hi,

 I'm abit stuck as to deciding whether i should get a cuetec or viking cue,
i've almost got my mind set on a viking so far since i heard the cuetec
cues have a lousy hit...anyone want to back this comment up? (although
cuetec does say it feels like wood).

later,
kevin

VIKING ALL THE WAY. I do not own a Viking cue, nor do I own a C.T. cue
for that matter. However, I have played with both, and although CT's
hit is not lousy, it's not as good as Viking's. That's one thing I can
say Viking, being a huge manufacturer of Cues has maintained; it's
hit. I once played with a 4 or 500 dollar Viking with no name on it,
and thought I was playing with a custom. They don't look too shabby
either.

So find a dealer who carries the brands you're interested in and hit some balls
with them.  If they give you any static about it, go somewhere else.

I've played with a couple of Cuetec cues, (they had the "visible" wood shafts)
including Mike Massey's.  No big deal.  Nothing major wrong or right.  I've
played with four or five Vikings.  Same results.

Ideally, you should play with as many different brands and models as possible.
One of the benefits of becoming "known" to a lot of players is that you can
hit a few balls with their cue and let them bend your ear about the benefits
of whatever technology/material/builder.  You just take notes and compare
the results after you're done.
