Do I have to buy cues?
No. You can play using a house cue. This is like going to a pool room in real life and getting a cue stick off the wall.
What is the advantage of buying cues?
There are three types of cues, Play, Jump, and Break, and there are also after market shafts. You must own a play cue to use after market shafts. Play cues look cool and allow you to add after market shafts. They are a statement about your self and you can collect as many as you want. Break cue hit the break shot harder which gives you a better chance of making balls. Jump cues can easily jump the cue ball over blocking object balls. After market shafts have different play characteristics which can make shot making more accurate.
Do I have to buy and after market shaft for my Play cue?
No. You can use the shaft that comes on the play cue. This is a better shaft than the house cues. Some cues come with an aftermarket shaft, see the Tiger cues. Spending more money on shaft upgrades is something you can do later.
