View Full Version : Jump Cue Tip Width Survey

05-15-2005, 07:37 AM
I recently bought a new jumper(surprise, NOT!) and I totally overlooked one important aspect of the cue, it has a standard, 13mm tip instead of the honkers I have on my other JCs. I'd noticed that even though it hopped fine that I wasn't getting the same control, now I might know why.

For any of you who owns traditionally made jump cues, not jump/break cues, what tip width did your JC come with? It just seems contradictory for a prominent builder to incorporate anything other than the 14mm on these traditional jumpers. Thanks...sid~~~went DOH!, a 13mm, how'd Sid miss that feature :-(

My jumper has a 14mm tip. I do not believe that jumpers with 13mm tips could do the job as well as a 14mm.

My normal jump cue is 12.5mm and my jump break is 14mm. I use the jump cue almost exclusively over the jump break, unless I'm lazy and don't want to bother to put it together....

Seems to me the 14mm tips do make jump shots easier. I use a McDermott jump/break with a rock hard 14mm jump tip.
