I thought all Predator Bk2 cues had Phenolic Tips.

Mr. Joey-------
they do but shaped more like a normal tip and actually puts out a fairly predictable draw. Go to the web site and you will see that it is Phenolic and carbon fiber. I own one and played a tourney last night with it and it dern sure is not a leather tip.

That price is just a few dollars more than what I paid for mine at Seyberts including shipping. Seyberts actually changed the tip to one we agreed on.

I was happy with the leather tip they put on, but about a month later, I still decided to get an extra BK2 shaft with the original phenolic. I definitely have the break cue thing covered! lol

I know that putting a leather tip on defeats the power thing the BK2 is known for, however I find myself pulling out the leather tip BK2 shaft more than the phenolic one.

OK, got that.

Not to hijack my own thread but......

What is the differences between the BK 1 and the BK 2?

This forum is the NUTS.

Just a little foot note. While I appreciate the manufacturers providing their knowledge in written form, there is nothing like a consensus from the people that use the equipment. The consensus from a wide group of users like what is here on AZ provides information that is difficult to come by and is just one of the reasons I like AZ Billiards.

Thanks,

the bk1 had a leather tip as standard instead of phenolic

the bk2 has lower deflection than the bk1

This is one of the things I am afraid of. I liked the old BK1 hit and I am not sure I will like the BK2 with the phenolic tip better than the leather tip. Guess I will have to find a BK2 with leather and with phenolic to compare the two.
