WELCOME TO

DEFINITIVE CUES

FINEST MATERIALS

SUPERLATIVE CRAFTSMANSHIP

There are more expensive cues available but there

are none finer than PowerGlide Hand Made.

Only the finest woods survive the rigorous

PowerGlide selection tests as suitable to be built

into a Hand Made Cue.

Each Hand Made Cue is fashioned from a single

piece of mature top quality ash selected for its

uniformly spaced straight grain, strength, weight

and just the desired degree of rigidity to provide

perfect power at the cue tip.

This single piece of ash stretches from butt to tip.

The butt is created from four or more carefully

selected overlays of fine hardwoods hand spliced to

the shaft, enhancing the balance and enriching the

appearance of the cue.

Each cue is turned and finished through a series

of complex operations, each executed with great

skill and meticulous care, to become a highly

individual realisation of the cue maker’s art.
