I don't use them. Tried it once & found them to be an unnecessary PIA. Fumbling with gadgets & accessories doesn't appeal to me. In 30yrs of playing the game, I cannot recall a single time JP's would have saved my cue from damage. They do look cool, though, especially when they match the cue.

I had one Cue and shaft fall out of a case that wasnít closed all the way and the joint protectors hit the concrete first. Iíve had them on every Cue since.

Whether or not you "need" them is a personal preference. I wouldn't be without them.
I make my own usually. I really like some that real cuemakers make, it can add a whole
other dimension of artistry to your cue, some are really cool

i got into the habit of jp's because my Lucasi has a quick-release joint that will jam if it gets the Tiniest piece of dust in it. i have them on my other cues as well, but...

...i have never seen any pro using jp's, and i've seen a lotta pro's play live. which should tell you all you need to know about how important they are.


cues: OB-122 w/ OB Classic shaft & Lucasi Hybrid LHSP

I have them for all my cues. Cheap enough given the investment in cues. I have a JB case, but rather than let them bounce around, particularly when checked as baggage, I'll keep them protected for $10 or $12 per cue.

I never had them during 40 years playing snooker because nobody had thought they were necessary enough to invent them. I had not used them in England when I played pool either. I take my pool cue out of its hard case and a quick twist and my cue is ready. When I finish playing a quick twist and in the hard case.
I think if you have a soft case or you use a sleeve liked the ones supplied by Poison then maybe but my friend who has played for seventy years says they are the emperors new clothes and there are poolaholics who just have to have everything pool related.
I only have one cue, hand made and no protectors, no need.
