Hi everyone, I'm Slawek from Poland and this is my first post here :)

Anyway, and I'd like to buy a classic sneaky pete. By classic I mean 'hustler' style, brown not black, basic design, wood to wood joint, no frills. Can be used, even slightly worn. Has to be 'playable' though, i.e. 100% straight etc.
Light, 18 or 19 oz.

I have a rather tight budget so I'm thinking of something in the area of $100 (with shipping to Poland, but as far as I can see on Ebay, this is about $30). I think an original Canadian Dufferin, much like the one described here:

http://forums.azbilliards.com/showthread.php?t=153839

would be perfect and is realistic for that money. Or maybe a used Lucasi with uni-loc, or maybe something else.
I'd be willing to pay some more if you have something special to offer, though.
This is rather urgent, as I'm without a cue ATM, so I hope you can help :).

Best,
SW

Hi,

thanks everyone for the PMs. It seems I'll need more offers though. I hope I can find something soon as at the moment I'm absolutely cue-less...

By the way, this forum is impressive!

PS: once more the specs:
2 pc classic hustler style, plain, wood to wood joint, no wrap around the butt
classic design (is it called 'four points'?)
light (18-19 oz)
brown colour (cocobolo, rosewood, etc.) - not black
playable, that is straight etc.
may be a little worn
budget - about $100 with Shipping, although I'm not saying this is the upper limit if you offer something nice

Schmelke

Have you checked out Schmelke? They're made somewhat near me in Wisconsin and are a great cue for the value. You can customize some options like the weight, pin, or shaft size at no charge! Check them out!

Thanks!

I don't think I'm ready to spend $200 - unless there's something spectacular that I fall in love with.

The problem with online stores is that I fancy a used sneaky; not heavily worn of course, but not all new and shiny either. Also, I don't know what good all those brands are. New Dufferins for example don't have a great reputation. I could go for a Lucasi, but they chose to spoil their hustler sneaky with shiny gadgets!
But a whole month without a playing cue is a bit too much, so I may eventually go that way.

Best,
SW

I would go with a new cue. It really won't take you too loong to break-in the new shaft. And you don't have to worry about if the shaft is straight or all dinted from someone else. Unless you plan on playing once a week or something. The Smelkies are a good deal. Just a suggestion.
