Beginners Guide To Pool Cues

Beginners don’t need to start out with fancy cues and spend hundreds of dollars just to make statement. What a beginning pool player should be looking for is a basic cue with a firm hit. A firm hitting cue will be the most forgiving and the easiest way to learn pool. Generally these type of cues won’t run any more than $150. A great beginners cue is the Action Blue Model 68, a quality cue at a price that a beginner can start with.

If your looking for a cue that will have a bit more protection from warping and dents look for a cue with a fiberglass shell such as Cuetec or Scorpion cues. A fiberglass shell is going to really help with warping if you know you might tend to leave your cue places it shouldn’t be like outside or in the trunk of your car. If you need any more help deciding on a cue we suggest that you call the experts at Billiards.com and they would be happy to help you pick out your first pool cue.

Finishing A Game Room

Creating a game room or just redecorating one is no easy task. Don’t forget the importance of decorating and assembling the game room. The most essential factor is to make a game worthy environment. Nobody is going to want to play games in a room that isn’t inviting or non functional. The atmosphere shouldn’t be too stuffy you want a place where friends and family can have fun and relax. The room should reflect what kind of games you want to be played. Here of course were focusing on the pool table being the focus of the room.

Choosing the right pool table depends on what you want and the design that is already in your home. Don’t forget our tips on where to buy pool table online.

The accessories and details are something decorators always seem to forget. It’s the small details that really make the room work. For example in a billiards or rec room that is going to have a pool table there needs to be a place to store the cues, billiards balls, and racks for the table. Also if you are going to be hosting more than a few people in the room it’s a good idea to purchase either some low sitting portable chairs or bar stools for spectators. Low hanging lights is always essential to a good game room. Not only is it necessary for players to see the table well it also gives the room great ambiance.

Adding some extra games like ping pong top to the pool table or a dart board are great ways to incorporate other games using the same space you already have for the pool table. We suggest heading over to darts.com of course for all your darting needs like discount dartboards and darts.

If you’re starting from scratch it’s best to try and buy pieces for the game room that cohesively match together. This can include the pool table, side table and chairs, cue racks, and lighting. I would suggest using a store where you can buy all those items together so you know that they will have the same stains and match together. PoolTables.com is the best place online to buy all these necessities for your next game room. We picked them because of their selection; price, quality and you can’t beat their shipping and installation fees.
