Pool Cues, Accessories, and Cases for the Perfect Game
If you're like most people, you may not know the difference between pool and billiards. I'll give you a cue - I mean clue! Billiards is the overall term for games of skill in which players use a stick to hit balls on a felt-covered table. Pool is one type of billiard sport. As you may know, pool is played on a table with six pockets. Eight ball is the most popular of several different games you can play on a pool table.
Pool is not an equipment-heavy game, but it does require certain accessories. Chalk helps the cue glide through your hands, dries your hands, and makes it so you can get spin on your ball. That's right, chalk goes on your cue stick, on your hands, and on the tip of your stick. A chalk holder will keep your chalk handy and keep it from making a mess. Speaking of tips, tips can wear down or come loose, so you need replacements.
Billiard gloves, which have a thumb and two fingers, reduce the friction between the pool cue and your hand. With a glove the pool cue shaft can slide easier through your bridge hand, giving you a more consistent and accurate stroke.
What your pool cue needs most is a pool case to protect it. Some cases hold one cue, some hold several, and others hold two shafts for each cue. Rolling cue cases are easy to carry. The Fury case is a soft gel cue case. The JB case is a handsome, hand-tooled case. Sterling cases are the best quality for the money. Sterling has traditional and modern designs in economical lightweight cases and sturdy hard cases.
Whether you are a novice pool play or a pro, you can find quality pool cues, cases, and accessories as reduced prices from online retailers.
