    • Finally, 5 stars for a great product at a fair price.
      I just put this tip on my break cue replacing the stock Le Pro. It installs easily, but takes a little extra effort and time to trim and shape. Well worth the effort so far, because it plays very well, gives the CB action I want on the break and seems to be very consistent.
      I have a strong break, so thinking I don't need the hardest tip and looking for a little more CB action.
      Highly recommended, if it doesn't hold up I'll let you know.

      cheers

    • This wax does a very nice job on my shafts. It works just as well as the other wax, but you get twice as much for a couple of dollars less. Also, this is great for burnishing tips, especially new ones.
      I apply it at least weekly after a thorough cleaning. It seals the shaft wood well to protect from the elements and stains and polishes the ferrule very well.
      I don't use messy powder or a glove, just this wax and a towel during play.

      cheers

    • 4 stars, 'cause it ain't perfect or free.
      This shaft is a noticeable step up from a plain maple shaft. If you like lots of feedback and that traditional feel, but want improved radial consistency and a little stiffer hit, this shaft does all that.
      I too used one on Lucky and Star cues and was very happy. The only issue with that is getting a good match with the joints. Now using a G series cue with Kamui Black Med tip and very happy indeed.
      Planning to install a softer tip on the old one for 1 pocket play, the Kamui for everything else.
      Note that both the Kamui and stock Everest tips take quite a while to compress and get consistent. Even after 6 months of league and local tourny play the Everest seems to keep getting better.

      rack 'em sucka...errr...my friend

    • works well, but 4 stars because it's a dollars worth of plastic.
      It does make finishing new tips much easier, but should cost @ $10.
      If you don't have or need a real lathe, this is pretty good. It takes a little effort and practice, but worth it if you have the need.

      enjoy!

    • 4 stars because it's a .50 cents worth of plastic.
      Basic joint protectors, work well, but should cost @ 2.50!

      'nuff said
