What's a 'light inlay'? Predator 4pt cues are mostly short-splice just like most other 4pt. cues. AFAIK Pred. does not make decal cues unlike Players and other lower-end imports.Most of the Pred butts are decals or light inlays, there's no special construction difference between the LE and other models.
They are not spliced, the points are 1/16" deep in the wood, inlaid by a CNCWhat's a 'light inlay'? Predator 4pt cues are mostly short-splice just like most other 4pt. cues. AFAIK Pred. does not make decal cues unlike Players and other lower-end imports.
You're right. Most 4pt cues these days are made same way. My point was that Preds. cues are as well made, if not better, than a lot of so-called customs.
This is so much nicer than a fat point marker where the letters have to be huge or illegibleAt first I wasn't sure. What is ugly and what is not is always highly subjective. As many have shown already, some cue makers have a pleasing way of signing, while some should rethink there signature or come up with a symbol or logo. CNC is clean and exact which can look nice.
A painter signs their paintings and for many of us we consider cues like a piece of art work. I would concede the fact that a painter does not write their name in the middle of the painting, so maybe signing the butt cap or some other less conspicuous spot might be better. I don't mind my Pechauers being signed since it is rather subtle. I also think it is cool they are actually signed by hand, even though they are not "custom" cues.
