Like all Players shafts, this one is 100% North American Grade A hardwood maple, hand-selected by experts for the best quality and straightness. The tops are turned and stored several times to prevent warping later, and finished with Nelsonite, a patented stabilizer to protect against variations in humidity. Finally, the shafts are sanded with a Pro-Taper and given a high gloss finish of French cue wax. You'll see the top glide through your hands buttery smooth, and most importantly, always stay straight!
The ferrule is constructed so tough that you get a lifetime warranty against cracking or chipping.
All Players cues come with a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects on non-wearable parts, including warranty against warping of the top!
