Peradon Newbury 3/4 jointed cue
This full size, 58 inch, ¾ jointed cue is crafted by Peradon in England and features both the Pro-line shaft and exotic Ebony.
The ‘Pro-line’ shaft offers superb rigidity and playing characteristics and with its evenly spaced chevrons and uniform lines gives a great advantage to players who use the shaft grain as a visual aid.
The maple shaft timber is cut using patented technology in order to release the tension in the timbers before being laminated with walnut inlays to produce a shaft with minimal deflection. Although this cue still requires the same care as other quality cues, the ‘Pro-line shaft’ is more resistant to warping than conventional shafts. The ‘Pro-line shaft’ is then checked for strength and straightness before the finest, genuine Ebony butt timber is spliced to the cue by hand and the cue is shaped to produce the distinctive four round point pattern of a hand spliced cue.
In order to reduce stress to the timbers the cue is then shaped over a period of time until the final tapered shape is achieved, after which the numerous sanding and finishing processes are then undertaken to achieve a ‘silk smooth’ finish.
To eliminate joint problems the two sections of the ‘quick action’ joint are each precision turned from a single piece of solid brass and precisely fitted 16” from the butt end to give the shaft length of 42”.
The butt is finished with a Peradon Newbury name disc and ‘quick action’ butt end joint to accept optional extensions. Extensions may be fitted into either the ¾ joint in the cue or into the butt end joint.
This cue features a solid brass ferrule and 9 ½ to 10mm Elkmaster tip.
