Help Frey or Pierce sneaky - 07-22-2016, 04:22 PM

I can't make my mind up on which cue to get. I had a Scruggs and loved the way it played. I like a little weight in the butt end and I like solid hit.

I have heard that Bob built Tim's SP's when they were building together. SO if you liked your TS snag a Frey, not to knock Jim Pierce, he builds a very nice quality playing cue.

Roll them dice,

I have an Ebony sneaky from Bob Frey!!!

I would "Buy" the one Gkloop has if I was you! He has 3 for sale and they weight 15.5 / 15.9 / 15.7 ounces. I would grab the 15.5 ounce cue and never look back!!!

Happy Shopping!

They Sgruggs had a 5/16-14 pin and I didn't know if a Frey played the same.

I bought a Frey sneaky through Gene and it immediately became my player. Ebony and curly maple. Hits solid, looks great and I have at least 3 standing offers to buy it if I ever decide to sell it.

I grew up in Maryland and hit with a ton of Tim Scruggs sneaky petes. His best hitting cues were the ones with the white phenolic joints! They were better then the "true" sneakies! It made the cues less whippy and stiffer.

Bob has realized he likes the hit of the big pins and the latest batch of cues is all big pin. Based on Gkloops offering of sneakies the Ebony and the bocote with the white phenolic joint are true players.

Again, just my opinion having hit with and grown up around the sneaky kings Bob and Tim.

another vote for Bob. Not only does my sneaky play great, but he is a first class guy to deal with. I had him finish a blank I sent him.

I will also tell you you CAN NOT go wrong buying a FREY!!! As others have mentioned , Bob Frey built all odds Timmy Scruggs Sneaky Petes. That's not gossip, it's the truth. I can not and will not say ANYTHING about Mr Pierces' cues as I have never owned one nor shot with one as far as I know. With this being said I HAVE OWNED, and played with countless Frey's. THEY PLAY AWESOME! THEY ARE AN ABSOLUTE STEAL AS FAR AS PRICE!

Honestly , IMHO, I do not believe you can spend your money any better than buying a BOB FREY. PERIOD. The care he puts into each and every cue is unmatched, HE WILL NOT allow any cue to leave his shop with his name on it if he does not think that cue is perfect!!! We all LOVE Timmy's cues and rightly so. Many do not realize that a huge portion of cues that left Timmy's shop was IN FACT, made by BOB FREY. It's a much as humanly possible to get a TS new cue ( sadly Timmy has left us ) from Bob Frey and odds are at least in regards to a Sneaky that Bob was the man that ad it in he first place. After playing with hundreds of cues from dozens of makers, I will say with a completely clear conscious that Frey's are the BEST playing cues on the PLANET!!!

As to Gene ( gkloop) - Bob's authorized dealer - I can say nothing but good things about the man. The last cue I bought was an Ebony into curly SP bought from gkloop. With all the nonsense we all hear all too often about this or that, Gene was a total professional the WHOLE WAY. One could ask for NOTHING MORE. He went above and beyond throughout the entire process. He actually went out of his way to get me my cue ( which he definitely did not have to do ) AND to make sure I was happy with if ( prior to leaving me with it ). I can't speak highly enough of this guy, but I will say this - there are plenty of things to be worried about buying about when purchasing a cue online no doubt - BUT I CAN ASSURE YOU, you need not worry about ANY OF THEO THINGS when dealing with FREY / GENE!!!!

Once again; no disrespect towards Mr. PIERCE, but if your gonna spend your hard earned money on a new SP you just can not do any better than purchasing a brand new BOB FREY and doing so thru GENE ( gkloop ) and you WILL BE HAPPY from start to finish!!!!!!

KD - and yes, I do love the " Big Pins " and THEY ARE the only way to go!!!! Good call on that one brother!!!!

When you say "best hitting" what does that mean. It would be very helpful to describe your perception of the cue, it's balance and what characteristics the hit has. It is all individual but it would be great to have context.

You like a solid hit?
Keith Josey all the way.
Most solid sneaky I have hit with, which is the reason I ordered two 60 inchers from him.
Do it and do it now.
