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.
All McDermott shafts are made from the finest kiln-dried hand-selected North American Hard Rock Maple and are turned 11 times. Each shaft is machined, bored and CNC-thread cut for consistency.
McDermott hand selects only the finest woods from around the globe and ages it for 18 to 24 months, storing and machining each piece three times to let moisture escape.
The tri-core butt construction McDermott utilizes promotes straightness over the cue’s lifetime.
McDermott’s 3/8 x 10 wood-to-wood joints provide consistent surface contact and a solid hit.
McDermott also uses an exclusive Impact Control Ring, which is made from a polymer matrix composite originally developed by NASA.
McDermott cues feature chrome tanned water buffalo medium hard triangle tips and hand-glued and screwed fine weave linen-based Ivorine III ferrules.
McDermott Cues and performance shafts are proudly made in the U.S.A. and include a lifetime material and workmanship warranty, including warpage.
