What is the difference between quality in cues? And what should I pay attention to.

Quality difference cues:
Often we are asked what the difference is in the price and quality of cues.
The difference is in the drying of the material and whether a cue has been put together.
The cheaper cues have been artificially dried. There are 2 different drying techniques. Artificial drying and natural drying.
Artificial drying:
The tree is cut down. Then the tree is 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. The wood is then dry but the cells where wood is built up have not been able to shrink enough.
Natural drying:
The tree is cut down. This is then to dry for at least 1 to 2 years. Then beams are sawn. And these are then piled up for another 1 year to dry. Then the beams 8 are serrated. After drying again, it is turned roughly in the form of a cue. After that, a cue is only made. This means that the cells can shrink much more, which means you get more mass in the same material.
Dical or together cues:
A dical cue (sticker) is actually to decorate the cue. Look nice, but the cue is made in one piece.
A composite cue is made up of different types of wood. Making the cue more stable will transmit fewer vibrations. This gives you more rest with playing.


In general, cues are between 470 and 500 grams of 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 want another weight with top end thickness? You can indicate this if you have ordered with the comments (you will find this if you have to enter all your details).

Various pomerans:
Made of cowhide leather or pigskin (layered).
We recommend the layered tip. This because it better holds the chalk. The tip remains better in shape, has good resilience and lasts much longer. The most popular tip in this is the "Da Vinci with 5 layers and the Kamui" pomerans with 8 to 10 layers.
Super soft and soft for Libre. Soft and Medium for three-cushion
