WHY CHOOSE AN ANTIQUE CUE?

REASONS-(1)

 

UNRIVALED QUALITY:

During the 1900’s, old trees anywhere from 50-100 years or more where cut down to manufacture wood products, including cues. These trees provided superior quality products. Today, trees are mass produced and usually get cut down within 20-30 years. These trees have not had time to properly mature, making it incomparable to its predecessors, in terms of strength and quality.

REASONS-(2)

 

ANTIQUE CUES HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR DECADES:

Besides the tree being older and more mature providing stronger and better quality wood, all antique cues have already been around for longer than 25 years, making the wood extremely well cured. A cue from Peradon, Thurstons or Omin trying to match these quality of cues will set you back at least R7000. The best cut of wood usable by these companies today, trunk-wood, is as the name suggests, from the strongest part of the tree, the trunk and will cost you 2 ½ times more as compared to most antique cues. Most of these antique cues have been manufactured by Peradon, Thurstons & RILEY, in any case.

REASONS-(1)

 

VALUE FOR MONEY:

Just like any other antique item, antique cues hold/appreciate in value, unlike new cues which will depreciate in value for a relative period of time. 90% of all antique cues have been made with only rare hard-woods, unlike new fancy cues which use cheaply stained woods. They are an investment to any player or collector as they have been around for a life-time and if properly cared for, will continue to be around to pass down to future generations.

MOST IMPORTANTLY YOU WILL BE HELPING TO SAVE OUR EARTH:

Every year millions of trees are being cut down by companies making wood products. Conservation and trying to protect what we have for future generations is imperative and very close to my heart and it is for this reason that I recommend that anyone looking to purchase a new or customized cue weigh the true costs of this, as compared to buying an antique, which ultimately costs more than a cheap quality customized cue, is cheaper than any good quality new cue and yet ultimately holds the most value by saving our planet.

MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE:

All Antique Cues come with a full money-back refund/exchange, should you not be entirely satisfied with the cue.** No other brand of cue comes with a guarantee such as this.
** Terms and conditions apply.
