When searching for the perfect pool cue, you obviously want to look for a cue that is well-made with good function. The appearance may also be a major factor in your selection process. In addition to good quality, you may want a cue with a look that sets it apart from the rest.
One company that is infamous for their well-made and attractive looking products is Viking Cues. This manufacturer has been crafting high-quality cues since the 1960’s. All of their products are made in the U.S.A. Viking is one of the oldest and top cue makers in America. The warranty they provide to back their products is also a benefit to their customers.
The Viking G69 cue is a very popular modell. The unique look of this pool stick is responsible for attracting it much attention. The butt is made up bird’s-eye maple with a decorative ebony inlay. The forearm is lined by maple rings to complement the design.
This cue is produced at a standard length of 58 inches. However, at your request, Viking can add up to 3 inches on both the shaft and/or the butt. The length can be shortened as well, but a cue length of at least 52 inches is recommended. You may incur an additional charge for these length modifications.
Viking also allows you to specify the desired weight and shaft diameter of your cue, if desired. The standard weight of the G69 is 18 oz to 21 oz, but you can request a number in this range within increments of quarter-ounce. An adjustable weight-bolt system is included.
Viking recommends that you have the weight adjusted by an authorized dealer, like CornerPocketPool.com, rather than doing it yourself. Shaft diameter is a standard 13 mm unless you otherwise indicate. The range of potential diameters is between 12 mm and 13 mm in quarter millimeter increments. The company makes these adjustments for you at no additional charge.
A few other attributes of the G69 include:
• Joint B High Impact Plastic to Stainless Steel
• Quick release 5/16 to 5/18 joint-pin
• Pro-taper shaft of 12 to 14 inches
• Standard LePro hard tip
