SYRA-CUES BY R.K.
Maker of pool cues from 1989 to present in Camillus, New York, a suburb of Syracuse.
Ron Kadey grew up in a household with a father who was an excellent woodworker. When Ron was ten, his father built a small pool table for the family home. Ron and his brother soon taught themselves to play. Three years later, Ron´s father built a full-sized table to replace the smaller one. Ron became much more serious about the game at this point. Soon he was playing in a league, and competing in local tournaments. But he realized that he did not quite have the talent to make it on the pro tour, so he started working in the insurance business, eventually becoming part owner of an agency in Liverpool, New York.
Ron continued to play pool, and was always intrigued with cues, so he decided to start repairing them on a part time basis in 1988. Using woodworking skills he learned from his father, Ron did more and more types of repair work. After one year, he had repaired every major cue component, so he decided to it was time to make one to see if it would sell.
Ron completed this first cue in October of 1989, and soon sold it for $250. The name "Syra-Cues" was chosen to tell what Ron does, and also, the area from where he works. He has continued to make cues ever since, working in the evenings and on the weekends at the small shop he built in his home. Syra-Cues cues are easily identifiable by the "RK" logo on the butt cap. Ron is proud that all of his work is done by hand, without the aid of CNC. In 1993, Ron started working with a jeweler, and can now inlay most custom designs in gold or silver.
Ron´s cues are guaranteed indefinitely against construction defects that are not the result of warpage or abuse. If you have a Syra-Cues cue that needs further identification or repair, or would like to talk to Ron about ordering a new cue, contact Syra-Cues, listed in the Trademark Index.
