Jackpot Cue - 06-27-2020, 01:28 AM

Keith McCready received a Jackpot Cue yesterday, and what a surprise! I did not tell him it was coming, so he was really happy to receive this cue.

He couldn't wait to open the Postal Priority package to see what was inside, and as soon as he did, he screwed the shaft with the butt and started stroking it. ["Screw," "shaft," "butt," and "stroking." I'm glad y'all know what I'm talking about because these words are unusual for mainstream America.]

Keith said the cue feels great in his hands, and he really likes the smooth shafts. When he said this about the smooth shafts, I said, "Keith, come on, man. All shafts are smooth." And he said, "No, they're not. Absolutely, not all shafts are smooth." I didn't know that.

He also mentioned he liked the shape of the shaft, the width, but best of all for him, he said the forward balance is perfect. He can't wait to get out there and hit some balls.

I can tell you this about a pool player, a pool player who's really a full-time pool player, and what he knows and does best is play pool their entire life. It really doesn't matter where the pool cue came from or who made it or what kind of maple is being used. It's all about the hit, the infamous hit, and how the cue plays.

I'll be reporting back in this thread after Keith goes out and hits some balls with the Jackpot Cue along with photos. He needs to get a haircut first. He's sporting the COVID-19 hairdo right now.

Just thought I'd share the news.

I've never heard of these Jackpot cues, what is the story behind them. Are there other reports of people being excited about them that I could read?

"Excited about them" <<----------AHAHAHHAHAHAHHA.....I see what you are doing here and I am in support!


The story is more like a SAGA!! That $600 Schmelke better be nice! The guy gets caught in LIE after LIE and still is trying to sell stuff on here. Call it "knocking" or what ever you want Deanoc, I call it reality!

This is what we've all come here to see and we're not getting disappointed, it's a real barn burner folks, rounding the last turn it's Gratuitous battling it out with In Your Face, but wait, Laughable is making a move on the outside, now Lettuce is sprinting and has him by a head and Tomato is trying to ketch-up but looks to be getting all bottled up...!!!

And down the stretch they come and it now appears to be a two horse race, it's Gratuitous, it's Laughable, Gratuitous, now Laughable it's a photo finish, we have a photo finish folks, Laughable and Gratuitous just unbelievable.

best,

The way I saw it was they are cues made by Schmelke and passed off as being custom made by Jack Potter for $600.00.
Same cue directly from Schmelke would be about $200
I have a real Schmelke cue that cost $232 and its fancier then the Jackpot cues.
With that being said I think Schmelke makes a fine cue for a very reasonable price.

If I got anything wrong here people feel free to correct it.

I must have missed something on the forum, have no idea what is going on.

Edit: Never mind, just read measureman’s post.

I was going to compliment the gift and leave it at that, but then this read like another ad.

Going on about the shaft smoothness? I had one in my hands, and I can tell you they need some sanding and a beeswax treatment.

The shape of the shaft? Reads like Dean handed you a script to talk up the ultra-stubby taper.

Knocking people who were offended by saying "a real pool player doesn't care who made it" is disgraceful. Go to NPR with that mindset, thanks.

Are you so out of touch with the world today that you would shame others instead of just saying "Dean sent Keith a cue to try, it's pretty nice"?? That would have been nice of you, not the shameless pandering that it comes off as.

Dean thinks we're all idiots and that if a cue screws together it is worth $500. Thanks for confirming that, JAM

If we see a photo of Keith holding the Jackpot cue and he is smiling or maybe giving thumbs up,
perhaps that will keep this thread from turning into a Deja Vu series of posts criticizing Deanoc.
If Keith seems truly pleased with the cue, that’s a strong endorsement as far as I’m concerned.
