Thats what i thought. Whats the need for the wrap then, if your holding the cue at the butt? I've read on here alot, that you shouldn't be holding the cue that far back, that a longer cue is needed because your not holding the cue near the balance point. Different strokes for different folks. I'm going to have to try one out. I've been debating getting a longer cue, but don't need another cue sitting around that I dont like how it plays. Looks like its time to mod my schon. I like that black one.
I know most snooker cues have a wedge. This does help when using a bridge. While hard to describe the action, your fingers do hold the wedge while allowing you to sight down the length of the cue without your fingers getting in the way. Also I guess it helps you hold the cue in the same orientation on each shot.
This is just from when I used to play a lot of snooker.
