The CX01 cue uses the best materials available to to build. The CX01 will provide you with a very solid hit that all Schon cues are known for. The stiff hit is generated by the piloted stainless steel joint and shorter shaft taper, which is made of Hard Rock Maple. Moving up the cue, Natural Finished Birdseye Maple on the forearm is decorated with elegant White-stained Maple points and Cocobolo veneer inlays. The White spec Irish Linen wrap, designed for a sure grip, leads to the sleeve, which is marvelously finished Cocobolo wood. Three Balabushka style Ebony, Micarta and nickel silver rings complete the package.
