Anybody know anything about this pool company? Found a stick that I like the look of, but I can't find anything on this company at all. I'm looking at this cue

But if this is crap, I'm going to buy an Action. All help is much appreciated. Thanks.

The cue is most likely to have been made in China, just like many other low end cues including Action. Workmanship has improved a little on many of these cues.

I suggest you look at the Fury cues on Muellers. They have 5 model of transfer cues that are good looking for just $76.00 (Page 56 of the catalog).

Go to www.poolndarts.com (http://www.poolndarts.com) for pictures and descriptions.

The cues are NOT crap. I know the owner of the company quite well. They ARE, however, made in China, and imported to the U.S....just like all the Action cues. Not bad cues, for the cheap prices. But, like all things, you basically get what you pay for. BTW, he has a strong customer service program, much like Cuestix, if something might be wrong with the cue.

Harold...Funny you should mention Fury cues! They are ALSO owned by the same friend of mine who manufactures and imports the Sterling cues. SAME factory in China makes both cue lines for his company.

Hey, were are being deceited by our own billiards industry!....Once again! The ad for Fury goes on to say that "Legendary cuemakers, artists, engineers and players from the United States, Europe and Asia have united in a partnership to bring the world a line of cues like has never been seen before...."......altough nothing is mentioned where the Cues are being made.....

Anyway, if you see the cue our friend wanted to purchase, he wouldn't go wrong purchasing one of these "Fury's".

Sterling cues are made overseas, but are a very high quality cue. Most of the Sterlings are under $100.00 and are some of the best cues I have seen for the price. The Sterling sneaky pete with butterfly splices is a huge seller and is becoming very popular. I played with it at the Cuesight booth at the Mid-Atlantic Championships and it played very well.
