Would Mersawa be good to use for a break cue shaft or would you advise rock hard Maple?

Try purpleheart.

That's a good idea. I was thinking of using a house cue and making a sneaky pete style breakcue with a hard ferrule and phenolic tip. I could use a Maple cue or Mersawa cue. Fitting a purpleheart shaft wouldn't add that much to the cost. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Yup.
Purpleheart is about 30% heavier than maple. Much stiffer. You can slim it down, use a melamine ferrule and buffalo tip.
It'll break so hard, you have to wear ear plugs. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

What type of material does Sledgehammer use for their shafts. Also, is Buffalo tip different from Phenolic tip?
Thank You

Sledgehammer uses a canvas-based phenolic ferrule ( it has no tip). Regular maple shafts.
Buffalo is a leather tip. Very hard but still gives you a little control of the jumps and breaks.
