Short pool cues for tight spaces – Now you can have a short pool cue with a twist of the wrist!

If  you have ever felt you needed a shorter cue for those tight spots then for sure you will be able to find one somewhere on the internet. However it will not likely feel very good and the chances of being able to play a decent shot with it will be slim. Some players where this is a regular problem have been known to cut a perfectly good cue down in size

just for the purpose. This may enable the player to make the shot but by doing so he will have lost much of the weight and balance of the cue. We do sell cues on our website where the player can remove the butt of the cue but again, though this will do the job, the butt is the heaviest part of the cue so making a good shot with it will be very difficult. If you take your pool seriously you may want to consider one of our `CuePlus` telescopic extendable cues. These cues can be adjusted is seconds and not only do they overcome the problem of tight areas but when you play with the cue in its short length it still retains a good balance and is exactly the same weight no matter what length you choose to play at.  Need a short cue for pool? Look no further.

Telescopic CuePlus 45 pool cue from Blue Moon

Of-course pool players come in all heights and sizes so even if you do not require a cue for tight areas but perhaps just want one that best suits your height these cues could be perfect for you. These cues have many advantages over a traditional cue and another one would be that they can prevent you from overstretching.

These cues are useful for younger players who are still growing but it is important to note that these cues are adult cues and designed for adult play. No more looking for the `short cue`, these cues do it all. Designed and manufactured by Blue Moon Leisure who specialise in these products and supply cue extensions that are seen regularly on the T.V. They are also very affordable and compared with other cues of the same price offer great value for money. And if that wasn’t enough some of the models have adjustable weights so you can adjust the weight as well as the length. They have become so popular we have even designed and launched some American pool cue models as well for our pool playing friends across the pond.


Re-opening cue showroom through Covid-19

Our Showroom is re-0pened by appointment only!

We will be operating a reduced level of appointments to our showroom  for those local customers who want to try some of our cues before they buy.

The showroom has limited space and though we have a very good range of cues we also have a couple of pool tables in the showroom so there is not much room for social distancing. We can therefore only have a couple of people in the showroom at any one time and can only serve one customer at a time. We have over 100 cues in the showroom and with Covid-19 still a threat for our customers sake as well as our own, each one that is picked up needs to be put to one side, cleaned and then preferably left for 48 hours. We only put a reduced number of pool balls on to the table because each ball has to be cleaned off after a visit and the table wiped down.

For these reasons we are also restricting the amount of time for each visit to 30 mins max. We are also asking every customer what cue they are interested in and what budget they have. This is something we normally ask the customer to consider before they visit anyway but in the present climate this is even more important so we can perhaps get a good selection of cues ready for a customer to try when they arrive. This way we hope to restrict the handling of cues to a maximum of 10 cues which in truth should be plenty. In fact as each visit is limited to 30 min’s it is better for the customer to restrict their choice even further so they can have more time testing their preferred cue.

In short, we are trying to accommodate customers but with the minimum of contact. This is not easy when trying a snooker or pool cue and is not like going into a shop and making most other purchases. Customers do like to try several cues when they visit and if you wanted to spend more time in the showroom it might be better to wait a few weeks when perhaps some of the restrictions are lifted.

Businesses have to make their own judgement on how it is possible to trade during these difficult times. Normally I would suggest customers came down to Combe Martin and made a day out of it. Perhaps even do some Kayaking, surfing or visit some local attractions but of-course this is not normal times. If you are in no particular hurry for a cue, you may wish to wait a little longer so that you could do that.

For visitors that do still want to visit we will do our best to make it possible. Visitors should always make an appointment before visiting and it would be helpful for us to know the following;

  1. How many people will want to come into the showroom. We prefer a maximum of 2 at a time at this present time.
  2. We suggest you visit our website and consider any cues in particular that you might like to try.
  3. Will you likely want a case or any extensions? If so we suggest you visit our cue and case deals for discounted deals.
  4. Do you want a snooker cue with 9.5mm tip or pool cue with 8.5mm tip.
  5. Do you want a 1pc, 2pc, or butt jointed cue?
  6. What is your budget? This will give us some idea what direction to point you in to so you get best value for money. You may not spend up to your budget but you will not waste time trying cues that are outside it. Also in these present times you would not be unnecessarily handling cues that are not in that budget.
  7. Remember to bring a face mask.

If all this seems to much hassle, remember we sell our products all over the world and offer an excellent mail order service which is not effected by social distancing at all. If you tell us your preferred spec’ we will do our best to select a cue that fits all your requirements.

I we would always suggest in the first instance that you give us a call on 01271 889147 to discuss and you can be assured we will do our best to sort you out with a really nice cue.

In the last week we have sent orders to customers all over the U.K as well as to customers in Japan, Czech Republic and Latvia so our mail order service is hardly effected and is something you may also want to consider.
