Here is a fine looking player from the great old cue master builder Bert Schrager. This is a one owner cue and was ordered directly from Bert and received July of 2001. The handle is Birdseye and the forearm and sleeve are Mexican Cocobolo. This cue has a rare steel joint. This is a great opportunity to own a beautiful collectible cue at a modest price.
Every year brings many new collectors to our website. Many of whom may not be familiar with Bert Schrager and his work. Below we have included an excerpt from The ICA Hall of Fame.
Bert started building cues in the 1960’s and is credited with helping many up and coming cuemakers. We won’t list names, but it would be a who’s who list of higher end smaller cuemakers who spent time in Bert’s shop. Bert has always been very helpful to the beginning cuemakers and that is one thing the ICA stands for. Bert got his start in cuemaking from his close friend Harvey Martin who is also an ICA Hall of Fame member. Bert was one of the earlier cuemakers to break into the high end cue market and one of the first few to crack open the Japanese market. Many famous people have had Bert build cues for them. He never went the CNC route and has produced some very high end cue designs with just a pantograph. He is credited with popularizing the 6 point cue design. Bert was our first living member to be inducted. His wife Pat has done much of the beautiful pantograph inlay work on their cues. At 80 years of age he was still at his labor of love: Building Cues.
