MCDERMOTT RADIAL LAMINATED SHAFTS - SNOOKER / ENGLISH POOL

Our McDermott cue lathes can offer a perfect taper not seen before in quality cues and our performance will be seen in the finish and play-ability.

The Radial Laminated Shaft is made from maple with eight sections which is turned over months allowing for natural timber movement.  

Radial laminated shafts have better strength and consistency and also have better dimensional stability, as well as being less prone to warp over time. Also our shafts will tend to be more consistent because there is less chance for wood grain variance, as compared to a solid piece of wood from maple or ash timbers.

All of our cues are turned over four separate turns helping the timber stabilize in each process. Many of our opposing manufactures cut this time down to one turn and that’s why their cue finish and products don’t last well.
All shafts are checked for straightness between each turn and then rested to cure naturally in our climate controlled factory.

CUE CREATOR ASH SHAFTS - SNOOKER / ENGLISH POOL

Our McDermott cue lathes can offer a perfect taper not seen before in quality cues and our performance will be seen in the finish and play-ability. The Ash we use is North American Ash and its hand selected for the straight grain and evenly spaced arrow shaped grain. Selection of the ash is made at lumber yards and we hand select the pieces we want.

Many timber yards make you purchase a pack of 144 pieces but we have a good relationship with our vendor and hand select all of the timber used in our cues.

After selection in then naturally dries for over 1 year before being hand spliced into our cues and then rested in our factory in the USA at 8% Humidity levels. This also helps it stabilize to be at the same levels as our other timbers used and helps the machining processes.

All of our cues are turned over four separate turns helping the timber stabilize in each process. Many of our opposing manufactures cut this time down to one turn and that’s why their cue finish and products don’t last well. All shafts are checked for straightness between each turn and then rested to cure naturally in our climate controlled factory.

CUE CREATOR MAPLE SHAFTS - SNOOKER / ENGLISH POOL

Our McDermott cue lathes can offer a perfect taper not seen before in quality cues and our performance will be seen in the finish and play-ability.

Our Maple comes also from North America and is selected on the pattern that can be seen. We keep away from timber that has any blemishes that can be seen or tree knots. Maple shafts are great around the pack in snooker and english pool with the natural movement of the timber. With longer shot with power or side over a distance a maple shaft will move the cue ball more off line. Playing shots with reverse side and you’ll find a maple shaft will come inside the line of a ash shaft so it can create more angles and give more positional shots over a short distance.

All of our cues are turned over four separate turns helping the timber stabilize in each process. Many of our opposing manufactures cut this time down to one turn and that’s why their cue finish and products don’t last well.
