How it plays:
~ Schon cues have a stiff hit due to the stainless steel piloted joint and shorter taper.
~ Schon cues are produced in smaller quantities in order to concentrate on quality.
~ Schon has a reputation for tradition and mystique.
~ Exotic materials are used in making the cues, which increases the value.
~ "Schon" is German for "beautiful"
~ It can be possible to change the weight in a Schon cue about 1 ounce.
~ You can change the weight using a large flat head blade.
Quantities of Schon cues can be limited. Please try to have several selections when you are ready to order. Wood types, ring style,stains and veneer colors will vary.
