View Full Version : Refinish Work

I've got a Schon Cue, 6 points, excellent shape and about 8-9 years old. I'd like to get it refinished and hope you can suggest someone to do the job. I would send it to Schon but I had them make me a shaft and it took 6 weeks just for that. I would hate to do without my Cue for 2-3 months or more if they follow that same schedule. Can you help me? Not looking to save money, just want a great job. Thanks for your help.

I strongly recommend Proficient Billiards. I have sent them 2 Schons, 2 Vikings and 1 McDermott from friends and fellow players and the job they have done is superb. Two or three weeks, tops, for finishing and returning your cue; sometimes in a week. They are located in Ephata, PA.

Visit their website at www.proficientbilliards.com (http://www.proficientbilliards.com) and see their pool gallery of repaired cues. They will also post pictures of cues they are working with, so if you visit frequently you will know when they are working on your cue.

No one does better refinsh work than Mike Erwin. Last cue
I had someone send him was done in 2-1/2 weeks. Even our
local "Billiards and Barstools" dealership here in Dallas
ships their work to him.

If it's an older Muecci, he's might be the guy that made it
in the first place.

Some excellent work was done for me by Sheldon Lebow in Springfield, Oregon.
He replaced the butt cap, refinished my cue, and put on a Stack leather wrap.

If it's mostly refinish work and wrap, then I second Scott at Proficient. He's at about a 2 week turnaround right now. He does beautiful work.

Doesn't Dan Dishaw do his own refinish work? He's out of Cali too isn't he? Correct me if I'm wrong...it might be Richard Chuddy...who I think does his own finish work as well.
