  • Original 1980s ash one piece Powerglide Purist cue wanted

    I just wondered if anyone on the forum has an old original one piece ash Powerglide Purist cue for sale? Iíve been looking for one for some time but the only ones that I have seen have been a few centre joined cues. Ideally I would prefer 58in long.

    Thanks

        Hey, Ant and John.......I’ve got feelings!! Lol

        I’ve just about given up on ever playing decent snooker again and after trying out just about every cue in the UK I’ve now decided that for some reason the best feeling cues that I have used over the years are some of the old 1980s cues which seem (to me) to play with a nicer hit than the modern super stiff cues.

        At present and thanks to Old School on this forum I’m using an old original centre joined Powerglide Purist cue which plays nicely and really would probably do me for the rest of my snooker playing days but I just wondered if there were any one piece versions kicking around, would just love to try one out to see if it plays very differently from the centre joined version.

          This makes perfect sense mate, i'm a fan myself as you know of the 80's early 90's stuff as you say something about the hit, I tend to struggle with new modern cues even though they have been perfect in every way build wise etc

          But then its probably all in our head but its great that we can still convince ourselves of anything when it comes to cues and never learn.....lol

            Hi Oldgit,

            Yes, I do have a 1984 ash one piece Power Glide Purist cue, signed by Rex Williams, 17oz and 57.5" inches in length, 9mm tip. The cue is in very good condition i.e.very straight, good tip, but it does have a few dings in the ebony butt and the Purist name plate is showing some signs of ware, also the leather buffer is showing signs of ware, the original varnish on the butt has also darkened over time. But...it is in all original very good condition for it's age! 35 years old and always kept in a hard case, it still plays really well indeed, and when spotted by people it always receives good comments! Unfortunately, they don't make them like this anymore...

                      . Inclined to agree with CueAntW . I am also a very old git who played a little bit of snooker in my youth and am returning to learn properly while I can still see the opposite end of the snooker table. Old cars are remembered with nostalgia as being great but when you revisit one and drive it you see how primitive it is. Same with most old snooker cues
