The ONLY reason I won't take one of my custom cues or cases into a smokey poolroom- esp. now that i am here in FL. is that so many of these places allow smoking and I will not allow my custom cues or cases to be exposed to the smoke. I do have a dedicated case and a McDermott Harley Davidson cue reserved for any visits to bars or smoke filled pool rooms. I can do anything on the table with that cue that I can do with a $2,000 custom anyhow.

I like “sleeper” cues. Not because I’m trying to sneak up on anyone though. I just like great playing cues that don’t draw much attention. I have a few that I’ll take into places that I’m not familiar with or don’t trust.

Top: Frey and Josey.
Bottom: Mike Betts jump/break. Probably the best playing cue of the three. And the lower joint is far enough down that the cue is still long enough to be used as a shorty cue in the tight spots you encounter in bars.

I don't have 10 years experience in this area but I do have a note to buy a Brad tool and Scotch Brite now

It's not that simple. There are huge differences between golf and pool but that would be a different thread.

Pool as a popular pastime, predates the cell phone era. It wasn't just cell phones either. Personal Computers, Nintendos and PlayStations turned a person's living room into an arcade. For a few hundred dollars, a gaming system and a good game or two could kill a young person's desire to go to the gameroom and feed quarters all day.

I'd make sure the place had some acceptable house cues.

Many, many years ago, a friend of mine would walk into a bar and check out the house cues. He would find one that was straight and played solid. He would have a few slip on tips in his pocket he made up with his tip of choice. He did well with that combo.

That's pretty spot-on. A little bit sharp, but still looks like a house cue.

"Little Al" Romero sneaky. Very solid hitting cue! It looks so much like a house cue (except for brown joint rings and a small butt cap) I have to keep my eye on it to make sure other players don't pick it up and play with it!!!

I am not much of a gambler and never wander in somewhere hoping to fool anyone about my ability...but I bought this and some other novelty cues just as a home room house cue to fill up my rack and have something to keep visitors from using my players. Turned out it has a great feel, not a ton of deflection and a pretty good tip so I keep it in my vehicle so I never get stuck relying on a bar wall house cue if I go shoot a few casual games away from home. I wouldn't feel handicapped by it at all if a challenge or money came comes up.
