Maker of pool cues from 1996 to present in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Ryan Theewen started working for Mueller Recreational Products while attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, studying biochemistry. He began by doing repairs and then started making bar cues. He then had the opportunity to train under Troy Downey and could not pass it up. Ryan soon realized that building cues was what he wanted to do, not become a biochemist. Also, Ryan´s grandfather owned a car repair business, so he knew his way around a machine shop.
A pool lover for many years, Ryan appreciated the playability of well-made cues and knew what he liked and did not like about them. He has tried to incorporate this knowledge in his RAT cues. The name RAT comes from a family nickname given to Ryan since very early childhood.
Ryan likes straightforward designs that do not get "too busy." He prefers to build traditional and simple cues. He wants his buyers to have confidence in the performance of the RAT cue they purchase. Ryan works within the Mueller building, alongside Troy Downey, and they share several lathes and CNC machines. They also use the machines in the Mueller woodshop.
RAT cues are hand-signed with "RAT" on the butt cap. Cues made prior to 1999 will not be marked unless it was one-of-a-kind or made for someone special, in which case the writing was in gold.
RAT cues are guaranteed for life against everything except warpage and/or abuse, to the original buyer.
