The Worst of everything - 06-21-2017, 10:19 PM

Decided to try something new. Instead of asking what is the best of something or what do you advice. I am asking what is the worst.

So...

What is the worst dedicated jump cue?
What is the worst dedicated break cue?
What is the worst playing tip?
What is the worst ld shaft?

Subjectivity is the spice of life.

I dont care for house cues as jump sticks

I dont like most house cues as break sticks...

I dont like the Tiger tips from a few years ago, the glue that holds the layers together becomes part of the equation more-so than with other layered tips. I have no idea if they are still the same.

I dont like LD shafts with tenons that have a bunch of junk in them. Stuff can and does go wrong with them. Getting them repaired is usually a non-option. I tend to hit with enthusiasm and like to break with my playing cues... and if I am forbidden from breaking with my LD shaft because of its delicate nature, then I toss them in the same pile as shafts that use an erector set in the tenon.

Gentlemen.... Start your engines.

ANY jump cue weighing more than 10oz is bordering bad -- the lighter the better.

Break cues, tips, and shafts are matters of individual taste. What's worse to me may by best to you.

C'mon guys some input here. Please don't tell me finding the worst is an individual thing and I need to try out different equipment until I find out what exactly is worse for me.

Is someone going to get their feelings hurt and become a victim of the
mean ole non-pc AZers. boo-f***in-hoo.
Jump cues should be banned.
Any LD shaft that sounds like a piece of cracked plastic when you
hit a ball. (most of them)
Break cues I don't care as I usually play winner breaks and therefore
have little use for one.
Tips, LePro can be the worst or best, it's a crap shoot.

A little subjective,
any self-respecting table will never come out to play without its worsted cloth on. and
it would rather you didn't jump on.

Jump cues are allowed on my table, but only for players that know how to use them. A banger with a jump cue is cloth damage waiting to happen.

Seriously, the thread questions on equipment are a matter of personal feel/preference. Except with jump cues. A great jump cue is one that is very light weight and has a phenolic tip.....doesn't matter if it costs $25 or $500. If it's too heavy it's no good. If it's not a phenolic or very hard tip, it's no good.

I think any jump cue is the worst, makes the game too easy.

Have not found a bad break cue yet, even house cues are fine as long as they had a good tip.

Worst tip, no clue of the name but a few house cues I have seen use some tip that deforms after almost every shot. I have also seen someone play with a break tip and refused to listen to me when I told him what he was using even though it made a "ting" sound on every shot and would miscue on spin shots LOL

LD shafts, I have not liked any Predator aside from a few Z2 models, and not too fond of the McDermott i models, not sure why though. The hit may be a bit too stiff for me on those but it may have been the tips that were on them.

Too easy.

The worst- what my opponent plays with.

The best- what I play with

If I lose- opponent got lucky

If I win- superior skill
