All cues require care and maintenance. Now that you've purchased your very own pool cue, you must want to taking care of it. You will need a case too in oder to carry your newly bought cue.
What all things you do to taking care of your cue, case, tip, shaft etc.

I use a Willard tip shaper in shape of US dime. They make Willard for US nickel radius also but I prefer the dime. I also carry a tip pick to keep the tip porous for chalk. I also carry a microfiber towel to wipe down the ferrule and shaft and butt at the end of each turn and to wipe chalk off the tip when I put the cue and shafts away. I also use joint protectors on shafts and butt. Periodically I use Q WIZ fine papers to keep shafts very smooth and the apply a thin coat of carnauba wax followed by vigorous polishing with another microfiber towel.
