I ran some racks of 9 ball over the weekend with a BK Rush and whatever tip comes standard. That thing is a monster lol. The cue ball was zipping off the tip and smashing balls in L,R&C. It was sweet.
I have a cynergy that I really liked once I got rid of that sniper tip, but then I got a water buffalo tip put on my 314 and it hit sweet as a nut and that’s all I’ve played with since. I’m waiting to catch the guy at the pool hall again so I can try the cynergy with a water buffalo tip. If it hits like the 314 does with one then I think that will be the golden combination because I love the look, feel, and taper of that cynergy but it seems to lack a little something in “umph” maybe.
Anyway I’m just rambling but trying to say that a tip change can do absolute wonders.
Nope, your not rambling.
Your assessment is correct. Putting a ferrule on carbon fiber does dampen the hit a little to a lot depending on type of ferrule material to how long it is to how its constructed.
If a person needs a ferrule and the feel, the hit, the sound, the pin etc...etc matters....well, Becue is very hard to beat.
However, if getting the lowest amount of deflection and the most energy transfer is all that matters, well, revo 12.9 is the cue with the 12.4 right behind it.
Ive not tried a revo custom with their version of a ferrule that I can remember. I've tried so many CF shafts/cues so, its hard for me to remember at times which one I have or haven't tried. I'm curious to see if the revo custom will still be super low in deflection and still have the huge amount of energy transfer that the original revos have.
Ricky with Becue has been suoer nice and went out if his way to let me hit balls with Becue cues when they come out with new stuff.
Ricky is a really good guy. Ive never bought anything from him, yet...he still makes the trip to Florence so I can try new Becue equipment.
If/when Becue comes out with something that clicks with me, Ricky will be the person I buy from.
Again, Ricky is a really, really good person to deal with and I hope Becue knows just how much of an asset he is to them.
If predator had someone like Ricky....well, there would be way more revos.
Top tier rep is what he is.
