Receive the wrong cue from Budget Billiards?

...because I did, too. If you were disappointed after opening up a Meucci SWBB1, not to worry. I have your Meucci Starlight-SL-1 with the uncoated wrap.

However, I'd get a refund on that priority shipping you paid for.

Kinda defeats the purpose of a linen wrap IMO - but I have one so I guess I shouldn't say anything.

Ched <-- didn't realize it would be quite SO coated. *shrugs*

Have you contacted them?
What was their response? (I'm guessing they'd be more than happy to fix the problem considering the price difference)

Yes I did contact them and they responded quickly to say they would fix the issue. Since this is a large pool community, I thought that the person that ordered this level of Meucci is very likely a member.

I'll be honest...for a split second I thought about keeping the cue, but I realized..

1. It's probably someone else's order that they waited on for 3 weeks like me
2. It has a black dot shaft instead of the Pro I wanted
3. I would always think about my dishonesty when I played with it
4. It's kinda ugly, or maybe what I ordered is ugly and I like ugly. Not my style. Purple seashell inlays in the butt? nah...

Meucci has been finishing over linen for decades as a standard.
.

It is becoming popular on other cues as well. Especially refinish work. The spec wraps are not bad finished, but a black linen wrap done properly can look as black as ebony.

I meant to say Budget Billiards (Bob's Meucci factory). Budget Cues is Bob's daughter's company.

I read all the horror stories... even yours with this same photo, lol. Supposedly they have fixed these issues and developed the barbox cue so that you can break with it. I'm not saying any of that is true or if it's just marketing, but I've always wanted one will provide honest feedback of my experience.

If it doesn't work out, I swear I will jump ship and buy a Mezz immediately.

Budget Cues has awesome customer service, and was quick to fix the issue and throw in some freebies!
