What Makes a Great Pool Cue?
Pool cues can vary more widely than you think, and they can make a big difference in your game. Here are some of the biggest factors to consider when shopping for yours.
Pool cues and cases come in a wide range of prices — starting around $100 and going all the way up into the high thousands. Even the most affordable cue has its own unique advantages, but there is absolutely a difference in quality between the lower-end offerings and the ones that require a more significant investment.
You don't need to go all out on yours, especially if you're only a casual player, but investing in something of good quality can definitely be worth your while.
Pool cue sizes range from 42” to 61”, and getting the right size for you can make a big difference. The most common size is 58”, so use that as a rule of thumb for determining which size is best for you based on where you fall on the height spectrum. If you're under 5'8”, then go for something smaller. If you're over 6'4”, then opt for a bigger one.
The general range of pool cue weights runs from about 18 to 21 ounces. If a cue is too light or too heavy, it can throw off your shot. The most common weight is 19 oz, so if you're of average size, then that should be where you aim. If you're under or above average height, then consider a lighter or heavier one.
When referring to pool cues, "balance" means where the majority of the weight is focused on the cue. Some cues have heavier butts, while others have a more evenly dispersed weight. Opting for a heavier butt is generally only useful for taller players, while a more balanced weight is optimal for shorter ones.
The Right Cue Can Elevate Your Game
A great cue is a must for anyone looking to take their game to the next level. When you're ready to up your game, make sure to choose from a selection of high-quality cues and cases.
