Parris Cues in Sports Directory


In creating a Parris Cue, John Parris ensures that every one is made from the finest materials available. The shafts are of the highest quality straight grained mature ash and maple. These are hand picked and examined at every stage of manufacture, and any shafts not up to our high standards are rejected. John feels that the shaft is the most important part of the cue and must have the correct feel and rigidity so it will be able to perform the full range of shots expected of a John Parris creation. When the shaft is finally selected and cut to the appropriate length the butt is then carefully hand spliced. This involves the shaft being hand planed then inlaid with a minimum of four separate splices of exotic timber (usually ebony or rosewood). Butts can also have decorative splicing and veneers to give the cue individuality. We stock a wide range of exotic and rare timbers which are selected for their unique grain patterns and distinctive colourings. The cue is then fitted with a brass ferrule to protect the top of the cue and give a good seating for the tip. A leather pad is moulded to the end of the butt (not applicable to cues with S.D. joints). Cue joints are made from solid brass to our own special design and are precision fitted to each cue ensuring perfect alignment and contact. The cue then goes through nine different sanding operations to give it a silky smooth surface. Finally linseed oil is applied and the butt is burnished with wax to give a warm, smooth, natural feel. You will find this finish unique to a Parris cue and very different from that of lacquered cues which are more common.
