BourQue CUES
Maker of pool cues from 1997 to present in Sanford, Maine.
Dan Bourque has been playing pool for many years, starting at age four in his father´s pool room. He was barely big enough to make a shot, standing on a soda box, dragging it around the table. He played with a special cue given to him by his father. He helped his father repair tables and cues for many years.
Dan Bourque designed, developed, and patented the "Tunable Pro Joint" which is designed to transfer the hit vibration from the shaft to the butt of the cue. A BourQue Cue is designed for playability first, and beauty second. Dan currently works a retirement schedule. Only a limited number of cues are being made and sold.
There are about three hundred BourQue cues that have been made, ranging in retail prices from $700 to $5000. Most are plain with two basic woods used by Dan: cocobolo and African ebony. BourQue cues do not have points. All cues are naturally weighted without the use of weight bolts. Basic cues have Uni-Loc joints. High end cues have the Tunable Pro Joint and the One-Step extension. Most BourQue cues are finished with a natural wood high polish finish.
Dan Bourque is the inventor of the One-Step pool cue extension (Patent #5749788 & #415,231, #D444,519) that screws on the back, goes over the bumper, and becomes part of the cue. The licensed holders are Cuetec Cues (The Smart Extension) and The Mezz Cue (The Pro Extension). The Extension should be used, when needed, like a bridge. A 6 in. extension on the end of a cue will give you 15% more table reach. Using the extension in conjunction with a bridge gives the player a tremendous reach difference.
