When it comes to the weight 22 oz is pretty light for this game but there are some in pool shooting with 15 oz so there are exceptions.

I use a cue for piramid which I bought long ago. It's close to 64" and 24 oz. If in pool the most popular weight might be 19 oz in piramid such is near 24,5 - 25 oz. So as I'm fairly tall I'm thinking to build a new one slightly longer but what is more important a stiffer one. It is just an interesting project for me. The construction of the cues for piramid differs, so as the diameters, the tapers etc.
I started on a 6x12 snooker table.....Iím 6 feet with a 6 ft 3 inch wing span...
...all my cues are 57 inch so I guess Iím too comfortable with it.


Lionize your game.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.
