I have heard about it, but what is exactly modified to perform as well as other JB cues? I'm about to order the Bunjee one for $135.

It is a just a Players cue they may have put in the second joint and maybe a better tip for jumping. Cheap cue at best.

Thanks for the info (and possibly preventing me from wasting 90 dollars. What know you of the Sledgehammer cue?
Thank You,

I predict they outlaw the dang thing. It's like stealing and has nothing to do with pool.

C.C.~~only used for 9ball IMO.

A fellow I play against in local tournaments bought a Sledgehammer a couple of weeks ago. I don't think he breaks any better with the Sledgehammer than he used to break with a Schmelke sneaky pete that sells for less than $100.

A good break is mainly the result of good technique, and no cue can compensate for poor technique. The Sledgehammer is a high-quality cue, but I think that a beginner or intermediate player might be smart to break with his playing cue, or a cheap production stick, and spend the money he saves on a couple of lessons and some extra time at the practice table.

Got the 5-colones note; thanks, it's very handsome.

Pura vida,
