What is a billiard cue made of:

The most common wood for the upper part is Maple. But nowadays we are also seeing more and more carbon. The lower part of the cue can be made of several tropical woods.

The length of a billiard cue in about 140 cm, its weight varies from 470 to 530 grams. The most choice consists of two parts, which can be screwed together. The screw thread is often made of wood, but a metal type such as brass also occurs but is actually from early. There are also cues that have titanium closures. These are often called uni-loc or VP2 closure

A lighter cue is recommended for playing libre than for three cushion. We often see that libre players are somewhere between 470 and 500 grams and three-cushion players from 500 to 530.

Of course there are exceptions. Everyone has their own preferences.

The upper part of the shaft of a cue consists of a bone which nowadays consists of plastic. In the past, ivory was used for this, but that is no longer allowed and not possible.

The very tip is a small piece of leather, which is called the tip of the tip. The tip has an average thickness of 3-5 mm, and has a spherical appearance. By means of glue (this can be special glue) the tip must be firmly fixed in place, the tip must not move.

In the past, there were only a few brands of bitters. Nowadays there are many and in very many different sports and hardnesses.
