Build Quality:

This cue has a threaded rubber bumper and features a black butt sleeve. The handle features every color of pearlescent inlay, arranged in a rainbow configuration.

The wrap of the Viking Color cue features every available type of Irish linen wrap that Viking offers, twenty five in all! The forearm has a variety of wood stains, ranging from natural maple all the way to darker greens and reds.

The joint is a 5/16 x 18 with several rainbow rings in the collar. The VPro shaft comes standard and the installed tip is an Everest.

The Backstory:

This cue was never originally meant to be sold to the consumer. Viking manufactured it and sent it to pool cue retailers so that they could keep it in their showrooms and give people an example of how the various wraps, inlays, and stains look in real life. People in my store frequently asked me about buying the cue but I wouldn’t sell it.

A few months ago, I was talking to Viking about ordering a few more of the showroom cue, with the express intention to sell it to the consumer. They said they would do a limited run of them for me. The cue had never been formally given a name, so I decided the best possible name was “The Viking Color”.

How It Actually Plays:

V-Pro Shaft (13mm)

  • Hitting the ball with a soft hit, the ball hit the far rail at about the 2″ mark. 
  • Hitting the ball with medium hit, the ball hit the far rail at about the 2.5″ mark.
  • Hitting the ball with a firm hit, the ball hit the far rail right at the 3″ mark.

ViKore Shaft (13mm)

  • Hitting the ball with a soft hit, the ball hit the far rail at about the 1.75″ mark. 
  • Hitting the ball with medium hit, the ball hit the far rail at about the 2.5″ mark.
  • Hitting the ball with a firm hit, the ball hit the far rail right between the 2.75″ and 3″ marks.

Final Thoughts:

TheViking Color cue is the most unique cue currently available. When you walk into a pool hall with this baby, people will take notice. Of course, being a Viking cue, it also plays very well. If you want to make a statement, this is the cue for you.
