In the pool hall, I notice a lot of folks with very expensive cues. I know much of that is preference and while it is true that there is a difference between ok cues and great cues, the price difference shouldn't have to be 500 to $1500 dollars. That's just crazy as far as play-ability is concerned. Bottom line, lay any cue down on the slate and watch it forever. It will never make a ball or position the "rock" by itself. The best players can beat average players using a broom handle. Bottom line, a cue that feels right and plays true will not let you down. My HXTE20 is excellent. Ultra straight, balanced, sounds great when cueing and looks sharp. I am running out and keeping up with players that spout about their expensive cues. Remember, no cue can play by itself. Consider this the next time you want to buy a cue and give the player (I guess they are now Pure X) HXT line a trial run. You won't be disappointed. I am very happy with my cue.
