Cue Weight

Cue Weight

I've noticed that many cues come in a variety of different weights. As a newbie, how do I decide what weight to get? How does the weight affect the play of the cue?

    I don't know if I can name names but some Cues have interchangeable weights. Right now my best stick weighs 17.75 ounces while 18-21 are more the norm and because I have a small wing span I have 2 custom shafts 27 inches long 2 28 inch shafts and 4 29 inch shafts. The standard is 29". My shaft sizes range from 11.75 mm to a 17 and 18 mm custom shafts but 12.50 is my favoret. I also have a three piece break jump break Cue at 21 ounces. Some taller players have 32" shafts but you can get them custom made longer yet. So here is my thinking, I want to put the hit on the ball rather then worry that I have to soft stroke a heavy Cue and over hit the Cue Ball or the shot shape. For breaking I want power without changing my stroke and that's where I use 21 ounces. Most players I know go with 19 ounces while I have always favored lighter Cues. I think it also depends on the game you play. If it's Snooker then you will need advice from a Snooker player as I shoot Billiards or Straight Pool only. Well I do shoot some 9 ball and some 8 ball but I't not my cup of Tea. PM me if you need any help. Comments Welcome!
