Surprised Bill Stroud isn't on the list. His are some of the best hitters I've ever played with. But to date, it's a toss-up between cues by Dave Kikel and Ned Morris for me.


Player: 2015 Ned Morris Custom
Jump/Break: Alex Brick; G10 Assault
Other Cues: 1968-72 Joss (Stroud 'bushka tribute); 2003 Kikel
Cases: JB Custom Hybrid Ult. Rugged 2x3; It's George 1x2; Instroke 2x3 Cowboy

I voted for Southwest.
But the Tad that Cuesblues has or had is equal.
As a side note i have played with several Gus Szamboti cues and found them way too stiff for me.


Playng cue- Troy Downey
Back up cue - The Mighty Lucasi Cocobolo
Still straighter than 90 % of all Meucci cues ever made
"Russian Magic Chalk- good enough to steal".

Russian Magic chalk is the nuts.
Its so good my last and only cube was stolen off the table when I went to the bath room.
They left my $1000 cue but stole my chalk, how strong is that?

Of the 140+ that I have actually hit with
(and I've hit with almost everything other than
those 5K+++ cues - because no cue makes sense
to me for that kind of money)

1. Wes Hunter - and oddly enough one of the least expensive cues I own
2. Joey Bautista - easily 1K++less than the ones below it.
3. SouthWest
4. tie: Tascarella and Mottey
5. tie: TAD and sugartree

on a scale of 1-10 they are all within 1/2 to 1 point of each other,.


I no longer own a Lambros. Had 3 of them
I would consider voting for Murray Tucker or the Ginacue 17-A but
I cannot get my hands on either one of them
.

Bill Dominiak built me several cues that all play amazing and his customer service is top notch.

Richard Black, big pin. The thing is a monster, best hitting I have ever touched. Also have a 1986 piloted that is pretty sporty.
