IQCues started by Mr. Dimitrios Kalogeras, he wanted to create a pool cue that had a perfect balance and with the right rigidity, ie something he himself wants to play with but which he had not found in his first 20 years as a pool player.
In 2006, Dimitrios decided to quit his job at the local construction company, with a goal set on being a cue maker, he study the trade at Arnot Q, after a while he also received some good tips from Dennis Searing.
Dimitrios built his first billiard pool cue in 2007, from the first cue until the beginning of 2009 Dimitrios had built a total of 12 cues, and repaired and renovated lots of cues from all makers.
Rumor began to spread from the first 12 cues that IQCue's pool cues were something extra to play with.
In 2010 Andreas Michailidis started at IQCues, his background is as design engineer in the automotive industry, the production developed strongly during their first years together where they got along so well that Andreas became a partner with Dimitrios.
In 2013, the cue they manufactured were very advanced, as were the cue shafts that were named Infinity shafts.
In 2014, Andera's brother Nikos also started working at IQCues, Nikos, like his brother Andreas, has a background in the automotive industry, at the same time as Nikos started to work at IQCues a forth piece to the puzzle came along in Antonis Zoumpoulis, Antoni's background is in the wood industry.
The development of cues, shafts and work shop has gone really fast from the time all 4 guys were assembled until today, where their latest invention is the Stellar shaft in carbon fiber.
In 2011 IQCues gave Alexander Kazakis a cue shaft that Alexander stuck to, in 2014 Alexander got a full set of cues (jumps, break and playing cue) from IQCues, shortly afterwards Alexander started to win competitions, and in 2019 Alexander had come a long way on his pool playing career by winning many international tournaments that he was ranked 1st in the world. As the best ranked in the world, Alexander Kazakis was sponsored by Predator in 2020 and the collaboration with IQCues ended.
When Oliver Szloniki heard that Alexander Kazakis got sponsored by Predator, Oliver directly asked Dimitrios if he could become an IQCues player, IQCues then built a full set of cues for Oliver, and already the following year Oliver placed 3rd in the World Cup in 9-ball, Olivers IQCues journey has just begun, hopefully Oliver will also be ranked number one in the World.
In 2013, Nikos Gerasimopoulos also started playing with IQCue's cues, Nikos is a very technical person who has been involved in the development of IQCue's carom billiard cues.
Nikos is a successful carom billiard player, especially in One Cushion billiards, Nikos has won the French championships twice and come second at the European championships, Nikos has also won several French tournaments in 47/2 and 71/2, he is also a World Record holder.
As a side note, worth mention, Dimotrios himself is a very good player, been in the Greek national team, won many tournaments, played some of the best players including legends like Jim Rempe and Earl the Pearl Strickland to later hotshots like Joshua Filler in tournament's. Dimitrios best racks in a row in a tournament are 8 in 9 ball, so yes, the IQ-man can play.
