If we are talking strictly "playing"...I would put the Becue up against just about any cue.

Everybody has different tastes, as far as "hit and feel", but I have never hit with a cue that hit any "better" than the Becue.

I've read alot about this becue would love 2 try one, I look around Derby City this year and didn't c any.

Also I read all 9 pages and only 4 people said Mike Johnson of Jensen Cues now I have own alot
of great cues from great makers but I know for a fact Mike has and does make some of the best
playing cues in the world.

You can ask countless road players about Mikes cues and I promise they'll say
he makes awesome players cue.

He's been turning shafts since 1969 there's some great shaft wood hanging in his shop.

I like his cues too, unfortunately the work wasn't as tight as I was looking for - shoulda bought one anyway for the price. Mike and his wife are great people, spent a few hrs at his house when I working down there.

Here's my 2 cents:

After some 15 years of play and owning various cues,; the best ones I've tried are:

1. Pechauer (12,75mm normal shaft)
2. Some Cuetec cue at a local bar which looks like a 2-piece. It has some coating that
makes it slide nicely and it hits good with an elk master tip. (price isn't everything).
3. Bear Cue (Bear Cues from Germany) with 13mm shaft.
4. Lucasi LD-2 (13mm tip elk master). Tried various laminates but they were crap.
5. McDermott Star Cue (bought from Thailand), 13mm tip. Plays good but makes a
clicking noise.
