    This Meucci cue is stumping me as well. A few questions:

    • Did you buy it new, and if so, when did you buy it and where did you buy it from?
    • Do you know if it has ever been repaired e.g. had the butt cap replaced?
    • Also can you send a photo showing the forearm (e.g. all of the way from the butt to the joint)?

    After some digging in our records, I found these two images, which my notes say are the elusive Meucci Freshman #2 (MEFR-02) cue. The images were named "freshm2".

    The problem is, no catalogs actually list the Meucci Freshman 02, nor do any of the historical Meucci price lists. They just list the FR-1, FR-3, and FR-4.

    It could be that yours is a 1 of 1 prototype of the Meucci Freshman 2 pool cue. Other than the photos from our notes, and your images, I have never seen another photo of this cue, nor have I seen it in person. I am guessing that for whatever reason (quality, shortage of materials, costs, etc) they decided not to produce this cue at large, thus it not being in the catalogs. I have heard numerous stories about prototypes "walking out the back door" of the factory and ending up for sale on eBay. Sometimes Meucci will send prototypes to dealers to sell off as a one-off.

    So how, at this point can we prove it? Well, I can't find the exact spot on the site I got them from anymore to verify it, but the images are very similar to those they had posted for the Meucci Freshman FR-1 e.g. you can tell it's from the same site, etc. So this is all I have so far to support the claim that your cue is a Meucci Freshman ME-FR2 (aka Meucci MEF-2)
