John Spencer – Adam cues



, , ,

In this video, David Smith shares his passion for collecting Adam cues, particularly those featuring the name John Spencer. At this time he has a collection of thirteen Adam cues, each with its unique history and characteristics. The cues showcase the evolution of cue design and personalisation, with one cue customised to match a players preferences.

In this video today, I’m excited to give you a quick tour of my collection of Adam cues, specifically those featuring the name, John Spencer. These cues are a sample of the craftsmanship and artistry of the finest cues of their time.

A Glimpse Into the Collection

In the video, I show a total of seven Adam cues, each with its unique charm and history. Let’s take a closer look at a few of them:

1. The Classic JS11

These cues are known for their exceptional playability, and some even feature Spencer’s signature facsimile. It’s incredible to feel the history in my hands when I pick up one of these cues.

2. The Butterfly Splice

One of my favorites in the collection is the butterfly splice cue. This one features a stamped badge rather than a wooden insert. It’s a beautiful cue.

3. The Personalised Touch

It’s fascinating to note that some of these cues have been customized over time to suit the preferences of the players who used them. For example, one of the cues was turned to be thinner, both in the shaft and the butt, to match the player’s liking. It’s a reminder of how personal cues can become for their owners.

4. A Unique BCE Creation

One cue in my collection stands out as a BCE creation, but it’s made to the exacting standards of the Adam cues. The joints and design are so similar that I wouldn’t be surprised if it was an Adam cue.

Final Thoughts

These cues represent my passion for collecting and preserving the rich history of snooker. They’re not just objects; they’re pieces of history, crafted with care and precision. Each cue tells a story of the players who wielded them and the skill of the cue makers who crafted them.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this quick tour of my Adam cues collection. For me, it’s a reminder of the artistry and craftsmanship that make snooker more than just a game — it’s an art form. And who knows, with thirteen cues in my collection, maybe I’ll add a fourteenth one someday, just to defy superstition!

Thanks for joining me on this journey through the world of cue collecting. If you share my passion, feel free to share your own cue stories.
