Gary Taylor – owner, designer and producer of Taylor Made cues has 30 years of experience making cues for players of all standards, including the cue used by Stuart Bingham when he won the 2015 World Snooker Championship Taylor Made professional grade cues are the pinnacle of snooker cue craftsmanship.
The best Ash is purchased and graded for the straightness of the grain and density; they are then left to air dry before being cut into cue sized pieces which are again left to air dry. The Ash is then turned into the basic shape of a cue before being graded for whip, type of grain, straightness of grain and density, once again they are left to air dry.
Ebony is then spliced to the Ash, and rare exotic hardwood splices are added, another air drying in the naturally warm climate of Spain before the cues are shipped to the UK for a final grading.
The cues are then finished in the UK by professional craftsmen, a beeswax & oil finish is applied to give a silky-smooth finish, and an Elk Master Pro tip is added.
Only 10% of the Ash selected is deemed good enough to make it through to the UK for finishing and sale, ensuring that the cue you buy is the best on the market.
