me show you how to differentiate between a good billiard cue
a bad billiard cue. Seen any billiards table around, if you do,
place an object ball in the middle of the billiards table and a cue
ball on the headstring. Now use the billiard cue stick you are going
to test and do a straight shot with controlled strength so that when
you hit the object ball with the cue ball, the object ball barely drops
into the pocket. Important note: when you strike the cue ball, remember
the feel and the sound of it. Next place the object ball and cue ball
back to their original position again. Now do another straight shot again,
but with strength of a breaking shot, and remember the feel and sound
What do you get
from the data above after the test? The billiard cue
feel and sound the same. If the billiard cue stick vibrates more
forceful during the more forceful break shot, then it is not a good
sign. If the billiard cue stick gives a ting sound or is different
from the first shot, then there is a flaw with the billiard cue stick.
Why do you get
these different feel and sound? That is a prove that the billiard
cue stick is absorbing part of the power of
the stroke, which is not desirable, a good billiard cue stick should
tranfer almost all the power to the cue ball and not absorb by it.
A proper balance
of the billiard cue stick is important. If the front end of the billiard
cue stick is heavier than the butt, then you may need some weight to
rectify the inbalance.
The number of points
and inlays is also a deciding factor on the price of the billiard
cue stick. The tips of the points should be sharp even when scutinized
closely with your own naked eye. If you ever see a billiard cue stick
with the points that are rounded, you can be sure that the cuemaker
is cutting out the time spent on the points. Hardwood points have to
be deep, they are to stabilize the base wood.
Now let's look
at the designand aesthetics of the billiard cue stick. You should
look at the points, whether are they evenly spread around the billiard
cue stick. Look at the height of the points too, are they the same?
Is the wrap evenly positioned? Are the inlays balanced and symmetrical
to each other? And those rings, are all of them the same size and positioned
at the right place?
Then you should
look at the finishing of the billiard cue stick. Are they gloss enough?
How thick is it?
With the points
I have shown you above, you can be sure to choose the correct billiard
cue stick for yourself.
