Maker of pool cues from 1995 to present in Danville, Virginia.
David Strader began playing pool at the age of 14 and quickly developed a love for the game and an appreciation of fine custom cues. He tried several times at a young age to make his own cue, but was unsuccessful. He didn´t let this discourage him and he spent three or more years studying the techniques of past and present cuemakers. During that time, he was also designing and building the machinery he felt he needed to build cues. It was almost four years after deciding he wanted to become a cuemaker that David built his first cue. Time was of no concern. He was only interested in the quality of the work and building a reputation that would stand the test of time.
Strader is continuously improving his craft and techniques to make a cue that is not only beautiful but has excellent playability. He has been building custom cues ever since, and has developed a style that is uniquely his own. An engineer by trade, David has several patents pending for improvements on shaft construction and splicing techniques. His method of short and full splice construction is original, offers greater stability, and a look that cannot be achieved using traditional methods. Using these proprietary construction methods, he is able to create beautiful and functional works of art with the classic and complex styling of past cuemakers and classic cues, like the rare Brunswick model 360. This type of attention to detail is given to every cue he makes. All of David´s cues are handmade from the finest materials. He welcomes inquiries on new custom cues and reproduction cues of rare classics that would normally be out of the reach of typical collectors.
Although he has full CNC capability, he prefers to build each cue by hand. He believes this adds to the beauty, character, and value of a cue. However, he does offer retro-fit conversion kits and full technical support to cuemakers who wish to take advantage of CNC technology. In addition, he also offers custom inlay patterns based upon the customer´s requirements. Quotes and programming time are offered free of charge on inlay patterns. All of Strader´s cues are easily identifiable by his signature and date of completion on the forearm and/or engraving on the butt.
Each Strader cue has a lifetime guarantee for the original owner against construction defects that are not the result of warpage or abuse. They also have a money-back guarantee of satisfaction (the cue must be returned in new condition). If you have a Strader cue that needs further identification or repair, or would like to order a new Strader cue, contact Strader Custom Cues, listed in the Trademark Index.
