I have been playing pool for most of my life. I have several high end cues that I have used over the years in tournaments and BCA leagues. I recently got involved with some friends in a bar league and did not want to bring any of my good cues to the bars. After doing a little research, I decided to order the Vector "Sneaky Pete" SP2 to use in the bar league. After playing several games with it, I was pleasantly surprised at how good it really is. It is well balanced and hits straight. A lot of bang for the buck. I would not be afraid to use this cue in any game on any table. And, at the price, I don't have to worry about all the things that can happen to a cue in a bar. I would definitely buy another one if need be.
