    this is true, but there is nothing wrong with choosing a cue for it’s aesthetics as long it is a good quality cue that fits your needs. some people prefer a plain looking sneaky pete. others prefer a cue with gawdy paint schemes/decals/over-used inlay’s (i have no problem with inlay’s… just some people i know somehow think that the more inlay’s their cue has… that the better shot they are)

    After watching Dr. Cue, I learned that its all about the shaft, the hard wood, the hard tip, and a tight rack.

    Really poor and should be redone. It should include discussion on joints, cue weights, tip diameters.

    Whats the average price for a decent starting cue stick?

    I got a old dufferin sneaky pete does the job love it wish I could get another plays the way I like. sucks when Im drinking though always mix it up with the house stick that I grab to break with.

    agree, better then most house cues. I got a $15 cue with Guiness logos on it… ooh yeah =D LOL — Happy saint patricks day!

    I think the Dr. Cue is just covering the basic. I met Dr. Cue awesome person. If you a beginner stick to a$150 cue an under. As you progress you can move up. Shot making is of course a major part of the game so is understanding it. You can a be a good shot maker and lose to someone who is a mediocre shot maker that has a better understanding of the game. I currently play with a Joss Cue that was bought very slightly used for 150 and I am thinking about a Tiger Shaft.

    a $20 or a $500,000 cue stick will not make a shark an there more to a cue then the dr is telling you so don,t buy it becuse it look pretty buy for what it needed for breaking or just shooting an how the stick feels too you in your hands.

    i never seen a bank shot video worth using in the game

    Dr. Cue is a great teacher. What you really look for when buying a first cue is the right weight (19.oz is considered the best, and most competitors use that), you learn about shafts and shaft technology when your game improves. 314′s are considered best, however beginners can’t really tell the difference or use it correctly to their advantage. Fiberglass covered shafts aren’t really players choice, since their glide is somewhat awkward (people use gloves with those mostly).

    I also have predator IKON #2!!! Its the shit! Predator is unbelivable!! The difference is crazy if you really know what your doing!!

  14. crazydude75927 on August 24, 2011 at 2:56 am

    lol I think you would need the 7 from me if you think things like weight taper shaft diameter hit and feel dont matter.

  15. 2pistolcorky on August 24, 2011 at 3:52 am

    efren reyes played won a tournament with a 15 dollar cue… all that otherstuff doesnt matter as long as its durable and lasts long

  16. Memememe46 on August 24, 2011 at 4:04 am

    I have a Viking G02 , Awesome novice cue.

  17. patrickpicache108 on August 24, 2011 at 4:44 am

    Absolutely!I play with a 10$ cue and i beat lots of people.lol

  18. jojoson22 on August 24, 2011 at 5:12 am

    i have a predator ikon 4 but instead of the 314 shaft i opted for the Z2. I bought my cue back in january and i play in league 5 nights a week and i am still trying to get used to it. moral: if your a beginner or novice i would advise buying something cheap and easy to use and work your way up to the more expensive and challenging cues. you dont need to waste your time or money on a shaft that decreases deflection if you havnt incorporated deflection into your game yet.

    OMFG!!!! There are cues that range from $20 to $200,000 and more. The super expensive cues are usually top brands or custom made cues from different cuemakers. As Dr. Cue was saying it all depends on how much custom work is on a cue that determines it’s price.

  21. Traceurb on August 24, 2011 at 7:06 am

    its not about age!!

  22. crazydude75927 on August 24, 2011 at 7:32 am

    Did he mention weight, taper, shaft diameter,hti, or feal? These are major factors in choosing a cue!!! I dont think this was greatly informative. I do apreciate what doctor cue does for the begginers in our great game.
