The Britannia Champion Patriot has a Premium North American Ash shaft and finest quality hand spliced Rosewood butt.
This single piece cue has a high tensile brass ferrule and comes with a detachable mini butt. A reliable and solid performer, the Patriot offers excellent quality for a reasonable price.
All our snooker cues are crafted from solid ash, with the price differential accounted for largely by the quality of the wood and the manner and style of the decoration. Cheaper cues would typically have the detailing sprayed onto the wood whereas the better quality examples will have different veneers like rosewood and ebony actually inlaid as part of the manufacturing process. Please check the individual listings for specifics.
A more expensive cue will last longer and be more resistant to warping in the longer term, whilst typically having aircraft grade steel for the joints rather than brass.
Most of the range consists of two part cues in the regulation lengths of 57” or 58” but there are one or two exceptions. We also have carrying cases available for both the one part and two part versions.
Almost all the cues have a removable screw-in mini butt, which can add some heft to your shots, and a telescopic cue extender is available separately. This is fully compatible with all the cues which have mini butts.
