I play and break with a $1500 Bob Dzuricky (DZ cues) I break around 25-28mph.
Shaft is 12.75 with 1/2" micarta ferule.

Cue is still straight and haven't broken anything yet, very very solid cue.

I broke with my player for 20 some years,until I cracked my furrel,replaced the furrel bought a cheap cue tec with a R360 shaft to brake with.
Ten years ago I bought a JP 12mm normal shaft..I brake with it once in a while when playing nine ball,or ten ball.
I would like to find a well balanced 22oz cue that feels right to me,I like cues that are a little front heavy.

I break with a house cue at the bar & someone tried to walk off with my Jacoby while I was breaking.

I was told to "Play with the same cue, Start to Finish", and so I did, until I started cracking ferrules, and inlay in my forearm! Then I started using a break cue. Now I love having the 2, one to take the abuse, the other to remain in perfect playing condition without costly repairs! Plus my Break cue was built for the abuse, and so far has had NO PROBLEMS HANDLING IT!

On the first cue i had i broke with my playing cue, it was a cheap walmart cue or something but the shaft cracked. So i ended up buying new cue from sears, that was on clearance. I used that thing for both as well for many years. My at the time girlfriend now wife bought me a new cue so i plaid with the new cue and broke with the sears cue. After about 7 years the sears cue ended up sounding weird so i took it it to a cue local repair man he said that there was a micro crack in the butt so it was no repairing it. It got me through a few bar fights in the navy and did me well on the table so ide say it was time to retire it i guess.

So i started breaking with the same cue i was playing with and within a month the the feral cracked. I took it in to my local cue repair got it replaced and got a med tip. The Tip i had was soft and had started mushrooming like crazy. He also said that I really should look into a breaking cue as the shaft was not meant to take that abuse. I brushed it off as I never really thought i "needed" a break cue. only used the old cue because i had it and it was heavier and had a thicker shaft and i preferred that for "more power." I was young and uniformed lol. 2 weeks later during league play i hear a familiar tink sound after a break. i cracked my shaft

So after all of that the past 7 years I will use a break Cue or a house cue.

i have owned 3 j/b cues and never use them. the only time i used them was for a break contest. i have broke with my playing cue since i started playing. i see it as you shoot certain shots that hard during a game sometimes anyway, so why not break with it. i have never shattered a ferrule or a shaft or anything else like that. none of my shafts ever warped or damaged. if you have a good solid shaft on a good cue, then nothing will go wrong unless you are trying to make something happen.

I break with my Schon and Pechauer all the time and my other cues before. Hit's better than my break cue. Only thing wrong with breaking with a playing cue is you'd wear off the tip alot quicker.
But if I'm playing on a league night I might use a break cue only because some bar boxes have that metal lining that could really damage the cue...and I've seen cues that have had their finish taken of because of those Valley tables. Not a good site.

I do when playing fullrack banks or onepocket.Other than that, no.I like my tip to stay in good shape and last as long as possible.I dread having to get use to a new tip.When I get It down like I like It,I want It to stay like that for as long as I can.Breaking can be hard on tips,imo.John B.
