Why Cue Wraps Matter
One of the most important factors in choosing the right pool cue is how it feels to hold it.
If you buy a cue that’s coated with a special type of glaze that provides extra friction, you can get away with not using a wrap.
But if you generally have sweaty hands, you want to make sure you choose a wrap to help absorb the moisture. The goal is to get a firm grip on the pool cue so you can hit the ball straight with the amount of power you use.
You might be suited for a rubber wrap or a leather wrap if you hit hard shots.
If you’re more of a finesse player, go with a less-grippy material for your pool cue wrap. You can place your shots more accurately with less grip, which after all, is the goal of the game.
