Viking cues are made differently than most other manufacturer’s cues. We rarely use metal or steel dowel pins to hold the wood pieces of a butt together. Instead, we utilize a more reliable, natural way of constructing the butts of our cues by finger jointing the wood pieces of a butt together. Finger jointing the pieces of the butt improves the structural integrity and playability while further assuring straightness. We season (condition) our wood over an extended period of time (18 to 24 months) in a climate-controlled environment to insure straightness. We offer more standard models at more price points than any other cue manufacturer. That means we are likely to have a cue that matches your personality and budget. The number of no-charge options (stain, wrap, and pearl colors) we offer is far greater than any other cue company. We encourage you to take advantage of all of the options we offer so you get a "customized" cue that meets your specifications.
The price of a Viking cue is determined by the intricacy of the design, the machinery involved in making the parts for the cue, the number of parts, the cost of the parts and materials, and the labor required to construct the cue.
Yes, but expect to pay a minimum of $1,000 as the process to go from concept to finished product is rather tedious and expensive. Computer (CAD/CAM) programming can be over $100 per hour. Materials and labor are also very expensive to make just one cue from a custom design. We are able to produce custom decals, please contact Viking for more information.
Materials & Construction
No. Each Viking cue, regardless of price, is subject to the same stringent quality control standards as it makes its way through our production process. There are over a dozen quality control checks in our process.
Yes, and we do not compromise quality or durability when grading wood. We grade wood based on cosmetic appearance.
Your Viking cue has a proprietary ferrule made in our factory in Madison, Wisconsin. Our ferrules are made from an extremely durable, high-impact plastic material that is resistant to cracking, chipping, and breaking.
Your Viking cue has a pro taper of 12 to 14 inches.
Stain is absorbed into the wood leaving the wood grain still visible. Paint is applied on the wood, and it is rare to be able to see the grain through the paint.
The balance point is within 3/4 of an inch above or below the wrap on most Viking cues.
