Vintage Viking Cue ID and Info

Vintage Viking Cue ID and Info

I recently purchased a vintage Viking cue that looks like a Viking W60 cue from the early 1970's. This ID is from browsing archives on the Viking website but I could only pull up a few of their brochures.

I am curious if this early Viking is a full splice cue.

I had read somewhere that some of Gordon Hart's early cues were built with blanks from Burton Spain and Adam Cue (Richard Helmstetter).

Any additional info out there is appreciated.

    I have all of the files downloaded from those Viking archives (from when they used to actually work).

    This cue isn't in any brochure older than the Viking W series (1970), but this same model is carried forward as:

    • Viking X60 (1972)
    • Viking Z65 (1974)
    • Viking R60 (1976)
    • Viking H70 (1978)

    I am not sure on whether or not it's a full-splice.

    Thank You for the info.

    The rings on this cue were sticking out and the finish was bad so I stripped and refinished the cue. I also removed the faux-linen wrap (nylon) and replaced it with a black Spanish Bull leather wrap. Fun little project.

    The cue is not a full splice, it has a maple handle.

    Thanks again,
    Tim Cummings
