Pool Cue Joint Types

There are many different type of joints available today, if we will go in details on let's say aluminum vs brass I would have to type a whole bunch of words that will put you to sleep, so here is the overview of the types of joint:

  • Wood to wood joint - gives you the greatest cue ball control, softer shot - this is as close to the one piece cue as you can get with two piece stick. Recommended for those who uses English or at least know what I am talking about when I say English.
  • Wood to metal pool cue joint - gives you average cue ball control, average shot. This is a nice combination which will deliver a punishing hit when needed and your cue ball will be obedient enough (providing you know how to work it)
  • Metal to metal pool cue joint - gives you little cue ball control, maximum force of shot. This will be good if you really like to set all the balls on the table flying. Good for breaking and jump shots. But if you have to have a separate cue for your jump shots or your breaks, you already know everything in this article.

There are whole bunch of different thread systems on the market as well, in my opinion, it's just a design option which has no practical impact on your game.
