Some players may believe that the blue stained maple butte of the Action Rings RNG04 pool cue will help them focus more clearly on each crucial shot. The colour blue can have a relaxing effect, which may translate into higher table accuracy. The cue’s compact, firm hit is controlled by a black synthetic leather wrap that gives a comfortable, non-slip grip. This is a well-made and reasonably priced instrument with a stainless steel collar and joint. All Action cues assure satisfaction.
