Craftsman Cues Ltd 51 High Street, Kippax, Leeds, West Yorkshire,
We were honoured to have Stephen contact us for a new cue in January this year 2010.
Currently ranked No.2 in the world.
Stephen liked the design of our Custom Olive wood cue but wanted to try changing from a 1pc cue
to a 3/4 cue. Stephen has always used maple, so Dave (master craftsman cue maker) made 4 identical
Custom Olive wood cues with a maple shaft to Stephen's personal specifications for him to try.
He then drove down to Leeds from Glasgow to try the cues out in the shop. Stephen ended up buying
2 of the cues, a playing cue and a spare. Glad to be of service.

Paul Hunter 1978 - 2006
Cruelly denied golden future
2001 & 2002 Benson & Hedges winner
Paul played with one of our cues all the way through his professional career up until he
lost his fight against cancer and died at the age of only 27. All our thoughts and condolences
are with Paul's family and friends. Would have been a future world champion.
Paul used our 147 cue which was then extended with 4 tulip wood splices just like our Majestic cue.
Then a small while later had us fit 4 ebony splices over the Tulip wood to make the butt plain black again.
Will be sadly missed.
1986 World Champion

Jimmy has been using our cues and services for some time now. Working his way up the rankings and taking the game seriously is paying off for Jimmy. He is certainly the fun loving character that the TV portray him as and we wouldn't have it any other way. Jimmy is available for exhibition evenings, contact us for details.
Recently finding some good form in his game, I'm sure we will see a lot more of Jimmy.
