Sneaky Pete Cue Recommendations?

Sneaky Pete Cue Recommendations?

I'm getting my new table installed tomorrow, and think I'll treat myself to my first custom within the next few months. I'm thinking of a SP or butterfly cue in the $250-$350 range. I'm not a super hard hitter. I want something with a lot of feel. One 13mm or 12.75 shaft.

I am thinking of either coco into BEM or ebony into BEM. Maybe a few "not so sneaky" details to distinguish it from a house cue.

I'd love some input on the following cue builders:

  • Bob Frey Cues (I think he's the biggest name on the list)
  • DZ cues (Dzuricky)
  • John Madden Cues(not sure if he makes anything in this price range)
  • Sugartree/Eric C Cues
  • Pat Diveney Cues (many have raved to me about his sp's and butterfly cues)
  • Dick Neighbors Cues (people I trust have plugged him)
  • Samsara bar cues (maybe a little pricier)
  • BCM/Bryan Mordt Cues (the nicest looking web site I've seen. Great pics)
  • BHQ/Brent Hartman Cues

    A couple you may want to consider include:

    • JW Petree out of Oklahoma. He makes a great sneaky pete cue.
    • Andy Gilbert cues. His jump/breaks play jam up good.
    • Joss sneaky pete cue. They play real good for the money.

    Just some to consider.

    Personally, after you decide on the cue maker you are going to buy from, you should take some time to decide on the softness or hardness, and type of tip. That is going to determine what kind of feel you are going to get.

    You said you don't hit the ball hard, so tip type is going to be a key component for you.

    I like a Sneaky that actually is sneaky.

    No joint collars or fancy work on the butt. Just a plain jane cue.

    Here is a pic of my Wayne Gunn, when screwed together the grain even matches and it is not that easy to see the joint.:)

    I currently have a Joss and it plays great. And I have played with a lot of others as well. Predator, J. Pechauer , Schon, Meucci.

    I still prefer the feeling that the cue I am playing with was custom made for me.

    I hear a lot of good things about Scott Sherbine and his cues.
