Ace in the side.
You have a $1000 to spend on a playing cue, what would you buy? As a side note, how many of your non pool playing friends think you are crazy spending more than $300 on a cue?
Different players like different cues for different reasons. If you want a playing cue you really like and are comfortable playing with my advice is to try and hit with as many different cues as you can (not always easy to do) so you can find out what playing cue you like best.
