Opinions on Cue Wrap - 03-13-2019, 07:11 AM

I'm thinking about changing the wrap on my cue. It currently has a black snake wrap but I was thinking of either black linen with clear coat over the top or white linen wrap or keep it as is. I would appreciate your opinions. Thanks

Personally I’d do white/green speck linen.

As is or white linen are both good. It all depends if you
want the black or the white in the cue to be the dominate visual.

A waxed linen wrap works well under all humid/dry conditions. If you sweat allot, get linen. Varner made me change yrs ago back to linen, room conditions are always in flux.

I think black looks best, linen or leather. Black with brown linen might be interesting.

Same here, I am a sucker for the white/green speck linen. Beautiful cue regardless of the wrap you put on it. Thanks for sharing.

If it were a more traditional design I would say green spec.

I think this cue looks great with a black wrap.

Black linen? Sure.

Black leather? Sure.

I vote linen because I like linen, but go leather if you like leather.

I recently dyed a green spec (not Cortland) wrap black because it had issues. I figured if I screwed it up I would be getting a re-wrap in black leather anyway, so I felt free to experiment.

I am so pleased at how it came out I am keeping it as is. Feels great, looks great. This is the cue, a McDermott E-k1 that I got cheap that was perfect except the wrap.

Did you choose looks or functionality?

I'm still on the fence about the white linen but I'm going to keep the cue as is for now. The white linen gives it a classic feel but the black does flow with the design better. I do prefer the feel of a wrapless cue and this wrap comes pretty close. I'll post update pics in the future if I do change it.

Good point.

Just going from leather to linen poses additional work having to build up the wrap groove as I understand it.

If it is finish over leather that issue is greatly compounded with an even deeper groove and the necessity to strip the entire cue I would guess.
