I think there probably a little more but i,m not sure...mine is in 95% condition,really great shape,and thats about what they go for on secondary market,give or take .i said 650 because thats what i would take for mine. They REALLY play good. I know you,re a cue guy and just reading your posts,i think you are a lot like me and judge a cue by how they PLAY first and aesthetics second...with joey cues you get it all because he really pairs good hitting woods together and premium shafts. For the money,he just builds top notch players.I have never read a bad review of his cues,only how much people regret getting rid of them lol...

ive heard good things about rick howard , but i dont think he is in that price range .
"Best" is mostly a matter of opinion based on individual preferences. If you can provide what you like in a cue we can give you much better direction. Such as

1. Do you like a softer hit or harder hit?

2. What level of stiffness do you like in a cue ? ( some zip. medium, stiff, very stiff)

3. What type of balance?

4. What sound do you prefer?

5. Does it require and extension?

6. Is LD really important in the cue?

7. Is production OK or does it need to be a true custom form a cue maker?

8. How fancy does it need to be for $1000

9. Type of joint

Answer those questions and I think I and several others could recommend a cue that you would be happy with.

Its always been hard for me to find a custom for under $1k new. Also hard to find a used one too from a well known maker. I would recommend a plain jane Capone if he still offers it. Years ago he was selling plain jane's at a pick your wood w/ wrap for $700. Should of bought that a long time ago.

Play it like you mean it.

I would suggest Jeff Olney or Troy Downey for a big pin, flat faced style cue. Best bang for your buck IMO.
You can get a good Olney on the secondary market but, a long wait for a new one.
You can get a New Downey with two shafts through Mueller Recreational Products in about 4 to 6 months. He builds several models under $1k and they are excellent cues. Troy flies way under the radar in the cue maker world.

If you want “Old School” steel jointed, piloted joint type of cue, the best ones I’ve ever laid my hands on are from Garten Bierbower. I believe you can get a player from him for about $1k. Less if you can find a gently used one.

Jeff makes awesome cues. I sold mine in a moment of weakness when I needed money for a medical bill and it is the one cue I truly regret selling. I would buy it back in a flash.

Plus his cues have the added benefit of providing a solid triceps workout every time you screw it together.

Are top name cue makers now charging more than $1000 for a plain jane Sneaky or Merry Widow?
I would even think I could get either with 2 shafts for a G.
There are some Barnharts on J&J website now for $850 with 2 shafts. And this is only 1 example.
$1000 will go a long way IMO.

I will agree with olney cues...for 6-700$ secondary market...they play real good. My list for under 1k
1)JOEY cue...joey bautista (joeyincali on azb)
2) keith josey...augusta ga. ...superb cues and he and his wife are really kind, considerate, christian couple who build PLAYERS! Keiths designs aren,t for everybody,but he builds classic designs for peole who want that.
3) Rick Howard or Jeff Olney
4) cory barnhardt
