Cuetec cues are a departure from the norm. They are the only pool cues that are made using a great deal of synthetics. For instance, the wooden shafts are overlaid with a thin layer of fiberglass or graphite, which helps protect the shaft from warping or getting dinged. Cuetec cues do not feature true inlays. All of the decorative features are done with decals and paint. Cuetecs are a good amateur-level cue, and are very popular.
