The typical pool cue lengths range from 56 to 61 inches. The "correct length" depends on the individual and the pool cue. The important parts of using a pool cue is proper stroke with hand in the proper balance point and sufficeint weight on the bridge hand for stability. This generally means larger people need longer cue lengths and shorter people need shorter cue lengths for this balance. However, your local pool cue professional can balance your cue to fit "better" whether shorter or longer than ideal. Most cues sold are 58 inches long and there are generallyonly 2 preferred balance points from the "factory" - Meucci cues move the balance point slightly from where most cues provide this.
