Well just yesterday I sold my first cue back to its original owner after having it for 6-7 months and only playing for 9-10 months i feel using that cue has extended my game greatly. But now im stuck in the predicament of picking myself a new cue. I don't know whats good, and whats better but right now i have two choices..

First choice

Second Choice

*Note that my first cue was a lucasi so i just naturally picked those.


Please help me out with either these two or something better for around the same price!

I don't really know much about pool nor am I any good, but I joined a league about 6 months ago and bought this cue:

I can definitely say that Lucasi makes an excellent cue. Between your two choices, I like how the second choice looks.

Any good quality cue will do you just fine. A good pool player can well with anything that is at least straight and has the weight that they prefer. In other words, it's much more about the player than the stick.

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.

McDermott cues are pretty decent too.

I used to use one of these back in the day when I was playing some serious pool.

I'd agree. After a certain price-point you are probably paying more for brand name or gimmicks than you are for some real function.

To the OP, I like the look of the first cue. BUt you're probably fine with either one.
