I agree with you. Lucasi may be one of the better value cues for the money, but placing them ahead of Mezz and Pechauer for quality and playability, really?
Teds ranking is based on play ability only,not quality.
I have played with and hit more cues then I can remember the past 60 years all the way from several Szambotis all the way down to my lowly Schmelke.
My Lucasi and the Schmelke are not far off in play ability from the very top cues from a lot of legendary makers.
With out doing a lot of thinking the best hitting cues I have tried were a Josey,Southwest and a Tad.
I always thought Szambotis were a bit too stiff for my liking.
I'm going to give an honorable mention to a cue I recently hit balls with.
It was a 100 year old Brunswick Butterfly conversion done by Doug,Teds room mate.
Not only a nicely done cue but the hit was great.
I told my wife how impressed I was with Doug's cue and she said buy it.
I have 3 cues now,I'm not a collector but a player.
If we get another round of Donald dollars i might do it,if he still has it.
