Learn more about McDermott pool cues at Games For Fun:
Quality of McDermott Cues
Craftsmanship is a fine art. McDermott utilizes a process that includes over 150 separate procedures in the construction of each cue. All shafts start from the finest kiln-dried, hand-selected North American Hard Rock maple and turned 11 times for stability. All forearms, handles and sleeves are handcrafted from the finest and most exotic woods from around the world.
H, G, and Select Series
McDermott Cues come in three separate series: H-Series, G-Series, and Select Series.
H-Series: The brand new H-Series is the first line of cues ever to feature the fully-adjustable Variable Balance Point (VBP) weight system. This breakthrough is made possible by the new patented technology that combines a full-length carbon fiber core with a rail, on which the weights can be repositioned forward or backward inside the cue. No other cue allows you to have this much control over both the weight and balance.
G-Series: McDermott G-Series cues are known for their quality construction, exotic woods, intricate inlays and limitless customization options.
Select Series: McDermott Select Series cues are equipped standard with i-Pro Slim or i-3 shafts for high performance at an affordable price.
Star Pool Cues
Star cues feature premium maple and exotic woods mixed with intricate 4-color overlays. Manufactured globally using McDermott’s technology, these cues provide the highest quality hit in their price range. They are covered by a limited lifetime warranty.
Lucky Pool Cues
Lucky cues feature premium maple and intricate graphic overlays. This provides you with exceptional value for one of the most solid-hitting, globally-manufactured cues in the industry. They are covered by a three-year limited warranty.
Sledgehammer Break Cues
Sledgehammer is one of the most recognized and respected names in dedicated break cues. The patented ferrule technology found in the SH1 optimizes energy transfer, resulting in extreme power and accuracy. Known to many as the hardest and most solid hitting break cue on the market, the Sledgehammer simply destroys a rack, leaving your competition speechless.
Stinger Break/Jump Cues
The Stinger technology takes the hit energy to the center of the shaft, regardless of where you hit the tip. The tip can be shaped flatter than a typical break cue’s tip. The flatter profile causes the Stinger tip to have a huge “sweet spot.” You can mishit and still get the result you intended. The tip features a “stinger” stem that projects downward through a hole in the center of the ferrule. On impact, the shock of the hit goes to the center of the tip and down the stinger stem, transmitting the impact directly to the center of the shaft. This results in a very efficient, precise hit.
