Yes

Conventional wisdom demands that a pool cue has a larger tip and often the whole cue is "bulkier". This applies especially to "American" pool, but many class "UK" pool players use snooker style cues as the UK balls are smaller.

Nope, I agree - just got a nice 4 piece pool cue for my nephew though! £4.99! bargain.

Short of them being cheap, how does one know if they are any good?!

We dont have our own cues but have debated it - but what are the important parameters? What makes a good cue for someone who is learning? How much is a realistic sum?

In short, you don't... At least until you've ahd a good knock around with it.

Again it's a case of trying them out. What's good for one person may be bobbins for someone else. It's worth a gamble when buying a cue only if you are a casual "couple of games on a sunday night" player.

Peronally I prefer a cue with a 8mm tip at widest, and quite heavy, with most weight at the butt end. You'll find a lot of cues have a centre of balance around a third of the way up the length, I like it to be just short of a quarter - if that!

As for pool cues I really dislike them. I pplayed pool for the pub team and always used a snooker cue as they are more responsive by a country mile. Pool cues always feel like a log. Only of any use if you're trying to whack a ball into the next room!

Above all... If anyone takes their snooker seriously, they should NEVER buy without a try. Go to your local club if they sell cues and ask if you can have a knock around with a couple. By far the best option.

That said this deal is outstanding for those sunday players I mentioned!

I totally agree with you Thunderbolt, my other alf is a good snooker player, and breathed out rather heavily when I told him of this deal :)
