Joss 15/06/2011Joss JOS20 Pool Cue19 1/2 oz. and everything else was standard. The triangle tip that it came with is hard which is ideal for me because I break with this stick but is soft enough to shoot with as well. The quality in the built of this stick is flawless throughout. If you have not used a cue with a metal joint then you should know that this will have more deflection than your softer joints (ie: ivory poly plastic or wood.) I would recommend to anyone looking for a solid hitting cue. I will be buying another JOSS in the near future.I would recommend this product to a friend.
