If you did, I would definitely go there and read what they have to say on the subject. I think they may share some interesting info on this matter.
Thanks to everyone who chimed in here. I appreciate it. I've always played with a 19 or just under that and always heard that the pro players are at 19 or lighter most of the time. Then I heard that wasn't the case. I was just curious to know what some of you guys had to say on the subject. I also heard that the heavier cues were good for beginning players
for control purposes. I wouldn't put myself in that catergory really as I've been playing the game for a long time.
I do agree that there can be a "honeymoon" period where new cues are concerned. I don't know if that's true in my case but I really do like the feel of this predator with the radial pin. I see myself improving with it daily and I think it should stay consistent. I do have the weights to add so I suppose if it becomes an issue I'll do a trial with the weight in.
I'll keep plugging away! Thanks a lot guys!
