    Reviews for Martz cues?

    Does anyone have a review on Martz cues? Tony Martzakis based in Florida. I did a search and he posts from time to time but I haven't seen any feedback from players. Thanks.

    XLR8 CF shafts. Anybody play one yet?

    I did a search and didn't see a thread on this topic yet. There's a guy at "DFE Billiards" selling his XLR8 CF shaft for $275. He makes them himself from blanks he buys. Has anybody tried one yet? That price is almost too good to be true, so I'm a little skeptical. Thanks for anyone who can help.

    Would like some feedback on Josey cues, please

    Greetings all. For those who have experience with Josey cues, I'd like some feedback before I order one. He seems to have a great reputation and lead time and prices seem very reasonable. Would you say his cue butt diameter is on the thick, medium or slender side? His standard tip is the...

    Avid shafts/cues from Cuetec?

    I've never played Cuetec, heard negative things about their lower end products and wonder about the whole glass covered maple thing, but with the popularity of their Cynergy CF shafts, I'm wondering if their new Avid products are something I should try? I know it's still quite new, but anybody...

    CF shaft manufacturers?

    Forgive me if this has already been covered. I did a search and couldn't find anything. My question is...we all know most major cue companies, and some smaller ones, now offer carbon fiber shafts, but who actually makes them? Predator, Meucci, Cuetec, Pechauer etc. aren't chemical companies and...

    Another great Schmelke

    Another great Schmelke cue I just received a Schmelke NC-03, Cocobolo with a 12.75 shaft and a 3/8x10 joint. It's beautiful, has a flawless finish, and plays great. For $240 it's also a crazy bargain. I had one of their sneaky pete's a while back and gave it to a girlfriend, then decided I...

    Pechauer with a 314-3?

    Greetings all. I did a search before asking this and couldn't find anything recent. Anyone out there using a Pechauer Pro butt with a Predator 314-3 shaft? How do you like it? How does it compare with a Pechauer P+Pro LD shaft? Worth the extra $100? Thanks for any helpful responses.

    How long to pick a favorite cue?

    Greetings all. I've only been playing a couple years but I've tried a number of cues and recently I've gone back and forth between 2 different cue manufacturers. They are both great cues and they feel different but I'm realizing I'm having a hard time making up my mind as to which I prefer. I...

    OB and McDermott 3/8x10 joints not interchangeable?

    Greetings all. I just bought OB and McDermott cues, both with 3/8x10 joints. In the past I was able to put a G-Core shaft on an OB butt and vice versa, but these new shafts are definitely not interchangeable. Putting the Mac shaft on the OB butt was not even close to going on; I was afraid to...

    Pechauer P+Pro LD shaft

    I've played Pechauer for awhile now and after playing with McDermott, Lucasi, OB, Joss, Meucci and others Pechauer is my cue of choice. I prefer the JP to the Pro series, as they have a slightly softer hit. I just bought myself another, custom stained version (and Pechauer did a great job...

    Kudos to Pechauer and Seybert's

    I own a Pechauer JP-09N (now the JP-07Q). It's a great stick and my favorite over McDermott, Lucasi, or OB's I've owned and several others I've tried. I originally bought it because it was Pechauer's least expensive no-wrap cue but never particularly liked the gray pearl color scheme. However I...

    Linen, Leather, or no-wrap?

    Greetings all. This is clearly not a big deal, but I was wondering how many of you out there prefer leather or no-wrap cues to the standard linen. Most cues of course come with linen, but when I tried leather I much preferred the feel of that, and have now come to realize both leather and plain...

    Another 2 thumbs up for Schmelke

    I'd like to add my review to all the other positive things people on this site have said about Schmelke cues. I just received my R065 Cocobola Sneaky Pete customized with a 3/8x10 joint and like others who've received their cues from this company I'm soooooo impressed. The wood grain is...

    Lucasi Hybrid shaft...really like it

    I bought a Lucasi Custom LZL-14 a couple weeks ago. It's a limited edition cue and is beautiful. I was able to pay an extra $60 to upgrade to the Hybrid shaft, which is a radial 8 pc laminated shaft. The cue has an implex collar, 3/8x10 joint, and a leather wrap. I have a Pechauer and a...

    Charleston, SC Pool Rooms

    There are 2 locations in the Charleston area of Players Place Billiards. I go to the one in North Charleston and really enjoy it. Probably about 30 tables, no smoking, and a friendly staff. New ownership has put some new felt on some of the tables. The food isn't necessarily something I'd...
