Resin-Ivory™ Top grade Imitation ivory for cue stick ferrules, joints and butt caps. Resin-Ivory™ is the highest quality imitation ivory we have seen,worked or handled - ever. This material comes in two grades. Both are of the same high quality but with different grain features.
The regular grade Resin-Ivory™ is for ferrules, joints and butt caps. The Resin-Ivory+S™ grade is available only in 1.5" diameter for butt caps.This grade has the Shreger lines in the end grain - hence the +S designation. The Shreger lines are those forming the herringbone pattern as seen in the end grain view of real ivory.
The regular grade Resin-Ivory™ has an attractive grain that looks like real ivory. As one turns a cue in one's hand this imitation ivory shows side grain, flat grain and then back to side grain again. This material flouresces under a black light so customs agents will be able to discern it from real ivory without a problem. Both grades are very attractive and both grades have equal strength. The difference is strictly in the appearance of the end grain.
