best playing cue I've ever owned was a Mason Houghland, cocobolo and maple cue, 57.5 inches, stiff hit.

I miss that cue.

For me the other cuemakers I've owned are Joey Bautista, Eric Crisp, Tim Scruggs.

Cues I've tried and would like to own based on playing a few racks are David Kersenbrock (spelling may be wrong), Murray Tucker III, Mike Cochran, Dennis Searing, and Jeff Onley.

some of those cues I'll own of course, some like DK, MC, and DS I won't ever own unless I win the lottery.

Lambros........ Although many of them ended up overseas, when one pops up for sale used they don't last long. There's a reason for that.

My buddy has a LAMBROS it plays very well. Honestly "BEST" is like asking for a personal "FAVORITE".

Some say TACO BELL is the Best Tacos on earth, I personally like Taco from a small stand in Los Algodones Baja Mexico.

My daily player is a Carter Titlist Conversion. When I am playing great it is me, not the Cue!

Cool The best - 08-23-2011, 12:15 PM

I have owned just about all the top cues thereis and have hit and played with them. There are 3 that I consider the best. I repeat That I consider.They would be Hercek cues a really solid well built cue that is made to play and last a lifetime, very very consistent. Blackboar, the 6 and the 8 points. I loved the hit and feel of the 6 points until i accquired a 8 point ,you would need to play with one as I can not describe in words how well it plays, but I can tell you it makes playing very pleasurable. The 3rd would be lambros with the ultra joint ( today all his cues come with the ultra joint) I was pplaying with one years ago in a Poolroom and a fellow on the next table tells me he never heard a cue with such a great sound when it hit a ball.he asked abt. it I let him hit some with it and he ordered one. Again this is just my opinion on various cues.

My experience:

1. Lambros
2. Murray Tucker
3. TAD

There's a lot of other ones very close to TAD, even equal to it, however
for the money the others are much more expensive.

Bang for buck, I'm staying with Lambros.

Omega/DPK is the best hitting I've ever owned. Had a Tim Scruggs which hit too soft for me but still incredible.

That I haven't owned, Richard Harris and Sugartree hit really well. Hit with a Gina over the weekend and it was really nice as well.

i have a lot of cues and also sold many, my own favorite players are Lambros, DZ, QP, BHQ. THey all play very consistent, straight, nicely balanced etc.
But to name the best I would say Mike Lambros - his cues (tried several and have a several) are fantastic, he is also very knowledgeable and very nice to do business with. Not to mention they are very nicely done also, fit, finish, inlays, points etc etc.
DZ I have 2 and both are great cues, BHQ I have one and it fits my style also, QP I have sold and have several - great playing cues.

Please ask if you want further information.

Take care
