Timeless beauty is the best way to describe the Viking A452 pool cue. The Viking A452 comes standard with a East Indian Rosewood forearm with delicate pearl inlays and Irish linen wrap. The matching butt sleeve is made from the same East Indian Rosewood with pearl inlays and is capped off by even more matching pearl. The shaft is Vikings newest, the ViKORE. This shaft comes equipped with a Tiger Everest tip and a Pro taper, designed specifically to increase control and accuracy. Viking offers a LIFETIME WARRANTY against manufacturing defects, including warpage.
