You also have to take into consideration whether you want a one piece or two piece cue. A one piece cue will usually be made of wood or graphite but can be hard to travel with. A two piece cue as the name implies comes in two pieces and usually comes in a custom made cue case. A lot of pros use cues made from lighter materials such as graphite and carbon fibre. It is advised that the beginner or amature player use a wooden slightly heavier cue to give the player more control over his shots. Personally i would go with a medium price range and nothing too fancy,and while your in the shop dont be shy about asking advice from the you have unlinited funds you can have a custom made cue made with specfic weight and claim to help you shoot straighter and with more consistently.
