  • First Personal Cue

    Hi all. Iím thinking of getting my first personal cue as Iíve redeveloped an interest in snooker recently.

    Iíve read so many of the threads here regarding what brands of cues to go for and Iím simply at a loss, hoping the experts here may guide me.

    Iím from Singapore and unfortunately thereís not a lot of snooker shops around here, only one I know of carries only Riley & BCE (which Iíve been told to stay away from). Thereís also a few sellers here with Peradon cue available but Iíve also seen a few pretty bad feedback on them so far for their lower range models. This has resulted in me looking outside of my tiny island.

    To keep things simple, Iím not looking to splurge on my first cue, probably looking at £125 or less will be comfortable for me (not sure if this is realistic, donít mind used as well). Am I able to get something customized at this price range?

    A few brands & cuemakers that caught my attention in this forum as below.
    Oímin: Unfortunately Iíve read that thereís too many China ripoffs for this brand, gonna be tough for me to identify one at this stage.
    Maximus: Seems out of my budget but maybe a used one?
    LP: Low end range does not seem to have good feedback but higher range seems out of my budget so maybe a used one?
    Phoenix: Seems out of my budget but maybe a used one?
    Mark Richard: Seems to be pretty decent and well within budget but mixed reviews.

    J6: Not sure what kind of price to expect.
    ADR147: Have dropped him an email and will further the conversation, not sure if my price range is feasible though.

    Iíve also read about length & weight of cues but not too sure whatís good for me. Iím 172cm tall, 61kg.

    Any advice will really be greatly appreciated

    Cheers!
