Bespoke Cues

In the 1960’s a popular singing group of that time sang a song called “you were made for me”. In regard to a bespoke cue the same could be said, you were made for me. As bespoke means custom made, bespoke cues are manufactured to meet a customer’s specific needs, or requirements. In the making of bespoke cues there are different materials used. the main material, that which makes up most of the length of a bespoke cue would be either Ash or Maple, although Ebony, Macassar and Rosewood are also known as woods that make up a snooker cue. Macassar is a type of ebony wood and comes from India, Indonesia and the Philippines. Ebony wood can also be used as a splice wood in the manufacture of bespoke cues, as can Rosewood and other materials, these woods can enhance the look and feel of Bespoke cues. These woods can also be used in a splice and this can add attractiveness to bespoke cues. Bespoke Snooker cues allow for a player to have a cue that is unique, a one off. It can also be an investment. How? As the cue ages the value tends to rise in time.
Almost every part of Bespoke cues can be designed to your specifications, which means it can be a certain length, have a certain weight, or a particular tip size. As for length most cues are measured at a length of 57 inches, sometimes 58 inches, which is around a player’s shoulder height. But can be even higher if that suits your needs. The weight of bespoke cues vary, and can range from 16 ounces to 18 ounces although some players prefer snooker cues to be a little heavier. Jimmy White a well-known professional player prefers a heavier cue around 22 ounces. The tip size is also important and can be around 9.5 to 10mm in diameter. Snooker players who would prefer to have Bespoke cues made to their needs can direct the manufacturer in relation to length, weight, the diameter of the butt, the cue tip size, the wood type to use and what wood to include in the splice.
