Christmas-present: Jump Cue?


Christmas-present: Jump Cue?

So, here's my problem and I really hope you can help:

I asked my fiancee what he would like for Christmas and he said a better pool case or a jump cue.

I don't have any clue about pool, so my question is: does it make sense at all to buy a jump cue for him or does he kinda have to try it first to see what it feels like?

If I get him one, any recommendations? He's not the best player, only started shooting like a year ago.

And for the pool case... What kind of pool case would you recommend? As I said, I don't have any idea how big it has to be and things like that. I know, if he goes out to shoot he always brings 2 cues with him (don't laugh about me, please).

Nina

    Nina, any cue, be it a break, regular or a jump one, is a terribly subjective choice.

    If there's a "pool supplies" store in your area - or a pool hall your fiance frequents - that happens to sell cases and sticks, perhaps a gift certificate would be a better choice? Some of the "on-line" vendors also offer gift certificates too.

    That way, HE can make the choice and regardless of that choice, be a happy camper?

    But if he's already committed to a certain brand, style, color, weight whatever, I agree, the gift under the tree is far more impressive if it's the gift itself, not a 3 x 5" gift card ;-)

    Perhaps an "on-line" vendor might allow a N/C return - should it not be to his liking?

    There are lots cues of various brands are available in the market. It depends upon your purpose and budget. There are a few things you should keep in mind while buying any cue like straightness, feel, weight, grip, brand etc.

    Nina,

    Take Mitch's advice. He's steering you in the right direction.
