One of the games finest players, Walter Lindrum, played with a Peradon cue and in his appreciation for their assistance he hand wrote a contract letter, held by Peradon, giving them the indefinite, sole rights to manufacture cues bearing his name. The original Walter Lindrum Champion is treasured by cue collectors and has now been reintroduced to the Peradon range with the added benefit of some modern day touches such as the quick action joint and butt end joint. This is a full size, 58 inch, 3/4 jointed cue crafted by Peradon in England from the highest grade, kiln dried, North American Ash and exotic Ebony.
Manufacture & Specifications
The ash is carefully selected for strength and straightness before the finest, genuine Ebony butt timber is spliced to the cue by hand and the cue is shaped to produce the distinctive four round point pattern of a hand spliced cue.
The decorative Bubinga front splice and Sycamore veneer is then hand spliced to the Ebony butt. In order to reduce stress to the timbers the cue is then shaped over a period of time until the final tapered shape is achieved, after which the numerous sanding and finishing processes are then undertaken to achieve a ‘silk smooth’ finish. The cue shaft is then stamped in the traditional manner with the cue weight to the nearest 1/2 oz.
To eliminate joint problems the two sections of the ‘quick action’ joint are each precision turned from a single piece of solid brass and precisely fitted 12″ from the butt end to give the shaft length of 46″.
The butt is finished with a Peradon Walter Lindrum Champion name plate and ‘quick action’ butt end joint to accept the optional extensions on the ‘related products’ section of this page.

* The quality of the ash shaft is of the utmost importance when crafting a cue. Shafts are extensively selected with only a small percentage of the pieces processed making the grade for production of these cues. In order to maintain the highest standards of selection Peradon purchase more ash than any other English cue makers. For the highest quality hand spliced cues such as this the selection process is even more rigorous.
