Maker of pool cues from 1986 to present in Warren, Pennsylvania.
Jerry Rauenzahn (pronounced Ronzon) was born and raised in Reading, Pennsylvania. As a teen, he developed a love for the game. He was fortunate to have spent approximately 10 years as a road partner to a professional player, Jimmy Matz, who is now deceased. In 1972, Jerry became frustrated and discouraged with the fact that there was no one around to do general repairs, such as rewraps, tips, etc. So, he bought a lathe. With the knowledge he had gained in high school about the equipment, he made a few "Sneaky Petes" from house cues. In the years to follow, he learned to machine his own shafts and to cut in his own points. Whereas his "prime" business was home improvements, he worked on his cuemaking during the winter months. In 1986, a serious shoulder injury abruptly halted his home improvement business. That is when he became serious about a career in the pool cue business.
Rauenzahn´s point construction is short splice, using a 5/8 tenon at the base of the points, similar to McDermott. His veneer points are V-grooved. Floating points are flat bottomed.
Rauenzahn Cues can be identified by the "R" on the butt plate. This insignia was first used in 1988. Before 1988, all Rauenzahn Cues had a blue 1 in. by 2 in. paper folded under the bumper describing the cue, date of manufacture, and his signature. Since 2000, Jerry has put his signature on all cues. Today, Jerry does extensive pantograph work and can do customized work which is handmade and unique to the owner of the cue.
If you have a Rauenzahn cue that needs further identification or repair, or would like to talk to Jerry about ordering a new Rauenzahn cue, contact Rauenzahn Custom Cues, listed in the Trademark Index.
