Want to buy a billiard cue, pool cue or snooker cue?
What is the difference between quality in billiard cues? And what should I pay attention to.
Quality difference cues:
It is often asked what the difference is in price and quality of billiard cues.
The difference is in the drying of the material and whether a cue is composed.
The cheaper billiard cues are artificially dried. There are 2 different drying techniques. Artificial drying and natural drying.
The tree is cut down. The tree is then sawn into beams. Then these beams (5 x 5 cm) go into a drying oven until the wood is dry. Then a cue is made of it. The wood may be dry, but the cells where wood is built up have not been able to shrink enough.
The tree is cut down. This is then left to dry for at least 1 to 2 years. Then beams are sawn from it. And these are then piled up for another 1 year to dry. Then the beams are sawn 8-sided. After drying once more, it is coarsely twisted into the shape of a cue. Only then is a billiard cue made of it. This means that the cells can shrink much more, so that you get more mass in the same material.
Dical or compound cue:
A dical cue (decal) is actually to embellish the billiard cue. Look nice, but the cue is made in one piece.
A composite cue is made up of different types of wood. This makes the cue more stable and will transmit less vibrations. This gives you more peace of mind when playing.
Weight: Carom cues
In general, cues between 470 and 500 grams are Libre cues. These therefore have a top end thickness of 11 mm. Cues above 500 grams are three-cushion cues. with a top end thickness of 12 mm. Do you now want a different weight with shaft thickness. You can indicate this when you order in the comments (you will find this if you have to fill in all your details).
Weight Pool cues:
Pool cues are always quoted in Ounces (OZ). Often the cues start at 18 oz to 22 oz. 1 Ounce is 30 grams. Most people sit with pool cues somewhere between 19 and 21 oz. The weight of a pool cue is very personal and can generally be adjusted later. Actually, all pool cues are equipped with a 13 mm tip diameter. The Predator brand is one of the few that does offer other diameters.
Made of cowhide or pigskin (layered).
We recommend the layered tip. This is because it holds the chalk better. The pomeran also stays in better shape, has good resilience and lasts much longer. The most sold tip here is the “Da Vinci with 5 layers and the Kamui” tip with 8 to 10 layers.
Super soft and soft for Libre. Soft and Medium for three-cushion
