The Taurus cue features multiple hand spices of black ebony, natural sycamore veneers and hi-tech Diamond-Wood (a manmade exotic timber created using resins and dyes combined with natural wood). These have then been accurately hand spliced over the very best selected straight grained air seasoned North American ash. Particular attention is paid to the grain pattern in this ash ensuring each shaft has between 3 to 10, even, well-shaped arrows on the same face as the butt flat.
The Britannia Traditional range of cues feature a conventional high tensile 9.5 – 9.8 mm Brass ferrule and a fully flanged high tensile traditional brass threaded ¾ joint. This essential component within this cue is carbide machined to ensure strength, durability and unwavering performance. Traditional chrome tanned leather medium Grand tips are then fitted, compressed and even shaped for your convenience.
Each model in the Traditional range is then finished with the famous engraved Britannia black enamelled Mother of Pearl disc badge.
The Britannia Traditional cues represent the pinnacle of Snooker cue design and craftsmanship and so, deserve only the very best materials in all aspects of their construction.
A useful feature with this range of cues is the 6 inch weighted mini butt which you get included free of charge with your purchase. This mini butt will fit in the base of the cue to allow you an additional 6 inches (15 cm) of extra reach, a very useful tool to reduce over-stretching on those awkward shots. The mini butt will also fit in the ¾ joint to allow the shortening of the cue while still retaining a familiar grip. For shots which need even more reach, the Britannia Telescopic Screw-in Extension is available, or for real flexibility why not try the Britannia Mini Spacer.
