love this break stick 20/11/2012Tiger TIGIB Icebreaker Break Jump CueI've had this stick for about a year now and it has really performed well as a jump/break cue. I added the samsara leather break tip which was well worth it. It has shown no wear and my whole pool team uses it(so it has had a lot of breaking miles put on it in a year.) That being said everyone on my team who uses it now has a much more consistant break. As a jump cue it gets the job done for the occasional jumper. The shaft ferrule and tip are very sturdy(it is very good for players with alot of power behind there break.) I tried a few other break cues that weren't as pricey as this one and i cracked the ferrule in under 6 months on all of them(I'm 6'2'' and have a pretty powerful break.) I would recommend this cue for intermediate to advanced players who are looking for a cue that can do the work for them on the break. Also it looks really cool in the sunlight(it looks black to the naked eye but when u get it in the sunlight there is actually a clear coat covering its deep blue core.) You will not be disappointed with this purchase!I would recommend this product to a friend.
