Cue Case Storage

Cue Case Storage

Hi, I was wondering if it was bad for my new cue stick to be stored in my new case. (lying flat on the ground) ~Since I posted here another quick/dumb question: Should I wipe the chalk from the tip after use?

    I don't think there is anything wrong with leaving your cue in the case. I always have and never had a problem.

    You should always keep the tip well chalked.

    Leaving the cue in the case is de rigor (standard affair) horizontal or not. The case prevents bending forces from doing bad things to the shaft.

    The typical thing to do is to wipe down the cue before storing it in the case. Whether you include the tip or not is up to you.

    The only storage methos that is known bad is to place the cue in a position where the end of the but and the tip of the cue are the only things holding the cue in position (This causes a bending moment that can warp the cue over time. So, when setting up your rack at home, make sure the top holding row is near the joint (or midpoint) of the cue so the shaft is supported on its own.

    Don't store your cue lying flat because gravity will cause it to warp . I have cue cases that stand alone or hang your cue in a plastic sleeve , that way gravity only works on the tip and bumper . Every little bit helps ...
