BIANZA - Frédéric Caudron has shared the group of top billiard players with the famous Longoni cue. The Belgian has signed a contract with his new sponsor after he had visited the company’s headquarter in Northern Italy.

Caudron announced his collaboration today. ,,After visiting the company a few weeks ago and after nice talk with Mr Pierluigi Longoni, we decided to work together. I was convinced about the high quality of the cues and the nice feeling I had when I was there.’’

Many world class performers in three cushion, like Eddy Merckx, Dick Jaspers, Marco Zanetti, Jérémy Bury, Martin Horn and Semih Sayginer are already connected to the brand.

Alessandro Longoni started the company in 1945, his sons Emilio, and Vittorio Renzo and grandson Pierluigi have further developed the Longoni cues, which are made for all disciplines in billiards.

Frédéric Caudron will play with the Meditarreneo until he gets his own cue. Marco Zanetti plays with the Ray of light, Blue night and Passione earth, Dick Jaspers with Blader,  Eddy Merckx with Emme4 and EM2, Jérémy Bury with 1981 and Martin Horn with Intuition.

Frédéric Caudron played in recent three years with his own mark, therefor amongst others with Adam, Esbee, Alcade and Layani.

Question and answer with Frédéric Caudron:

Frits Bakker: What is the major reason for you to change cue?
Frédéric Caudron: ,,There is no special reason to change, but sometimes there is an opportunity. I’m going to change, but continue to work with Caudron-billiardproducts, so it only  means that it is a higher quality cue that I will use, produced by Longoni.’’

FB: What does the name Longoni mean for you over the years?
FC: ,,Longoni is the biggest name in the billiard world for years with his quality and support to the players.''

FB: When and why did you plan to cooperate with Longoni?

FB: What is the deal with Longoni: that they create a special cue with your name, like the other players?
FC: ,,I will get a special Longoni model, that will be spread around the world, and all the material that I need for myself.''

FB: Is Longoni the most famous company in this specialist area?
FC:,, Longoni is the company that most innovates concerning cues, in cooperation with the players. ''

FB: How important is the confidence in a cue for a top player?
FC: ,,Confidence in a cue is the most important for a player, the rest is side issue.''

FB: When do you first play with the Longoni?
FC:  ,,I am now in Korea for a week for some further testing, but I will all play with the Longoni cue at European Cup in Schiltigheim next week.’’
