Maker of pool cues since 1975 in Edgewater, Maryland.
Gothern "Gene" Newport has played pool for most of his life. He started a fishing lure business part time in the 1950s. In 1965 he retired from 22 years as a government electrical engineer, also having worked in metalurgy and chemistry. In 1975 he sold his fishing lure business, which had 40 employees. That same year he decided to start making pool cues.
At one time he was making over 500 cues a year, but he has since slowed down to a fraction of that number. Gene has been married for over 65 years and is ready to enjoy more free time. He has a large one-man shop with a large supply of wood that is aged and waiting. All materials are natural as he won´t use any dies or painted colors. Gene makes everything in his cues except for the tips, bumpers, and screws. He can make a cue with whatever wrap, joint, or tip the customer desires.
All of Gene´s cues are one-of-a-kind and custom made. At nearly 90 years of age, he is still making cues, but would like to sell his business. Gene will take orders by email and will quote prices once he knows what his customer would like in a cue. Newport Custom Cues are guaranteed against construction defects that are not the result of warpage or abuse. If you are interested in talking to Gene about a new cue or cue that needs to be repaired, you can contact him at Gene Newport Cues, listed in the Trademark Index.
