I have been playing with this Palmer I bought last week. It is now my primary playing cue.
My favorite cue ever was also an old Palmer cue, the one I had before the one in the picture. The new one in the picture is also an "old Palmer" and I am also really liking it a lot as well.
Here are some photos of my other pool cues:
My "Car Cue" - Halex 19oz Titanium Cue
This is a Halex 19oz Titanium Cue that I bought at Wal-Mart for 30 bucks. I call it Car Cue cause it lives in the trunk of my car for shooting on my lunch hour or after work. I had a LePro tip put on it, and after 3 years of the Brutal Florida Heat, it is still straight as an arrow. It is a pretty good shooting Cue.
1969 Pamler Model "A", Wayne Gunn Sneaky Pete
This is my Jay Flowers case with my 1969 Pamler Model "A" and my Wayne Gunn Sneaky Pete. The short handle is a sawed off Sneaky that I made my own Jump cue out of back in the early 80's.
Adams Jim Rempe JR-3 Cue
This is my 1978 Adams Jim Rempe JR-3 with a Sterling B/J Cue in a Sterling bag. Funny story about the Rempe cue. I bought it used in 1986 from the owner of a local Pool hall called Crazy Cue. I had taken a job right around the corner and would go shoot on my lunch hour with a House Cue. One day when I came in he was putting a price tag on it and was going to put in up for sale, It caught my eye and he said here go shoot with it. I fell in love with it and he sold it to me for $75 with a case and a locker to keep it in.
Larry Haymes Custom Cue, Cuetec 99296
This Cue was made for me in 1996 by Larry "Larue" Haymes. It is Cocobolo and shoots the Lights out. Also Pictured is my Cuetec 99296 B/J and my Giuseppe 2X4 case.:D

1974 Championship Cue
Dug this one out of the back of the closet. It was my very first pool cue. It is a 1974 Championship Cue with a flip top case and it is still dead straight after all these years. I still remember opening it up on X-mas morning. It was a screw on tip til 1986 when Wayne Gunn converted it. I just took the Championship cue with me yesterday. I had not shot with it since 1992. This cue shoots the lights out, played 8 Ball on my lunch hour. Ran out the first game. Got out with 2 bank shots in the second game. Made a razor cut with inside on the 8 in the third game. I will be taking this one out of the closet more often. It brought back some great memories. I have had it for 33 years
The case held up well over the years also:
