What cue I should buy? I'm not going for aesthetics I'm going for the hit. I need a real player to gamble with every day.

Took me a few minutes to sort out the quoting order, but the point is my advice hasn't changed...lol
I had to refind your post. I think I'm going for a Tim Scruggs sneaky or a Mezz sneaky. Leaning for a TS. Not sure how to evaluate the ones I'm seeing for sale.

I'd give very serious considerations to a Mezz cue. They have many different styles of shaft, but their standard WD/WX 700s tend to be very well liked. You could get them pretty fancy looking for 1500 dollars, but they wouldn't hit any better than a 500 one. If you want a carbon shaft, I think their offering is the best hitting one of all. I don't like carbon, but even I think that shaft is ok.

I like custom Richard Hsu but he's stopped taking orders. I have my original one available along with original maple shaft and a Predator 314-2 shaft. I'd sell it 1000 and advise getting one of his new Hsunami kielwood shafts from Richard. And my friend Cuong swears by JoeyinCali....Joey Bautista for a hit like no other. Picture is my original Hsu and my new one with the Hsunami shaft.

In my opinion, the pre cat and first gen 314 predator shafts have the best feel of any shaft I’ve ever played with. If you’re a “feel” player like myself try to find one of those shafts, which is kind of difficult nowadays, and put it on a decent butt.

If you just need a "tool"...then you can find a good playing cue really cheap. I knew a stone cold champion who plays world class with a sub $200 cue and would laugh at people spending big money on cues. Of course he had no appreciation for cues other than their utility of the sport. Find a good sneaky pete for $200...upgrade the tip for $50...and get the shaft dialed in. I would prefer something with a big pin. Then play, play, play....and you've got yourself a $1250 stake. Enjoy.
