Cuetec Cues Signs Former U.S. Open Champion, Shane Van Boening

Cuetec and exclusive U.S distributor Imperial International are pleased to announce that the 2007 U.S. Open Champion, Shane Van Boening, has joined their team of professional players representing Cuetec Cues. Van Boening will make his debut appearance as a Cuetec representative at the Imperial International & Cuetec booth (booth #118) at the 2009 BCA Expo June 25-27 in Las Vegas, NV.

“I am excited about working with Cuetec. Allison is a friend of mine and I know she has been very happy with their partnership. I am confident that my experience with them will be just as positive as hers. They make great products at very reasonable prices so I am happy to endorse them,” says Van Boening.

Van Boening has joined newly voted BCA Hall of Fame member Allison Fisher as a player representative for Cuetec Cues.

Van Boening stormed onto the professional pool scene in 2007 when he captured the U.S. Open Championship title. He continued his reign as the #1 ranked player in the United States with multiple titles over the next couple of years including the Derby City Classic 9-ball and the World Cup of Pool. This fall he will return to the World Cup of Pool stage to defend his title against many of the top players in the world.

“Shane is an exceptional pool player and an even better person”, says Cuetec founder Jones Chang, “we couldn’t be happier to have him represent Cuetec products.”

Cuetec will soon be offering “Shane Van Boening” signature products, which include a variety of cues.
