The little hair thingy is a toupe j/k, really Im not sure what you mean by that LOL. Anyway, Players are made be the same company as Lucasi and are decent cues for the money, esp for being made in China I believe. The model you picked out looks like it has real inlays that is why it is over $100. I have seen a few Lucasi's and Players and they seem to roll true and the quality is not too bad. Im sure you will be happy with it.

IIRC, no Player cues are actual inlays. They are all decals. That's the difference between Player and Lucasi...Lucasi cues ARE inlaid. Players and Action are produced the same way (in the same factory, I think), but have different company owners (Player is Cue&amp;Case, and Action is Cuestix). For my money, Fury is a better cue, in the same price range. jmo

Actually, Scott I must correct you, there are higher level Player cues out there and some are titled the tournament series which are priced around $150 and have real inlays. You have to remember some Lucasi's are around the low $100 mark and have inlays too. The labor and cost to build a real inlayed cue is very cheap overseas. Inlay can be only 4 points that is cut into the wood with CNC machines, but far from just a decal cue.

sneakypapi...I won't argue with you. However, the graphics being produced today are technical wizardry, and it is sometimes VERY difficult to tell the difference between a real inlay and a decal. MOST Player cues (and all Action cues) are decals, regardless of what they cost (I got this info from the owner of a company producing these cues).
