Nylon insert equals Huebler.
Nylon ring/collar too?
Jeesh, that'd kill the hit.

Yes, you're right - all that white stuff is Nylon I guess.

The only part that's bugging me is that nobody so far recognizes the cue - you would think this strange point design would at least have been seen before.

This cue came in a package that I bought with an old Meucci Olympian from about 1980. The guy said it was a Huebler so I assume he had been using it before the Meucci.
This has got to be a very early cue. I guess I'll try to track down Paul Huebler and see if he recognizes it.

I got a call from a collector (in Germany no less) and he recognized it as an early Huebler, 1974 or 1975. They used stickers in those days.

I hope it's a retired design!

Looks like a Meucci OLD-1 to me. The one called the Diamond.
