Schon R13 - 11-11-2015, 12:12 PM

I just acquired a Schon R13. It is ebony with red veneers and I am going to have it completely refinished. I would like some opinions on what color linen wrap to go back with.

Only wrap colors I really like are:

white/green
white/black
all black

black white can be okay but tends to make cues look cheap only because it's the standard wrap on every cheap cue. black and some other color on rare occasions looks cool to me but often doesn't.

I think all black is a really clean look that I'm surprised we don't see more often.

You know, you tried this once before - Black with White speck does NOT make a cue look cheap.

No one appointed you Emperor in charge of linen colors.

There is a reason why buyers of cues choose Black with White more than all other colors combined

Well, that is your opinion and I have mine. I also said tends to, not always. I might be picking up a cue that has a black/white wrap. Wouldn't be my first choice but I at least find it unobjectionable in this case.

I wasn't trying to speak for the world...just providing an opinion since that is what was asked for. Calm down, as long as you like the wrap you have on your cue that is all that matters and you don't have to care one bit what I think.

White with double black specks, black with red, or solid black........jmo

(The black with red looks really nice in a cue like that. I've done that very thing before....long ago, so no pics of it.)
