Great beginner libre cue
February 25, 2011
I have McDermott, Cuetec, Lucasi, Meucci, and Predator cues, prior to purchase this Longoni cue. I was contemplating between the Longoni and the Layani cue.
I am glad I purchased this "beginner" Longoni cue. I selected the 16.5 oz and have been practicing the nursing shots. I found that I have better control at the nursing shot with the Longoni cue for Libre game.
However, overall, I love my Predator cue more for different billiard games, like Carom. If Predator makes a 16.5 oz cue, I would buy it over the Longoni cue in a heart beat! My Predator workmanship is much better than this Longoni that I am reviewing right now.
The French flame on the butt of this Longoni cue is painted on and it is not a very good paint job because you can clearly tell that it is painted on. The Longoni tip is excellent. The wood joint is better than the Predator. It is a well balance cue. For the money, it is a great beginner Libre cue.
Service wise, Ozone Billiards is great! I chose the "Live Help" feature to ask questions prior to place the order. They made me wait a good 5 - 10 minutes before they were able to address my questions. As far as shipping, I placed the order on Thursday and received the cue on Monday! How cool is that?
