Most Under Valued Cue Builder

Durbin, Blackcreek, Treadway.


sorry can't call guys with 2& 3 thousand dollar cues under valued.

Ryan at Muellers and Bryan Mordt pack a lot into a cue for the price. Back me into a corner and make me spend say 500 bucks, it would probably be on RAT, or a 6 pointed D series McDermott

Who builds the best cue for the money? My vote is Bob Runde and close second Bob Frey, yours?

this is tricky.

"most undervalued cue builder" and "best cue for the money" have two different meanings to me.

I'll focus on best cue for the money.

While there are many good choices, mine is Jeff Olney, for sure. Absolutely brilliant players and extreme high quality for little money.

Tied for second would be Diveney (with glass pins) and Jensen.

It's all subjective and what I like may not be what you like but there is no disputing that the ones I've mentioned are top quality and very reasonable.

best,

Mike Webb is my guy but you're right, Ryans cues play great and they're hard to beat for the $$.
He built me a jump break that is out of this world.

I like the new guy, Jerry Rauenzahn. I have seen his work and shoot with one of his cues. They hit great, he does the work on time and it wont break the bank. Yall had better get your orders in while he is still new to everyone.

Wes Hunter of Hunter Classic Cues.

I've had several of his cues and each and every one of them had top notch workmanship and excellent playability. Yet I've seen them go for give away prices here and other places.

+1 To the above

I agree about Bob Frey to be sure - seems he makes a cue that's the same caliber as Scruggs but gets much less love.

I'd also include Leon Sly - really affordable, really great playing cues, and Leon's a great guy.

I'd also say as far as value goes, Jim Pierce makes a really great hitting cue for the money.

Jerry R doesn't seem like he ever really got the acclaim he deserves as a maker either.

You just about get murdered on resale with all of these guys but they all make a fantastic cue. Pierce is the one I can understand due to some people having issues with his service. But as for all the others, it might just be to do with them being low-key people and not self-promoters as our friend The Colonel put it.

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:
Yes, my favorite cue maker.:):)

Out West it had to be Jerry Franklin (Southwest) first. His early cues sold for $125-175 and they were dandies, highly valued today if you can find one. Another very good cue maker from Sacramento is Tom Coker. Great playing cues for very reasonable prices. Of course his prices went up after his cues became so popular, but I can remember when he was selling them for under 200 each.

Bill McDaniel. He doesn't make cues anymore, but
Bill's cues are superb and still undervalued.

Plus one for McDaniel. I have several.

But in my collection, you'll find more Barnharts than anything else. Corey is my favorite maker at the moment.

Bob Dzuricky from Erie Pa. I'm a very happy customer. His workmanship is as good as anyone. He's very easy to work with, and he delivered my cue in the exact time frame he quoted when I ordered it.
