    I have a Bunjee J/B cue that works great. I have no problems jumping with it. As far as a break cue, I can't tell one from the other. You should be able to find a price anywhere from 100 to 150 for one.

    I have a $85 Action sneaky pete j/b cue. It works well, the only thing that I regret is it is so light which makes it hard to generate enough force for a jump. I reccommend getting a nice heavy cue.

    Re: jump/break cue

    I play with a Tim Scruggs dn recently got a Player J/B Cue. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. After a few weeks, and a litle practice, I jump much better and it has a solid hit for the break. They price for about $85.00. Hope this helps!

    if you're going to spend $150 and are thinking about getting serious, I seriously suggest that you save up another 100 or so and go with the predator break cue. It's not a jump cue though but I wouldn't break with anything else. For about $150 though, I was surprised by the way the cuetec jump/break felt.

    My husband has the stealth for $89 that we bought from scott lee and he likes it very much. It jumps very well.

    I do have the predator bk break cue and I like it a lot also. We do not have any jump/break cues so do not know if they are as good as getting separate break and jump cues.

If it is light, it will hit the ball then get out of the way. Please Fred or someone let me know if I am wrong...I have the Bunjee and it is the ligthest cue in my bag.

    Maybe this is just my personal opinion but I find it much easier to jump with a heavier stick. It gives it so much more downward force which reduces the accelleration needed.

    Re: jump/break cue

    It doesn't take much force at all to jump, the important thing is to get the cue out of the way. That's why the main reason for jump cues is reduced weight. Some folks prefer to jump with a standard weight cue, and more power to 'em. But the lighter jump cues tend to be much better to jump with once you're accustomed to them -- the reduced mass causes the tip to rebound quicker and get out of the way, where a heavier cue squeezes the CB against the table and causes more of a squirt effect.
