I don't really know whats the best. I think it is subjective.

I know that i really do not like those G10 or really hard tips like phenolic where while breaking it feels like i drove a car into the wall.

I like to break hard. I also like to feel the hit. So press block leather tip works for me.

I'm not a phenolic guy, so I love the Samsara Tip. Really jumps and breaks with draw.

Like they said it depends on what your looking for. I personally like phenolic. I don t like g10 it breaks and jumps great but I'm scared of damaging my centennials. If you like hard with control go with samsara or super pro. You can jump with them too. Maybe not as fast up as phenolic but It can be done.

So decide what u wana do. Squat it or crush it and there's your decission

Hey, has anybody heard of that new Samsara tip? LOL!!!

Thanks for the recommendations, and I apologize for not being more clear.

Basically I know there is a trade off between hit and control (and not to mention damage to the balls) with a jump break cue, since it is a double duty cue. I was wondering if there is a tip that both breaks strong and controlled, but at the same time jumps well.

I know I'm sacrificing a bit by not going with a designated break cue and a jump cue, so I was just trying to find a tip that sacrifices as little as possible.

Thanks again for all the input so far!

Hard Water Buffalo is my favor jump tip, it gives you control allowing spin for the hard shots with a curve. The feel is solid and if you keep it low, it works even better. Next is phenollic, but you loose control and spin.

Phenolic screwed into a G10 ferrule. White Diamond if you like something a little softer than phenolic.
