Why Buy a Poison Pool Cue?
POISON POOL CUES. A LETHAL SHOT.
Belly-up to the table with a handful of Poison and you’ll see all the wannabes back off. This is a line of implements unlike any other, with bleeding-edge designs that challenge the eye and best-in-class playability that can make even the best shooter all the more deadly. But be warned: Poison is a substance that causes damage, illness and death to any organism. And Poison Cues? They cause damage to your opponent’s game by means of distraction, technical muscle and sheer, unadulterated envy.
SHAFT YOUR OPPONENTS:
Every potent Poison in the line is topped-off with a 29″, Pro-Taper shaft that incorporates Double Density (DD) Technology. The Double-D method enhances accuracy and maintains optimum stiffness by designing each shaft with two different densities of wood. This little secret is your all-access pass to best-in-class playability, and the other player’s toxic ticket to the Losers Circle. Poison’s DD Technology benefits from Predator engineering.
ANTHRAX. THERE IS NO TOUGHER DIAGNOSIS
Just because you play fair doesn’t mean you can’t play dirty. Anthrax is designed for players who want their technology built-to-bruise. Metal bolts. Tough, tire-tread grip. Attitude by the yard and playability from every angle. When you wield this stick your opponents will feel defeated before the first break is even made. And like all real power, the power of Anthrax is addictive: an infection of body and mind that you won’t want to cure. Ever.
CYANIDE. DANGER HAS A DRESS CODE
The last time this much sophistication met with this much assassin-quality performance, it was speaking with a British accent and holding a martini. Shaken, not stirred. Cyanide cues are clean, crisp and cunning, approaching the game with precision and confidence. Technology that bristles; playability that dominates. The other side of the table will stare nervously at the pearlescent, contrasting colors as you grip those HD rubber wrap stripes to deliver the bad news: You’ve got Cyanide. The sleekest License to Kill ever issued.
VX. BLOOD SPORT
Those who forget that pool is a sport never played the game. Just take hold of that hi-tec GTX polyurethane grip. Feel the different levels of traction and tackiness at your disposal, the soft grab and shock absorption. The VX takes high style to a highly dangerous level, with a sportster attitude, an athletic playability and all the mercy of a numchuck. Enormously flexible in both battle and transport, the VX line features a three-piece Break/Jump cue and a two-piece playing cue. So whether you’re breaking, jumping or catching a cab, this Poison has your back.
ARSENIC. BACK-IN-THE-DAY WITH A TOXIC TWIST.
For Old Skool style with state-of-the-art game, take Arsenic. Fell the cool of that barstool-chrome butt cap in your hand. Fell the round, smooth edges and the classic heft of brown woods enhanced with curving inlays; feel the soft touch and subtle, deeply playable control of that Genuine Leather wrap. Retro? Just a little. But don’t forget those traditionally-inspired good looks hide a wealth of technology. So at the end of the game, this is the kind of “retro” that will have your opponents missing the good old days: the days before you added Arsenic to your game plan, that is.
STRYCHNINE. ELEGANCE THAT TAKES NO PRISONERS.
Fatal attraction. Sporty and fast, but telegraphing a degree of class that commands respect and delivering the whiplash performance that earns it. Strychnine, like so many other creatures feared for their venom, flashes an unmistakable orange and black warning to everyone in the vicinity. Born of the very latest technology and bread for the very slickest playability, this one’s for aggressively classy players only (and those who want to be).
Sarin™, the why-didn’t-anyone-think-of-this-before tip.
The Poison Venom™ shaft is crowned with the exclusive Sarin™ tip. With a .6” ferrule, the Sarin is composed of eight distinct layers, so when the first five blue layers are worn down, the bottom three red layers become exposed, telling you it’s time to replace your tip.
WARPAGE – FINISH: Wood will soak up moisture in wet climates and release moisture in dry climates. To prevent warpage or finish problems, your cue should be stored under consistent temperature and moisture conditions.
ABUSE: Cues made of wood are not designed to withstand lateral pressure. Situations where a cue is leaning against a wall, dropped on the floor, bent while playing or hitting a table can damage the cue. We recommend protecting your cue with a hard case.
SHAFT MAINTENANCE: To clean your shaft, use a towel slightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. To avoid damaging your shaft do not sand it, no abrasive is necessary. Use a leather burnisher or similar material to seal the shaft after cleaning. Do not expose the shaft to excessive moisture and do not steam it to remove dings.
FERRULE: Much of the shaft’s performance can be attributed to our ferrule design and composition. Due to the performance enhancing material used for the ferrule, scratches may appear with use. In this case, we recommend sending your shaft to us or to an Authorized Repair Center for a clean up. Do not remove or change the ferrule or the warranty will be voided.
TIP: If tip replacement is needed, we recommend a tip that is medium-hard, we are currently using Sarin®. For best results, we recommend that you send it to us or have an Authorized Repair Center do it on a lathe.
WRAP CLEANING: Use a very lightly damp towel to wipe off your wrap and dry immediately (do not use any solvents). Isopropyl alcohol will work to clean all Poison wraps.
