Review for 'Lucasi Hybrid LHC97 Pool Cue'
The LHC97 was my first serious cue; a present from my wife on Christmas in 2009. To this day I use it in every game and it performs exactly the same as it did the very first time. I started with the stock 12.75mm size and 18oz weight but after a year I advanced in my playing ability and decided to turn the shaft down to 10mm and replace the stock tip with a Kamui medium. Already performing consistently well I noticed an immediate improvement from my adjustments. The precision accuracy and cue ball control delivered by this set-up are just phenomenal. Everything about Lucasi's Hybrid cue allows it to function more instinctively as an extension of your arm than a foreign object held in your hands. For the price I couldn't find a better value. The only complaint I could remotely think of is that after thousands of hours of playing time the G5 grip began to deteriorate from sweat and friction. I'd estimate my playing time at approximately 25 hours each week for the entire life of the cue and the wear is just now barely noticeable. It in no way affects the performance and is merely an issue of appearance. Competing against players using McDermott Lambrose and Predator the Lucasi LHC97 led me to victory for less than half the price. A very affordable and reliable item for any skill level.
I would recommend this product to a friend.
