Taking underrated to mean best performance for price, of the cuemakers whose cues I have tried:

Jeff Olney
Jack Madden

But it is hard to justify that a waiting list as long as Jeff Olney's represents any form of being underrated.

While the prices are a bit higher, the Jules Patterson's EDC cue I tried was great. Easy to see how it would be someone's Every Day Carry.

I am certainly happy with the 2 Jim Pierce cues that I had custom made a while back.

Under-rated usually means under-publicized. There are a lot of really good cuemakers that fly under most people's radar. The guy i mentioned, Mordt, does incredibly clean work. Super nice guy as well. Doesn't take orders. He makes a batch and puts them on his FB page. They sell immediately.

i feel really good about the maker i now use that i stumbled upon by accident really

my cues directly titliest conversion is machined very well, NO rolls and a hell of a quality for the price compared to others
plays really good imo, so much that its cured my cue addiction and his is all i will use

i cant say enough about davids work as well as what a swell guy he is to know
