Looking for an Entry Level Pool Cue


Looking for an Entry Level Pool Cue

Hi guys. I'm new to this forum and I need your advice. I'm looking for an entry level cue-one that's reliable, straight & budget friendly (around $65-$100 money is really tight right now).

What do you think of these:

  • Dufferin
  • Fury
  • Players
  • Aska

Any suggestion?

    From experience i will go with the Player. The company has been around for a long time, it is fully guaranteed, and I have one for 2 years that gets a lot of action. And it made in America.

    P.S. The one I have cost me a whopping $79.00.

    Quickshot, what's a good website to check out Players cues?

    Ozone billiards.com is one I deal with a lot.

    I have not bought a new pool cue in a few years, so take this for what it's worth.

    On amazon, this is the top rated queue (and it's priced under $50, comes in something like 6 color choices, and two weights - 19 ounce and 20 ounce)

    I guess the only issue with ordering online is not being able to try it before ordering.

    I guess it boils down to whether you want an all wood cue with a lifetime guarantee made in the USA, or a graphite cue with a one year guarantee that has a promotional name on it and not sure where it was made. You will get what you pay for.

    Yep good point, I didn't take the time to look at the warranty.

    I have a Dufferin that is twenty years old and it has a small warp but it is a great break cue. I have a graphite also. The graphite cue is okay but it does not have the feel of a wooden cue. It took me some time to get used to it.

    I hate changing pool cues...in the long run it's normally for the better, but in the short term, it throws you a little bit off, I find.

    Thanks for the advice, guys! I think I'll be going for one of the Player's cues in ozonebilliards.com. Player's has the best warranty I've seen so far.

    Which one...that's another story!

    Take your pick within your budget. I rec 19 oz. You will be happy with which ever you pick. Remember, prices usually reflect the finish. other than that they are pretty much the same.
