My cue stick was stolen in a Manhattan pool hall some years ago and the owner replaced it with a new one. Can anyone tell me which company has a Griffin for their logo? Thanks.

You are excellent Mike! I looked up Adams on Google and it showed one for sale on Ebay. The logo is the same (except for the name Adams appears on the Ebay version), but the shaft has the exact markings and hardware as mine. Thanks for leading me down the right road.

Sure looks like an Adam to me. Looks just like my 20+ year old cue.

They were manufactured in Japan, and imported by Pete Balner Jr (Palmer Billiards) in the '70s and '80s. Pretty good sticks, I still have a nice "Jim Rempe" birdseye cue by Adam, and one of the old two-color-wrap mahogany cues.
