ept rules
Date: May 10, 2006 05:09AM
just noticed a funny rule:
2.0 Cue Stick Specifications All cue sticks must meet the following specifications: a. No shorter than 53" and no longer than 63" b. No lighter than 15 ounces and no heavier than 25 ounces. c. Only leather tips on ALL cues (no phenolic tips)



i know quite a lot of players on the irish tour use phenolic tips.....well thats my sledgehammer out da window

I'm sure these are the same specific rules that the IPT are using.

The BK2 has a phenolic tip as I was goin to buy one.

But I have been told they are bringing out a leather tip version soon for IPT players.

I would like to inform you all that I spoke to Daryl himself about this and it was something that I had consideredsmiling smiley

If your break cue has a 1 piece ferrule/tip, you can cut the tip portion off the furreule and have it flattened, in order to make it so that you can fix a leather tip on the end and have a pheonolic ferrule, but there are some break cues that have a regular ferrule and a pheonolic tip, and in that case, you just replace the pheonolic tip with a leather one smiling smiley, but if you're gonna do this, I recommend that you don't cut off any more than 5mm off the end, that way you won't lose any of the break cue's original length smiling smiley

I actually like this rule because not only does it make the game a bit more difficult, but it also means that the escaping from a good safety will truely depend on good knowledge and accuracy smiling smiley

I hope that the break cue info helps a little smiling smiley

Take care everyne smiling smiley
