American Ash ?? (Fraxinus Americana)
American Ash is by far the most popular wood used in modern day snooker and English pool cues, high quality ash is easily spotted by its straight lines and uniformed chevrons along the cue. The chevrons will be forward facing and run in line with the chamfer on the butt of the cue, however many players will choose to hold the cue with the chamfer facing downwards or prefer to cue looking down the grain of the cue.
