You can buy a hanger cheap. It hangs your "Q" from the tip. In a few days it will be straight. Trust me it works great!! Hang the shaft with the butt. More weight helps it get straight faster.So I have just been using a lucky mcdermott to break. Shaft is starting to develop a warp. I am playing quite a bit each week on my table so I am willing the drop some coin on a dedicated breaker. What do you guys recommend and what weight is your break cue? I have heard lighter can be better. The lucky I have been breaking with is 21oz. My predator play cue is 19 oz. Budget wise would like to keep it under $300 top end likely in $500 range.
