I've been ordering the best sticker cues I can find from China (don't hate me), with good hard maple and uniloc (copy) joints, then turbocharging them by retapering the shaft, adding the best components with linen phenolic ferrules, acrylic pads and real kamui/tiger/zan tips. You end up with a cue that plays as well as any professional cue for pennies on the dollar. Just the tip job would cost you $45! If you are more concerned about impressing people with your skill, and not how much you spend, this is the perfect option. I could not make them fast enough! I had people litterally running out the door at tournaments with money in their hands to get one, and would be sold out before I even got inside. Because of the Covid 19 pandemic, I've been able to get ahead and finally offer them here on my website. I don't make much money, but I like getting an awesome cue into the hands of players that have never experienced what a professional shaft setup feels like. These are limited to what's in stock. Call for options.
