Looking for a pool cue? We offer the best selection of cues and cue pool accessories on the web. Every pool cue is on sale, and we strive to only offer the best available.
What should you look for in a pool cue? Well the most important attributes are length and weight of the cue. Most cues are around 57 or 58 inches, but there are also shorter ones around 40 inches for special shots. If your room is cramped on a side we recommend keeping a short pool cue on hand to navigate certain shots without marking your wall up. As for weight, some people prefer lighter sticks around 18oz, while others prefer heavier sticks around 21oz. This is all based on personal preference.
Another major factor with regards to price is the quality and styling of the pool cue. Some are made with harder, smoother wood that will not dent and that will provide a smoother stroke on the cue. Others that are less expensive may be a softer wood that dents easily, so it may not last longer. In addition, cheap pool cues can tend to warp and bend over time. A good way to test if yours is warped or bent is to roll it on the surface of the pool table and check for wobble. If the pool stick wobbles, then you know there is some warpage. If it wobbles a lot, then it may be worth getting a new pool cue. Dents cause the stick to not slide smoothly and feel awkward when you're shooting. If a stick is too dented we recommend replacing the cue.
If you do opt to get a higher-quality, more expensive pool cue such as a Viking Cue, then we also recommend some accessories that may help keep your pool sticks straight and smooth. First, a pool cue rack is helpful so sticks don't get banged up or left out to be damaged when you're not playing. In addition, a pool cue case is helpful to make sure no one (such as kids) can come and grab your pool cue off a rack and cause damage. It's also helpful to protect the cue while traveling.
