Zaks Custom Cues
Zaks Custom Cues specialise in high quality custom cues with all the elegance and functionality you’re looking for in a cue. With focus on quality and personal one on one customer service we will work with you to create a cue to your specifications and that best suits your playing style.
The first priority of any good pool or snooker cue is playability. No matter how fancy a cue looks, first and foremost a cue should have:
- Great balance to allow for effortless delivery of power,
- A perfect combination of density and flex in the shaft for a perfect combination of responsiveness and firmness so shots can be played without much effort.
Each Zaks Custom Cue is inspected and tested before leaving the shop to ensure top notch playability.
A nice piece of wood is the foundation of any great playing cue. At Zaks Custom Cues, all shafts have been trimmed and cured for a minimum of 2 years. After the curing period each shaft is visually inspected and like the process many great instrument makers adopt we listen to the sound the wood makes upon impact. Resonance of the wood has a great effect on how vibration is transmitted down the shaft of your cue.
This process helps to guarantee the straightness of the cue and eliminate the chance of picking a "hollow" sounding shaft providing your cue with just the right feel.
Zaks Custom Cues uses the finest exotic timbers such as Black Ebony, Snake Wood, USA Ash, Bloodwood, Cocobolo, Canadian Maple, Tulipwood, Camatillo, Purple Heart, just to name a few.
