My first post - so a brief background. I joned a local pool league (APA) back in March and finished the Spring league a few weeks ago. Had a great time and have learned a bunch - I'm rated at SL 2 and am probably just at the verge of going to a 3 - need to improve my consistency.
Had always just been a slop shooter and bar player - and really enjoy the whole strategy part of pool league.
Now for the question - I've got a modest priced cue I use for playing ( about ~$100) and am considering getting a modest priced break cue. I'm tired of either whacking the ball with my playing cue or hunting down a house stick.
Any general rules for the qualities of a jump/break cue - any reccomendations for a cue in my price range (about$100) ?
I assumed I wanted a heavy cue (at least 21 oz) -- but somewhere on the web I read it should be lighter -- hmmmm I'm confused
