The rosewood used in this pool cue makes it very beautiful. The forearm has four points of dark rosewood outlined with maple veneers, spliced into lighter rosewood. This pattern is repeated in the butt sleeve, where you also have the true splices accented with veneers. The pressed and polished Irish linen wraps are black with white specks. The joint is polished stainless steel. The joint pin is 5/16 x 14. Silver rings are found on either side of the joint, and at the black butt plate. 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.
