Soft Breaking in 9-Ball with Playing Cue - 01-13-2014, 05:35 PM

Noob question once again but does anyone know if I will damage and/or break my playing shaft if I continue to soft break with it in 9-Ball? I play with a Predator 314-2 shaft with Tiger Everest tip. Thank you.

I cracked my ferrule on my Z2 shaft when I broke with it all of the time. I had a everest tip on mine as well, but I'm not saying yours will do the same. This was just my experience. Yours could come out different and shoot 'em straight.

I broke hard with my Z2 all of the time.. and the ferrule eventually cracked. If you're breaking soft, there shouldn't be a problem, imho.

if your breaking soft it wont damage it at all. Just think if you play a power draw shot,
your hitting the cueball pretty darn hard. Your mind is telling you different, but your
cue has no clue. It'll be fine

About a year or 2 ago, I bough 314-2 to try out that I delegated for breaking instead. It held up without any problems whatsoever. I even kept the Everest tip on it and was breaking 22mph most of the time.





This is my poolcue. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My poolcue is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My poolcue, without me, is useless. Without my poolcue, I am useless...

if it's soft break (like a regular shot) then there shouldnt be a problem.
this reminds me of Roberto Gomez. He almost won the world championship using soft break almost the entire time during the tournament. it was also a predator cue that he used, i believe.

Thanks for the replies, I broke soft all night with my shaft and got great results, wing ball went most of the time and hardly a hard shot on the 1, my friends were getting annoyed lol.

I don't play with a Predator, but I have broken with my cue the past five years. Same shaft and I play a lot with no issues. With a good tip, no problem there either. Love my John Madden cue! FWIW

I break hard, and have broken a 314/2.... currently on my second 314/2 with the same break and *knock on wood* hasn't broke yet.


I wish I was good enough to say "Oops, I forgot to miss"

Even on a soft break I'll use my break cue, no need to take a chance.
Got to say using the magic rack really makes it easy to make the wing ball and
get a shot at the 1, not that I mind at all.
