What is a Sneaky Pete?

On February 29, 2008, in Billiards Products, by Michael Feiman

The Sneaky Pete or Hustler cue is the oldest and most traditional design for a two piece cue. The original concept for the Sneaky Pete was to create a cue that would look like a standard bar cue Meucci 97 Series - Meucci 9701 Sneaky Pete Pool Cue Stick (Red Dot Shaft)when assembled. That way, if a pool hustler was using a high end cue, his opponents would see his cue and just assume it was a bar cue.  An example of a sneaky pete cue is the Meucci 9701 pictured here.

Today, fewer people buy Sneaky Pete cues for the sole purpose of hustling unsuspecting pool players. Because of the traditional style and inherent beauty of the Sneaky Pete, it remains one of the most popular and best selling pool cue design styles on the market today.
