Best Break Cue??? - 11-09-2009, 11:06 AM

Help!- I am looking to purchase a break cue, could be also a break/jump combo.

Would like to get feedback on which is the best way to go- BK2, Jerico Stinger, Mezz Powerbreak II, Sledgehammer, Tiger Icebreaker or J&J Jump/Break.

I appreciate your feedback.

Thank you,
Crazycueman

stinger 100000000000%..... the break is just as good as any others named, but the jump is farrrrrrrrrr superior... before i went to tom simpsons pool school for a weekend i was able to execute most of what i wanted on the pool table except for a jump. he handed me the stinger and within minutes i was jumping balls.. balls that were and inch or so f rom the other as well.. with an hour or so of practice i jumped a ball 3/4 of the table away for shits n giggles.. its an excellent product.

You must be talking about the original stinger because now McDermott is making the stinger and it's a piece of junk.

I would advise you to look at the OB break, or atleast the shaft. That thing is amazing! I had a Fury which used to be rated one of the best, this blew it away!

I myself would have to recommend one of are fellow AZer's jump/break cues. Chad of CAM cues makes a phenomenal j/b cue that breaks and jumps as good or better than anything out there and the price isn't out of reach either. If your looking for one that's a little cheaper the Cannon j/b is a great cue also. I had a Cannon before I got my CAM and I had a line of about 4 friends that wanted to buy my Cannon when I got my CAM and decided to sell the Cannon and it only cost around $170 new.


Butter
Playing cue~ SCRUGGS, CAM CUSTOM
Break/jump~ CAM custom
Case~ Instroke 3x5
Favorite spot to shoot~ Big Shots Sports Bar (Muncie's Finest)
Back up and collection cues~ 3 Carolina's, GS custom, Capone, 2 Scruggs, 4 Pechauers, Frey, Nitti, Stacey, Phillippi, Erwin, Bludworth, Richard Neighbors Cusrom and a JD

PROUD to be a new member of AZ there are a lot of great people on here. Thanks to all

I've had every break and jump break cue in the market in order on each category, these are my favorites:

Break cue: Mezz Power Break II - I have them. Pm me for more info.
Custom Jump/Break: Rick Howard "Mace" - I have one with a leather wrap. Will let got for $375.00 shipped and it is brand new.
Production jump/break: Tiger Icebreaker (has the ability to do long and short jumps). Awesome cue. 12squared has one that was mine but I can get you one as well brand new if you wish.

For a break cue ... For my money ... Nothing beats an old Schmelke cue with their #1 Brass to Brass joint and a Hard Water Buffalo tip.

Just my $0.02


Regards, 8-Ball in South Florida

Cues: Arnot Bocote and Birdseye Matched set.
Jump Cue: Custom Bocote Jump Handle on Arnot T3 shaft with phenolic tip.
Cases: Castillo 3x6 Deerskin leather hard case and matching 2x4 soft case.

Find me on FaceBook. On Twitter. And, on YouTube.

If I had a jump/break for sale it would be the best one on the planet but I don't. I had a mezz break cue and it was great and my teamates through it was the best they ever hit but I sold it like every other cue I have owned and now I have a BK2. All though it has a phenolic/leather? mix tip it holds chaulk better than a all phenolic tip and you can hit it off center and it doesn't mis-cue or feel funny. I dont like to jump so a jump/break doesnt matter to me (I have a short jumper that works fine). I know bk2 has some issues with there joint breaking but from all the posts about that it seems the breaker has something to do with that by bending the shaft into the table. Right now I would swear by the bk2....I have been making balls on the break and the cue ball not scratching and i notice the better control. The mezz worked very well also...better than all phenolic tiped cue, it has a similiar tip . Another issue is will all phenolic tips be banned by other leagues like the bca has???? . I don't know if the mezz or bk2 would fit there ban definitions but I have seen threads here on az with photos of the damage they are doing to the balls.
