Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it's a Meucci.

Bob Meucci, (Robert), started a thread in the "Cue Reviews" section on Oct. 3rd. It's the 1st time I've seen anything from him, I didn't know he was an Az member. I've been following the thread but I haven't seen another comment from him! Hmmm

That is a new Meucci, made by Bob personally to suit Dennis' tastes. Dennis loves this cue and Bob is making him a second one that's a little thicker thru the butt and slightly heavier. Dennis also has a break cue made for him by Bob. Dennis is one of those players who is constantly tweaking his equipment. He is using a Porper cue extension that I loaned to him. Took me years to get him to use a cue extension. He preferred using a bridge and is still adapt with one. His one concession to Tiger is the Sniper tips. He swears by Tiger tips.

P.S. Dennis quit smoking two months ago and gave up gambling in the casinos (his big weakness) and is much happier for it. I harped on him about his smoking habit for years as well and finally he got the message. I knew that he was in a good state of mind heading into this match and I bet accordingly. No funny lines like before, just straight betting on Dennis to win. All my bets were at 3-2 odds with no games on the wire. I did make one bad bet the first day for Tony to reach eight and it cost me dearly. That's gambling! :smilewinkgrin:

Jus sayin, how many people are gonna buy a Meucci just because DO. Plays with ome? Not many imo. Being by far the largest ,consumer for pool goods is leagues and they say less than xxx can name three pros ( and DO Isn't one lol ). That leaves folks like us on here and with some exceptions Meucci does not have the best name and can't see one of us buying one just because DO is playing with one. What do yall think????

Well I don't know if I would go out and buy one just cause DO is slaying players with his but I might get a few of my Moochies out and see if they have any magic;)

I bought a cuetec r360 partly because of Shane. I understand he could probably play great with any cue, but it caught my attention. I also didnít want to spend very much on a cue. Iíve had it for over 2 years and Iíve been happy with it

Boy, the speckled linen wraps really ruins EVERYTHING about these cues :sorry:
And I'm really sorry, but the Meucci one looks like it's been out of a 80s magazine and hand-colored with markers... :eek:

Meucci wanted to be a strong player or at least get their name out there again. Having Dennis , Max and Corey play with their cues is a good idea.

That cue is not a looker though. Thick gawdy block rings with nickel rings just do not flow with the cue at all imo.

I tot Tony was using an ebony on ebony sw, looks like it from the stream.
This one looks more like a cocobolo butt sleeve, coco into ebony forearm.

Nice cue anyway, thanks for sharing !

I almost bought one too and never would have considered it, had svb not started knocking people out with his.

My guess is that it may be a Meucci in name and made by Bob himself
but i really doubt that other Meucci's (made for average players) will have the time and detail that Bob put into DO's cue.

My very first cue was a Meucci i bought used in the 80's. It was like a whip and a lot of fun. But as time went on the quality went south and i lost interest.

The picture of the players cues was a thoughtful and, IMO, a noteworthy thing to to do. Has to be good for promoting pool and prompting purchasing of all items associated with playing pool. More money generated within the industry is a good thing. Anyone knowledgeable person knows one brand of cue will not make one a champion. But we all like to know what they are playing with. Players of their caliber can and will win with whatever cue they play with or else they won't be using it.

But yet none of them will play off the wall in a major event...

Can't blame him for switching to a good sponsor but whatever cue he used in the Frost match was working great.

True, but nothing anywhere is off the wall, so to speak in anything. As an owner of 5 different motorcycle dealerships I actively sponsored many racers over the years. Some wanted Michelin tires, some Dunlops, or different shocks, grips, etc. Mostly they got what suited them best but at the same time it was different depending on the individual for the same bikes in the same race. This is relative to players preference to different shaft tapers, diameters, cue tip selection, etc. Point is each player has their individual preferences and what that choice is isn't going to make or break a champion. But it can be the perfect excuse for being a loser.

The Muecci is on the left, the Southwest is the one on the right. The one that looks the same as every other Southwest ever made.

Lol left and right? There pictured individually on top of each other how can you possibly decipher which is left n right? N idk about the typical southwest but Mike Wong has a southwest that looks more like the top cue then the bottom. It's black with black n red veneers and is one of the sharpest poking cues I've ever seen. Now that I think about it it looks a little like both cues but the color scheme is more similar to the top one.

On my computer they appear left and right beside each other. It all depends on how you software formats it. You can't always assume that your world is the only world :)
