Blaze has made another spectacular cue with the VR-4! The forearm is a gray-stained birdseye maple. The butt sleeve is ivory, inlaid with four ornate synthetic ivory V-shaped points. The wraps are double-pressed and polished Irish linen, black with white specks. There are five sets of three-layer rings on the cue. The center layer alternates ebony and ivory colors, and the outer layers are all black. This decorative touch adds a lot to the look of the cue. The butt cap is ivory colored. The joint is polished stainless steel, and uses a 5/16 x 14 joint pin. This pool cue has a white hard rock maple shaft, 13 mm linen fibre ferrule, and a Le Pro tip. It comes with joint protectors. Blaze cues are well-balanced for solid hit control.
