ok, everybody post a list of the cuemakers who make the best hitting cues you have ever tried. If this gets a good response i will post a tally of the chart.
To make this simple and useful, i will attempt to set a few groundrules, although clearly i have no power to enforce them.
1) please post only the names of cuemakers, not why you like them or descriptions of how they hit. The point is to make a list that says "cuemaker a --- x votes", so all that other info just makes it more difficult to keep track of the numbers. The exception would be if you want to add a stipulation or qualification such as voting for a subgroup of a cuemaker's total work (i.e. Franklin era southwest or cuemaker a, 1997 or later or cuemaker b's fully spliced sneaky petes).
2) please do freely post suggestions and discussion related to the survey, however, please keep these posts separate from actual votes. When you vote, your post should be a list of cuemakers and nothing more.
3) vote for however many cuemakers that you feel belong in the top tier of cuemakers in terms of playability and feel.
If you want to vote anonymously, feel free to pm your vote to me.
