I know it's up to each builder, and I know what's the best this or that, but is there a standard distance from the joint, where a cue is cut to put a.joint in the butt for a jump break?
Legal length is 41" AFAIK.
29" shaft? 12" handle.
Another 4" or so for distance jumping.
I was under the impression the legal total length had to be under 43" in any case that's the guideline I've used.
I'm under the impression maximum is 43" minimum is 40" Let the legal bees figure it out. Normally 29" plus 12 or 13" is where I come in.
The only thing to add is a maximum weight of 25 oz and a maximum tip size of 14mm.No. Under both the WPA and the CSI (BCAPL and USAPL) equipment specifications, cues have a minimum length (40 inches) but no maximum length. The rules do not have separate specs for jump cues vs. break cues vs. playing cues. Jump shots can be played with any cue that is 40 inches or longer, providing that it also meets the other required specs.
