I bought this cue for my husband for Christmas. It is a beautiful cue and now that he has used it several times he loves it. We shot yesterday and he stated that it is one of the nicest cues he has ever used. My husband has been playing pool since he was in his 20's he is now in his 60's. It is very straight and extremely accurate in the shots. The price was extremely reasonable - for the money I do not think you will find a nicer cue.
This was my first time buying anything from billards.com and I must say I was very impressed with their service. I ordered the cue online about a week before Christmas and I received it on Christmas Eve - making for the perfect gift. I will definitely buy from this company again. The only negative thing I will say is that in the picture on-line the wood looks white and dark - it is definitely not white it is tan like the color of bar cues with the dark wood. Still a very impressive cue just not as dramatic looking as the picture.
