Bert Schrager

Hello Everyone,

I recently acquired a 1987 Schrager cue. I don’t know much about the cue other than common spec such as weigh and shaft diameter. Pretty easy to see it’s BEM and ebony inlays in the butt sleeve. I wanted to ask if anyone might know what Bert typically used for joint and ferrule material. Also if anyone has a estimated value of the cue. Thanks for all your help!

Bert use to build Cues behind a FIX-IT SHOP on Ventura Boulevard in Studio City, CA. Played mostly 3C at North Hollywood Billiards. That was 1970ish.

Burt Cues back then were converted house Cues, and Plane Janes with nothing fancy, and Cork Wrap. Think CAJoeys Cues are similar, made to play with nothin fancy.

Bert’s last shop was in Kern County, CA. Lake Isrbella, CA.

Later in career Bert made 4 & 6 point Cues.

Well Burt did same thing true Plane Janes, not even one both of bling.

Joey & Kerry Zyler might have got idea from Old Bert, knew they guy 45+ years.

He finished career making Cues with bling factor.

Burt made two cues for me, one in 1976 and the other a year or two later, each with two shafts. The first one was a merry window in birds eye maple. The second was coco bola with four faint ebony points. Both cues had ivory joints and ferrules with irish linen wraps. i paid about 130 for the first and not much more for the second.

Sounds like you had two amazing playing cues.

I had a Schrager that I bought about 1978(?) and I don't think it had any marking. I believe that Bert made a lot of fancy cues for Hollywood people.

Bob <-- not a Hollywood person
A friend has a BS sneaky he bought while living in L.A. One sweet hitting cue.

He had that guy I think his name was Stu who was a master with a pantograph. They put out some pretty fancy cues.
I remember Stu worked with Schuler. He may have been with Bert also. But Bert's wife Pat became the Pantagraph master. His best inlay work was all done by her.

Unless I am losing my memory he was with Burt for a while at least. I met him at Burt's shop when I was out there visiting Burt. I think his last name was Morrison.

I was just given the opportunity to purchase a Schrager and accepted.
The inlay work is exceptional. Nothing really fancy but very well done.
The cue of course doesn't come with the specs I'd order, but I really like it.
Solid.
Leather wrap is superb!!
Built 1993
