With its unique shade of blue interlocked with a more traditional black design, this 57″ centre jointed, two-piece cue could be the perfect beginner cue. It has a Grade ‘A’ North American ash shaft with oak stain and comes with a handy hard case with an interior black lining.
This 18oz cue, complete with an ashwood shaft and walnut butt, comes with a six-inch walnut extension, helping you cover more of the table where required. The brass vacuum copper joint gives it a pristine finish, making this cue stylish yet extremely functional.
This cue is at the upper end of the price scale, but it comes with excellent reviews from existing users. It has a shaft made from dried North American Ash and, with a leather cue bag/sleeve included; this is an extremely good value for money option.
It may be the cheapest on the list, but don’t let that detract from the quality finish this beginner cue provides. It is a 57” ash cue with a hardwood butt, but the tip is easy to shape and the weight is perfect for someone starting out in the sport.
This versatile cue is suitable for both snooker and pool and is endorsed by three-time World Snooker Champions Selby. The cue weight ranges from 18oz-20oz, allowing players to purchase a more bespoke option depending on their preference, and has a rubber butt protector to prevent it from getting easily damaged.
