Thank you...thats very kind of you.

Truth is...there are many choices for maximum performance cues. Truth is...I can take an older Moochie sneaky...change the pin, ferrule, and tip...and that cue will play as well if not better than anything you can buy...pure magic. The low deflection and the amount of junk you can put on the cueball would shock you....all with a cheapo raced up Moochie pete.


Play with a VARNEY or get beat by one!
.45acp...when you care enough to send the very best!

I don't think I could give a best hit list without trying to give the who do what they do best. I am partial to one style of hit, but I will give the ones I think do their style hit really well.

South West (solid hit)
Older Meucci (Very High action hit)
Tibbits stainless joint (straight pool players dream cue)
Hightower (Medium stiff higher action hit) I am very biased
Gilbert (Stiff firm hit)
Bludworth (Medium high action with low deflection)
Dieckman (Stiffer hit with wood thread joint)

Did you have to give the Tibbits back to the leprechaun? I thought they were only a myth! I would love to actually see one of Danny's cues.
My top 5(in order)
1 Black Boar(amazing stiffness plus action)
2 Southwest
3 Gina
4 Tim Scruggs
5 My slightly modified Mike Stacey plain jane!

I have never had the pleasure of hitting any Bary's or Gus', or Tasc, Searing, Showman, Mobley, or Manzino. I hope to hit them all some day!

Top five playing cues - 10-19-2011, 04:12 AM

Just in random order here ! My top five/six playing cues. Murray Tucker, Randy Mobley, Searing, Jake Hulsey, Barry Szamboti, Kenny Murrell. That a pretty ridiculous line-up.
