A beginner player will not buy the same pool cue as a more experienced player, without a doubt the second ones will have the need to make a much greater investment since at a higher level of play, the smallest detail can become a decisive factor in the game, something that I don't think is so important if you are enjoying this sport for pure hobby or for spending time with colleagues.

Something to take into account is the budget you have, this will mark the possibilities within the models to choose. It is also true that, sometimes, it is more worth making an initial investment in a higher priced cue, but who can get more out of the long term as your skills improve.

If you are a beginner, a 100-euro pool cue can fit your needs. If you have been playing for some time and you are looking for a better pool cue, there are several options to consider.
