search for "GW Cues" (in quotes) you'll get a bunch of results. I can't help you any further without seeing the cue.

    As for the second wrapless cue, I would have no idea where to begin without seeing the cue.

    Good luck!
