I got this for my boyfriend as a gift. It looks just as good as it did in the picture!The only downside is, is that the tip is NOT screw on tips like advertised.The tips are glue on tips. That is okay too, but if it is advertised in one way, then I wish that it came that way.OH! And also, there weren't any replacement tips...so watch for that also!
The cue came with chips in the both ends of the stick. The colors of the balls are not even the correct colors, the 9 ball is green! The stick is short and made cheaply. For the price, it would be good for a beginner, but not an everyday shooter.
For the money, you can't beat this stick with a stick. It looks nice. It feels nice. And most importantly, it is straight. The whole package is well worth the money. Thinking of getting another with a different pattern. I hope it is as good.
