  • Ton Praram cues?

    Does anyone know what the difference is, if any between the Ton Praram series 1, series 2 cues? I can't find an explanation on his site.

    There used to be an explanation on the site when I bought mine. From memory it was just the difference in shaft quality. I seem to remember that Series 1 was described as being for the "beginner" whilst Series 2 was for the serious club player. There was also a cosmetic difference in shaft quality eg Series 2 cues may have more pleasing chevrons than Series 1 cues.

      Just to add, Stu at Greenbeize Cues is the UK agent for Ton Praram cues. If you were to give him a ring I'm sure he would elaborate on my comments.

        Yeah, but more importantly are you a snooker playing Alex Jones fan?

          Definitely not a fan of AJ, not for the last few years anyway. He did put out some good material years ago in some of his early documentaries and radio though. Cheers for the replies.

                I see on the Greenbeize website that Praram now have what they call a Begin cue for 140 pounds. Its machine spliced. Quite a bit cheaper than hand spliced. Might suit some folk who are on a budget. When buying a cue you always have to remember to add the cost of extensions, a case and postage. Fairly bumps the price up.
