What cue gets the most play? Simple question - one cue answer please (description would be great too).

My main player - McDermott M64C Phoenix (Oct. 06 cue of the month) 18.8 oz. a shade under 13mm with a newly installed Sniper ... the rest is all typical stock (3/8-10 etc.). The zebrawood on my cue isn't straight grained on the forearm; more of a spalted look - pretty cool looking IMO, and the cocobolo, paduke, and German brass rings at all points set it off. The leather wrap is just ok (looks wise), but I like it (when playing with it)

what's yours?

Keith Josey Fancy Sneaky Pete.
It is Bocote wood with 3 inlays (top of points, bottom of points and right above butt cap). Two custom fitted 314-2 shafts with matching ring work. One shaft has a Moori H and the other has a Kamui H. I love it. It is the only cue I play with.

I play with the Moori H shaft the most. I just recently had the Kamui H installed and I like it as well. To be honest I really like both of them. I am starting to lean towards the Kamui H though (the more and more I play with it).

Right now I'm playing with a straight black Jacoby with a 314-2 shaft and a Karomi tip.

I just recently went back to my Scruggs.






This is my poolcue. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My poolcue is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My poolcue, without me, is useless. Without my poolcue, I am useless...

I use a few cues on and off...but without a doubt the one I keep coming back to is my BCM John Davis blank. Full spliced ebony with a leather wrap. Currently has a moori tip that I'm pretty sure is a medium...not positive.

I have been playing with a Schon for about 10 years. I just went to an OB1 from a 314 shaft about 2 years ago and love it. The OB1 has a hard moori tip and have had it on there for 2 years and it still plays very good.

I hung up an old Schon that I bought used in '93 about three years ago for a very simple Mystick sneaky pete ($150 retail) with a sniper tip.

I love it because it plays a lot better than I do. LOL
