I have misplaced my cue, which gives me a good opportunity to buy myself a christmas present!, however I am not familiar with what constitutes a good cue and so am seeking some guidance.
I'd had the cue over a decade, i considered it a decent cue, it had cost about £90, was a 3 piece and was unbranded. I didn't really like the feel of the cue going through my table hand due to the way it was coated.
I play both pool and snooker, but i will predominantly use the cue for snooker. I'm not great at snooker! (max break is mid 20s, average in the 10s!) But am better at pool!
I once used a friends Parris cue and loved it, because it felt well balanced, was a good weight (dont know what weight) and felt good sliding on my hand. Unfortunately they are slightly out of my budget! My budget is £130 max.
My gut feel is that I would like a lighter cue as i think it gives more of a 'feel' for playing a shot (i've noticed this when using pub sticks).
Regarding configurations, this is not something i've come across before, so not sure of the benefits of one over the other?
All advice appreciated!
