Hey, I've taken a break from playing pool for a little while and I'm just now starting to get back into it. I used to own a Lucasi LE-12 which I kinda lost by accident. I'm looking to purchase a new cue around the same price I got my old one for which was $200.00. I wanted to know what you guys thought about the Lucasi L-EWR if you have ever played with it.

Also, if you guys could list a couple reliable online billiard retailers I would appreciate it a lot.

Since you're familiar with Lucasi, I suggest considering the following used cue being sold on eBay AFTER you determine this seller's return policy. If it were me, I would "buy it now" instead of bidding against others for it. I would buy this cue myself, but I just bought a cue.

Ozone billiards has a good return policy, just return the cue if you don't like it within a certain period of time, even if you've chalked and used it. I ordered a cheap cue from them recently and had them put a tip on it. The shaft was warped and had 2 dents in it. They sent me another after supposedly checking it first and it too was warped, and it was the wrong weight. They obviously did not check. I sent both cues back for a complete refund including all shipping charges.

There's lots of cues out there. Is there anything else you're specifically wanting in your new cue other than it costing around $200?

Uh... oops. Could not resist, changed my mind, and bought that used Lucasi L-EWR with case and joint protectors for $115 shipped.

I'm really excited about my purchase of this Lucasi. The seller will ship on Monday by Priority Mail so I should have it in a few days. I never shot with a Lucasi before. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif I assume it shoots similar to Players cues, which I like. It weighs 18.8 ounces and has a leather wrap. I never shot a cue with a leather wrap either, so I have to wonder how well that's going to work for me. But if it plays better for me than my current cue and I don't like the leather wrap, I'll probably have it removed. This cue just seemed like too good of a deal to pass up, and the included case and joint protectors made it even better. Of course if I don't like how it shoots, I'll be looking for a buyer.

Um, there's not much more specific but I would like something that's not too fancy lookin and I want to try out a wood joint this time after going with a stainless steal one last time.

I've been doing a lot of online research and shopping for cues the past few weeks and the Elite series by Action Cues really got my attention for a little over $100. The following is the cue I had been considering: http://billiardswarehouse.com/cues/action/elite-ep11.htm. Coincidentally, it looks a lot like the used Lucasi cue I just bought on eBay, which sells new online for around $200 shipped. Both of these cues feature a wood to wood joint (edit) and cocobola wood. The following shows the different Elite cues: http://billiardswarehouse.com/cues/action/action_pool_cues_elite_pg1.htm. I also was considering a Schmelke from billiards warehouse so I could custimize the weight to 18.5 oz and the shaft to 12.75mm for free. Hopefully others here will offer a few more suggestions.
