Help with cue selection

Help with cue selection

Hello all and thanks for your help in advance.

I currently have a Cuetec Mahogany series cue. I personally am not satisfied with the action I receive from this cue. What brand of cue offers the most action on the cue ball with relative ease? I also like a very smooth, slick shaft... something the Cuetec doesn't properly provide for me. I am looking to spend somewhere under $300. Thanks!

    No one can tell you what kind of stick to get based on your likes and needs because no one knows exactly what you want in a stick. People can give you their recommendations based on their likes, but that does not mean you will like what they like or recommend.

    I play with a $175 shaft and a $29.00 butt made in China. It suits me fine and I do well with it. I played with my friends $800 stick on occasion and I do not care for it.

    Go to some different web sites and shop for what you want. Call their customer service and speak to them and get your info first hand.

    Good luck.

    Well if your looking for a performance cue sounds like you might want to try out someones predator. If you see someone with a predator in your pool hall, compliment their cue and ask if you could try it out to see if you like predator cause you've been thinking of getting one. They will most likely not oblige. I have not had experience with the other performance cues, but I'm sure they might work just as well. Theirs also 2 types 314-2 and z-2. 314-2 is 12.75mm and the z-2 is 11.9 or 12mm. Personally I like the 314-2 because the longer shots might be affected by the accidental english because of the thinner shaft with the z-2. Their shafts are generally pretty slick but if not you can buy oil for your shaft at some pool halls comes in a little inch bottle a few dabs will do.
