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.
If you're gonna sell cues, buy a scale and calipers.
Main players: 1930's Andy Gilbert Titlist, Custom Olneys, LP Titlist, McDaniel - piloted joints for me.
Play shafts: Mainly OB1
Break: X Breaker w/ OB Break shaft (Gilbert JB being made)
Main case: The "Chris case", Mason, & Rugged by JB
Looking for input on what you feel is THE BEST tip for a Jump/Break cue?
Try a madman breack&jump cuetip. if you going toLas Vegas,for the Nationals stop a Joe Blackburn's boot and for $20.00 each including intalation,this cue tip is made out of pig skin and is "LEGAL "by the BCA.......
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.
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 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.
