As a thin, tapered piece of timber your cue needs to be correctly looked after in order to avoid warping. If not correctly cared for, any cue, regardless of quality, will warp. Following the advise below will ensure that your cue remains in great condition for every game.
Finally, in order to check the straightness of your cue do not roll it on the table as cues are never perfectly elongated tapers. Instead they should be 'sighted' in the same manner as the cue maker checks the cue at each stage of production. To do this look down the cue's length from butt to tip turning the cue slowly, any warpage will be easy to see.
