Does anyone have any experience with Helmsteter cues ? if so i would like some feedback as i am thinking of getting one and before i throw $300 and change out there i might as well ask the people who know .
Also does anyone have any experience with Schmelke,s sneaky petes and are they any good.
Any observations will be appreciated.

Good cue, like many others. If you like the Helmstetter, you may also want to look at the George Balabushka series. They're from the same company, Adam Cues (Dick Helmstetter).

If you're willing to spend $300 on a production cue (and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that), I would suggest you consider a Joss Ltd. (Dan Janes).

I'd stay away from the superjoint. IMO, it's just too much metal for a joint. I've hit with a couple of Schmelkes, and in a word, they sucked. That's two words. I'm feeling generous today.

The best production sneaky pete that I've had the privilege of shooting with is a Huebler SP. For no particular reason other than it felt good to me. It's all subjective of course.
