If you price them fairly, they move pretty quickly.

What I see too often is overpriced cues and folks complaining that the market is terrible.

(Cues, houses, cars, guns, etc.) If priced fairly, they will move pretty quickly.

I don't give a rat's-a^* who the seller is.
It should be a legitimate question but it isn't.
I've sold hundreds of cues, online and locally, and friends have sold dozens of cues for me locally.
Nobody who has ever bought a cue from me has asked the question, and nobody
who has ever asked the question has bought a cue.
When the question comes up the balance of the cue could be perfect in every way,
but it never seems to matter, and I have never seen anybody measure the balance point before they buy a cue.
Some cues that happen to be a little butt heavy play really good, and I get guys
messaging me for months after getting one of my cues telling me how much they like the cue and how it has changed there game.

From the specifications it's going to tell you if the cue is butt heavy, but a number that is a coefficient to nothing will not.
I can't imagine an inch or less one way or the other being a deal killer, and with serious buyers it isn't and never has been.
Players with big strokes looking for front weighted cues typically don't buy cues on
the secondary market unless they know that particular cuemaker and how he does things.
Some of these LD shaft companies are making them lighter and lighter, what does that do to the balance point.
I love selling cues and it takes a lot to get me to stop responding to someone.
In fact, nobody has ever responded when I have answered the balance point
question, so obviously it was just another question these bully types ask to see how far they can push.
I have a lot of experience with it, and the only thing that has changed is I know when it's coming.

As I went along I bought, ordered, and traded for cues, and have an accumulation of
different cues and will be doing it all over again.

Last year was my first year on Facebook and I've had over 400 of the lamest trade
offers you could imagine.
I've also encountered more than my share of bullying, flakes, and lowballers, but I'm
ready to do it all over again.
My local market has actually become healthier so that will be fun to get more involved in.

My biggest problem is picking one cue to play with because I'm at the point where it is affecting my game.

Good luck, you can do it yourself
Thanks for the nice JW cues you sold to me. I love Billy's cues! Some of the best playing cues ever made. My collection is rather small compared to yours, but somehow I've accumulated around fifty cues. Most of them are not "expensive" cues in the thousands of dollars, but are cues that I like for their playability. The majority of my cues would be in the 500-1,000 price range, but I do have several Gina's, Tad's and JW's that are more valuable. Like you, for every cue I sell I seem to acquire two more.

I can't seem to keep more than 4 or 5 at a time because I keep giving mine away. Because I'm stupid like that.

One option is pm or email a description and picture of all the cues and an asking price for the lot. Maybe one dealer will take them all to flip and cut down on all your hassle. Shoot me the above information if you have it.

I would never buy anything sight unseen...however Deanoc has great reputation for how he does things. As for buying from him without seeing could be fun and interesting...and if I wanted something I would buy from him.

who do you think has the best turnover of cues and gives the buyer the best prices ??
pms ok
If you have a good idea about the current market value on your cues, and you have a good quality weight scale, digital caliper, and a decent quality digital camera, then you could sell the cues yourself.

Billiard Bill's is a very nice, and honest seller though, that would probably do a great job at selling your cues for you, at a fair price to the buyers out there.
