Quick release or radial?
If it's quick release, it might be the new Falcon or the old EuroWest.

Thanks Joey. I believe it is a quick release since he only has to turn it about 1/4 to 1/2 turn to release.....mike

it sounds like the new falcon to me as well. they use the quick release. Im not a big fan of the quick release joints...especially in the lucassi. But, thats just my opinion...to each his own.

I recently had a Quest cue in my shop for some repairs and the joint pin matched your description.

Here is a Ebay link to a similar cue.

Orchid cues use the pin you describe. It's called the Quick Loc. Problem is that it eventually becomes loose, like some of the problems mentioned with the Uni-loc.
