We would describe the shaft as medium to stiff & is a very responsive cue.

These cues were released after the Second World War, in the late 1940s and 1950s as part of fundraising for The Guide Dogs for the Blind. The aim was to raise funds for soldiers who had lost their sight during the Second World War.
As part of the fund-raising efforts, a group of professional players participated in exhibition matches and tournaments around the United Kingdom. They included Joe Davis, Fred Davis, Horace Lindrum, Sidney Smith, Herbert Holt, Sydney Lee and Walter Donaldson.
The cue was made by Peradon & Co.
Come & try before you buy.
