There was another thread about same video - but not about the shaft. (which I wondered about too). Check out the 38 min part where ref grabs ball without marking it ... it's a howl

Bkrush. New break cue being tested by Chris, Darren & a few other pro's. Supposed to be released in September for $650 from what I hear. 13.2mm shaft.

thnx, I was wondering about that. Thought that thing looked kinda cheap though, almost like the Poison brand. Had that same 'budgetty' look to it.

I think the butt looms great finally. The blue looks awesome & there really isn't a huge panther on it like all the others which would be great if it's the final design. Let me see if I can get a couple pics up

I'm not sure but I think he won the DCC 14.1 tournament with a borrowed cue.

Couple more picsNo offense BUT: who really gives a rat's a^* what their break-cue looks like? Does it break better or is it another gimmick? Ok, yeah its a real pretty blue. And its how much, 650-700bux? Is it going to make more balls than my $100 J&J? SERIOUSLY doubt it. I guess the REVO suckers will have to have it.

The OP might draw negative rep from some.
I'll wait for retraction from the OP.

Greg...The Revo break shaft is 12.9mm, not 13.2. I have one...and yes, it is not yet available to the public to purchase. :grin:

Scott good to know. I'm very interested in it. Wish it would come in 12.4 too as I'm using my 2nd 12.4 to break now & love it.

I got to hit with it at the BCAPL Nationals this last week in the Predator booth with Karl Boyes. It will be the BK Rush or Revo Rush. The tip size is 12.9 and they told me the shaft is stiffer than the standard Revo and the tip is leather not phenolic. The cue is forward weighted. The one I got to use had the same sports grip as the BK3 but as shown blue and gray. It hits good but as I told them I would need to break for a few hours with 8, 9 and 10 ball and compare to BK3 to see how much difference. They told me the MSRP will be $709 and indicated September was the target release date.

I also talked with Darren Appleton and he said the BK Rush was the best new item to come out. He felt it gives better breaks than the BK3
