Chester 3/4 Jointed Cue This full size, 58 inch, ¾ jointed snooker cue is crafted by Peradon in England from the highest grade, kiln dried, North American Ash and spliced with Ebonex. Ebonex was developed by Peradon to be the perfect rigidity for play and to be more consistent in density than any traditional timber butt to create superior playing characteristics.
Manufacture & Specifications
The ash is carefully selected for strength and straightness before the Ebonex composition 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.
A Zebrano front splice and Sycamore and Light blue veneer is then spliced to the butt section to further enhance the appearance.
The cue is then turned to its final tapered finish before the numerous sanding and finishing processes are 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 14" from the butt end to give the shaft length of 44".
The butt is finished with a Peradon Chester name disc and 'quick action' butt end joint to accept the optional extensions.
Extensions may be fitted into either the ¾ joint in the cue or into the butt end joint

The quality of the ash shaft is of the utmost importance when crafting a cue. Shafts are extensively selected with only a small percentage of the pieces processed making the grade for production of these cues. In order to maintain the highest standards of selection Peradon purchase more ash than any other English cue makers. For the highest quality hand spliced cues such as this the selection process is even more rigorous.
