GLD set out to build the ''crème de la crème '' of value priced cues. GLD designed these for players who wanted more bang for their buck. GLD built in professional quality for that financially savvy player. With many in this series GLD uses 9 coats if varnish, brass joints, nylon wraps, maple shafts and 13mm tops. These cues are for the player who knows a good deal when he sees one.
