This Flare 8 Ball Pool Cue8 Ball Pool Cue is a 57” inch cue and is in three section and made by Peradon in England from kiln dried, North American Ash and exotic Ebony. This cue is suitable for use with 2 inch ball size for English pool and snooker as it has a 8-8.5mm tip so is more suited to 6-9 foot pool or snooker tables.
A Rosewood front splice and Red and Yellow veneers are then spliced to the butt section to further enhance the appearance.
The cue is then turned to its final tapered finish before the numerous sanding and finishing processes are undertaken to achieve a ‘silk smooth’ finish. This cue is fitted a ‘quick action’ joint in the center to make the cue more portable and a ‘quick action’ dome joint’ 8” from the butt of the cue.
The dome joint enables the player to quickly remove the bottom 8” of the cue to reveal a rounded end on the shaft. This makes it possible for the player to use the shaft of the cue, which due to the brass dome still has good weight, for those awkward shots in restricted spaces. The butt is finished with a Peradon Flare name disc and leather butt pad. This cue features a solid brass ferrule and 8 to 8½mm Elkmaster tip.
