Hi guys. I play pool in a league and am always looking for a corner to rest my cue when I am breaking. When no corner is available, leaning it against the wall is the other option but not very secure. Does anyone have any suggestions on portable cue holders for league night?
Thanks for your help!

I have several holders. I like different holders for different reasons. Unfortunately, I do not have the web addresses for them.

I know that Frank's Center Inc, has several. You can find their advertisement in most of the billiard magazines. I have their mini cue caddy, because it is small and fits in my bag nicely. They also carry the gripper, that Nick showed you, as well as another large holder.

I know Tiger products also has a very nice holder. I have one similar to Tiger's, but mine is a little smaller and it is made of leather instead of metal.

There are plenty of different cue holders on the market and all you have to do is search some of the internet dealers and you will find them. However, all the holders I have seen require a table edge or a chair arm to use them. If you only have armless bar stools or a wall to deal with, you are going to have some trouble finding a holder.

This one from Frank's Center:

Cue Hold-Up (http://www.azbilliards.com/richcard/gizmos3.html)

It's the same as the Q-Claw (http://www.insidepool.com/order/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=order+product_ info.php+products_id+2282&amp;osCsid=ab7c5750219f2506e ede5289f4ce45e9), but a little smaller. It fits comfortably in the small pouch of most/all cue cases. The Q-Claw is tight on some.

I had one, but left it at a bar a few weeks back after league night. My friend had broke my cue down and put it in my case. I didnt even think about it. Never went back, just hope its there when I return. No big deal if it isnt.

This one takes up more room in the case but holds the cue more securely in deeper recesses. I cut one off to hold only two cues and to save space in the cue case.

My experience has been that the leather ones with the suction cup is worthless. I've never see a suction cup that will stay in place.

I like the small one from Franks Center but the recesses are not real deep.

The best way to hold the cue that I've been able to figure out is a case that takes the cue butt down and then clamp the standing case to a table or chair.

I too hate to lean my cues against the wall or tables. I am addicted now to both cues and accessories (I only have four cues, but it is still an addiction). The pool hall I play in 3 leagues and a tournament has shelves all around with a decorative moulding, so the edge is not flat. The Porper holder has to have a shim to work there and the Tiger only works on a completely flat surface. I am thinking of trying the Q-Clip, as that may be more flexible in that situation. I also have the Case Clamp, but trying to find a space for the whole case is difficult and gets in other player's ways. It also is harder to pull the cues out for use. Anyone try the Q-Clip?

Actually I have all the ones mentioned in the previous posts and the Q-clip is
the most secure and versatile IMO.

I think I might try it. Does the Seyberts logo come off?

Yes it comes off... I took mine off and put my name on with a Dymo-Label /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Thanks. I think I will just paint it black (dj hears a song in there somewhere).
