Unknown Mali Pool Cue, Please Help

Unknown Mali Pool Cue, Please Help

I've been looking for what model this is for a while now, inherited it from my dad. He got it back in around 1994 I think after his leather wrapped Mali was stolen out of his truck.

And and up-close shot of the Mali cue butt:

    Wow, lots of reads. Must be running into same boat as me I take it. I emailed Mali (sales@malicloth.com). Maybe they'll point me to someone who can identify it. I hope it's not a fake or something. I am sure it can't be but that would e devastating.

    I have the exact same Mali pool cue. I bought it sometime between 1989-1992 (can't quite remember) in Los Angeles and played daily with it for years. It is a limited edition Mail, and yours is the only other one I have ever seen!

    I sent it back to Mali about 6 years ago to have it refinished/ re-wrapped and they hosed it. This is what I got back :( The original stain was amazing, and I always got compliments.

    I have had no luck identifying it, except that Mali said it was one of theirs. If anyone else can figure it out?

    Its a Mali Series 386-94 #12 pool cue. I believe the series was in 1994, and they were the highest end cues Mali produced.

    It is REALLY hard to find information on these specific cues, but here's a picture I found on a post on AZB.

    I also have one of these Mali Series 386-94 #12 cues.

    Does anyone know they are worth now?

    Mali cues were decent, well made "budget" cues. The Mali Series 386-94 series (that the thread is talking about) were some of the better USA made cues that Mali made.

    I've had several VERY well versed players say this cue hit extremely well. The problem is that cues from Mali before and after we're made in China. So if you have one of this series, and it's straight, you have a GREAT cue.

    As far as worth goes, well...that's subjective...the people who have hit with mine universally respond with "wow...that's a nice cue" but things are worth what people are willing to pay at any given time.

    What would you take for this Mali 386-94 #12 pool cue?

    I pay cash or PayPal.

    I bought this cue in 1992 for $210.00. I still have it and use it.

    Mali did not make higher dollar cues like Joss and McDermott but it's a great cue. Maybe in another 10 years they are worth more.

    Feel free to email me at matt@americaspartypros.com

    I worked at Mali up until I joined the USMC in 1995. This cues series was the current production run while I worked there. This series and couple of other series like the Spectrum and Spectrum Classic if I remember correctly. These cues as well as the cues prior to these were built in a small factory in Massachusetts. They didn't move production overseas until the late 90's early 2000's. Not exactly sure when but the newer series were made overseas. There's a good chance I had a hand in building this cue. The work force was small, maybe 10-15 people.

    Thanks for the info! I still use the cue at the local billiards place down the way from the store I now manage. She's still in great condition. I'll probably never sell it as its one of the few connections I still have with my pops. It still gets compliments. Work well done. Thanks for your service and have a Happy 4th.
