I'm just curious as to how many of you use JPs. Back in the day when we had a local pool hall it was fairly common - but I joined a league last May - and almost nobody has them. So who uses?


Best always,

You should have a shot at the cash, especially if we don't get any top pros participating.
Good luck.

I use the mainly because itís easier to grab everything out of the case.


We all make choices, but in the end our choices make us.

wow .. well - like jimmyco I get a set with every cue I buy. There's 3 or 4 beaters I don't worry about, but I have them. To be honest, I don't have anything fancy - but I've been thinking about getting a set for my Dan Janes cue. The guy that did my conversion piece maybe ... New Sheriff In town? Dont know if he does that - but he does nice work. I'm just really surprised that there aren't more folks local that use them. I constantly get "what the hell are those"? IDK .. whatever.


Best always,
Ched

I use them for most of my cues, and the ones that don't have em are either cheap cues or in a very nice hard case.

My case was open as I put it into the car...2 cues and shafts came out partially and hit the asphalt ground ...the JPs saved everything. They got scratched up but did their job. They were inexpensive JP's.

I have to give a bit of a plug, since I got my JB case I do not really worry about the joint protectors being on.

They do add a nice touch to a good quality cue though even if you don't think about the actual "protection" part. Your cue may not be customized but it's not too expensive to get a more personal set of JPs. When my son went to one of his junior national events and went with a cue given as a give to him by Ed Bishop, I had a set made for him with his to match his new cue name on the cue one and cue shafts were numbered since he had a couple so he knew which was which.

Pretty much never, unless they happened to come with cue but have never went out of my way to get them. One exception, kinda. I bought adet that looked like a.bullet, unscrewed and had a scuffer inside, a ***** tool, and a small storage space for ( whatever ). Now though; someone mentioned Jim Baxter, amd I have been a fan of his work for quote some time. I am thinking about trying to get him to male a set for me ( not so much for.protection but rather his cause they perrrty! ) As much as like Jim Baxter's work I do have to say this though : I got a brand new cue made from me from a well know maker about a year or two and I was gonna get a set of JP's from Baxter. I did message him with what materials I wanted used and a general idea od what I wanted but specified id leave it mostly up to him as I was cerain whatever I ended up getting would be gorgeous. I also asked for any kinda ballpark on price, and I didn't need an exact quote because ot would be what it is amd jist curious. ( I knew these were gonna be high end even for him bit didn't care ). I.did get one.response, seemed pretty much disinterested and I never heard back from him so I said f it. I MIGHT give him one more try, but if not there's quite a few folks doing crazy good work on FB And less wait time along with lower prices so we will see I suppose.

They are on all my cues, except the J/B. I'm not really sure how much protection they offer, but most of my joints are Ivory, better safe than sorry! And, the look cool.
