The first thing you’ll notice about the Schon CX48 custom pool stick is how the fantastic woods and inlays are expertly assembled to create this visually stunning instrument. Birdseye Maple on the forearm is decorated with fine ebony, Micarta and cocobolo inlays, and the sleeve incorporates a base of cocobolo with maple, Micarta and ebony inlays.
A great amount of effort is placed in creating the interesting oval, hourglass and elongated diamond designs. Once you move past its outward beauty, you will realize that its performance is second to none. This wonderfully crafted cue creates a stiff hit due to the piloted stainless steel joint and shorter shaft taper.
In business since 1981, Schon employs a small in-house staff of full-time craftsmen who give great attention to quality. And because the cues are produced in smaller quantities, designer Evan Clarke is able to personally finish and test each cue, ensuring it stands up to the German meaning behind the name Schon…beautiful.
