Suggested Guidelines for Pool Cues

Suggested Guidelines for Pool Cues

Here are some suggested guidelines for a pool cue

  • 12.5 to 13mm tips are preferred by most pool players.
  • Most pool players prefer the hard Le Pro tips. These tips tend to hold their shape longer when playing with heavier balls.
  • The preferred shaft stock is hard rock maple. These maple shafts play smoother allowing the shaft to slip through the fingers with little resistance.
  • Advanced players prefer the semi to pro-tapered shafts. These shafts do not have the "V-ing" action found in snooker cues.
  • One-inch ferrules are preferred due to the fact that they look better & usually don't have the chalk marks on the shafts as found on shafts with smaller ferrules.
  • 18 to 21 ounces are the normal weight for pool cues.

These are just a few characteristics to get you started in picking out a pool cue.
