I found one of the Falcon sneakys I've been looking for on Ebay, seller with good ratings and sales, so I got it. here's the deal, and the question: The butt length is 28". I compared it to three others locally, exact same looking cosmetics and Falcon stamp but bought more than 5 years back from a known reputable friend, and theirs all measured 28.75"(at the joint, not the pin.)

Is it concievable that a company like Falcon would have made a shorter butt, hence more shaft, model of the same "looks-like-a-wallstick" cue?

Ebay seller responded with this to me today:

For this FALCON SNEAKY PETE POOL CUE ,
it's 100% an early falcon production, made by Falcon company.

If you don't believe it, you can contact the falcon company to verify this production.


E-MAIL: PETER@FALCONCUES.COM
FAX: 905-564-8088, ATTENTION PETER/ERNIE

How far would you pursue this, if at all. Secondly, does anyone recognize this contact info for Falcon?

Go to the following website and read the pop-up warning.

http://www.falconcues.com/falconhtml.html

Edit:

And click the following link to see their contact email address from their website: http://www.falconcues.com/contacts.html. It appears to be the same you've been given by the eBay seller.

It costs nothing to email falcon.com so I probably would. I doubt they'd be all that helpful since they probably don't have any authorized sellers on eBay. Just check their authorized sellers list on their site to be sure though.

Thanks, I did e-mail Falcon with the generic questions about their manufacture process. With so many cue persons, I thought maybe somebody would have some idea of whether a non-custom cue making place, like Falcon, would vary a simple SP from year to year. Either way it works out, I can live with it...sid
