From the Natural Series by Cuetec the CT450 is designed with a more traditional style. The forearm and sleeve feature natural-stained Maple with black, brown and white overlay designs. The wrap is a solid black made from Veltex. The shaft on the CT450 is Hard Rock Maple that is Power Bonded with fiberglass. The Power Bonding process protects the cue from dents, warping and temperature changes.
