The Aristocrat cue with select straight grained English Ash (fraxinus excelsior) shaft, the traditional choice for most modern players. The search for straight grained English ash takes me to timber yards all over the UK, with only 1-2 percent of the timber viewed being of the required quality.
All the ash that is used to make our cue shafts is kiln dried and then further seasoned for a minimum of 12 months before starting the planing process. My shafts are then taken down slowly over a process of 9-12 months to ensure the shaft remains straight for its lifetime.
The David Bowen Aristocrat is for the player who wants to hold something precious without forfeiting class. Four secondary lower splices of exotic hardwood over genuine hardwood veneers. Many precious rare exotic hardwoods are available for the lower splices as well as a large choice for the primary splices.
Average waiting time is 12 months from order.
