    It's more a matter of personal preference.
    Some players prefer more or less arrows/or tight grain pattern/ or ..........

    Something looks like cheap to me, may looks like expensive to someone else.
    But wether you could judge the playability of the cue just by the look of it??
    I doubt it.

    When it comes to making a cue by hand, the most important part is selecting a piece of decent wood to start with.

    well, in this case Richy is an experienced cue maker not to mention an decent player as well.
    I've dealed with him and his work is as good as any JP/TW/MW. ... and other top cue makers. ( not suggesting anyone has denied this part btw . generaly speaking ).

    On a second note, you are buying a cue online without first trying it . The cue may not suits your game (regardless of who the cue maker is ). The only way to know for sure is trying it out .

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

    Only one way and that's to play with it ...nobody can tell how a cue plays by looking

    You could be right Warren I believed I could tell the quality of a shaft just by feeling it.

    Yes well feeling it makes more sense as opposed to looking at a pic

    You won't find a better ash cue for this sort of money.

    Grab yourself a bargain whilst you can.

    I'm saying 17oz is a bit on the light side for a snooker cue
    The weight of the cue
