Sonoran cues are so-named because they are built in the Sonoran Desert of southern Arizona where wood cures to the perfect moisture content for providing the most stable playing instruments that money can buy.
And playing is what Sonoran Originals are all about.
Our “Originals” are very simple in design; which is the precise reason they play so well. We refrain from using the harsh-hitting components (like stainless steel and other hard materials) that are so commonly found in other cues. We also minimize the size and configuration of the synthetic components that we do use in order to give the player the closest hit possible to that of an all-wood, one-piece cue.
At Sonoran Cue Creations, we start with carefully selected and aged hardwoods, and then hand craft each cue in our small shop in Glendale, Arizona.
Sonoran Originals are available in seven different butt woods: Ash, Bocote, Cocobolo, Goncalo Alves, Maple, Purpleheart, and Red Oak. Since the construction in all of our Originals is the same, the basic hit will be the same, however, a slightly different vibration frequency will be experienced with each of the seven different butt woods.
