the control of leather, the power of phenolic, can't ask for anything better

I've got one of those rock hard red super pro tips. It's great, jumps easy, breaks well, has control, and cheaper than a samsara tip too I bet.

I've been really happy with the Samsara JB tips. Use it on my JB's & my jump cue.
As far as cost - they're nearly indestuctible. I don't quibble over the price of cue tips.

I'm with you on that one. Especially if it works as good as most have said here, AND lasts long.

Thanks again for all the input so far!

I agree-Samsara That's a good way to describe them. I hated the all phenolic tip because they made for a very wild cue ball for me.

this is cool 'coz i used to have Super Pro in my playing cue and my preference of having a hard tip suits it well.

i haven't tried samsara but we have 'em so i might as well have one put in one of my J/B cues and try it too. what i tried recently that i found good to break & jump with control is the white diamond tip.

just a personal opinion based on personal experience.

I've been using a Samsara break/jump tip on my McDermott Stinger NG01 for two months now, LOVE IT. Does everything I could do with phenolic, but I don't lose the cue ball on the break.

I think that a good hard non-phenolic tip is best for breaking, but I do like a phenolic tip for jumping.

I think that a leather tip gives me better Cue ball control during breaking, I know how subjective this is, but I also know that it works best for me, and I suggest that each person has to experiment to find what is best for their style of play.

JIMO


Best Regards
