View Full Version : Phenolic Tips

So what's the scoop with the one piece tip/ferrule tips? Has anyone compared these hard tips on identical cues to see if there is a cue ball speed difference?

I have found a difference in speed of the cue ball, using the phenolic tip on a break cue, maybe 1-2 MPH difference, according to RADAR.

One other definite point is that cue ball control with a phenolic tip is limited to speed & center cue ball hit.

The Cut Break, Safety Break & other types of break shots are questionable with a phenolic tip. JMHO
