Challenger 2pc snooker cue, case & extensionsThe jointing of two piece snooker cues has improved greatly since the 1980’s when two piece snooker cues were at their most popular. For a start, the joints are now nearly always made of brass and very occasionally steel, where as there was a time when many of the cues had wooden joints. The wooden joints were lighter but they were obviously not as strong and because wood `moves` with the change of temperature it effected the joints which often became tight. That is not to say the wooden joints `wooden work`, if you pardon the pun. They were cleverly designed and some readers of this might actually still own two piece snooker cues with wooden joints. Like everything design improvements are made when they can be, and now joints are much more secure and are better fits so the player really should not even notice the cue is jointed when playing. The better quality cues will always having `matching grain shafts` when they are jointed. This means the same piece of timber has been used for the whole shaft which is particularly noticeable with ash shafts where the enhanced grain will `match up` either side of the joint.

Good quality ash shaftsMost of our two piece snooker cues have a tip size of between 9.5mm and 10mm, and most of the shafts are made from ash though there is still a small market for Maple. Maple has always been preferred by those playing 9 ball pool, but the shafts are generally thicker. In 9 ball tips go up to 12mm so the maple shafts are more likely to remain straight whereas the thinner shafts used for snooker means ash is the preferred timber used by most cue makers. The straighter grain of the more expensive cues is a sign of a good shaft that will not warp if looked after. Having said this, with the increased use of timbers and the growing popularity of snooker in China, straight grained ash is becoming increasing difficult to come by.
