    Private brand stamp on an inexpensive "Taiwan" import.

    Not much to know unless you are really dead set on finding out who imported and branded these cues for some reason. I have never heard of it.

    The only real mention of Wanston cues came in another forum. Some claimed there is a relation to Palmer cues.

    I heard that the Peter Chaung you speak of actually bought the Palmer name from the Balners. I was told that he was the largest Brunswick dealer in Asia and that he thought having the Palmer name would provide a foothold in America. Before Palmer, the name "Wanston Sports" was used. The first Palmer Asian cues I saw in the States arrived in the mid 1990's. They had a black triangle logo [...].

    Although I believe Palmer still remains active in the import slate business they sold the cue business to Fred, the gentleman you speak of in Vegas. Except he was still in California then. He is in Vegas now But does not actually make any cues.

    There are a few other details but that is the basics as I was told.

    One from eBay about 7 years ago:

    When I saw the logo I actually suspected it might be related to "those" Palmer cues, so I am not terribly surprised. The early ones did use a triangle logo.

    So it sounds reasonable to me.

    Most don't even really consider them Palmer cues, but they are interesting in some way.
