    For your first cue, you are starting without any reference points, and without a keen grasp of a number of subtle issues. Therefore, I suggest that you decide on one (or the others) based on some criterion you choose all by yourself (color, style, price, some minor piece of advertizing trivia,...). None of the cues are so bad as to deter the progression of your game, and none are so good that that cue will make you succeed where one of the others would not.

    After you use a cue for a couple of years, try out several different tips (hardness, kind of leather, {pressed, laminated, plain}, add or subtract weight by using the weight bolt) then, and only then, are you in a position to actually understand the issues involved in choosing a cue. Also, by then, you won't need my advice.

    The best advice I can give is to go to a store that sells these pool cues and perform pool strokes with them and let your hand make the choice. What feels god to the hand is an excellent starting point, and it does not hurt if it also looks good to your eye. Yo may find that your eye and hand disagree as to which cue each likes. Believe the hand and not the eye.

    You definitely want to base your decision on feel, as noted above. All things being equal, I like the Massey line for style.
