My vote is for a cue I just purchased off Ebay for a house cue when friends come over as I hate the fiberglass sticks that came with the table even though I don't play with them.
The cue to which I refer is a 2 piece Dufferin Sneaky Pete brand new for $16 plus $7 shipping.
It has a great balance and feel and a real sweet hit. With the stock shaft I would rate it every bit the equal of my Viking F108 with the stock shaft. Not as neat a design but 8% of the price.
