If you consider yourself a decent billiards man then a decent cue is worth your money. Stop wasting time with those crescent shaped shit sticks at the pool hall and start playing with a quality cue.

If you’ve layed down the cash to buy yourself a table for home then it’s even more important you’ve got quality gear around. After all – it’s all about the gear.

We’re striking our 9 Ball games with the Viking G83 Pool Cue. It’s an extraordinary cue with Pearl B-Icy White butt sleeve, inlay, joint rings and scrimshaw engraving. The forearm is made of bird’s-eye maple and the whole cue is stained in a smoke hue that just looks like it was made for a man how knows his game. Viking even offers the cue in 12-13mm shaft diameters and 18-21 oz cue weights along with a choice of colors for the linen wrap.

What this means to you: We know you’re gasping at the cost of this cue. Understandable. Don’t think of it that way. You’re buying quality gear for a quality game. And who’s impressed by weak breaks?

Cost: $1150 @ Viking Cue

Alternate Option: McDermott M61G Velocity Black | $139 @ McDermott
