Alot of info here.Bob started making cues in 75 at home. Went to work for Jim McDermott were he met Evan. When he and his partner Terry Romine in 81 started Schon it was Bob only .Later he talked Evan to come to work at Schon ,named by Terry which means pretty in German i believe. Nubs did cue repairs at Romines not Bob.Bob retired in 91,thats when Evan got in with Terry.Bob Runde cues are not Schons and R-model Schons are not Rundes.Try screw your R-model onto a Runde NOT.Bob makes as good of a cue as anyone.But anyone cant make a Runde.

Hi all,
I just bought a near mint Schon SL15 and am hoping someone can tell me when it might have been made. Also would this have a cored butt?

Thanks,
henrylr

I don't know who made what , but I've had 3 Schon short splice blanks with real V-points and ebony veneers.
Points aren't even but the maple they used was really good.
Very dense.
I'm finishing the second one now.

Thanks for the replies. Was ivory used for the inlaid diamonds or butt cap on sl series cues?
And what type of splice if any was used?

Thanks,
henrylr

Short splice. Diamond inlays could be ivory. Not the buttcap.

Thanks again. The only markings on the cue is Schon on the butt cap and the shaft. Did schon put any other markings, maybe under the rubber bumper?

Thanks,

Only if it was a LTD, SP,OM(made for Omega billiards),MZ, Unique etc. Go on FB? There is a Schon forum on there. https://www.facebook.com/groups/185409831508442/

Did the style of how Schon was engraved on the butt change over time? If so can it help determine when a cue was made?

Thanks,

It did change over the years. Don't know any dates. SL's were mid-90's. That's about close as you're gonna get. Schon didn't keep detailed records like that.

'92 and earlier the shafts were unmarked.
'93 shafts were marked on the collar with SCHON and the tip diameter in mm.
'94 and later shafts were marked Schon in script above the collar, parallel to the shaft.

The marking on the butt cap changed several times, the size, the style of the S, umlaut over the O or not, gold lettering or black.

Also, different pins were used that may help.

I have one of those cues with an unusual pin. My butt will not accept most Schon shafts other than those made with my cue. Evan didn't mention anything unusual about my butt when I spoke with him at SBE a few years ago. Dave Jacoby seemed to remember Schon used a few "custom" pins during the period after Runde and Clarke parted ways. Can not be absolutely sure of this. Had Brandon Jacoby do some work for me as I could not get Schon to answer the phone or answer an e-mail.

First,I am not trying to spread any misinformation, I'm
only repeating what I was told about 2 of my Schons.
The one on top I was told is an R-1 ordered with nickel rings instead of stitch rings ,that's why the script is
different. The one on the bottom with
the different looking pin was only used for 1 year and
that was 91 or 92 I was told. The shafts between my Schon are not all interchangeable but I can't remember which ones and which way, I have more than 2 Schons. Name:  20191005_062730.jpg
