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.
