For Sale: Schon LTD - 07-27-2012, 11:59 AM

Ok guys, I am now selling this based on the advise all the guys below have given me publicly and privately.

Schon LTD
19 oz. Appox
Standard sized cue
2 ob-1 shafts (i do not have the original shaft)
2nd ob-1 shaft is a little crooked so I am adding that as an extra only, it does not influence the price I set.

I will have the shaft and butt cleaned by Mike Lambros' shop prior to shipping as a courtesy. Google the name, he will do a great job.

The boys on here tell me 600 - 900 for a cue that retailer at about 1100. I'd like to get 750 for this stick. Cleaning and shipping is included.

you should be able to sell it for around 600-700 to the right buyer. thats just my opinion tho. looks like retail on this would be about 1100.

How do you pronounce Schön?


So keep your nose clean keep it on a shoe string
With no opposing no undue disclosing
Nothing stale nothing old or decomposing
Nothing empty nothing bold or over knowing
Nothing more than tasteful reconstruction
Of the plot that edifies all our instructions
It's on the goodness of our dime that you can function

It's pronounced "Shawn"...& I agree..I've owned several Schon's & about $700 would be a good asking price. If you're lucky you might find someone to give you a couple hundred more, but I'm doubting you can get more than $900 for it.

with this market getting 700 for it would be very fair. there just isnt a huge demand for newer schons. if it was a runde era schon it'd be a different story.

It's pronounced "shown" according to DeanC..,who sells for Schon.

And I think if you can get 600-700 for that cue you should take it. That's more than I would pay for it, but maybe someone else will think otherwise.

I speak German and it is definitely not pronounced Shown. Even the company Schon company does not pronounce it correctly. Why adopt a german name if you cannot even pronounce it correctly.

Now from a different point of view. I have a Schon (STL 9) w/314-2 & Schon IV shaft. I prefer the IV shaft. Anyway, I bought a custom cue a while back and as much as I used it I'm back to the Schon. It just feels right. Half a dozen other name brand cues in the rack and they are all loaners. The Schon is for me, only.

You say your LTD is a great playing cue. I'll bet it is. What makes you think that spending the money and having a "custom" is going to play better?

I think my next cue will be a sneaky, but it will be a Schon. Maybe the R-7

If it's not broke, why fix it?

wise words - 07-27-2012, 06:52 PM

I appreciate your wisdom on this, but I'm just feeling the urge to move on from what I'm my schon. I would like to try something with a non metal joint for one. I've hit with a few different joint types and they all bring a different feel to my stroke. I find that I want that "one piece" cue feel to my hit. I would also like my balance point a bit further back than what my schon is.

There is a cue maker in Baltimore that i met and his shop is a few blocks from my work. His name is Mike Lambros and I like the idea of having that relationship with the maker of my cue. He is a hard worker and a great guy.

Who knows, I may be back just like you, but for now...I need a change. Thanks again for your thoughts.

Mike lambros makes one of the best hitting cues. You won't be disappointed with his work.

I agree with the guy that was hinting at keeping your schon, dont fix something that isnt broken. When I was shooting with a pechauer and a players hxt. It sure as shit felt broken I enjoyed shooting with my lower end playes then either of them. I dont want to buy a LD shaft cause I find them unnecessary. As much as I would like to get a custom cue, the schon I have plays lights out and I would not trade it. Wouldnt trade my poison either only thing I would get rid of is my B/j but those are interchangeable and mine has a roll like a god damn kangaroo LOL

But its entirely your choice goodluck in whatever direction you cchoose!


playing cues
-Jacoby custom,
-Kent Davis
-players G2222



Break cue:
-Bunjee jump/break

Case:
-Leather thing it protects my things.
-4x6 ASKA case
-violin box thing.
-Sterling 1x2
