|Mike Lambros is a native of Baltimore, Maryland, and has been a pool, billiards
and snooker enthusiast for over 30 years. As an Electrical Engineer, he worked for many
years at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (or JPL) in Pasadena, California. At JPL, Mike
was cognizant design engineer responsible for the design and installation of many Deep
Space Network sub-systems, which NASA uses for Radio Astronomy and various deep space
|While in California, Mike fine-tuned his pool game under the tutelage of
veteran tournament and road player Buddy "The Baltimore Bullet" Dennis. At his
peak, Mike was playing solid A caliber 9-ball.
|But there was always something missing from Mike's game. He could not seem to
find a pool cue that played the way he liked. So he combined his love for the billiard
games, his engineering skills, and his knowledge of machines and set out to design and
build his own cue.
|Even though it is still a relatively young company, Lambros Cues, Inc., has an
unique and interesting history. After his distinguished career at JPL, Mike Lambros
returned to Baltimore, Maryland, in 1991 to assume a new engineering position. While
playing at a local tournament one night, an experienced local player and BCA Certified
Instructor, noticed Mike's one-of-a-kind cue and asked about it. Impressed with the
quality of the appearance and even more impressed with the play of the cue, he asked Mike
who had made the cue, and was astounded when Mike said that he had made the cue by hand in
his basement. He promptly hired Mike to make a cue for himself. Lambros Cue's was born.
|Mike continued to refine his cuemaking skills and was convinced to make several
more cues for other local Baltimore players. The response to Mike's early cues was so
overwhelming, that Mike was convinced to make cuemaking a full time endeavor and Lambros
Custom Cues was formally created in 1992.
|After much early success, Mike decided to expand his business capacity in 1994.
So he took on a business partner and Lambros Cues, Inc., was incorporated in 1994. Lambros
Cues, Inc. had a most successful year in 1996. We have added several Authorized Sales
Representatives in many new regions of the U. S.. Mike completed the invention of his
revolutionary new "Ultra" joint design and filed for a patent. And a patent is
|In February 1996, Don "The Preacher" Feeney, of Chicago, Illinois,
inked an agreement to play with and endorse the Lambros Pool Cue. In May 1996, the young
3-cushion billiards sensation Deno Andrews, of Chicago, Illinois, was signed as the player
representative for the Lambros Billiard Cue.
