    Monkey is slang for £500

    Just wondering, what does this statement mean exactly?
    I'm not native English and never heard this saying before.

    Clint Vanjour his name. Also any Parris cues that are going cheap he snaps up and about a week later on Facebook for sale but never prices them up. Majority of cues go to Asia I think going by the names interested and pm’d etc

    Long story..this is short version.. was my second JP but not one that I picked out myself. Stumbled across it at a car boot sale in 2005 and picked it up for 20 quid from a lady that did not know what she had. First JP got nicked in 1999 and never found a cue that I got on with so quit till aforementioned stumbling. Stopped playing again in 2012 (personal stuff..) and only picked the cue up again in march just gone..within 2 weeks got offered near on a monkey for it and decided to sell it because it never felt right..ever - lovely cue but too much whip for me - went and spent it on a new one that I have chosen and is more suited and feels right...

I sometimes see cues for sale on eBay claiming to be ex Stephen Maguire , there is a guy who seems to have a constant supply of Parris cues for sale on ebay , he posts pictures of them on a bluish deep pile shaggy carpet . Seems to have 3 for sale at the moment
