New Partnership Between Professional Pool Player John Schmidt and OB Cues

OB Cues, Manufacturer of the OB-1 Cue Shaft, is pleased to announce their partnership and official sponsoring of professional pool player John Schmidt. OB Cues is honored to be working with John “Mr. 400” Schmidt, the 2006 U.S. Open Champion. “We have a great appreciation for his ability and dedication to men's pool,” says Royce Bunnell, co-owner of OB Cues.

John Schmidt has won numerous tournaments, including such events as the Reno Open, Viking Tour, SE Open Tour and Florida Tour. In 2006, John won the coveted U.S. Open Championship and has a high run of 400 in straight pool. John says from his home in Florida, “I'm very excited to be working with the people at OB Cues, they have the same dedication and drive as I do, plus the OB-1 Cue Shaft is by far the best product I have ever played with.” John capped the 2006 year with a spot on the Mosconi Cup USA Team, where Team USA won the prestigious event in Holland in early December.

"We have been looking for a player that not only played exceptionally well, but also has the integrity and character to represent OB Cues. We feel John is a great addition and asset to our company," said Royce Bunnell. "We believe that OB Cues combined with John's talent, professionalism, and character will make a very successful and long lasting team."

The OB-1 Cue Shaft provides low cueball deflection, exceptional playing consistency and efficient cue ball spin. The design of the OB-1 Cue Shaft provides for an extremely consistent cue shaft, which allows players to become more confident because the shaft performs the same every time.
