The Stinger technology takes the hit energy to the center of the shaft, regardless of where you hit the tip. Our tip can be much flatter than typical break cues. The flatter profile causes the Stinger tip to have a huge "sweet spot". You can miss-hit and still get the result you intended.
McDermott pool cues are proudly made in the U.S.A. and are covered by a lifetime warranty, which includes cue warpage.

Dallas KerrMy NG04 arrived today. I noticed that the advertised ''Extra 12.5'' Black Jump Handle was not included. Upon calling their customer service department I was informed that this handle is no longer sold by pooldawg and should not be included under the specifications. I only paid the extra money for this cue as opposed to the non-wrapped NG01 because I wanted the handle (not listed under the NG01 specs). I was disappointed to find that it was not included. I have yet to shoot with the cue so I cannot provide feedback yet with regards to its performance. I just wanted to warn other buyers as to what they will receive upon ordering this product. *Note from PoolDawg*This model used to come with the jumper handle but it no longer does (and we were unable to source one from McDermott). We apologized for the confusion with this and offered to get it back with a prepaid shipping label. The customer declined our offer at that time but the offer certainly still stands. We're more than happy to get this back from you for a full refund and will absolutely pay for the shipping to get it back. Just contact us if you change your mind!I would recommend this product to a friend
TurnerIt will take some playing time to get used to this new jumping cue. It seems to need a harder and more accurate stroke while striking the cue than my previous jumping cue required. I really like that it came with a jumping handle otherwise I would have had to go and purchase one for it. Overall very happy with this and as soon as I get the stroke and strike down I'm sure that it will be a trusted piece of equipment.I would recommend this product to a friend
