This 55” cue is crafted by Peradon in England from the highest grade, kiln dried, North American Ash and exotic Ebony.
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.
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 39″.
On this cue the shaft is fitted with the female section of the joint, whilst the butt is fitted with the male. Cleverly, this enables the player to remove the 16″ butt section of the cue and screw the 6″ mini butt (supplied with the cue) directly into the shaft. This makes a 45″ cue for those occasional awkward shots in restricted spaces.
The butt of the cue is also fitted with a ‘quick action’ butt end joint which will also accept the 6″ mini butt supplied with the cue. This lengthens the cue to 61″ enabling the player to use the cue more easily on some shots that require a rest.
The butt is finished with a Peradon Hawk name disc.

* The quality of the ash shaft is of the utmost importance when crafting a cue. 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.
