Red acrylic resin impregnated koa makes this cue something you have to see to believe. Koa, a native wood of Hawaii has the most cahtoyance, or 3-D effect, of any wood in the world.. The tiger stripes in the wood change with any change in the angle you view them. The unadorned butt sleeve of this leather wrapped, 18 oz., 4 pointer is perfect without any adornment. It has an aegis phenolic butt cap, phenolic joint sleeve and Elforyn ferrules on both shafts. The shaft collars are natural colored phenolic with two thin brass rings. The lightly textured leather wrap gives a perfect feel to this cue.
