I really wanted to try a phenolic tip when I bought this cue. I wasn't disappointed with the hit. I can crush the balls on a break. I need to make sure you stay close to center ball hit with a phenolic tip and chalk the cue because its like hitting the cue ball with a rock. Its easy to misscue otherwise. Its funny to watch other people try to use it to break after they see me use it because you have to practice with the cue a bit before bringing it to leagues to break. The cue jumps balls awesome. Where I could jump partial balls with my regular cue I can pop over full balls six to eight inches away no problem fairly consistently. This cue made learning to jump balls fun and easy. Sadly it warped on me a bit within the first year. I didn't store it perfectly but I did have it in my case with my playing cue and my viking is fine. So store it well. The phenolic tip isn't just glued on its binded on with some wrap material to the ferrule. So getting your tip to stay on the cue wont be a problem and it has a shiny pattern graphics to it. I only say this because I have tried to glue a phenolic tip onto a cue before and several different glues wouldn't get the tip to stay on a cue. Worth saving yourself the time and effort to get a ready to go phenolic tipped cue than try to put one on yourself.
I would recommend this product to a friend.
