Hey Gang,

I regularly shot with a friend of mine. Currently he has a Cuetec graphite cue. I bought him the damn thing. Now his game has definitely outgrown the cue. I would love to pick him up a new one for his birthday. However, money (and commitment to the game) is a factor. I want to get him something nice but not "TOP OF THE LINE" A lucasi (cause that is what I play with) would be great. but I am open to suggestions. HELP!!!!! and if you happen to have a lucasi laying around that you want to sell please let me know.

Thanks

You could get him a house cue. After all, "... it could be argued that it is difficult for any cue maker to even equal the performance of the common one piece house cue. "

I, however, would recommend a low-end Joss Cue.

How about a "Players Tournament Series" cue. There are some pretty good looking cues in this series and their prices are not "steep."

A Lucasi seems like the best value around. Radial/Uni-Loc pin for a little over 100...I can't see how the other taiwan sticks can compete.

Billiardswarehouse.com have a few for sale. Seyberts.com also has some good prices on them.
