Choosing a Pool Cue in Romania


Choosing a Pool Cue in Romania

Hi, I'm from Romania (RO), so it's really hard to get good pool cues at an affordable price.

I am a middle-range player and I want to buy a new pool cue, can you choose one for me from the site below.

If possible stay under 300 Ron, which is roughly ~70 pounds.

Can you help me choose a pool cue here which I can get in Romania?

    70 pounds Sterling is about $110 USD. A decent pool cue can be had for that amount, but wouldn't include shipping to Europe. Something from Italy, Germany or Austria may be a better deal?

    A "standard," "typical," US pocket billiard cue is 147 cm long, weighs 538 grams and has a 13 mm tip diameter.

    None of the brands on the website you posted are familiar to me. Perhaps they are to someone else here?

    The UK seems a logical choice of origin but everything I ever purchased or wanted to purchase - had a poor exchange rate and was priced way above fair value in my opinion.

    Are there pool halls or pool rooms nearby? If so, many sell cues or have catalogs that may be much higher quality cues at much better prices than an "import" from outside Rumania?

    Let us know how it goes.

    Trialboj, are you using a "house stick" now? Or do you own a cue stick already?

    Now I have a house stick,

    I found two used stick, which i guess is a little bit more famous:

    KANDY K-2720 Buffalo Dominator NO.4

    I don't want a magic stick, just something which I can use for backward english, and other little but spectacular shots.

    The "fame" of the stick is irrelevant. Many good quality cues abound having names no one ever heard of.

    Some famous names had years of employee problems and production was poor. Meucci comes to mind as a classic example.

    The tip of any stick is simple to replace and shape - for great spin control. Spin, also called "English" is 50% the player's ability to cause it - and 50% the condition of the cue tip and where it stikes the cue ball at impact.

    Ask the pool hall manager/owner is he can get you a used or new stick - or, if he knows anyone that has a decent used cue for sale. Try and avoid shipping costs.
