  • Anthony Hamilton's cue is broken

    Just read that Anthony Hamilton's cue broke due to poor handling of his baggage at the airport (whether in London or Gibraltar).
    He used this cue for 34 years as a pro.

    Very bad news for him.

    What the hell's the matter with these people, it really should be classed as hand luggage and a rack provided somewhere, sue them for everything you can get Tony.

      being discussed on twitter since yesterday, it appears Anthony did have it in a "Ski-tube" which appears to not have been greatly damaged but the case cue and extension - well, as you can see.

      34 years (supposedly) Anthony has had this cue.
      I wonder if he has been trying out any others and may have another at home?

                look how that extension has even bent, wow, didn't even know that was possible.
                If that would happen to my JPU...man i'd be heart broken.

                I have travelled with it, on eurostar, luckily they always let me carry it as hand luggage, even though by strict rules it is too large.

                  Ali Carter has mentioned to Anthony to take it to John Parris to see if it can be fixed. His own cue was fixed some years ago and still going strong.

                    Be amazing if it could be fixed given where the break is. If it’s a case of putting a new shaft on then I doubt if the cue would play the same but maybe Anthony would be happy with that. Did Hendry’s cue not have a break in the same position? I think he attempted to get it repaired but it was never the same.
                    Fingers crossed for Anthony. He doesn’t deserve this bit of bad luck.

                      Hendry's break was much nearer the butt. The shaft was salvaged and a new butt at 14 inches made, but it threw the balance off too much for him. Hamiltons cue is a lost cause I think, although I think I read somewhere that he got a new Tyrone cue a couple of years ago? So maybe he still has his long term cue? I could be wrong about that though, can't find any info online

                        That's no accident.
