What to look for when buying a cue
Buying a cue is a considerable purchased one that deserves a lot of thought.
I would suggest trying as many cues as possible from friends etc. Ideally you’d like to try as many at the same time. Try 1 piece and 3/4 as well as different weights etc.
There is no real right or wrong when it comes to cues and everyone will like slightly different specifications.
The standard length of a snooker cue is between 57”-58” and weight anywhere between 17-19oz. Tip size I would not recommend below 9mm and no larger than 10mm.
Some say a 1 piece cue offers more feel than a jointed cue due to the wood running all the way from tip to base but each person will feel different.
What should be considered is the convenience of a 3/4 case over a 1 piece case. Some people don’t mind and therefor you should make your choice on preferred feel of 1 piece or 3/4.
Look out for more tips and advice.
Enjoy your game.
