If it's best pro of that era vs the next 5 top pros, has to be cuetec, Earl, Allison, and Shane have dominated the last 30+ years.

Earl, Shane, and Allison have won a lot of tournaments....
..but who else has won tournaments with a Cuetec?

Meucci is n the running...he started talking about how a cue spins before most.

Schon has won a lot of tournaments....but a lot have had Predator shafts on them.

,,,so I think Predator has been the greatest influence since the mid 90s....
...thatís including high level and local tournaments

I think in the history of pool, Brunswick or cues with Brunswick parts get the nod.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

Make sure you check your references before you buy on this site. Even a mod here engages in bad business!

The flip side of my argument is most Pro caliber players get their Cue for FREE, or get Endorsement Money to play with a brand. So if some great Pro is playing and winning with say a Predator, ask how much are you getting payed to use that Cue, or was it just a FREEBEE.

One of the best players locally (AZ), who won most of the larger local tourtnments continually played with a McDermott Merry Widow, and LePro Tip for many years.

I would have loved to have his skill, v/s any customer Cue to play with. JMHO

Meucci, Predator, Schon, Brunswick, etc. All had great players using their cues.

I could be wrong, but it seems like some pros switch cues and especially shafts, depending on the sponsors of tournaments they play in.

How many times has a pro made a name for him self with a certain cue, only to switch to a Predator carbon fiber shaft in some Predator sponsored tournaments. Then later on they are back to their old shaft.

I think Bergman was using a Diveney Kiel Wood shaft in the International 9 Ball Open. Prior to that it was a carbon fiber and prior to that a Diveney Kiel Wood shaft again. I am curious to see what shaft he will be using in the Mosconi Cup.

Filler and a couple others have been back and forth with maple and carbon fiber shafts. I doubt any cue makers have the deep pockets Predator does. Maybe some feel pressured to use a certain shaft for certain events? Ya got me.

As we all know, most of them shoot great with about any shaft.

Correct, as far as I know. The last time a Balabushka won a tournament, it would have been Jimmy Moore, 1984, the Senior Champions tournament, that was held at the Catskills in New York. That would be 35 years. For the record, Mosconi won the first of these tournaments in Atlantic City in 1982. I would consider those professional tournaments.

Other than those, I don't recall a professional tournament won with either since. Obviously a lot of tournament wins before though. Maybe a Bushka owner has won something since, but I can't think of it.

Cuetec's number would be awfully high. They've been around awhile. And if a shaft replacement constitutes the cue, then Predator is awfully high. Obviously Brunswick's numbers are high if you go back far enough, but nobody would know the number.

All the best,
WW

Don't be so sure of that. OK.. maybe the Rambow.

Don't think many of the top 5-10 custom guys will be making this claim either...
