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 G206 from every angle. It’s like trying it out for yourself!
Select Billiards’ Video Review:
This cue features real brass rings in the butt cap. The butt plate features a Birdseye Maple that’s been coated in a pure black Spies Hecker paint. The brand of paint used is an automotive-grade paint and the quality definitely shines through. The handle features a geniune Irish Linen wrap, black with white speck. You can see more of the high-gloss black paint on top of the Birdseye Maple.
The G206’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 great cue. I love the pure black stylings and the Irish Linen wrap. This is a simple cue that remains classy. All in all, this is simply a great pool cue.
