    Folks who left us

    Well, I caved in and dropped by the Playpool.com board yesterday and gosh darnit if the entire CCB crew weren't there. I hope folks come back since I don't really have time to hang out on both boards. Sure will miss those people (Barbara one of my favs).

    Phenolic tips. I'm having a phenolic tip installed on my break/jump today. Anybody else break/jump with these tips?

    R.J.~~~trying stuff in my experimental stage.

    Not for nothing, but wouldn't these tips be illegal under BCA spec. rules?

    Fred, I don't know but since I don't play BCA it really wouldn't matter. If I did I do have another break cue. I know the phenolic tip jumpers are not outlawed on the Florida Tour now and everyone has one.

    Played against a guy the other night who had a "phenolic" tip on his cue...he was jumping everything in the place...said he was thinking of jumping the fountains at "Caesar's Palace" in Vegas, a la, Evil Knievel with it!

    Where did you find one? By the way...they are illegal per BCA rulings (tips must be leather or synthetic leather)

    Happy Hopping!

    Someone please explain to me why a phenolic material should be outlawed. I don't get it, seems like the BCA gets "illegal happy" over nuthin' these days...sid~~~thinks his Lucase jumper may have a phenolic tip

    Where can I get one!!???

    You know when you have (or are playing against) a player with a phenolic tip on his jump cue. It's amazing what a little piece of plastic can do!

    I cannot find anyone that sells them. The guy I shot against a few nights ago made his out of a small piece of ABS plastic, scavenged from a plumbing elbow from Home Depot!

    I WANT ONE!

    (my Meucci jump cue neeeeeeds one! Please help my Meucci jump cue!)

    Check out this link:

    http://www.flash.net/~jlowery/tips.htm

    They claim to have a BCA approved (although the documentation is from 1994) "synthetic" tip. The "black" model is designed for breaking/jumping.

    They say it doesn't mushroom and holds chalk like a leather tip. Now, I wouldn't change tips on my shooting cues for these BUT I just might use one on my jump cue!

    Anyone out there familiar with these tips?

    Where Get Phenolic Tip?

    <blockquote><font class="small">Quote: Kato:</font><hr>I'm having a phenolic tip installed on my break/jump today.

Are the tips that Ken linked us to in the previous reply phenolic?

    I would like to know what synthetic leather is. Is it leather or isn't it. Suppose I make some tips from phenolic and call it synthetic leather.
