“John Parris Special Cue”

Written on: 15/04/2014 by RussoItalian424 (1 review written)

Expected a decent playing cue, but ordered the cue to simply compare if the hype some players go on wit are justified or just sycophantic rantings from someone who has no idea how to play snooker or billiards. I was aware pros use John Parris services because he is local and most pros do not pay for their cues, besides the cue used by Ali Carter is very different to the one I received,you would never guess that both were made by the same shop??? My cue cost just on 800 pounds and to be… Read Full Review

“Perfect and outstanding”

Written on: 04/11/2013 by IvanTaylor (1 review written)

I bought my Parris cue in November 2012 i was told that it would take 32 weeks to arrive but didn't arrive till November 2013. Neither the less, the cue is the most outstanding and perfect cue i have ever used. the smoothness and Finnish on the cue is second to none. The wight, balance and overall performance of the cue is perfect. I would never dream of using another cue and I would recommend anyone who is dreaming of becoming a good snooker player to get one. I know that people say its not… Read Full Review

“Shocking Service - Mediocre Cue”

Written on: 08/07/2013 by MattGood (1 review written)

Paid through the nose for an Ultimate Custom cue from Parris Cues with the expectation that I would be getting one of the best cues in the world. Not only was the cue over two months past maximum dates outlined in the FAQ's, the service was so poor that, even if I had have received the best cue in the world it would have spoiled the experience. Parris is a has been who has no business touting his wares any more... he doesn't make the cues and it shows, his arrogance and pig ignorance only makes… Read Full Review

Yeah the same happened to me. my cue came 3 months late. I will be more than happy to agree that customer service is poor.

well... you paid and no-one forced you. And with all your knowledge about him being a 'has been' and not making the cues... well? Did you really spend all that money knowing that? No. You did not. Anyone who knows about cues as you claim to do would have bought something else by at least 4/5 other makers. There is plenty of choice. Someone once told me a fool and his money are soon parted,...

“If you're going to spend lots of money on a cue make...”

Written on: 07/10/2008

If you're going to spend lots of money on a cue make sure you have tried lots of different cues and have a fair idea what qualities you want in a cue. I've seen people bidding £200 on eBay for a John Parris cue that they've never even touched just because it has a John Parris badge on it. The cue could even be a forgery. I went in person to John Parris' shop in Forest Hill back in 1992 and I already had a very good idea exactly what I needed and got him to make me a cue to the… Read Full Review

“Overall, if you get a good one you are laughing but...”

Written on: 31/08/2008 by 1lawyer (6 reviews written)

Overall, if you get a good one you are laughing but watch out for copies if buying second hand. Easily distinguised if you know what to look out for. I can tell with the feel, but there are other signs. Parris has a red tinge on the glue at the top of the ebony splicing and if it is one of the top of the range ask for the reg no. The range differs and some things you might consider when buying is length, exclusive cue is too short for some people at 57" (if you are around 6 ft perhaps better… Read Full Review

So he gives away the cues to top pros and that's why they play with them? Nonsense of the highest order, considering the money on offer and the almost total lack of advertising. Do you really think a Pro would sacrifice his earnings/Career just for a free £1k cue? Or do 12/16 use them because they are the best overall (can't speak for customer service but if you have to wait, you wait... and a cue that should last a lifetime and beyond, well that's the deal). Show me a builder who builds on time and you have a shoddy builder!).

“Parris Cues are probably the best snooker cues money...”

Written on: 01/09/2006 by kolakubes (1 review written)

Parris Cues are probably the best snooker cues money can buy, each cue is made with perfection and precision. You will find that almost over half the world's professional top players uses one and you will also find that they keep their values too. If you look on ebay you will see that sometimes the second hand ones go about the same price as a new one, if not more. I have owned several of these John Parris Cues before and its definitely worth the money, the lower range ones goes from £150… Read Full Review
