It took me a long time to come around to the colored laminates on points, but the history of the titlist has me liking understated versions.

Non-natural materials for the grip (although my first cue had that).

I agree with the rounded points.

I dont like CNC points.
And I really dont like dots or spears at the end of sharp points.

"Russian Magic Chalk- good enough to steal".

Russian Magic chalk is the nuts.
Its so good my last and only cube was stolen off the table when I went to the bath room.
They left my $1000 cue but stole my chalk, how strong is that?

Me? OH YEAH! I sure do!
No dice, no playing card motifs no scrimshaw-like stuff, no animal pictures and on and on.
I ONLY like more traditional styled cues that are not too heavy with inlays or overly ornate "stuff".
I have an Rich Chudy Traditional that was love at first sight.
I like most Hoppe styled cues and absolutely love Hoppe Titlist conversions and prefer they retain the original signature and weight marking even if it is no longer correct.
I also really like well made Sneaky Pete cues as long as they are still very sneaky looking!
If there is a wrap, it must be Irish linen.

I could go on but...I won't.

Lettering on a cue, unless a famous player, or celebrity.

All the best,

Hurricane reminded me of my biggest peeve. I do like dice on cues but any real dice player hates sevens. Why are they always showing 7?

If I were to have a cue made with dice, they would either be the hardways (3-3, 4-4, 2-2 and 5-5) or they would all equal 8s (5-3, 6-2).

I donít like floating points or spearheads on the end of the point, or router points, or big oval inlays, and wooden joint collars. And yet my main shooting cue for years is the Schuler SC 250 with all of those things, and it is my go to cue when Iím not using my Tascarella.
