Depends on the game, 18.9 to 19.0 for pool. 16 to 16.5

A few posters have specified the weight of their cue to the nearest 1/10 of an ounce (by using a decimal point), rather than a whole number or a fraction such as 1/2 or 1/4 ounce. Can anyone really feel the difference in a tenth? Has anyone ever gone to a cuemaker and asked him to add or subtract a tenth of an ounce from their cue? Whats the tightest weight specification a custom cue maker will typically work to?

Josey(playing Cue) 19.4
Dave Bollman(Break Cue) 19
This seems rather silly, since this is all personal tastes, but what the hey...
Joss 20 oz., although any well balanced, not butt heavy, cue 18.5 - 21.0 would be fine for me.
Tom, on my own cue I would easily feel 1/4 oz difference.
With my present cue I made 4 weight screws years
ago. They only vary in length by 2 threads or less.
I played with each one for at least a week to see how
the cue felt every day. I went from to heavy and worked
my way down to a little light, and then just right.
I did this because of body chemistry and it's change
from day to day. If a cue is a little heavy, some days it
may feel like a wagon tongue to me. I like as i'm sure we
all do is a cue that feels near the same everytime we play.
Although no reply from the cuemakers, I'm sure they can
get to the 1/10 oz if requested.

Is Bollman building cues now? I played him a few times, I think once at your dads room. He can be a real tough player, does he still play?
