condition: new
From 6/69 to 6/78 I was the Research and Development
engineer for the Garcia Conolon Corporation.
At the time of my employment at Garcia Conolon, it
was the largest manufacturer of fishing rods in the
world. They also made a number of other tubular
structures consisting of Glass, Graphite and Boron
materials.

Early in the 1970s we were approached by a pool table
manufacturer and asked to make a customized pool cue for
a promotion of a new anniversary pool table that they
were going to introduce.

Their company sent out a well know international pool
player to help in the design. He inputted the dimensional
sizes, weight and balance that the pool cue had to be.
Even the paint finish on these cues were formulated to
have the optimum coefficient of friction.
A number of samples were made for him to evaluate and chose
a final design.

It is hard to remember 50+ years ago but the quantity of
150 pieces sticks in my mind as to the quantity made.

I have 2 of these that have been stored for about 50+
years and are new in their poly bags.

These are made out of high modulus glass fiber.

They are both 57" long, 1.225" Diameter at the butt end
and .5" at the tip end. One weighs 595 grams and the other
weighs 529 grams

Please go to www.lymans.com to reassure
yourself I am the person I say I am.

I am asking $500 each for these
