The type of wood you use in the construction of your cue will determine whether the cue will be softer hitting or harder hitting. For instance, Ebony and Cocobolo produce a similar hitting cue - hard rather than soft. Rosewood makes for a softer hitting cue. A cue made from Bocote will fall somewhere between.

The big differences are cost, lifespan, and workmanship. Fiberglass cues are generally high volume production cues and are therefore very cheap. Fiberglass cues generally will not warp. Fiberglass cues cannot have any intricate designs or workmanship (what you see is what you get), and generally will never be worth as much as their purchase price as a used cue. Wood cues cannot be made as quickly as fiberglass and therefore usually will usually cost more. Well made wood cues can last a lifetime if properly maintained, but require care. Wood cues can have a wide range of workmanship, with the above average cues typically inceasing in value as they get older. The action of the tip and shaft on contact is much different between different wood cue designs, and different again with fiberglass - this requires getting used to the difference for anything other than a straight on shot. The feel and playability is very different between fiberglass and wood and many experienced players will not play with a fiberglass cue.

Full splice cues are not necessarily better, but they are a more traditional way of making a pool cue. You will hear many people claim that a pool cue shoots better because it is full splice or that a cue plays like a one piece. Most bar cues are one piece full splice pool cues, but don't always play the greatest. The truth of a pool cue is that any pool cue can play great regardless of it's construction technique as long as it has been crafted with quality as a priority. Full splice cues are usually only produced by custom cue makers these days, because they are more time consuming and expensive to produce by mass production cue companies. It is much easier to let a cnc machine carve out a cue then it is to cut actual splice points. From a wood stand point, it is cheaper to use small pieces of wood with good grain to fill those cnc machined inlay points as opposed to finding large pieces of wood with acceptable grain to make a full spliced cue. The wood that it would take to make one full splice cue can produce many nice looking cnc machined inlays. I think that full splice cues are outstanding because of the construction technique and increasing rarity of them. As far as their playability goes, if it is made with quality it will play as good as any other quality cue you have used. Don't let the price or name fool you about a good pool cue. Most of what you pay for are the number of inlays, splices, materials used, and the name that come with the cue.
Usually a pool table weighs around 500-1000 pounds, depending on the length, type of wood and slate used.
