My parents bought this for me in th 90's and from searching I think it's a Schmelke but not sure. Also what's the possible value? Thanks!!

I don't think it is, as it would be identifiable by a "Schmelke" name on the butt cap. I have looked through the Schmelke catalogs from the late 1990s and early 2000s and definitely no matches.
Unfortunately I don't recognize this one at the moment, but if anything comes to mind I will get back to you.

Thank you for your help! I landed on Schmelke because of the quick release design. What other companies use this style of quick connect? I've only seen it on Schmelke cues.

Do you want to sell the cue?
- user1504021087 on 9/1/2017 5:56:01 PM
I've thought about selling it to someone that's going to be more actively using it. I haven't played in years and it sits in my man cave in the case and hasn't been used in a game in sometime. It's still straight as an arrow and zero warp in it. The tip is in excellent condition still as well.

How much do you want for the pool cue? I pay cash or PayPal.
I play pool all the time. I am playing tonight although I am catching a summer cold. My pool team just lost the finals this last session. We had won 3 times in a row previous. It seems I have to provide cue sticks for all members of my team. If they have one they usually leave it at home. (???)

I wouldn't even know where to start on the price, I know it's a beautiful cue with very detailed work and the quick release joint on it. I just don't know the cue maker of it 😁

Can you give me an idea of how much you might want to get for it perhaps?
I don't know what this cue is either, but I am interested. I don't have a fortune though. I'm retired.

Congrats on being retired! I just retired muse on Monday from the military.
Honestly I'm at a loss on a price for the pool cue. I could say $100 and it be way to much and I would have "taken" you, or I could say $100 and it could be worth more I just don't know. I know my dad said he payed $300 for the cue I believe back in the late 1990's.
I'm not well versed on pool cues as my thing is fishing. I'm a Pro Bass Angler and fishing poles range from $200-$900 depending on what you want and I'm OK with those prices because I know it's worth it.
If you or someone else can give me an idea of a fair price for this pool cue or find where someone was selling a cue like this and it has a price, let me know! Or, you can shoot me a price.

I am the amateur fisherman. I caught a smallmouth bass about a week and a half ago though. On a nightcrawler.
I don't know about this cue but I would be willing to pay $100 for it and take my chances.

Hooked into a whopper this past weekend in Fayette County, OH. He bit through the line. Huge. Lady deputy kicked us off the bridge we were fishing on. Next day found out she lives there & owns all the land adjoining the bridge & her people don't want anyone fishing there but them. Ain't that sumpthin"!
Still interested in the cue.
- Mark Bellamy on 9/28/2017 3:18:18 PM
I am still interested in purchasing this cue from you.
