Which PX cue should I choose?

Perfect for both home enthusiasts and thriving billiard venues such as pubs and clubs, one way to choose, is a variety of cues based on your budget —

  • Cue prices range from $75 to $140
  • These cues are all handmade and good value
  • The PX4 is a short 48″ which is ideal for kids or tight spaces

*The PX5 also comes in an optional shorter 54″ and 57″ standard length

Keep in mind in any home or venue, it is a good idea to have a variety of cues to suit player heights and personal preferences, smaller tip sizes are better for spin but harder to control, and some people prefer heavier or lighter cues.

What Type of Cue Should I Buy?


Palko PX5 Cue 4

The amount you should invest when buying a cue depends on your budget, skill level, and personal preferences, but a good starting point for a decent-quality cue is typically around $100 to $300. It is also important to consider what kind of cue you would like to play with, as tip size, cue length and weight vary.

Wooden cues are made of various types of wood that are spliced together, providing a traditional feel and a natural, smooth hit. Graphite cues, on the other hand, are constructed with a graphite composite shaft, offering a more durable option with less susceptibility to warping.

Which is better? It really depends on each individual player’s preference.

Traditionally, a smaller tip, around 10mm, is preferred by Snooker players and allows for more precision and control of the ball, but it is also trickier to use. Larger tips, around 13mm, are generally preferred by Pool players and provide more power and stability.

What tip is best for you? It really depends on your preference, however, if you’re not sure, a simple rule is if you prefer Pool, choose a larger tip, and if you prefer Snooker, choose a smaller cue tip.

Heavier cues tend to deliver more power, making them suitable for players who prefer a stronger stroke. However, lighter cues can offer greater control and maneuverability, allowing for finesse in shots. That said, it really depends on the individual player to determine a comfortable weight to use. Some Cues have adjustable weights in the handle like the Grafex Cues and some cues have weighted extensions, like many of the 3/4 jointed cues, to handle different shots and personal preferences.

Most cues come in standard lengths, with 57-58 inches being the typical range. For most players, a standard-length cue is suitable.

If you are particularly short or want some cues for your kids the Grafex Neon Junior is a good choice at just 52″ in length.

If you are particularly tall, many 3/4 jointed cues come with extensions for different weighting and hard-to-reach shots and could be added to help, but generally, a standard 58″ cue will be suitable for tall people.
