View Full Version : Scorpion Break Cue
02-03-2004, 08:12 PM
A friend wants to sell me his 3 month old Scorpion BReak cue for 50$ It's in good shape, but I dont know if it's a 'quality' product. Other people have told me to just buy a decent cue, equip it with a hard tip, and then I will have a good break cue and would have saved money in the process.
What do you all think? HELP
Thanks for any advice you can give me.

I personally don't like Scorpion cues but for $50 you can unload it later if you don't like it.

It is undoubtedly going to cost your more than $50 if you take this route. Lets say you can get a hard tip installed for $10, you will now have to find a "good" cue for $39. That will only save a buck, and just how good of a cue do you think you will be able to find for $39?
The $50 Scorpion is probably not a bad deal. If you are worried about the money (I am going to bet that it does not do anything better for you than a house cue) then forget about it and use a house cue.
I would probably suggest you play with the break cue for a night and see if you like it. If it works for you, then it is $50 well spent. If you don't like it, then use a house cue until something else comes along.
