Is this BMC Meucci worth the asking price.... - 10-24-2012, 01:04 AM

Hello everyone. I'm new and just joined today. Been playing pool all my life and finally decided to join a forum lol. Anyhow, I've been looking at this fairly expensive Meucci that I'm thinking about getting. I want to know what are your opinions of it, good or bad. I'm a little bit partial to Meucci as I was shooting with my dads gambler at 12. The memory of that cue stuck with me so now, I'm looking at the Meucci Diamond cue. I can't post links since I need to hit 5 posts first, but it can be seen on Meucci's website under BMC. It's called The Diamond Cue. Thanks and look forward to your posts.

Mike

BMC cue - 10-24-2012, 09:01 AM

Hello and welcome to AZ. Based on the amount of work that went into making this cue, I would say it is worth it. Just my humble opinion. Have you been to the Budet Billiards site? It shows (List Price: $2,499.00 - Our Price: $1,999.20). Good luck, hope this helps you out.

Welcome to AZ

I highly, highly recommend that you do some research before you spend $2000 on any cue. Especially a Meucci. I know you are fond of them and I understand why but you will NEVER get anywhere close to what you paid for the cue if you ever sell it AND there are MANY higher quality cues in that price range.

If you have any questions feel free to PM me

I'm going to be brutally honest with you and it's just my opinion.
Meuccis are not what they used to be. Even the best ones ever made are not that good. For a number of years their quality has been pretty bad.
And to spend $2000 on a Meucci or any other production cue is just silly.
You can get a great new or used custom cue from a great maker for that kind of money. It may not be as fancy as the one you are looking at but it won't fall apart after awhile.
Don't do it !


New cue-Schmelke custom Bocote merry widow
Best of the bunch- The Mighty Lucasi Cocobolo
Back up cue - Troy Downey
I woke up.
Triangles tips and Masters chalk are good enough.

Willie said I will only say this...when I beat Ralph, they would say it was because he was drinking....but every time he beat me, he was drinking too.

The cue consists of highly figured Birdseye Maple, inlaid with 60 diamonds of various high-quality materials beginning with authentic African Ebony on the exterior of all diamonds and cocobolo centers with authentic Abalone shell ovals. In the case of the 6 trim diamonds, the Abalone is "Heart of Abalone" which is very rare.
The new Diamond Cue has 8 sets of black fiber trim rings that are each inlaid with 12 white squares. That is a total of 96 inlaid squares.
This cue comes with two Black Dot Bullseye shafts, engraved numbers, and is signed and dated by Bob Meucci's hand.
There will only be 100 pieces of this cue made!
It takes about 4-6 weeks to have one made.

Let me know when you are ready to get this wonderful cue, I'd love to get one started for you.

I am a Meucci dealer. Im also a dealer of several other factory cues. What I am about to say is against my own best interests. There is not a factory cue in the world, much less a meucci, that is worth $2K. There are tons of great custom cue makers out there that can make you a one of a kind peice of art for that price.

That being said, I can order the diamond cue and sell it to you for way less than the $2K they advertize. If you choose to do that, then decide to sell it a year from now, expect $500.00 to $600.00 on the used market if you are lucky. I bougth a South West in 1989 for $1100.00 and sold it in 2010 after playing with it for 21 years for $2500.00. Frankly, I wish I had it back.

Honesty>profit......

Thanks for listening

I own the 13th Diamond BMC cue that was made with 3 shafts! Bob puts a lot of his own time in these cues and they are top notch!

I do appreciate your honesty as well. I think it would fetch a little more than $600 if a used one were to come up on Ebay, though none have yet.

Do you mind posting pictures? I would love to see it as I have never seen one aside from stock manufacturer photos. I wonder how many have been sold up till now. Also, where did you buy yours from and how much did you pay, if you don't mind? Thanks.
