Meucci - 05-25-2017, 08:32 PM

To be honest, it's really not possible to do an all inclusive review of the Meucci cue. Just for some edification I'll throw in my experiences though. Back in the 80s Meucci was considered by many to be one of the best clubs going. In the 2000 - 2010 years they had a very bad reputation because of quality control,

I'm not going to debate the issues here .. just going to state a few things:

1. Cue one: A "WTB" cue that Meucci did as a promotional gig ... decent stick, but run of the mill ... didn't have the Meucci "taper". Played decent.

2. A 2017 cue that sells as a "HOF" cue. I guess back in 1992 they (Meucci) decided to resurrect some popular models .. and the cue is actually a 1984 model.

The typical 14-16 Meucci taper provides a very "whippy" feel. Red Dot, Black Dot, No Dot ... doesn't matter. Is it "Low Deflection"? ... yea ... sorta.

In the end .. the quality still isn't at the top. Fun to shoot with and all ... but the inlays, points and such just don't match up with the top cue makers.

Meucci cues are not as bad as many folks say .. but they are not all that great either. Very over-priced (IMO) ... but shoot "OK"


Best always,
Ched

Reviewing Meuccis made after 2000 is easy. Garbage.

As always Ched, we readers appreciate your well written and well thought-out feedback.


Playing cues: McDermott G225 and Lucasi LZL-14.
Pechauer JP02-N retired.
Both are better than I am but I fight the urge to buy more.
