What is Q action in snooker?
The Cue Action begins on your approach by coming in on the line of aim with your tip up on the ball and addressing the cue ball where you intend to strike it. All the top snooker players in both the amateur and the professional game have different types of cue actions.
What is the best tip size for a snooker cue?
9.5mm to 10mm
Generally speaking most pool players prefer and 8mm to 8.5mm tip for a 1 & 7/8 pool cue ball, and most snooker players prefer a 9.5mm to 10mm tip for a full size 2 1/16 snooker cue ball. American pool uses an even bigger cue ball so the tip sizes are normally between 12.5 mm and 13.5mm.
Why do snooker cues have smaller tips?
A smaller tip will give you more control over spin, but may also cause more miscues. A larger tip will give you less spin control, but a more powerful, consistent shot. With American cues, the standard size is usually around 12 or 13mm.

Neither is inherently good or bad, but let’s dig into each a little bit deeper. First, let’s define short and long arm action. Short arm action is defined by elbow extension of less than 120 degrees at hand separation, and long arm action is anything greater than 120 degrees of elbow extension at hand separation.
What happens when you lose momentum in your pitching arm?

What do you need to know about snooker coaching?
One moment they talk about bending the front leg to move into the shot, and the next, when referring to getting down at the table to address the cue ball, they advocate a straight bridge arm. In my opinion this is a huge contradiction.
