  • Newbie Arrival! Hello

    Hello people, I’m Steve!

    After weeks of trying to join the forum I’ve finally arrived! Big Thanks to ADR and Dean the mod for making it all happen!

    I look forward to completely boring everyone with endless photos of my new snooker ‘shed’ project and the Riley Aristocrat I am currently refurbishing... lovely! Watch out GL I will no doubt be picking brains on the do’s and don’t s.

    Cheers!
    Steve

              I have a Craftsman 3/4 ash cue, not sure on the weight probably around 18oz, it’s quite light. It was my first ‘proper’ cue bought when I was about 16ish?? Now 39 so I’ve owned it for some time... I have however recently been looking at possibly commissioning a Jason Owen 1 piece cue maybe something slightly heavier to get a bit more power into those screw shots. I love the look of that rainbow splicing on the cue on his website home page, and have had a quote back which I thought was very reasonable! So once I’m setup with the table I’ll definitely get one on order in ASAP!

                  you don't need a heavier cue for "power shot screws" all you need to to is to let the cue go through the cue ball as much as you can and you will get the screw distance you are looking for
                  Dont put "power" into the shot, don't play from the shoulder as some say; let the cue do the work if you let it

                  I used to have issues with poor screw shots, but then I changed my way of playing it; I get good distance now and it is probably the "lightest" shot I play, where I gently hold the cue and make sure I am as level a cue as possible, and let it go through the cue ball as much as possible

                      ah ha - you have the sickness, (sadly slowly shakes head looking downcast)
                      cueitis, noun verb - /kju.aɪ.təs/
                      the need to purchase cues, no-known cure. Can cost a future, for the cues themselves and the resulting divorce.

                      Happy note - you are in the right place

                        I did notice when I last used the cue that the last foot or so at the tip end had curved slightly! Yes! That’s it... I must have a new cue because mine is bent!

                          or did you notice that it seems to become smaller down to the tip?
                          yep you need a new cue

                          how much does Jason charge now for a cue?
