Tiger Cues are hand made by Cue Makers with at least 10 years cue making experience. Each cue is made from start to finish by the same individual cue maker from timbers individually selected to ensure the best possible cue in the final result. Each cue takes at least two months to make.
Our head cue maker Darryl Ellis and the owner of Tiger Cues of our Cues HAVE ANY BLACK painted-up or covered up woods to look like ebony. Nor do we use any clear lacquers on our cues like some makers. All our cues are finished with polish and sealants to keep out the dirt and have that natural wood finish most players crave.
Our cues are come with a MONEY BACK guarantee that they are genuine North American Mountain Ash or Canadian Maple and 100% ebony, they are also guaranteed to be a straight as a die.
All through the build stages of each cue it is reviewed against acting standards and if even the slightest flaw is found then the cue is discarded. We do not sell seconds here at Tiger Cues!

Thanks Kevin Muncaster from all here at Tiger Cues!
Tiger Cues has to give a big thank you to Kevin Muncaster from Freckelton near Preston! Kev was a UK cue maker for over forty years and arguably one of the best in the UK for most of his career. Darryl the owner of Tiger Cues, and Kev have been friends for nearly thirty years and Kev has been instrumental in helping Darryl take Tiger Cues in the right direction.
Tiger Cues started in 2010 only with thanks to Kev's advice, lessons and instruction on the art of cue making and repair. We can't thank Kev enough for his help over the years. He still regularly pops down to Warrington to meet with Darryl in our workshop for a coffee and provide sessions passing on his vast experience and knowledge. Kudos to you Kev, we wouldn't be where we are without you! :0)

We use only the best professional grade shafts (Maple and Ash) in our Elite Pro cues and use only the best ornate feature woods for splice work in the cue butt.
We replace the black ebony used in our standard range with the far more expensive Dark Brown 'Macassar' ebony. This type of ebony is the finest available for cue making hence the cost.
The Elite Pro cue shafts are professional grade in both specification and aesthetics.

The Tiger American 9 and Chinese 8 Ball cue range are hand made with Canadian Maple or American Mountain Ash shafts and have butts spliced with genuine Black Ebony and other natural woods. These cues are made by our craftsman using the same techniques as that of our snooker cues, yet in the dimensions better suited to the larrger American 9 & Chinese 8 Ball games.
Our A9B & C8B Ball cues will take the same telescopic extensions as our Tiger Snooker cue range. They are fitted with Black Phenolic ferrules and Buffalo Diamond Plus pressed tips as standard. They can be fitted with a Kamui layered tip for extra £9.99.
