The most I ever spent on a cue...description only... - 08-17-2018, 07:54 AM

I was wondering how people would answer. I was going to make a survey, but I want people to use their own words if they want.

I am not concerned about how much you spent. I am not concerned about who made it. Just descriptive terms. I am really curious how people will answer.

Trades don't count. Just cash purchases. This should be based on what you actually spent, not the value (for example, my most valuable cue is not the one I spent the most on).

You could say:
New
Used
NOS
Beat Up
Custom
Custom Order
Production
Old
Antique
Great Known Maker
Known Maker
Conversion
Full Splice
Short Splice
Merry Widow
Tribute
Carbon Fiber
From a Dealer
From a Friend
From Ebay
From The Maker
Found on AZB

You could use other descriptive terms.

I'll start it off.

The most I ever spent was on a cue that could be described as:

Used
Ebony Titlist Conversion
Old (1969)
Known Maker
From a Dealer

Did you try to convince yourself that you liked it when you received it?
