I see. Have you ever hit with a Predator LE Willie? I haven't been able to find any reviews.
Most of the Pred butts are decals or light inlays, there's no special construction difference between the LE and other models.

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.

They are not spliced, the points are 1/16" deep in the wood, inlaid by a CNC

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.

I don't disagree with that, they typically have a great fit and finish

I really like some logos but really hate signatures. I play darts too. A lot of the pro player model darts have their signatures. I don't want another person's signature on my stuff.

Here's a cue that's currently for sale:

I can't believe anyone would do something like that to a cue. On the other hand, it's only $225.

I understand the need to authenticate a cue, but we are in modern times now, so why not use a microchip imbedded in the forearm or butt? Does anyone do this?

What’s the fun in that? Artists sign their work.

At 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.

This is so much nicer than a fat point marker where the letters have to be huge or illegible
