    Do you have any more info on the cue maker? How do these cues compare to the likes of Hunt and JP?

    I'm learning, so have patience with me!
    These cues are of the very high quality and are in no way lesser then of those like John Parris , Stamford, Trevor an so on and so forth. I've owned few JP ultimates, Trevor white, Stamford , Tyrone, Robert Osbourne etc and Mac cues are right there with the Big Boys when it comes to craftsmanship and quality of materials. Playability wise I can't fault it although it's purely subjective thing as every player have a different preference when it comes to the feel of the cue. The only way to find out what's best for you is to try few cues out and then see what traits of the cue are best suited to your style of play.

    Hard to say really..i just think that todays cheap ash shafts have no feel and the just dont look right unless you spend good money for good wood. Go compare this shaft to a shaft from raymond from excuisite cues or jason owen for that matter.

    Playability wise this cue fees superb. Lively ,responsive with solid hit and good feedback. Nothing else to add.

    Although I see that you are an expert in that field if you can determine how it feels by just looking at the pics.

    Thanks for saving me posting that I thought it was a pants reply.

    While I might believe it if an expert had a magnifying glass on it; I struggle that it can be done from a pic.....
