Action Pool Cue Cases Information on Making a Billiard Tail

TYPES OF TAILS- Action Pool Cue Cases

The tails are by far, with snooker tails, the most important product group of the retail sector both in terms of sales and in terms of sales generation for other products related to pool cues and cases . Only high-quality ash and maple wood are used for the production of arrows, and 30% of these are rejected to ensure optimum quality. The wood used is wood kiln dried and then treated to achieve the desired condition and at a uniform moisture level. This is a very important step that minimizes the curtain. The average size of a snooker tail is 140 cm, with a glued 8 mm process, and a brass junction.

Wood for arrows:

Ash is quite tender with a well-defined grain. It is a characteristic that gives it a ripe and old wood look. Ramin is a medium quality wood used primarily for the manufacture of simple ordinary tails.


The casks are normally made from the highest quality wood: mainly rosewood, ebony, ash or rosewood.

It is quite often “flamed”, that is to say that during the manufacturing process is superimposed sheets of wood of different colors, in essences often rare (and therefore expensive) to give it an original aesthetic appearance.

The pool cues and cases are either cut to 1/2 or monobloc (although a certain mode that nothing justifies tends to favor tails 3/4). More and more we add, during the manufacture, a brass junction female at the base of the tail, which allows to fix a short extension (30 cm) to execute long shots (when the white ball is located at a significant distance from the edge of the table!).

Accessible to all, billiards, activity that goes through the decades without getting a ride, knows more and more followers. To shine and amaze your opponents, here are some tips that will be very useful!

A little lexicon before you start: a pool cues and cases has 3 parts. It consists of a barrel (which constitutes the “handle” or “handle”, it is the widest part) and an arrow (the finest half of the tail). The extreme end of the arrow is called the process . It is he who hits the ball, also called ball.

How to position your body?

Before hitting the ball, make sure you have the most comfortable position possible. By correctly placing your body in space, you will have more fluidity in the gesture and better control your movement. This is to ensure good stability at the bottom of your body . Except exception (special moves), you can apply this basic method:

Legs parallel and standing in front of the shot, take the drum in hand at the height of the right hip (arm slightly bent). Lay the process (pool cues and cases ) on the mat, and adjust the position as if you were going to aim.

Shift your right foot slightly backwards, make sure that it is perpendicular to the tail.

Your left foot should “look in the same direction” as the tail. Adjust it to be solid on your legs when playing your shot (by shifting a little to the side or forward if necessary).
