For 200 bucks look at Joss, McDermott, Viking, Mail, all are good quality American made cues. Try out as many as you can before you decide.

I got a decent Joss on ebay for $200.
Shot with it for a few years now!

viking has a good bang for the buck rep.

I also got my Joss off of eBay. Paid $150 bucks for it and had a local cuemaker make me a shaft to my specifications for $65. Now I have a great playing cue for just over $200.

If you get a joss then try to find one without the steel joint, they hit alot better.

I wouldn't mind trying it out just for that reason, the wood to wood joint.

Cuetec is also a very good stick for the money. You can look at some at www.cuetec.net (http://www.cuetec.net) and they will tell you the dealer nearest you. Also, they are on E-Bay
