Who builds the best cue for the money? My vote is Bob Runde and close second Bob Frey, yours?
Even after all these years.....Andy Gilbert. I don't know how in the world you can beat one of his jump/breaks for less than $500. Those cues do it all and do it extremely well. :thumbup:
Wayne Holmes in my eyes easily takes the cake. Most of the names mentioned here are at the very least known cue makers who perhaps don't charge enough to bring that elusive upper tier reputation. Wayne was like the Spurs of the cue world. Always under the radar and in some cases an unknown.Wayne Holmes - No longer with us Did a lot to support player too :thumbup:
Pat Diveney, great cues and does a lot to support players. :thumbup:
BHQ's work has progressed steadily the last 5-6 years. His work today is miles ahead of where it was when he started making cues. Not to knock the early stuff either, I owned a good 3-4 of his cues, but you can clearly see the evolution in his work.I agree with Durbin, Blackcreek, and Treadway... but to Sean's point you have to add Gilbert to that list.
I also think BHQ could be added as well.
