need help cue shopping

need help cue shopping

I am an amateur who absolutely LOVES the game. I am looking to buy a cue but I have run into a few problems. First, I am a college student at the University of Arizona so I don't have a lot of money. More importantly, I don't really know what I should be looking for in cues(whats a good wood, types of cue tips, etc). I would love some help and some tips that will help me shop for a cue smartly.

    With limited funds I would look for a used Cue stick that is straight, (not warped) in a price range you can afford. It would be nice if you found a used Cue that has two shafts so you can try different types of tips. You can find sticks on line for $100 or less. A Sneaky Pete Cue is the first thing that comes to mind. Talk to the old guys if you can find any and you might be surprised with the amount of information they have to share free of charge. Just don't get in their ear if they are engaged in a money game even if it's for small change. Ask if they mind if you watch and after they warm up to you ask questions but be prepared to listen rather then waiting to talk. Best Regards.

    well it all depends on how far along are on your game? i mean for a beginner, i wood recomend sticks that ranges from $100 to $200, there are a lot of cue makers out there that is pretty decent and within this price range, dale perry is pretty good, about the wood, it doesnt really matter which one as long as you like it, about the tip, there are 3 common types, hard (good for breaking) semi hard(good for everyday use) soft (good for putting spin on the cue. hope this helps, goodluck...
