I'd be a lousy Schuler fan if I didn't add Ray Schuler to the list.

best playing cue - 01-06-2012, 03:17 PM

For me, I think Mr. Scruggs makes the best stainless steel joint. It has this firm hit, but it doesn't feel dead. Another of my favorite is my Omega DPK. It's the most solid hitting cue I've tried and very consistent.


Cues:

1. Omega/DPK with Amarinth purpleheart forearm and butt sleeve
2. Tim Scruggs sneaky pete


Cases: Instroke 2x4, Mcdermott(Fellini lookalikes).

Okay........Here's My List - 06-06-2013, 11:14 PM

All of these cue-makers are based upon ivory joint cue designs..........I already am blessed to own a couple. The cue-makers are ranked in descending order based upon my actual play and assessment of the cues.

#1. Ed Prewitt - .flat faced ivory joint (cue wt.18.5 ozs.)....... Wow.......the play was orgasmic......amazing cue ball control.
#2. Paul Mottey - piloted ivory joint (cue wt. 18.4 ozs.)......he's the best at piloted ivory cue joints.
#3. Joel Hercek - flat faced ivory joint (cue wt. 18.75 ozs.).......amazing feel & effortless to play with.
#4. Tim Scruggs - flat faced ivory joint (cue wt. 18.2 ozs.).....your stroke feels motionless and incredible balance & smooth pendulum.
#5. Ginacue - flat faced ivory joint (cue wt. 18.8 ozs.).....Wow.....a very sensitive cue and you feel every cue ball stroke in your fingers.

Anyway, that's my take on what I've been able to test and play with over the years. I wasn't able to include Richard Black in the top five but he's definitely a cue-maker candidate I'd have to consider more closely, as well as Tad Kohara. I haven't played with a Tad in 6-7 years but the last time I was really impressed. Perhaps after I swap the bolt on my Richard Black cue to lighten the cue weight, it may improve my ranking of his cues since he's already borderline on making my top best feeling/playing cues.


"My Pool Cues"

*Bob Owen Custom- Level 8 (s/d 4-24-16) - Flat Ivory Joint
*J. Rauenzahn Custom - Level 6 (s/d 5-4-16) - Flat Ivory Joint

*J. Rauenzahn Custom - Level 8 (s/d 2-23-15) - Flat Ivory Joint
*Ed Prewitt Custom '05 - Level 8 - Flat Ivory Joint
*Bob Owen Custom - Level 8 (s/d 5-4-14) - Flat Ivory Joint
*Tim Scruggs Custom (9-6-95) Level 7 - Flat Ivory Joint
*Runde Schon '85 Custom "R" Series (1 of 1)
*Palmer (Original) - '72 (All Cocobolo Wood)

Let's not get the best looking mixed up with the best playing. First off, it's relative to the person. That said, when you have a combo of the best looking and the best playing together you know it's something special. Personally had both and only one that had both together. It will have to be inherited because i'm not giving it up!

Zen custom cue. Brand new master level entrant to the SBE this year. Great playing cue, even greater personality behind it.
