How it plays:
· Viking cues have a soft to medium hit due to the plastic joint and collar. Various joints will change the playability.
· Greater cue ball control and shot accuracy due to the proprietary ferrule material and pro-tapered shafts.
· Improved structural integrity, straightness and playability are brought to you through proprietary methods of manufacturing.
· Pro players like Dawn Hopkins, Denny Coulter, and Larry Nevel play with Viking cues
· Viking is the oldest manufacturer of cues sticks that are made in the USA. They have been in business since 1965.
· With the exception of the tips, weight bolts and bumpers, Viking manufactures all of the materials used to make their cues
· All Viking cues are covered with a UV polyurethane coating, which helps protect the cue and keep the wood and inlays from fading
· Viking cues have a changeable weight system. You can change the weight by using a ¼" allen tool.
· 2 to 3 ounces is the maximum change
