Best Cue?

Reckon I'll toss my 2 cents into this cookie jar. Over the years I have played with Adams, Schick, Palmer, Black, Joss, Huebler, Lucasi, McDermott, Schon, Viking, Schurtz, Cuetec,Mali, I played with a Meucci for years & others as well. I currently play with a Predator. I have to consider that my memory may be tainted by nostalgia however slightly. Even so I would have to say the best cue I ever played with was one that like a few other folks was stolen from me. Mine on a Christmas day no less. I'll write a about that later. Years ago Omaha John sold (CHEAP) his Rick Benson to my wife to give to me on my birthday. It was my prize possession. He won the Miller lite world seris of tavern pool playing with that cue. It had four shafts & the initials JCS on the butt. It hit solid as a rock. It was 19 3/4 oz. To me it was the best and priceless. I played well with it. I would like to know where it is today & would dearly love to get it back. Good luck with that huh? :( Billy Bones

Not sure if Rich Benson is still making cues or not...he was still at it a couple of years ago.

Recently I have attempted to get contact info for R. Benson to have a duplicate made of the cue I got from John. Last I knew he was in Kennawick, WA. To date my efforts have beento no avail. Anyone have current contact info? I am looking to replace my Predator next spring.
