The Cuetec CT274 uses a Fire Engine red finish on the forearm and sleeve. The Veltex wrap provides a non-slip grip and ties the cue together nicely. Separating itself from the competition, Cuetec uses a Power Bonding Process which seals out moisture and prevents the shaft from warping. The fiberglass shield also protects the shaft from those annoying dings and dents. A top performing cue that will last for years to come.
