    Default Poison vs anything else

    Hi there,

    I am new here, donīt know why I havenīt signed up before now as I frequent the store and the forum.

    I was wondering about the Poison cues, quality and how the Venom2 is as a LD shaft.

    My current cue is a Cuetec with the R360 shaft. Itīs served me well, a dozen tournament wins etc.

    The Poison cues interest me because of their relationship with Predator.

    Seem like decent quality and are in my price range.

    I am asking here because I live in Iceland and there isnīt a single store here that sells billiard supplies.

    Iīll be staying in Seattle for 3 weeks in May and I know a place there that sells many of the top brands and I want to know if the Poison cues are driving 25 miles for.

    Iīm just asking about quality, I want something well made that will last, although I see myself upgrading to a high end cue in the future. Not asking if I the cue will have a signifacant impact on my game or performance.
    I myself have cleared three 10ball tables in a row and won a few local tournaments with a cue from the rack shaped like a banana. After all the player makes the balls. The Cuetec is the only cue Iīve ever owned, never tried anything else.

    What is your stance on Cuetec VS Poison.

    I reckon the difference quality wise is substancial.

    And also, if you would recommend something else in that price range $250-350.

    Thanks in advance,

    Raggi from Iceland.

    Hello, the venom shafts are great... some of the best equipment for the price. I have seen both and the Poison is a better quality cue backed with a lifetime warranty. The black widow cues are very nice.

    Hi Rick,

    Thanks for the quick response.
    As previously stated, my access to billiard supplies is less than limited.

    I always use the elkmaster tips as this is the only tip the only good poolhall here stocks.

    I was thinking about having the Sarin tip replaced by the elkmaster.

    What is your thought on Sarin vs Elkmaster.

    When I first got my R360 shaft it had a Tiger Everest tip and I didn't like it at all...

    Best regards,

    Thanks for your prompt response again.

    One thing and then I'll leave you alone.

    I was wondering if you knew if the Poison and Predator are completely compatible.

    I was thinking about upgrading to a Predator 314-3 in some time when I've started playing again and got my game on track, when I can justify spending that much.

    Would the 314-3 shaft go on a Poison butt, no fuss?

    Thanks in advance.

    No they will not interchange since the Poison has a bullet joint. thanks

    One more thing, I was looking into different soft tips, seems like the Kamui Black SS is similiar in density.

    The kamui is layered and probably holds itīs shape better than the elkmaster but I was thinking if it would make a difference or it would

    I feel stupid for asking this but is there any major difference in playability between the elkmaster and the Kamui?

    I feel like I have massive cb control with the elkmaster (but like I said, never tried anything else), I can draw from corner to corner on a 9ft and I gotten used to being able to make these massive draw shots. Wondering if itīs worth the risk changing to a new one just for the sake of trying.

    Thanks again as always for your very quick responses.

    There is a hug difference between these two tips. Elkmaster is very soft and will not hold its shaft where the Kamui SS is still more like a medium feel and will not mushroom. I would stick to what you like.
