That's an arbitrary way of measuring someone's span in their stance. We should be focusing on finding a way to measure someone's stance span and then we can discuss cue length relative to that.

This is seriously one of the funniest things I've read in a while!

It's not a way of measuring someone's span in their stance; it's just a way of saying that it's related to height.

I suppose we could estimate spans from pics of players in their stance by estimating their bridge length and the length of butt behind their grip (if we know the length of their cue).

Watch Tyler Styer....on his back stroke he has the longest extended stroke arm I've ever seen. I guess he has long arms, large wing span. I wouldn't be surprised to discover that he plays with an extended cue. Maybe not, but that back stroke is way back behind him, so far that it's amazing the tip doesn't slip out of his bridge hand.

But if you're going to talk about what the best cue length for a player should be, then you should find a way to measure them in their stance. Torso length could be a factor too. You guys claim to be scientific yet you succumb to such an arbitrary way of measuring players. You're creative. Come up with something. Figure it out. Challenge yourself.

It's just a little speculation about how cue length might be logically related to a players' height. I haven't heard anybody claim it's a way to "measure" players.

I'll get right on that.

For me, that is 58".
I remember that being the same for buying a hockey stick
