** Quick update ** Found a cue through a fellow AZB member. Really appreciate all the replies to this thread and the PM's. Thanks guys!

I’m looking to purchase a custom player, and I’d like to stay around (or under :) ) the $300 price range. Prefer a plain jane, but “might” consider a nice sneaky. I’d like for the cue to be wrap less, and the more curly maple, the better. Prefer a 3/8 x 10, but that’s not set in stone. A close second to curly maple would be a nice looking birdseye. Would like for it to roll straight, and hitting like a Mack truck would be a good bonus. If such a cue exists in that price range, feel free to share.

Thanks!

I second the JD cues sold here. They hit a metric shit-ton and look great doing it.

Ask Fast Lenny, who sold a gorgeous -R- after shooting with one.

Wow, nice. I did say "the more curly maple the better" huh! There are a couple I'm considering, and I'm awaiting and hadful of pics from some PMs that were sent. Any more out there?

These are all under $300.

I use a Jacoby Cocobolo SP, it plays VERY well. I consider these cues to be amazing value and a great way to get into playing with good cues. Thicker shaft, harder to **** it up and has a feel that's not so different from a lower end cue that you feel lost, just a comfortable segue into something with a bit more precision. I have reshaped the tip twice with plenty of tip left, great player, only problem is that it's so convincing people often try to pick it up as a bar cue or ask me for it if I happen to play someone in a bar.

Seriously, I'm looking for a cue with more flare just to avoid the confusion. But then again, I've bought and won about 6 cues since I started playing, so I have options, I just keep going back to the jacoby. That said, I have an espiritu, a Meucci original(I know this isn't custom, but the shaft hits like magic), a Carolina Custom with very little play, an older Joss that's a bit worn but plays WONDERFUL, a few dale perry's (some guy around here got some deal with Dale Perry and gambles these things all over town) and a few others that I would sell around that price.
