Worth Getting a New Predator Shaft for a Players Cue?


Worth Getting a New Predator Shaft for a Players Cue?

I have a Players cue and never use it as I don't really like it all that much. It was a gift. So right now, I use my friends cues which are a Viking and a Schon cue.

Would I be better off buying a new cue or maybe buying a predator shaft for my current Players cue?

Also, does anyone have any experience with the Tiger shafts or even the Black Dot Meucci shafts?

Any suggestion would be great.

    First, I have no idea what a players Cue is, sorry.

    Second, you state you never use it. So the question is do you want to spend $50 - $300 for a new shaft on what I would guess is a medium quality cue you don't like? Or do you want to spend $100 - $500 on a new cue that is a unknown entity that you will have to learn to use?

    One never knows how a new Cue will fit their style and even changing shafts will take time to adapt.

    Others care to comment?

    "Players" is a cue manufacturer like McDermott, Joss, Viking etc.

    As a matter of fact I have one and am very happy with it.

    @xwizard2183, what is it that you don't like about the Players cue?

    Is it one piece or two? How many ounces does it weigh? If you received it as a gift, have you put the hours into becoming familiar with it?

    @Fenwick makes some good points in his post. Are you ready to spend money on something you may not like either?

    The best decision in your case is to visit a cue shop in person instead of ordering a new unknown cue through an internet shop. Walk into a pool cue store and try some different cues with different weights, balance points, etc.
