Ebony and Spalted Tamarin Snooker Cue – Snooker Crazy Thai Cue Range
The shaft ash is carefully selected for strength and straightness before ebony is hand spliced to the top fingers of the shaft. The butt is made from a solid piece of exotic ebony and jointed to the shaft using a solid brass vacuum joint.
Birds Eye Maple is carefully hand crafted to the Ebony Butt to furnish this snooker cue a beautiful exotic hardwood top splice.
The joint is fitted approximately 15″ from the end of the ebony butt.
Once the final tapering has been achieved, numerous sanding processes are undertaken to achieve that great ‘silky smooth’ finish we all strive for.
Understanding the requirements nowadays for cue extensions, we have ensured that a Spiroloc (small) joint has been fitted to all our range in case a mini butt or telescopic extensions are required now or into the future. Our Spioloc extensions are a high quality product and can be purchased separately on our website if required. The Spioloc (small) cue joint has been chosen for it’s quick action ability when in between shots – See Spiroloc Cue Extensions.
Once the first stage of the cue has been completed in Thailand, it is shipped in a solid container to the UK.
Here in the UK, the cue then undergoes many stages of oiling and finishing to get that great smooth finish we all look for when playing on the green baize.
We have tried many tips for our cues but have settled on the Elkmaster ‘Milk Dud’ tip which I’m sure will be a surprise to many who haven’t heard of them. We don’t just glue a tip on and send it on it’s way, we wanted to give you an opportunity to try some Elkmaster tips that we have worked on to give a better grip and compression whilst maintaining a shape that doesn’t mushroom. If you would like to learn a little more then take a look at our article on how to make a Milk Dud tip and how to compress a tip. If you would like a standard Elkmaster cue tip then just let us know and we will ensure the cue is supplied with a standard tip that you can shape – see snooker cue tip shapes for ideas.
