  1. i have a predator ikon 4 but instead of the 314 shaft i opted for the Z2. I bought my cue back in january and i play in league 5 nights a week and i am still trying to get used to it. moral: if your a beginner or novice i would advise buying something cheap and easy to use and work your way up to the more expensive and challenging cues. you dont need to waste your time or money on a shaft that decreases deflection if you havnt incorporated deflection into your game yet.

  2. McDermott M82C Assassins Predator 314-2

  3. OMFG!!!! There are cues that range from $20 to $200,000 and more. The super expensive cues are usually top brands or custom made cues from different cuemakers. As Dr. Cue was saying it all depends on how much custom work is on a cue that determines it’s price.

  4. its not about age!!

  5. Did he mention weight, taper, shaft diameter,hti, or feal? These are major factors in choosing a cue!!! I dont think this was greatly informative. I do apreciate what doctor cue does for the begginers in our great game.

  6. wow.. i had no idea cue sticks were that expensive…

  7. so is the ring under the skinny one good or bad?

  8. I have a McDermott with a 314 shaft. I love it. I went from a 4 to a 5 shortly after getting the shaft. Definitely helped improve my accuracy.

  9. he is the 2008 trickshot champion

  10. i got a viking with a predator 314 shaft and shoot very well with it!!!!

  11. z 314 2 the way to go

  12. its all in tha shaft.. not the butt..predator 314`2 is by far the best

  13. a 12 year old could beat a 30 year old given the 12 year old practiced and the 30 year old didn’t practice as much… nevertheless i dr. cue is a great online teacher

  14. i’m 16years old and i i have learn a lot things from dr.cue i can beat a 24 years old … with that cue control!!!

  15. you are a great teacher ! explains better than other instructors. keep it up and more power. God bless Dr. cue.

  16. Wached them all too these are gr8 videos for me as im a total beginner my game has improved alot thanks Dr Cue!!!!!!!!!

  17. When I go out and see people doing these things wrong it is frustrating to play with them. I used to try to tell them simple stuff like the ghostball, forward english(follow), and low center stop shots. But now I’ll just tell them to come here.

  18. Same, I love Dr. Cue, his style of teaching is so precise and clear. I’ve been playing pool since I was in middle school (now college) and I haven’t fully understood the game until I came across Dr. Cue. Thanks for the wonderful lessons ! My Favorite lesson was the Bridge, boy was I frustrated, now I’m ready steady 🙂

  19. Watched them all. Great work.
