Handcrafted Cues by Schmelke
Each Schmelke Pool Cue is built and designed by master craftsmen for
straightness, hitting power, balance and durability. All cues
are made from the finest hardwoods, both foreign and domestic.
The shafts are selected from hard maple, first air dried for
whiteness, then kiln dried and aged to guard against warping.
Each cue has a specially made tip mounted on a high impact fibre
ferrule. A choice of four joint styles ensures the hit and
balance suited to each individual players game.
All Schmelke cues have a specially designed UV finish, usually found
on only the most expensive cues on the market. All shafts are
coated with a non-stick UV finish and hand polished to insure a
satin feel and a smooth stroke.
