Maker of pool cues from 1979 to 1988 in Norwalk, California, and from 1988 to present at Hard Times Billiards in Bellflower, California.
Al Romero was a pool player for over ten years before he decided to start making cues. He visited his friend Tad Kohara many times and learned a lot from him about making cues. He started making cues in 1979 in Norwalk, California. In 1988 Al had the opportunity to move his shop into an upstairs 15 ft. by 30 ft. room at the famous Hard Times Billiards in Bellflower, California. Today he is making cues by hand in that shop, which has one lathe and a manual pantograph. Al makes everything in his cues except for the tips, bumpers, and screws, with the occasional help of his son.
Playability is most important to Al, and he believes that finding the best materials is the key. He has even driven to Michigan in search of sawmills that have the best shaft wood. Being above the pool room, Al does a lot of repairs, and he also makes a lot of two-piece bar cues. Al´s Sneaky Petes are easily identifiable by the "Al Romero" stamp that is burned into them. He also makes a few custom cues which are not marked.
If you are interested in talking to Al about a new cue or cue that needs to be repaired, you can contact him at Romero Cues, listed in the Trademark Index.
