Exclamation To every Custom Cue Maker - 04-06-2014, 02:21 AM

Dear Custom Cue Makers

How close are you working together with Pros or other very good Players who are using your cues, to find out how you could make your cues still better in their playability?

Or are some of you thinking to need no feedback or other help at all from any players, to augment the level of playability of your cues?

Or don't you need any players opinion about how your cues playing, because in your oppinion they're already perfect playing cues and there isn't anything to change like the are now?

I already thank you for your honest answers.

KR, Al Capool

P.S. Please excuse my bad and Swiss influenced English.


Player: Schön Unique "T.R."

Shaft 2: Schon IV with black Kamui 'S'

Well first off any cue maker worth there salt has asked for and received feedback from a variety of players. Most all of us were and still are players ourselves, so we have an understanding of what a cue should feel like. All of us are continually learning and striving to improve. There are some people, in all professions, that feel they cant improve but on the whole all of us are trying to improve in our craft.

Once we as cue makers land on a shaft taper that works in our overall "formula" we stick with it. We might make small tweaks but after blowing up shaft wood early on in our endeavours its not going to drastically change. Differences are why there are so many cue makers today with different qualities for each cue.
