Best Pool Sticks of 2023

What are the best pool sticks of 2023? There are so many pool sticks to choose from! I have compiled a list of the absolute most gorgeous, high-quality, and most advanced billiard technology out there today.

Before we dive in, I want to mention that regardless of what stick you use, in the end, it will always depend on the players’ skill. Buying a new pool stick will not magically make you a better player (but it might motivate you to be).

Best Overall: Cuetec Cynergy 15k

Cuetec has shook us with their latest release of the Cynergy 15K Carbon Composite Shaft. It is backed by pool champion Shane Van Boening and is reinforced by it’s polyfoam core.

Very similar to the Predator Revo that has been the arguably the lowest deflection shaft ever created. These 2 are at a near tie, it’ll be interesting to see how the pool world reacts to the new kid on the block.

Personal Favorite Cue of 2023: Jacoby 4-2

My personal favorite is the Predator Jacoby Panthera 4-2. I’m blown away by the natural design Jacoby has brought to this cue. The spalted maple forearm has 8 elforyn points with black veneers outlining it.

  • It comes loaded with Predators 314-3 Shaft
  • Only 100 of these Panthera 4 Special Editions are ever being produced

Every pool cue on this list has a high performance low deflection shaft paired with a gorgeous bottom cue butt with many different designs. All of these pool cues are relatively new to the market, many being released in 2019.

Best Beginner Pool Cues of 2023

We have also compiled a list of the best pool cues to hit 2023 that are perfect for beginners. If you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg to get a new pool cue, you’ve come to the right place. Here is the list:

Poison, Griffin, Action, and Athena are all big name pool brands that have been around for a while. They are all very reputable and have been providing good quality pool cues for a long time.

Action also provides many house cues to your local pool hall, 9 out 10 times, the house cue you used was made by Action. They are reliable and have always been.

My personal favorite is the Poison Arsenic because Poison was actually the first pool cue I purchased. I used it for 3 years and it never gave me any issues and I love their logo design.

It also comes with a Sarin leather tip and a Venom low deflection shaft. Hard to ignore the gorgeous curly maple points and white/black/brown mixture of colors.

Best Break and/or Jump Cue of 2020

If you are an advanced player, you know how important a break and jump cue are. You need a smooth and reliable tool to perform those very very difficult jump shots. Here are the best Break and/or Jump cues that are fresh in 2020:

My personal favorite is the Lucasi Big Beulah 2. It’s rare to see a white break cue and Lucasi has been a player in the game for a while. This whale comes hitting hard with a huge 13.75mm hardrock maple shaft. It comes with an Extra Hard Bakelite tip to bring maximum energy transfer to your breaks.

Thank you all for reading. I hope you enjoyed this sweet list of all the best pool cues out in 2023! I can’t wait to see what else they reveal in 2024. It’s been a great year for low-deflection shaft technology already.
