Cuetec provides more cue for the money! Cuetec's composite cladding of either graphite or fiberglass completely encases the solid wood core in an armor of high-tech synthetic material. This "Power Bonding Process" protects the cue from warping by locking out moisture and temperature changes. In addition, the synthetic cladding provides ding and dent resistance, and adds tremendous strength to the cue. You get the performance associated with high-tech composite materials, and the feel of wood.
