    The chap selling them is a complete card who thinks £30 cues are worth 10 times their value.

      Yes, but the cue market has moved on and JPU prices are pulling the mkt up and making cues generally more collectable and expensive. If he was selling them for £90 buy it now, they'd shift. BIN prices are usually higher than auction, so I'd say £60 on bids would be fair.

          p.s. They're nice cues though often just 16oz in weight. With a little weight added, they are nice playing maple cues with a bit of history and class. It's not a JPU or anything but still nice to play with though the machine splice leads to a loss of feel.

            I now know you're quite clueless on old cues, stick to your JP's son.

                Unlike Leo who has probably never even played with a JD147 maple, I own two and I know their exact weights and dimensions and how they play. Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah! Everything I said above is true of this type of cue. Others who own them can verify this. I've got over 30 cues, some of them quite old and some very valuable.

                    Sounds like a cracking collection, too much for me, not enough room with everything else unfortunately! Yeah, 1930, could well be air dried too. Ash JD cues are the collectable ones. Maples are ten a penny but still nice cues and considering what people will pay for a maple, not an expensive cue to buy and play with. They generally need about an ounce adding, 16- 16.5 oz is too light for me and I don't play with a heavy cue. What could folk really buy for £60 anyway, not much and probably nothing as playable as a JD.

                      i have a few JDs but the 101 is the Daddy as his 101 break only lasted for 4 weeks before he beat it so not many were made in that time scale as apposed to the 100 break cue in 1928 that lasted 2 years before he beat it so plenty were made , a big time cue collector friend of mine has only seen 2 101s in 35 years , any info on how many is out there still would be good to no and it plays the modern game effortlessly i think Mike Fearnley owns one too

                        Wow, you gonna post pics in cue pictures or here? That sounds ultra rare, like proverbial rocking horse poo. Great player? Must be air-dried angel ash.

                          The rarest JD cues are the the 96 break and the 980 break.
