My son turns 8 in a couple weeks, and wants a pool cue. There's a pool table at his after-school program (Boys and Girls club), and apparently they let kids keep their cues there.
I know nothing about pool. A quick search shows prices for what seem to be decent models starting at around $30, and I'd like to keep it close to that, with a case if possible. Prefer a two piece so he can take it to take it to a friend's house if he wants.
His only stipulation was that he wants a "string wrapped handle", which seems more common on expensive models.
I see some 48" and 52" kids' cues. He's about 4' 4", but says he usually uses a cue taller than himself, so probably the standard 57" or so. I don't think it has to be a junior cue.
Can anyone make me a recommendation, perhaps for a knowledge, friendly e-retailer, if not a specific model?
