I started to play pool again after a 25 year absence. I still had my cues from the 1980's however I was afraid to use them due to their collector value and age.
I spent two weeks here at oZone Billiards looking over cues and their spec's and settled on the above Griffin GR17 Cue weighted to 21 oz. with the stock tip, I had never shot with or heard of Action Cues Griffin Series, so my purchase was made totally on my needs and the spec's of this cue and I am very pleased with this cue.
My first shot made with the Griffin GR17 Cue brought back memories of years ago and I felt like I was playing with one of my old higher priced cues.
It has a very solid feel, in that every strike to the cue ball gives you the feedback of a very solid built cue. I have already played a couple hundred games and this Griffin GR17 it plays and feels as good as the first shot.
The Butt Stock with the it Irish linen wrapping and the design is just beautiful. The cue has great balance. I have no desire to change the stock tip and I was also pleased and shocked that the cue came with free of charge a set of joint protectors, which is rare for a cue in this price range. The taper and shaft are made of a high grade straight grain maple of a quality in my opinion of a cue costing much more.
I mentioned earlier, I was out of the game for 25 years and started to play again with a cue from back when I played which cost twice as much back then. I am so pleased with the GR17 I now use the old cue as my break cue and the GR17 as my main cue. I was very impressed with the English I can achieve without very much effort and like I said this cue is solid, you can feel each hit.
Anyone who needs a cue be it a beginner or league player, in my opinion this is the cue will not disappoint.
I also want too add that oZone Billiards fantastic extra's ( Free Case or Low Cost Upgrade Case and Choice of Tip again at a low cost and other offers) that are available with this cue are a great cost saver.
