EC001 13/12/2011Action ECO01 Pool CueFor 20 bucks this cue is alright. Anymore and its pushing it. It has a great tip which is the only plus I can give it. It has a black collar and the shaft is stained a reddish brown. Not even an even stain. Light and dark kinda swirly. It is closer to 18 oz instead of 19. The insert for screwing is aluminum instead of brass and kind of looks fairly cheap. I got this for a home bar so it is ok. Good cue for a beginner.I would not recommend this product to a friend.
