The A483 by Viking is one of the best new designs out. The forearm uses a Smoke and Black Cherry faded stain with Curly Maple wood. The sleeve accents this cue perfectly using Crimson Storm Premium Pearl Sleeve Rings with Mirror/Black (IMA) Index Rings. Giving this cue a polished finish is a black with red speck Irish linen wrap. The A483 comes standards with the ViKORE Performance Shaft with a Tiger Everest Tip. Viking cues are made in the USA and come with a lifetime warranty that includes warpage.
