    So, is this good or bad? For the life of me, I can never remember which is best, boiled or raw?
    The bitter taste of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

      lol - there are two sides to the argument - personally I prefer raw but in truth I have never noticed a difference when they are thinned down.

        MW oil for me.
        playing with a rack cue from club. Tok the varnish off with Sum Wire Wool 0000 Ultra fine. finished it with MW Oil . Great result.

          Since I use maple snooker cue, I don't usually apply anything to it. Not really needed. However, I did occasionally use some products which are meant for 9ball cues. Some would say that it is just mass produced very cheap stuff, but it does get the job done.

            Trevor White said you don't need oil , just clean the cue ........That was good enough for me , chucked the Aurora oil and all the others in the bin .........It's hard enough working out what tip to use let alone mucking around with different oils
            Still trying to pot as many balls as i can !

              You must know that I have to ask- thinned down with what?

              Thanks Andrew

                  I have a spray bottle of O'Cedar furniture oil that i use occasionally.
                  Works fine. Squirt it on, light wipe over, leave for a few mins then buff firmly. Lovely glossy finish that's not grabby. Smells nice too

                      at least when you using your oiled cue at the table you will have the benefit of "...a calming effect on the body and aid feelings of peace and happiness."
