Another cue question: Viking or Cuetec?
 
Hello, new to forum but have lurked for quite a while. Have played pool on and off for years. Never been good to speak of, but I absolutely love the game. Iím finally getting a table at home (8í (9í wonít fit)).

Anyway, Iím looking for a decent cue I can call my own for around $300-$350. Am looking at something low deflection with maybe a Ki-Tech tip. This is all from what Iíve been reading. So Iím thinking Viking (ViKore) or Cuetec (R360), or maybe another brand that I donít know about yet thatís got low deflection and is in my price range.

Any help greatly appreciated!

ETA: also looking at a Lucasi Zero Flex cue.

If I were starting out in 2019, I would get one of the SVB carbon fiber cue. If you can buy once and be done, you will have spent a lot less than most AZers.

Thanks for the advice. Iíd love that, but if I spent that much, the Mrs. would be very unhappy. Which of course means Iíd be very unhappy.

Iím not terribly far from Kincaid Billiards in Middle TN, so I suppose Iíll take a day and drive up there and knock some balls around with various cues in my price range. Iím pretty sure they donít let you chalk them though. If I ran a store like that I wouldnít want people coming in and chalking my inventory cues either. Regardless, I suppose I can get a feel for the cues, even though this will be my first personal pool cue and I donít really have something to compare against other than the various and sundry pool hall cues.

Anyway thank you for responding. I suppose folks get annoyed with these newbie questions so I appreciate your throwing me a bone.

At that price range, I would seriously recommend a Pechauer

https://www.seyberts.com/pechauer-jp-series

The most basic JP model with the P+ low deflection shaft upgrade is $378 at Seyberts. $28 over budget but well worth it.

Ahh! Thank you. I can go $28 over for a quality cue w/LD. I went to Seybertís - looks like a great site. I see you can get a name engraved, etc. Very nice. :)

Wound up with a Poison Arsenic 3 1.

The design appeals to my Ďminimalistí nature, plus Iím used to house/bar cues so Iím used to plain wood grip. Iím by no means a pro but so far I love it.

Anyway thanks for responding. I know yíall get tired of threads like this :grin:

Nothing wrong with the Cuetec R360 cue, and a good price.
