Pool Tips for Absolute Beginners – Article 1
This is a matter of preference and a very individual thing. I would advise that you begin by using a ‘house cue’ until you get a feel for the game. Once you feel you are progressing visit a sports store and try out their cues. If you are playing with friends have a go of their cues to find out what you like. You can also visit websites and check out what they have to offer. If you find a cue you like it always pays to shop around to get the best deal.
You should also make sure you have a supply of chalk to put on your cue tip. The rule of thumb with this is to chalk up after every shot. This will reduce the likelihood of bad contacts and increase your accuracy in the shots you make. Be consistent now, it will pay off in the long run.
