I've been looking around doing research and i've noticed some things.

First, it seems like most production sticks whether it's players/lucasi/predator all are made with similar material.

Most of the shafts are hard rock maple from what i've seen.

The butts are the same thing.

I'm wondering, what really sets a players and a lucasi apart if they are made with similar materials? Is it the way they are put together?

Exactly.

How long the wood is "cured" or "turned", WHERE they get it from, how many knots are in it, etc.

There are a LOT of little differences in the way they are made as well. I think someone posted about this a few weeks (months?) back. I'm not sure when because all my days kind of meld together on this forum. lol

Honestly of the cues you've listed , I'd put them all in just about the same catagory. So no , there's really not much of a difference. Lucasi has models with higher retails due to design and Pred can go a bit above Lucasi for the same. Other than the Pred laminated models and the models Pred commisions out to be biult , they're very similar overall.
