McDermott E Series: 1990 to 1999

Go down to the E-B9, that's the one I bought. Exact coloring with the Irish linen wrap. 19.5 oz / 13mm tip. Didn't realize cues appreciated. Says, based on 98% condition. Mine makes that easy. Might have to hang on to mine.

I also have a nice Joe Porper cue case. Took a bunch of pics. Need to get them on my photobucket page....don't think I can attach them here.

It depends entirely on how much you want to spend and how serious you are going to be about the game. If you just want your own distinctive cue, the any cue you like will do. The most important thing is that you are comfortable with it, and that you have a good tip. You can skimp on the stick, but do not skimp on the tip. Whatever you buy, you should replace the original tip with a new one. They person who puts on the tip will be able to shape it correctly, which is not done at the factory. As a beginner, you will want to go with a medium to soft tip. Softer tips are more forgiving and you will miscue less.

If you are going to be serious about the game then you should go with a true custom cue. You have many many different cue makers to choose from. A quick google search wil turn up some of the best and most reasonably priced ones. My next stick will be a Reeve's Cue, made by a friend of mine who is gaining in popularity with pool players across the region.

Again just remember that choosing a cue is all about what you are comfortable with, no one can choose a cue for you. You need to try different cues and choose which one you are most comfortable with.
