Cue sticks have protective coating that needs to be sanded off
October 29, 2012
I noticed someone said the cue sticks were medium quality. I got mine and noticed they didn't sound right when hitting the ball, then looking at the tips noticed they have a shiny coating which is why they hit the ball with a strange sound. I sanded the tips with sandpaper and it works much better. I did find the bumpers a little hard but have no experience with bumper pool, is that normal? The tables are very nice looking and the price is the best I could find anywhere. Also, the cues are two piece so I plan to store mine in the table when not being used.
