I have an opportunity to purchase a J/B cue at a reasonable price. But it has a tip that I am not formiliar with, so with the permission of the seller (I hope) I am doing some research, only becuase I am the <font color="red"> </font color> KING of impulse buying. We are all familiar with phenolic; so what is the story with Canvas Resin?

Phenolic comes in many flavors of fibre binding, and canvas is one of them, as is linen, cotton, and paper. Canvas phenolic has about the same hardness and compressive strength as linen phenolic, which might be what you're used to.

My Gilbert J/B has a canvas phenolic tip, as does my Jacoby Jump Cue. If it holds chalk any better, it's marginal.

I'm making a guess that it is the same as the Lucasi JC tip. When looked at magnified, you see what looks like woven cloth ebbedded in it(most likely the same as fiberglass for boats and the such.) This tip on the Lucasi is God-like, better IMO than the bungee tips. Jm2c..sid
