- This full size, 58 inch, ¾ jointed cue is crafted by Peradon in England from the highest grade, kiln dried, North American Ash and exotic Ebony. Manufacture & Specifications The ash is carefully selected for strength and straightness before the finest, genuine Ebony butt timber is spliced to the cue by hand and the cue is shaped to produce the distinctive four round point pattern of a hand spliced cue. A large Ebony front splice with Sycamore, Black, Rosewood & Sycamore veneers are then hand spliced to the Ebony butt. In order to reduce stress to the timbers the cue is then shaped over a period of time until the final tapered shape is achieved, after which the numerous sanding and finishing processes are then undertaken to achieve a ‘silk smooth’ finish. To eliminate joint problems the two sections of the ‘quick action’ joint are each precision turned from a single piece of solid brass and precisely fitted 16″ from the butt end to give the shaft length of 42″. The butt is finished with a Peradon Guildford name disc and ‘quick action’ butt end joint to accept the optional extensions on the ‘related products’ section of this page. Extensions may be fitted into either the ¾ joint in the cue or into the butt end joint. This cue features a solid brass ferrule and 9 ½ to 10mm Elkmaster tip.

Shafts are extensively selected with only a small percentage of the pieces processed making the grade for production of these cues. In order to maintain the highest standards of selection Peradon purchase more ash than any other English cue makers. For the highest quality hand spliced cues such as this the selection process is even more rigorous.
