Wanted: cheap/effective break cue - 10-13-2006, 10:23 AM

I'm breaking with a relatively stink-pickle quality stick and would like to get my hands on a decent break cue with a phenolic tip and hard ferrule/joint material. Whatever's going to get the best results without spending over about $200. I know there are some sledgehammers for sale around 250-300 but I've got a budget... I'm hoping for a used cue around 150-200. I know it's not much $ but I don't care what it looks like as long as it feels good and wallops the front ball like a champ.

...a used purpleheart and maple Jerico Stinger for $200 delivered USPS in the US? Here is a look at the cue that retails for $399, but you can buy from some places for $329. Breaks a ton and jumps effortlessly.

No way, 65.00 JJ is the best. I have had 400.00 break cues that do not hold a stick to this JJ. It also jumps great. Thanx Aaron 815-243-1101

get ahold of Chrisonline, I got my J&J from him with J/P's, at my door in 2 days including the day I sent the money to him! Then spend the rest of the money at the tables just breaking for an hour every other day, they are great and you can even pick up extra shafts for $30 with the once piece ferrule/tip on ebay as well.

Where have I been without AZbilliards forums all my life? So many resources and offers... but I believe I've made a decision. I'll let you all know how it turns out after my first day/night with it... I plan on spending around 8 or 10 hours straight with it so rest assured I'll give it a good workout.

I went with a Varney j/b. I sometimes break with a friend's mcdermott so I should have a decent frame-of-reference for a quality review. I will put it through its course, trust me
I watched colin's video on power breaking so I will have to give that a shot with the new cue once I've gotten confident with my current breaker. Then I plan on retiring the old one to the wife's collection

personal observations on varney jump/break cues - 10-18-2006, 05:00 PM

varney jump/ break cues far outnumber others at the local room. there are sledgehammers, fury's,j&j, others. more varneys than any other. why? they perform both tasks well-break and jump as well as your skill level allows. i don't have a jump/break yet but do recognize a use/need for one.
it will probably end up being a varney. i usually jump with a schon shaft/micarta ferrule since that is what i started jumping with in early 90's. oh yeah by the way can we say resale value? varney jump/breaks hold their value very well. haven't seen any fire sales on them. hmmm wonder why.
bt he way this is a very unsolicited comment on varney's cues! don't know him personally, don't have any financial dealings/interest whatsever. just an honest opinion of what i think is a good deal. best of luck with your cue.
