Pool Cue Racks, Keep it Neat and Tidy
Where do you park your pool cue when you aren’t playing? Well leaving it on top of the pool table is an option but not really an option when you have a few of them, much better to get yourself a pool cue rack. These come in a variety of forms from the simple straight forward wall cue rack where you simply screw a base unit into the wall at a height of 1 ft to put the cues on and a separate clip unit 3 ft or so directly above the base unit to clip the cues into and you have a neat simple unit to park your cues. They normally come in 4 or 6 cue units for the home and the pool halls have much larger ones to hold all their cues. That is the simplest and cheapest form of cue rack.

Another rung up on the pool cue rack stakes is the billiard cue stand, which is like an umbrella stand except it is for cues. This is a neat solution and they come in some really nice designs. Perhaps not so good for the cues themselves as the cue is not always perfectly upright depending on the model so is not so well protected from warping, but nevertheless it is an elegant solution and very popular.
The ultimate pool cue rack has to be the purpose built full size wall rack which is like a wardrobe for cues. Some are simply open but the top of the range racks have glass or wooden doors as well and ooze elegance. They come in at $300 plus but if you want to make your games room stand out these will certainly do that for you and give it a custom made look as well.
So there you have it as far as pool cue racks go, it is an essential accessory really, in order to keep your cues straight and in good condition, just go for the one you like the look of or can afford.
