I am looking into picking up a jump break cue. Being around the holiday season, finances are a little tight so the J&J brand looked reasonable. Anyone know if these are decent? They seem affordable, but I am wondering how they hit and how well they jump. Anyone have experience with these cues in particular? Thanks.

Yeah, I have one with an extra shaft, and I have bought one for my brother. (4 pointer - Palmwood). I like them, best bang for the buck. If you get one though, take off the bumper, put a couple spots of glue on it, and put it back on.

Chrisonline on AZB is the guy to get one from.

Had one for about a year. Although I only play once a week, but for several hours each time, after about eight months the one piece phenolic tip started shattering. Right now it's pretty much just a piece of lumber. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

I have a 700.00 Gilbert j/b and although it is nice I regularly use the 60.00 J&J I have. It serves its purpose and I don't worry about beating it up. They are a great j/b for the money, in fact they are a great j/b period.
