Proper cue length a player’s height

Posted 03-13-2010 at 12:06 PM by twal

Does anyone know the recommended cue length as it compares to a players height?
I know in some perspective that the length of your arms matter as well.
My issue is that I am 6 foot, ˝ inches tall (not really tall).
My cue length is 58 inches (29” butt & 29” shaft).
I noticed that my teammates who are 5’ 8” to 5’ 10” don’t have the same issues I have.
A lot of times I find back hand between the wrap and the end of the butt. There are also a few times that I am almost at the end. Needless to say I think my stick is too short for me.
This puts me in the market for at least a new 30” shaft to address this issue.
What if I need a 30” butt and a 30” shaft?
I don’t want to waste any money, times being what they are

Does anyone have any reliable information on this subject?

    I am the same height and have the exact same issue. My solution was to use a wrapless cue, which I am comfortable with. This way I'm not distracted by gripping half on the wrap and half on the butt. I realize that not everyone likes a wrapless but, this works for me. I have one cue that is 1" longer (29.5" & 29.5") and I grip it right at the end of the wrap. Trouble is, I don't really like the way the cue hits. Wanna buy it? lol
