New tip for pool cue

Post by Big Boy » Wed Feb 26, 2014 8:51 am

My son has been asked to play in the local pool league. As a result, he has dug out my old cue (must be 30 years old) which I used to play with in the Plymouth leagues many years ago. The cue is like new, but needs a new tip. Can anybody tell me where to buy a new tip please?

If you don't get any positive response elsewhere, you could try Bobby's Bar on 102.

Hi 2nd floor market village there is a sport store there. They sell cues and accessories, or they did about a year ago. Should find one there

I know the shop you mean, but it isn't there any more. However, I knew it had moved to Market Town. I'd never considered the shop for such an item, but I went along yesterday, and they had plenty to choose from - 29 Baht for 2.

My son's girlfriend went there for him also, not knowing that I'd already bought the tips. Yes they did them at 2 for 30 Baht (so about the same cost). Of course, being a girl doing a man's job, she bought the wrong size :D

The cue was used in competition for the first time in over 20 years last night. My son had his butt kicked :D.

Is he playing pool or billiards?....and while I'm at it, there isn't any difference in the cues, is there?

He's playing pool.

I think traditionally pool cues are much thicker at the business end, but I always found you got better control with a thinner snooker style cue, which is what my son is now using ............. badly.

Waking up an old thread. Does anyone know if Master Cues has closed, or moved? I used to get my cue re-tipped there. The girl did an excellent job. I need a new tip quickly!
