McDermott cues are the result of over 35 years of pool cue making experience. These cues are made in America by craftsmen that take great pride in their work and it certainly shows.
McDermott cues look beautiful and they play wonderfully. By incorporating North American Hard Rock maple, McDermott is able to produce some of the lowest deflection shafts available.
If you’ve never had the chance to actually try a McDermott cue, check out the Select Billiards Hands-On Video Review and photos of the Dubliner from every angle. It’s like trying it out for yourself!
Select Billiards’ Video Review:
This cue features a Birdseye Maple handle with a natural Walnut stain. The standout design element of this cue are the green Dymondwood clovers surrounded by Recon Ivory diamond inlays. The wrap is a black Irish Linen with green specs throughout. The green clover motif repeats itself at the other end of the wrap as well, completing the look of a wonderfully presented cue. The Birdseye Maple continues into the forearm as well.
The Dubliner’s joint is a 3/8 – 10 pin. 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 is a truly beautiful example of a pool cue. The black Irish Linen with green specs is a nice bit of variety from the standard “salt and pepper” look often seen in wraps like this. This cue is Irish through-and-through, so if you’re looking for a way to show your Irish Pride, this cue is a perfect choice. As an added bonus, it plays phenomenally, as you would expect a McDermott cue to do.
