A Pool Cue Extension for Every Player
There are many different pool cue extensions on the market to ensure that you can get what you need. You can opt for a universal pool cue extension that works with any stick — or one that's made for a specific brand. There is a telescopic pool cue extender, sometimes referred to as a pool cue extension sleeve, that you can twist to change the size, and there are lower-priced options made in a specific size.
With the different size options available, it's unlikely that you'll need a custom pool cue extension. Most are designed to rest in your cue case when not in use. Pool cue extensions come in materials such as composite, carbon fiber, aluminum and wood, depending on what's best for your stick (check the product details for more information).
Frequently Asked Questions About Pool Cue Extensions
If you have questions about pool cue stick extensions, FCI Billiards can help. Below, we've compiled the most common questions our customers ask when shopping for pool cue extenders.
What Is a Pool Cue Extension?
A pool cue extension is primarily used to add length to your pool cue so you can access difficult-to-reach areas of the pool table. Also called a pool stick extender and similar names, it helps you hit long shots when you need an extension. Cue stick extensions come in different sizes and styles to suit the needs of various players. Pool cue extensions can also be used for training purposes.
How Do You Install Pool Cue Extensions?
The installation process for a pool stick extension depends on the specific product. It could be a screw-on or slip-on pool cue extension. Screw-on installation is more common for standard, single-size options. A telescopic pool cue extension sleeve is more likely to have slip-on functionality. Both are easy to install, usually requiring only the removal of your existing bumper; you just need to follow the manufacturer's instructions for your specific cue stick extension.
Is a Longer Pool Cue Better?
A longer pool cue is not necessarily better — it's simply that certain shots might require a longer cue, like those that go across the entire pool table. Additionally, pool cue extensions allow players to accommodate personal size differences, whether short or tall.
What Is the Legal Length of a Pool Cue?
According to Billiard Congress of America (BCA) Equipment Specifications, the legal length of a pool cue is a minimum of 40 inches with no maximum. That means that a pool cue extension is unlikely to break any rules by BCA standards.
