There are "Palmer" cues that are being manufactured in China and other than the name they have no relationship to the real genuine old school Palmer cues.

http://www.palmercollector.com/ and in the Blue Book of Cues, I am sure that it is not a genuine Palmer. The real give away is in the pictures, the inlays are all fairly modern CNC work.
BTW this is a good article about Palmer Cues: http://bluebookofpoolcuevalues.com/P...M_CUES_COMPANY
Some of the most sought after Palmers are the ones which were produced with blanks made by Gus Szamboti, Burton Spain, and George Balabushka.

Thank for all the info. I didnt think it was one because of the logo, but i got it cause it had a steel threads in the shaft. Ive shot with it a couple of times and shots solid.
BTW, if the cue works for you then it's all good.
Some guys place way too much emphasis on having a high end cue. That's not to say that there is anything wrong with having a nice custom cue and or any higher end production cue ( I have ten different cues including two custom cues and eight production cues), but I am firmly in the "it's not the arrow, it's the indian" camp.
I know more than a few guys who can pick a house cue off the rack and run tables like nobody's business. And I have also met a few posers with high dollar cues, that couldn't run three balls.
That is not an old-school Palmer, as sold through sometime in the 1980s.
