well i just went to that site and they indeed say it was ivory inlays. so i would assume that they are indeed ivory since schon has a great reputation and stand behind their cues. If you are thinking of buting it. i would say go for it.........................................mike

wow.....thanks for the quick reply.......I'll hope ur still there to answer this question....since id like to get a second opinion.... Is the CX series the lowest schon? because i have a guy that can get these at cost....its incredible really, and i hate to pass up the opportunity....in the catalog he only had the CX series, but i was looking at some LTD ones that i might like a lil better......for not really any more money.. id assume buying a cue that is retailed at 1349$ it would be real ivory...

also, i found on another site that they describe that cue as having ivory inlays........but in another cue..(an STL) they list it as having "elephant ivory".....?

Hey Nate my opinion is if you plan to buy a cue for $1,000 or $800 which is prolly right around where that cue wholesales you'd do better to buy a custom cue from one of the new guys making cues now, I posted a list in another thread this week with guys like Mike Webb, Barry Cameron, Madison Bob, Bryan Mordt and Blackheart. I am sure for 1k you can get a very nice cue from these guys and the chances of it going up in value will be much higher then a Schon.

that question i cannot answer. but the price seems like it is not their cheapest series. but if a friend can get it wholesale for you then i would not hesitate cuz then you could always recoup your money. you figure wholesale has to be about 1/3 to 1/4 cheaper than retail........mike

right cueball. if i dont like it....which i know i will...ive shot with numerous schons with the 314 shaft that i ordered with it.....but if whatever case i need the money i can sell it for what i got it for easy. Custom cue.......its tempting. But i really dont know what kind id get. Custom cues shot with: Adam Franks, and samsara. they were ok...great hit and all. Id hate to spend that kind of money and realize its not what i want. And resale value......i guess i dont see a cue as an investment.. I buy it for myself with hardly any intent to ever sell it. I love my 150$ mcdermott that i first for when i was 17 as much as any schon or custom just because i get attached to things. I bought 2 cues (a joss and some no namer that seems to be built well) for a steal of a price thinking if i dont want em i can sell em. Well i sure dont need them, but i just like them. I think im destined to be a collector /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

sorry about all the questions.....hope u guys dont charge for time /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif if i order a predator shaft 5/16 - 14 with a ring.......will that fit a schon? i assume it would but in the book it had an * by schon and said to check thread and something about making it fit right? they are all the same or no?

thanks a LOT.....

Well ain't "elephant ivory the real deal?"or do elephants have fake ivory /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif.
The Schon CX line is a line of cues that they build for a certain distributor (CueStix) while the STL line is their standard line.

I have a Schon LTD and yes the silver ring 314 matches it perfectly. I have played with several custom cues but my Schon hits the best for ME. (could be that Limbsaver X-1 doo-hicky I put on it /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif.

Schons only use "high integrity" material. All of their white inlays are ivory, all of their black, ebony. This has been true of every Schon I know of since they started making them.
