Thoughts on Vikings Cues with "Super Joint" - 06-24-2019, 06:25 PM

Is anybody out there playing with one? Is it good? How does it feel? Why aren't there more Viking cues with "Super Joint" still in service..or are there?

Thanks!

IMO its just a case of "thread overkill". You don't need all that for solid lock-up.

Really cool looking joint.

Kind of like a mousetrap clutch on an old Harley.

How does it feel? Like a pool cue.

There are plenty out there and they trickle into the market like anything else.

One of the cue deals I kick myself for missing had a super joint.

You see them most often on the old higher end cues. They were very popular when they came out, but were kind of expensive and not usually added to an inexpensive cue.

Vikings are great cues right now and the vikcore shaft is flying way under the radar. This shaft plays really really well.

It is a Viking Champion cue made from a Palmer blank. Good eye!

I found one! I like it, well because it's fun to put together and take apart...and then put back together again.

Chopdoc, you were right. I feels just like a pool cue.

I'd buy another one, if I could find one.
