Scale to Weigh Pool Cues


Scale to Weigh Pool Cues

We know cue stick weight is a critical element in comfort and how a pool cue plays. Other than a few sticks that have the weight stamped on the butt, how does one know what an unmarked stick weighs? You don't. Especially if the little stick'em label has fallen off.

On Amazon, there's lots of digital 10-dollar postage scales in the 1,000 gram (up to 35 ounces) range, but none with a cradle or hanging loop one could weigh a cue stick on easily.

Does anyone out there know of a cheap yet accurate cue stick specific scale?

    Interesting find: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002SC3LLS/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&smid=A2LMZTWZ81VU4Y

    So for 9-bucks we have a 1000 gram scale that's good to .1 grams.

    Before I buy this, I borrowed a friend's food scale and weighed my stick and all the ones in my pool room. All of them were "off" their stated weights by almost half an ounce!

    I found that interesting and odd. I would have thought the stated weight would be within much closer tolerances!

    BTW, all these cheap digital scales appear to handle ounces or grams - with the tap of a button.

    Cradle to keep the stick from rolling? Fawgettabowdit. A toothpick on either side of the shaft keeps it from rolling and the scale also has a tare weight feature to negate the toothpick factor.

    What's not to like ;-)
