Plain Cue
 
Hey everyone,

New guy here. I've recently started playing more and I think its about time to step up and purchase my own cue as opposed to always using house cues.

I've been looking around a lot and I can't seen to find anything that I like, aesthetically.

It seems like every cue maker is just interested in producing super ornate cues.

The only cues I have found that have the looks that I want are the:

Predator Ikon1

Predator Ikon 2-1
http://www.billiardshowroom.com/pred...r-ikon-201.jpg
Predator 8K1
http://familyrecreationcenter.com/im...detail/8k1.jpg

Do you guys know of any other cue that have similar aesthetics?

I would highly recommend any of the Mezz ec7 line, but this would match your examples: https://www.seyberts.com/mezz-ec7k-cue

Thanks for that suggestion. I think I'm close to making up my mind. I'm highly considering a Mezz at this point. Their AXI-K is almost exactly what I want except for the wrap. Checking if they can do a custom wrap for me.

Thanks again.

The model I linked is linen but they do have a wrapless just like it

I just always have reservations about a painted cue. I mean, if it is good quality wood, which I think is mandatory for proper feel, then why on earth would they cover it up with paint.

Every cue maker I am aware of makes plain cues. Not sure why you are not finding them.

Look up "merry widow cues" you'll find plenty out there

None of the high quality cues listed are painted.
Which cue do you think is painted?

Mezz is my pick since the 1st ones in 1999. UJ-10

What is "Black Maple" and/or "Black Hard Canadian Maple"?

J Pechauer ~ PO3-G ~ About $350 - $400. If that's too much, get a Schmelke full splice sneaky. Either way, get 2 shafts! good luck

Maybe ebonized is a better term?
