I am unsure if I should purchase a cheaper say $100 cue, a $500 cue or a $1000 cue. I know skill level will be most important but should I go ahead and get my long term cue now and grow with it? Should I buy a used standard cue off of here and then have a cue maker make me a snooker shaft? Any input appreciated.
I've owned my fair share of pool and snooker cues over the past 20 years. I've had snooker cues that I could play pool with, but I've never come across a pool cue that was good for snooker. Even with a z shafts or ob2, feel is non existent, almost "clumbsy" like trying to fillet a fish with a wood axe.
