Cue Custom Stick

Is it possible to get a custom made CUE STICK?

Hi,
I am absolutely clueless about snooker but my boyfriend plays a lot of snooker and for his birthday i am willing to buy him a custom made cue stick so could you please help me with
-Which brand
-Any recommendations
Thank you :)

Budget and location would be a great help.

If you are after a snooker cue then I would advise any of the following makers in this order.

Trevor White (Bridgend, Wales) No Website, join www.thesnookerforum.com to find contact details
Mike Wooldridge (Hampshire, England) www.handmadecues.co.uk
Robin Cook (Stamford, England) www.robincues.co.uk
Tony Glover (Swadlincoat, England) www.cues-glover.co.uk
Robert Osborne (London, England) www.robertosbornecues.com
Dave Coutts (Lincoln, England) www.couttscues.co.uk
Kevin Muncaster (Freckleton, England) www.cuemakers.co.uk
John Parris (London, England) www.parriscues.com
Paul Roberts (Stamford, England) www.stamfordcuemakers.com
Dave Brown (Leeds, England) www.craftsmancues.com
Tony Wilshaw (Stafford, England) www.twcues.co.uk

If you are on a limited budget I would suggest the following makers as they should be able make you a standard ash/maple & ebony/rosewood cue for under £200

Craftsman cues
Northwest cues
Mike Wooldridge "Shark" range cues
GBL ltd cues
Mastercraft cues
Master cues
O'min cues

Cues are very personal items to players, it would be nice if you are trying to surprise him with one, but IMO you'd be better off giving him a budget and letting him decide what he wants.

There is alot more to having a custom cue built than just specifications and design. As you are "clueless" about snooker, I won't go into it, but I will suggest you have a look at a few of my previous answers regarding snooker cues.
