What's everyone's preference for a break tip on their carbon fiber break shaft? I need a new one for my Bk Rush...
Mine too. And others. There appeared to be a bad batch of BK Rush hybrid tips that were separating somewhere in the middle of the layers during a break. I first replaced mine with a Samsara tip as it had the same hybrid makeup as the BK. Guess what? After a short time it did the same thing. That led me to believe that Samsara tips were being used by Predator for the BK Rush. I replaced that tip with a White Diamond and I couldn't be happier with its performance. After hundreds of breaks it still looks and breaks like the day I installed it.The tip flew off while breaking
I'm going to try a Toam 2.0 or the new Kamui Sai tip..Triangle or water buffalo. Phenolic tips are gimmicky imo and damage cue balls.
A lot of my friends have BK Rushes.
I use a Joss butt paired with a Revo 12.9/Triangle tipped, 18.5 oz.
I out break them most of the time, with control too.
Good luck in your search!
Everyone’s different, but I like the Samsara break tip far better than the White Diamond, with my Mezz CF break cue.Same as for a wood shaft. The top 2 are White Diamond (my favorite) and Samsara. I like whatever the stock tip is on a BK Rush is also, jumps well and has a good break hit feel.
Hi, since I have a bit of experience with the Kamui (not a competitive player, just play for fun and sometimes league plays with friends), thought I'd share.I'm going to try a Toam 2.0 or the new Kamui Sai tip..
I replaced mine with the White Diamond after the layers started to come apart on the original tip. I can’t tell a difference in the White Diamond and the Predator tip that was on it.What's everyone's preference for a break tip on their carbon fiber break shaft? I need a new one for my Bk Rush...
I thought that too for a long time. The new tips that are polycarb.(clear ones) and the layered-synthetic like the WhiteDiamond produce more speed with same effort. I'm not a fan of phenolic or g-10 tho. Lot of speed but no control.I’m waiting for one of the computer companies to team up with a tip maker, and create a tip that surveys the table, decides exactly where I need to strike the cue ball, and guides the tip to that point. Until that happens, my error band will totally overwhelm any miniscule advantage I would gain by having the perfect tip. Any hard tip that holds a decent amount of chalk and doesn’t damage the cue ball will work just fine for me and my level of game.
