I've been reading a lot of forums lately (AZ, this one, etc.) and I see very little about Lucasi cues. Growing up, a Lucasi was the sign of a serious player. Have things changed or are they still a quality cue? (If not, they're awfully expensive!) Why don't I see more discussions involving Lucasi?
(And an aside to our Italian friends: What is the correct pronunciation: Is it Loo-case-i? Loo-cos-i? Loo-cass-i?)

I have had 3 Lucasi Cues. In the past I have used McDermmetts, Vikings, Cuetec and others. I will never go back after using the Lucasi. My Lucasi hits the same, every, every time. I have put a Predator 314 shaft on it and at times I get tooooo much english. It is a tiger! I disagree with the previous poster about them being all the same. Of course each cue may be made of the same wood, same maker, same everything but may play 100 times differently than the one made minutes before. I am a Lucasi nut and will never buy anything else.

80% of the hit and feel of the cue is in the tip
15% of the hit and feel of the cue is in the shaft
5% of the hit and feel of the cue is in the joint and butt
Given the above, and the vast span of preferences in a swath of pool players; anyone who truely believes that one cue manufacture is vastly better or worse than another is smoking somthing other than tobacco. By and large, the butt of the cue is for weight, weight distribution, and feel of the overall package. Get a tip that is right for the way YOU play YOUR game, and a straight shaft with a decent taper; and the difference between--a butt made of a single pice of wood, and one with multiple inlays, points, veneers, and other pieces of cue maker ART--is simply money.
