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 G501 from every angle. It’s like trying it out for yourself!
Select Billiards’ Video Review:
This cue features a rubber butt cap and an East Indian Rosewood sleeve. The no-wrap handle features a sectional Birdseye Maple and Rosewood window-pane design. More East Indian Rosewood is seen in the forearm.
The joint is a 3/8 – 10 pin. The cue comes standard with a G-Core shaft with a Pro Taper. The installed tip is an 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.
People LOVE this cue in my retail shop and it’s pretty easy to see why. The no-wrap inlay features a sort of stained-glass pattern that looks very striking. The cue plays great and makes an immediate impression on anyone who picks it up.
