When you’re playing pool, one of the most important decisions to make is what pool cue to use. A heavier cue is more likely to cause error. Its weight can cause a sloppily executed spin stroke or sidespin stroke. A lighter cue generally allows for a more natural, precise stroke. The less weight on a cue, the less resistance created when striking. This reduces errors because force equals mass multiplied by speed, which means that a lighter cue can move faster than a heavier cue to create a powerful stroke. A beginner player should start with a 20-ounce cue while learning. After a while, however, that player should switch to a 19-ounce cue.
