    Kris, you might want to look at this week-old post?

    Choosing a pool cue for experienced beginner

    Kris, I also think it is sad that you do not have your own pool cue. Therefore this is what you should know.

    You should know that good pool cues begine at about $60 and you can get perfectly playable cues under $100. There are a large variety in this price range, and the only rational to go outside this price range is low-deflection shaft technology (shafts in the $200+ range all by themselves.) To a very good first order, you first cue should be one that appeals to your eye, and feeld good in your hands. At this point in your pool playing career, you can adapt to any other parameter of the cue you buy {weight, balance point, tip, ferrule, shaft, taper,.....}

    The other thing you should understand is that there is no way for anyone on this sied of the internet can fully and properly disclose how careful you have to be with your new cue to keep it from getting all banged up. Thus, you should consider your first cue to be a write off. Buy one, use it for a couple of years while examining other peoples cues, how they play, how they look, what your real preferences are, THEN go out and buy the long term pool cue.

    Kris, there's nothing "special" about a Meucci HOF-2 that you've never had "in-hand."

    Never - ever - buy a USED stick you've never touched, stroked a few times or examined up close.

    Unless of course you're rich, don't really care or love long-shots ;-)

    Hi Kris, I am also a mad about playing pool and understand your curiosity. Last month I bought Meucci cue online for $406. It was really worth it and turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. It has the red dot shaft and Ivory colored collar with thin green ring and purple blocks.
