    Segen Cues Contact Help

    Oh man this sucks. The last time that i met Evan was last summer at BCA Nationals. I shot one of his cues. Talked to him about ordering a custom design.

    Need Information about this cue..

    Between the style of inlays and stain color it gives me a feeling of Meucci. But its not any Meucci i have seen before. It may have been an import pretending to look like a Meucci. To me it just kinda has that bit of flavor about it.

    Phillipi cue opinions please.

    I have been playing with a Phillipi cue for over 15 years. Its tge best hittung cue i have and is my main daily player. Have won more with that cue than any other. Great quality, balance and hit. Wish i had more cues by him.

    Another bad experience from Meucci

    For the money and best overall value id look at Pechauer, Jacoby, and Schon among the custom shops. McDermott and Viking for production. They all make a very fine quality cue.

    Schmelke's P090 Complete Brass Joint

    Schmelke's super brass joint i found to kill alot of sense of hit in the butt for a playing cue. However i always found that the joint worked great for a break cue. The joint adds forward balance to the cue and i always got great power for the break with it. In fact i intend to order a basic cue...

    RIP - John Robinson

    That's sad to hear. My condolences go out to his family. I had the opportunity to shoot one of his cues when we had it in stock at the pro shop I worked for. John's cues offered a solid hit with his unique joint design. And he offered unique designs with his cues. With his inlays in...
