great cue 17/01/2012Players HXT99 Pool CueVery nice cue especially at the price point. plays as well as some of the higher end cues. great balance to it without being overly forward. the Kamui ''soft''certainly feels more like a medium. there was some mushrooming on the tip after about 20 games but easily taken care of. switched from using my mcdermott and viking cues to this and the others are now collecting dust. great cue ball control with the kamui tip and a great feel when you hit.I would recommend this product to a friend.
