Cutec or Scorpion Pool Cue


Cutec or Scorpion Pool Cue

I know there are a lot of brands of sticks out there. For now, I have settled between Scorpion and Cuetec. I am looking at the $100.00 - $150.00 range. I am a decent shooter but I do not want to go into the higher costing sticks at this time.

Anyone have experience with both or either stick and have positive or negative stick experience.

    A Cuetec would be a solid investment and they make quality cues in that price range. However, if I were you, I would do research on both brands and look for warranties. Many dealers are not "authorized" and if you purchase from them you will void yourself of any warranty. I would contact cuetec by phone and see if they have any warranties and a list of authorized dealers. I can tell you I went to Cuetec's website and couldn't find any info on warranties or dealers, so beware. You should not limit yourself to 2 brands. Many high quality companies make great cues in that $ range. I spent 175 on a Viking with a lifetime warranty against shaft warpage. The shaft is extremely low deflection, and they make some beautiful cues. They provide a full list of authorized dealers on their website and tell you straight up what they cover and what will void the warranty. Cuetec is 20 years old. Viking is 43 years old. Just because Allison Fisher plays Cuetec doesn't mean you should. Good luck on your search I'm sure you will love whatever you get. Just research, research, research!

    Hi Justanotherevoutionary, Thank you for the reply. I had decided on a Scorpion stick 2 days after posting. The Cutec looks great too. I also purchased another Scorpion shaft with the thought that I would use one shaft for regular play and the second for breaking. Years and Years ago, I could shoot a pretty good stick (back in '76-'79). Since then I have only played pool a couple of handful of times. Never got to that '79 expertise of shooting again but now that I have a nice new Olhausen 8 foot table with some pretty decent 1 piece Dufferin sticks, I have decided to see just how far I can go. I use to shoot a good 9-ball on 9' tables and 8-ball on 7' thru 10' tables. I played almost everyday (literally) when I was in the military on 8', 9' and 10' foot tables ('76 thru '79). The army actually had some decent tables.

    Anyway tested out the new Scorpion and started getting very nervous. (never bought a nice stick before) I was having problems sinking a ball. Tested the second shaft for breaking. This experience too was very bad. With the 1 piece Dufferin 20 oz stick I can sink at least one ball on 19 out of 20 breaks consistently. No balls were going in on the breaks. Instead of getting disappointed. I played for hours with the new sticks. I am glad I took that approach. After probably 40-45 8 ball games and shooting all the balls, I am now getting "kinda proficient" with the different Scorpion shafts and now playing "kinda decent" pool but nothing to really brag about yet. Practice will tell.

    Thanks for listening and appreciate the comments. Especially the "research research research". That is exactly me whenever I buy something.

    Thanks Again Steve
