For sweaty palms, which cue wrap style?

The perfect solution was the one I used when I made the Deanp cues

I liked wrapless but hated sticky clamy that goes with them
therefore I used a tongue oil wrap that allowed the smooth slick feel and yet
did not get sticky in humid situations

I had sanded off the finish on sbeaky petes for my personal use in the past

Irish linen is my next choice

Oil rubbed is my favorite too, but current lacquers are nice, given their refinement over the years. Thin, light and really pop the color changes under them

Thanks for the suggestions, I ordered an uncoated Meucci with Irish linen

Sidebar: why would Meucci coat their wrap? Why bother wrapping?

I think for the looks, but it also feels good, some people like the look of linen but the feel of wrapless, cause if coat it, it feels as if you are holding a wrapless cue

Change the wrap afterward and as mentioned, go with Cork.
Cork will resolve most of the issues and it has a unique feel too.

Mine is CORK, by Guido Orlandi... It is marvelous.

I have a cork hoppe and it has always struck me as odd that you don't see more of them.

It really is a great feel and unlike other non linen or leather wraps, doesnt look like something from the thrift shop

No wrap -- oil finish.

I have a travel cue like this and have played with it in Mexico, with high humidity and the doors of the pool room wide open, and it was like glass in my hands.

I dont know what brand name was re-bottled, but years back there was an 'invisible glove' lotion marketed to pool players.

It was an antiperspirant.

Give it a try, might solve your problem without any fuss.

For some reason, I keep reading "antidepressant" were you wrote antiperspirant...maybe an antidepressant will work too.

But thanks for the info.

i've tried antiperspirant on bridge hand before i used a glove. the problem is that when you block one outlet for the sweat with aluminium chloride or whatever it is, it comes out in puddles in other outlets

i would choose linen wrap

I will actually confess to having used this product during my match in NJ with JB.

It worked as advertised.

If you get into any more high stakes games, where the pressure is really making you sweat, I recommend this product. Its great for tense situations.

I have no idea why you'd need that.

Maybe when you play you find a product like that useful but when I play that part of my anatomy is not involved.

Reading this, it sounds like you might need the Fresh Balls product if using a hand antiperspirant before shooting :thumbup:

Wet your palms with rubbing alcohol and let it air dry on your hands. You can carry a small bottle with you in your case.
