Product Exceeded My Expectations 05/01/2013Scorpion GRP05 Pool CueI own and use more expensive cues for tournaments. I wanted a good cue to play games with friends. After doing some research I discovered Johnny Archer really takes a vital interest in the products he endorses. Today many athletes and celebrities will put their name on products without much thought to the product but for the endorsement paycheck. This cue exceeded my expectation. The craftsmanship is excellent and the cue is beautiful with stylish Scorpion logo. The cue feels good in my hands. It feels sturdy and durable with its fiberglass coating and has held up under some tough conditions (my use is tough enough)! The golf style grip gives me a feeling of more control and the shaft feels excellently balanced. If you are beginner looking for that first cue or even a more experienced player like myself I think you will enjoy the Scorpion GRP05 pool cue. I have even used this cue in some of my tournament play and did quiet well. My cue came with stylish Scorpion Joint protectors and I ordered the soft case. The shipment came packaged extremely well. I am most pleased. For price this product exceeded my expectations and that is why I give it 5 Stars. However with Johnny Archer overseeing this product that should be no surprise.I would recommend this product to a friend.
