I want to hear what you think.
You answered your own question.

To have a good player is like having that special bat or bowling ball or golf club. No need to upgrade or experiment. No reason to change what is working. I was playing with a $100 Meucci(1980) and a $150 CueTec I bought in 1998. Both worked well. Had no reason to replace. I went to the first SBE .BIG MISTAKE. Ordered a $1000 dollar custom. I like the thinness of the butt and the beauty of the cue. Eventually nicked it...had it refinished and now it sits. Anyway cues have certain kind of beauty. Buy and use. Buy and display. Or simply buy just to buy. I enjoy playing with a Predator Roadlline and a Schon H4... I shoot just as well with a Schmelke sneaky. There are no rules. Let your pocket be your guide or use your hard earned $$$ for life's priorities. The truth is only one cue is needed....maybe 2( A breaker).

I bought my player because I knew I would never get rid of it. I also know its the only one like it which is nice to think about. Sure I have different shafts now for it and I did buy a spare cue in case I need one but my Pearl is always gonna be main cue.

Thanks everyone for the replies. I guess I will stop overthinking it and just keep doing what I'm doing. No need to sweat it and just let the cues keep coming and going until I know for sure when I'm holding the right cue.


The beatings will continue until volunteering improves

That's the fun of pool. As far as having a few cues.... They become part of your life's collection. They are a part of your lifestyle. There is a great pleasure in owning/buying cues. It's the thrill of the hunt.
