Custom Cue Maker
Handcrafted cues made by Andrew in Salem, Oregon
"I make a playing cue, not an art cue"
At Anglin Cue's, we offer entry level custom cues and shafts. Everything we make is engineered for whole cue balance and playability. We stand behind our cues and know that a good cue makes for a more consistent player.
Serious beginner players should invest in a playing cue and a break cue to start off with. You should never use your playing cue to break with because it will compact the tip and make it hard or even cause it to pop off. A custom break cue, like your playing cue will give you consistency.
TIP: try other peoples break cues and see what you do and don't like about them.
Our custom cues are made with radial pins. These pins draw the two pieces of wood together and there is not a metal connection to disrupt the transfer of energy. You will be able to feel everything about your shot and the energy will travel more consistently through that wood-on-wood connection.
We prefer not to drill out our butts for weight-bolt systems. The all wood butts made with natural wood will allow for a better overall balance of the cue. This will feel better in your hand and transfer energy effectively through the whole cue. Mass cue manufacturers add weight-bolt systems that can be adjusted but this only adds weight to the butt of the cue, and that distributes the total weight of the cue towards the back, therefor it can feel unbalanced. Sometimes when you drop a cue that has a weightbold system in it, the weights can come loose and then you will hear and feel it rattling around in the butt end of the cue.
TIP: Custom cues are much more appreciated because you bought something made just for you.
Beginning pool player should use the same cue as much as they can. It creates consistency with your shot.
Consider the variables to playing pool:
angle of shot
materials wood/carbon fiber
You must create consistency with your stroke to build muscle memory. To do this well, you need to limit the number of those variables at a time and work on each one individually till you are proficient. Taking the time to learn that will help you play a better game in the long run.
I learned to shoot consistently on one cue then I was able to take any house cue and within 20 shots be able to adapt my game. It was not as proficient as with my own cue, but still good enough to win.
TIP: Your cue is a tool. It is an extension of your body and you should invest in yourself to be proficient.
