Help Choosing a $350 Pool Cue

Help Choosing a $350 Pool Cue

I recently decided to buy a "good" cue, and I want to spend $350 to $400.

I have been looking at a LOT of cues, and have narrowed it down to two, both McDermott's. The McDermott M72A Dubliner, and the McDermott G402 cue. I really like the McDermott M16A Sedona, but that's up there at $750.

I have looked at all brands, read lots of reviews, critiques, and opinions. There are a ton of cues out there. I like the Schon cues, but they are out of my price range.

I like the cues with a linen wrap, and points on the wood. No fancy artwork or animals. I like a traditional look, like a Tad cue. I used to watch Ed Kelly play in Vegas at The Cue Club in the sixties, and he used a Tad cue.

The McDermott 72A Dubliner doesn't have points, but something other than that draws me to that cue. I do not like the red McDermott Dubliner.

Am I in the right place with the McDermott cues or should I be considering others?

I also like the variable weights.

And just how much weight does the G core graphite of McDermott add to their cues?

I know I can find a good used cue, but unless it was a killer deal, I want to go new this time. It's just hard to pick one pool cue out of hundreds.

    Regarding the mcdermott cues under $350, take a look at the following:

    • McDermott G222 Pool Cue
    • McDermott GS02 Pool Cue
    • McDermott GS06 Pool Cue
    • McDermott GS07 Pool Cue
    • McDermott G201 Pool Cue

    Forget McDermott cues. For $400 you can get a nice Joss. The JOS-16 is $408.00 on Ozone Billiards and that includes delivery. It's a beautiful cue and definitely better than a $400 McDermott. Also, for about $75.00 more, you can get a new Schon cue. Schon's and Joss are some of the sweetest hitting cues you will ever find. If you look on ebay, you can find a nice Jacoby for around the same price. Also, way better than McDermott. If you haven't bought the McDermott yet, don't do it. If you have, well, good luck with it.
