Balabushka Cues by George Balabushka were considered by many to be the best quality cues in the world. George Balabushka was born in Russia on December 9, 1912. He arrived in the United States in 1924 and though his start with wood was in children's toys, he became universally known as the best cue-maker ever. Mr. Balabushka left this earth in 1975, but his cues and the stories of his past live on through the efforts of the Adam Cue Company. In 1987, the Balabushka family agreed to allow The Adam Cue Company to continue to make Balabushka Cues. The Balabushka Cue is by far the best selling cue in the industry. In keeping with the style and dignity of Mr. Balabushka, the Adam Cue Company created cues that reflect his originals that sell upwards in the tens of thousands of dollars.
