BK Rush - 07-10-2018, 12:54 PM

Just received a new BK Rush, has anyone changed the tip and tried something different on it? if so what did you switch to and what results did you find?

I have installed the Longasy break tip, Taom, White Diamond, Zento and Samsara.
They all seem to work better than the stock tip, I think White Diamond and Taom works very well with BK Rush.

Hi Kim,

Interesting that you find the White Diamond works best with the BK Rush. I have the White Diamond on my OB Break Speed shaft and I thought it was just OK. My Rush still has the factory tip and I did not think of putting it on the Rush until I read your reply just now.

Can you pls expound on why you chose the WD along with the Taom?

Thanks!

I have a BK Rush and I think the factory tip is excellent. I've tried a white diamond long ago a time or two and never could warm up to it. I think if I was going to try anything different, it would either be a Samsara (a bit softer than the factory), or the Hammerhead (a bit harder). I'm a huge fan of the Hammerhead and have one on my BK3 and OB speed break shaft.

Mine also has the factory tip and it works very well. I have been consistently able to hold the cue, and I have a pretty nice break. I am not sure how much more "power" it has given me, but I can definitely tell it helps with my accuracy when I cue slightly off center. One thing I have noticed is it really seems to help out players on my league team that have a rather slow/soft break. They definitely get a better hit and spread, but it could be because of the weight of my BK-rush.

Speaking of...what weight did you guys go with on your Rush? Mine has no weights in it, I am thinking its somewhere around 17.5?


Playing Cue: Players G-Series B/W no wrap
Breaking Cue: Predator BK-Rush no wrap 18 oz
Case: J&J 4x8 Black Vinyl Hard Case
Accessories:
Porper 4 Cue Clamp Holder
Magic Rack (Almost Retired)
Outsville Accu-Rack (Excellent Product!)
Poison Glove
Cuetec 3 in 1 Bowtie Tip Tool
Upgrading to a Revo playing shaft (Butt undetermined) and a Hanshew jump cue when they become available.

Mine came with no weight either, the shaft is around 4 oz, the butt weighed 14.05 oz, I have ordered a weight kit for it, I like a heavier breaker
