Anatomy of a Pool Cue

Learning the anatomy of a pool cue is an important first step as familiarity with the proper lingo and parts of the pool cue will help when watching or reading training materials. As a beginner, a cue might just seem like a stick but there are many critical pieces that collectively create the performance of any particular cue.

Some of these pool cue parts can be changed to repair or improve the performance of your cue. Upgrading the cue tip, cue shaft or changing the pool cue wrap can change the way your cue plays and feels. As mentioned, learning the anatomy of a pool cue is the first step though.
