Weight, dimensions, and composition of an American pool cue
Your pool cue follows the aesthetic tradition of American pool: - It weighs 540 g (19 oz) and is 145 cm (57") long. These are the standard dimensions for pool cues. - Its 13 mm diameter tip is suited to the size of American pool balls (57.2 mm) - The cue is made of maple, with a black butt and a smooth finish in the spirit of American pool cues. - Plastic ferrule and steel junction.
A bit of history... and geography... when playing pool.
In addition to being a sturdy wood that absorbs the impact of the ball, maple does not show any ribs on its surface. So your vision isn't disturbed when aiming! Historically, American pool cues have been made of maple. Maple is a very widespread wood in North America. So it is a logical choice for the construction of pool cues.
Easy to transport, effective in play, and even reinforced at the heel: what are the features of your cue
Your pool cue unscrews into 2 parts halfway down the shaft to make it easier to transport. The steel junction provides high-quality tightening and masks the impression that you are playing with a 2-part cue. And with its standard screw thread, you can assemble and disassemble your cue in just a few turns. The heel of the butt (the part that you place on the ground!) is made of rubber: no chance of damaging the cue or the floor when waiting to take your next shot!
A little tip from our billiards team
Pool is a matter of accuracy... and therefore of position. Take your time to find a position where you are both stable and relaxed. And the American pool table is smaller than a snooker table, for example. So feel free to stand up from time to time to see the game. And to find a stable, comfortable stance :)
