Ok so I took a risk and ordered a cue I knew nothing about except some small comments that I read on this forum and on az billiards about the cue hitting really hard. Turns out I made a good decision. I ordered a sneaky pete and let me tell you the thing has a hard hit, very solid feel and my hit is alot more accurate now. I would say the cue has a hit similiar to a tim scruggs/bob frey sneaky pete. I"ll post some pics below here is the mans website his name is bob griffin aka madison bob

Go look at the website, he has some prices posted there with the "for sale" cues (which incidentally are all marked "sold").

Great choice, glad you like the cue! I love the hit of his cues (I have two) and he can build a cue to fit most budgets.

I would the hit is hard, but not stiff.

I will post some pics of mine once I replace my camera /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

I got 2 shafts with the cue and it set me back about $400 (after being shipped to hawaii $$$ for shipping). The hit is worth more than that to me so I think i got a great deal and the wait time was really good, it only took about 8 weeks, one week was the shipping... Sometimes it's not that great living in Hawaii

His entry level cues hit just as good as his more expensive models, which is the case with most good cuemakers. I have one of his hustlers and a fancy one and they both hit great.
