What do the Letters Mean on Lucasi Cue Butts?

What do the Letters Mean on Lucasi Cue Butts?

I got this Lucasi cue from a friend. He says it a Lucasi L-2004 cue.

It has a grey wash type stain on it with blue inlays. It has a letter "X" on the butt, opposite to the logo.

My question is: What does the letter mean on Lucasi cues? My friend didn't know.

    You are correct on the model number, it is indeed a Lucasi L-2004 cue.

    By the way, your inlays appear to be the purple ones, not blue as you indicated. The one with the blue inlays is the LZ2004NB model.

    The "X" on your cue is part of a (horrible) roman numeral date code system, indicating the date of the production run that your cue was made in.

    I suspect that there were two more letters which likely have worn off (as is common). The "X" indicates the year - in this case, "10", referring to 2010. There would typically have been one or two more to indicate the month.

    See this post for further explanation:

    No disrespect intended, but I don't think that's accurate.

    I've had my Lucasi LZ2004NB cue for over 18 years and it has the "X" identifier.

    @user1653840736 - If it always had just the numeral X, then I would bet money that it was for the 10th month (X) of year 2000. The roman numeral representing the year matched up with the last two digits of the year (e.g. 00 for the year 2000). Since there is no roman numeral for zero, it was perhaps omitted, hence the lone X.

    That would match the "over 18 years" time frame you mentioned, I believe.

    Yes, I agree 100% that the roman numeral system they used (and even the base-10 numbering system they used in it's place) have drawbacks... namely that it's very confusing and that many combinations of year and month are ambiguous.

    Lucasi is a brand owned by Cue & Case Sales (a distributor). I would tell you to reach out to them for clarity, but unless it's a sales question, you'll likely never get a response (we've tried many times).
