The BK3 is crafted using hard maple wood. The material is hard and heavy with excellent strength properties. Also, it has a high resistance to abrasion and wears. The pool cue made with this material offered unified force and increased strength for every shot you play.

To eliminate the need for the threaded weight bolt that joins the forearm and handle as most cues are constructed, the BK3 uses Predator C4+ technology, in which four perfectly formed slices of hard maple fit tightly together and then reinforced with carbon fiber offering a more reliable, straighter, and more stable pool cue.
- Reinforcement with carbon fiber
Carbon fiber is the revolutionary step towards the manufacturing of pool cues. The most durable carbon fibers are ten times tougher than steel. The innovative properties of carbon fiber make the pool cue light-weight, which is not only tough and durable but also flex for an ideal spin and feel.
The pool cues reinforced with carbon fiber are a one-time investment and intended to provide balance and consistent feedback. The ultra-efficient property of carbon fiber eliminates the cue ball squirt.
