Pool cue sets benefits and features
Some of the best pool cue sets offer different cues so that users can experiment different playing styles. Some manufacturers offer different shafts. A typical set would include: one or multiple shafts (made from maple wood) with one or more leather tips, butt (usually made from hard wood), a steel collar, one or multiple chalks, one tip tool pick and a set of gloves.
Multiple shafts can work for multiple uses like breaks or Sneaky Pete. But for the best results it is recommended to use separate cues for each type of situation. When it comes to the disadvantages of the pool cue sets you need to take transport methods into consideration. The best way to protect the cues is by getting a case which often times needs to be bought separately. Even an entry-level soft case is better than nothing. Most manufacturers recommend you keep the cues in a straight position which can only be guaranteed with a hard case.
When to choose a pool cue set over a single cue?
Many new players can struggle with this decision. The best plan is to recognize what your personal needs are. If you have no pool equipment, you could benefit from getting a starter`s kit which would include everything a new player needs, from a velvet wipe to chalk.
Buying a single cue implies a dedicated approach to billiard. In this stage the player should generally know what cue features to look for and is concentrated in finding that particular product which will satisfy a personal style. Single cues can be specialized cues or general cues, but both serve a clearer purpose then a cue set.
If you`re starting out with billiard or are thinking about opening a pool business, then you could benefit from buying a complete pool and stand set. Often times they come with a set of billiard balls and are a good way of organizing all the accessories. Price-wise although you would make a bigger upfront investment it would prove to be cheaper on the long-term. These types of sets can also be beneficial to home users which are thinking about building a pool room as they would have all the convenience of buying the necessary equipment in one single purchase.
If you are thinking about buying a pool cue set you need to know that this upfront investment should also cover your future needs. If you buy a single cue the decision might be more straight-forward but in the end having the convenience of getting everything with a single purchase might help new players get into billiard and not make things more complicated then they need to be.
