With its use of black and blue pearl inlays on stained Birdseye Maple, the Viking VIK862 cue is truly a work of art. The entire butt of this cue is an interrupted pattern that forms a sea of wonderful marbled blue patterns. To keep the colors vibrant, the cue is covered with a protective UV polyurethane coating. Beyond its aesthetic beauty, Viking's proprietary methods of manufacturing promote straightness, structural integrity and playability. The proprietary ferrule material and pro taper shaft result in great cue ball control and shot accuracy, and the wood to wood joint provides a soft hit.
In business since 1965, Viking is the oldest manufacture of cue sticks made in the USA. With the exception of the tips, weight bolts and bumpers, Viking manufactures all of the materials used to make their cues. Pro players including Dawn Hopkins, Denny Coulter and Larry Nevel play with Viking cues.
