McDermott cues are the result of over 35 years of pool cue making experience. These cue are made in America by craftsmen that take pride in their work and it shows.
McDermott cues don’t just look great, they play great. By using North American Hard Rock maple, McDermott shafts are able to produce some of the lowest deflection shafts available.

Select Billiards’ Video Review:
This cue features two brass rings in the butt sleeve. The handle is composed of Birdseye Maple with a titanium grey stain. The wrap is an Irish Linen: black with white specks. The Birdseye Maple continues on into the forearm.
Four brass rings encompass the joint area, which features a 3/8 – 10 pin joint. The cue comes standard with a G-Core shaft which is a 13mm in diameter. The joint does take a bit longer to put together but that provides a good feel and the wood-to-wood joint helps even more.The installed tip is a Tiger Everest.
How It Actually Plays:
- G-Core Shaft (13 mm)
- Hitting the ball with a slow hit, the ball hit the far rail at about 1.5″ mark.
- Hitting the ball with a medium hit, the ball hit the far rail at the 2″ mark.
- Hitting the ball with a firm hit, the ball hit the far rail at about the 3″ mark.
This cue plays really well, which is unsurprising considering it’s made by McDermott. It’s very simple looking, the price is right and it plays great; you can’t beat this cue.
