View Full Version : Palmer cues

05-14-2002, 04:40 AM
I have been looking on ebay to buy an older Palmer cue and am looking for some advice on how they play and if they are worth the money. I am most interested in the models from the 60s and 70s that had the Palmer name under a window. Any comments?

####, I'm not sure, but the link you posted may not be the link you meant to post. If I'm wrong, I'm sorry.
In either case, Anon should try http://www.billiardcue.com/
They have a number of Palmer cues.

Here is a link for a Palmer cue with two shafts. I just saw this on Ebay on the newly listed items. There are no bids yet and the opening bid is $5.

Some Palmers hit pretty solid and some don't. I've owned three 60's models and still have one. The one I own does not have the window and I've never seen another one like it.
It is not as solid as my Schon. The ones with the Szamboti forearm IMO have the best hit. Their fairly expensive and IMO you could order a custom cue to your likes that would be a better playing cue. Your taking a chance that you will like the cue and the play ability.

Rod I never hit a real balabushka that didn't have a clunk on the third hit. Some Collectors said he corrected the problem but I never hit one that was solid.####

Dick, I only hit a few balls with one years ago. I'ts been so long I don't know if the cue had a clunk. Maby I had a clunk. I did notice your Palmer up for sale. A friend of mine has one that looks similar in the forearm.
