 The Bunjee Jumper™ Jump Cues

    A good deal of research and work has been invested into the Bunjee Jumper jump cue, making it the best possible legal jump cue for a great price. Specialty jump cues have been around for quite some time. Pat Fleming, the founder of Accu-Stats Video Productions, is generally credited with the creation of the specialty jump cue. Over the years, many varieties of cueing instruments have been invented to enhance the jump shot. Some of these inventions had little in common with traditional pool cue design and led to concerns about maintaining the heritage of the game. Although the Bunjee Jumper has fantastic jump-ability, it is not a magic wand. A fair amount of practice is required to become familiar with its characteristics and the techniques needed to use it effectively.

    Eventually, the Billiard Congress of America (BCA) established standards for jump cues. Since 1998, the BCA rule book specifies that a jump cue must be at least 40 inches in length, be no thicker than 14mm at the tip, and have a tip made of leather or synthetic leather. To maximize performance, your Bunjee Jumper weighs only 8-1/2 ounces (about 240 grams). The Bunjee Jumper meets all of these requirements, and has excellent "jump-ability." With a Bunjee jump cue, it is possible to jump balls with control similar to a normal cue. Through a finely tuned combination of shaft stiffness, light weight, balance, and a hard tip, the Bunjee Jumper allows players to concentrate on making their shot rather than just trying to clear the blocking ball and hoping for the best.

    That's why the Bunjee Jump cue has become standard equipment for so many competing pool players, from begetters to professionals.

BCA Guidelines for Pool Cues

    The Billiard Congress of America (BCA) established standards for jump cues. The BCA rule book stipulates these pool cue specifications:

- Players may bring a maximum of 3 cues to a match.
- Width of tip: 9mm minimum / 14mm maximum.
- Weight: no minimum / 25oz maximum.
- Length: 40 inches minimum / No maximum.
- Metal ferrules may not exceed more than one inch in length.

   The cue tip may not be of a material that can scratch or damage the addressed ball. The cue tip on any stick must be composed of a piece of specially processed leather or other fibrous or pliable material that extends the natural line of the shaft end of the cue and contacts the cue ball when the shot is executed.

   The tip on any cue used to perform a legal jump shot must be composed of either a leather or synthetic leather material.

The Bunjee Jump Cue Tip

    The Bunjee Jump Cue Tip is composed of a leather composite material. This composition provides the hardness necessary to facilitate the jump effect. The leather content provides the ability to hold chalk allowing for the application of "English" or spin to the cue ball, while the synthetic composition allows maximum transfer of energy from cue to ball.

Bunjee Tip Legality

    Our tip conforms to all known rules governing legal cue tips. Because the tip is a crucial part of the performance of the cue we do not recommend the use of any other brand of tip. Also we make no claim for the legality of the Bunjee Jumper when it is used with any other tip but our own.

    The Bunjee Jumper as it is sold has been approved for use by the Billiard Congress of America (BCA), the Valley National Eightball Association (VNEA), the National Nine Ball Tour (Texas Express), The Viking Tour and the BCA All American Tour. Should any tournament director in any of these organizations disallow the Bunjee Jump Cue then they are doing so contrary to their organization's rules at the time of this printing. We ask that you take the time to report any disallowance of the Bunjee Jumper so that we can act accordingly.

Preparation of Bunjee Jump Cue Tips

    Use of a TipPik™ or similar instrument is highly recommended to roughen the top of the tip. Due to the hardness grade, our jump cue tip will not respond well to ordinary scuffers or sandpaper. The performance of the Bunjee Jumper is greatly enhanced when its tip is properly scuffed.

Reported Problems

    Because the Bunjee Jump Cue Tip is very hard, and because each person addresses the cue ball differently, we have had some reported problems of the tip separating from the cue. This is not a major problem, but it is important not to lose the tip. The tip can be reapplied to the jump cue without problem. We recommend using a file and a TipPik™ to roughen the back of the tip so that it will better adhere to the ferrule.
