The Forearm, Handle and Butt Sleeve are made with Amazon Rosewood. If you're a wood nut like me, a great website to look at is Wooddatabase.com They give technical specs to most woods known to mankind, in their details it does state that this is one of the closest, if not the closest things we can get to the real Brazilian Rosewood. The rings on the cue are made with Snake Juma and the shaft will have a matching ring.
It comes with a Maple shaft of very hi quality. I keep the standard 12" Pro Taper at 12.75 mm in stock or I can custom make the taper you want, same price
It has the Flat Faced Self Centering pin with the 3/8" x 10 tpi.
