...while eagerly wanting for my new Parris to arrive, last night I spoke with my mom who again asked "How many cues do you actually need..?!" So I was wondering the same, how many cues do people here "need"..?

Well, this could be two seperate posts. You asked, "how many cues do you own", and also "how many cues do you actually need". Most AZer's answer for the first question will probablly be much more then the second. As for me, I need 100 and only have about 5. I need to try them all and find one that actually makes me play good! ;)

Let's see, I have a 12x24 case that's full. Two 2x4's that are full, and a 4x8 that's almost full.
The 20x20 case is on it's way to save the day.

viking v2h, varney j/b, varney hustler, hampton beater cue, josey s-01, and in about 3 weeks I'll own an ariel carmeli :)

I'll need to sell the viking and hampton to make room for the carmeli though. I've got two ob-1's coming that will need a comfy home.

I have a few, But I only use one cue to play with, I useualy break with a house cue, if Im on home turf, out and about I always take another cue to break with.

None of my cues are Super High end, the most expense cue I have was given to me, when I ran two racks of one hole on a guy I didnt know, he wanted my name and address, so I though you know he is gong to look me up for another match, but he sent me a nice cue.. I dont use it, but its really nice. I couldnt sell a cue that was given to me, so please dont ask..

Well, the "need question" was more like a rhetorical "question" to paraphrase my disillusioned mom, hence, I put it in quotes -- i.e., "need" meaning the cues you already own ;^)

I didn't expect to see so many AzB'er having 8 or more cues... and it's also funny that almost no one owns 7 cues, or just a single one.

Hey, thinking about it, I'm glad I didn't put in the "small penis complex" for those who have eight or more cues.

glad to see another Audrick owner. bought several when he first started selling on eBay, sold all but one of them. was one of the people who suggested to him to put a name on the cues. he put a cheesy 'Audrick' sticker for a while, then went to the "A" on the cues. mine were all original 'no name' :)

About 10 Customs and a Cuetec Jump/Break ... I sold off the bulk of my collection between 2004 and now ... At one time I had 52 Pristine Rare Palmers and about 225 other Customs, but lost interest in collecting and just concentrate on playing 14.1 and 1-Pocket these days ...

Well, I answered three as it's the correct number. After that, I looked mysophobic up, and I am quite sure that none of my buddies has ever called me mysophobic in my mothertongue or any other language 8-)

Fwiw, six in german is also "sechs", spoken like sex, just a little longer and smoother :D

I guess I am the first to admit that I currently only own one cue, a non-veneered full splice wrapless bocote Tucker...which I adore! :D

However, I am eagerly awaiting completion of my next cue, which is also a non-veneered full splice wrapless, but with a butterfly in the butt, in Bois de Rose (Madagascar rosewood)...another Tucker. :)

Down the road a bit, there will be a Searing...also in Bois de Rose (Madagascar rosewood)...exact details are a secret. :p

After that, I am pretty much done...can't see 'needing' anymore.....now 'wanting' is a different animal altogether! :D
