The McDermott Advantage - Performance, Quality, Craftsmanship
Since 1975, McDermott Handcrafted Cues has made raising the bar of what billiard players expect from a high quality cue mission number one. Drawing on the latest technology and a state-of-the-art facility located in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, McDermott has consistently worked to deliver high-quality timeless designs to players of all levels.
Over 150 separate operations are used to build each McDermott cue. After the original design is developed, a CAD programmer uses CAM software to translate the design into machining language. The design is then sent to a sophisticated milling machine so sensitive it can hold tolerances to within one thousandth of an inch, even on the most unique and highly detailed designs.
Experienced finish artisans hand-apply stain coloration by hand, one cue at a time. McDermott inlays are precision milled from a variety of exotic woods, precious metals, pearls, ivory and specialty composites. Each inlay and ring is inset by hand to ensure a perfect fit. Each cue is finished with a moisture-barrier to prevent warpage and give the trademark McDermott high-gloss finish.
