Assuming you use a seperate stick for breaking. Do you keep your breaking cue tip more flat than your stick you use for regular play? Or do you round your tips on both sticks? I hope I worded this question correctly. It just seems to me you would want a flatter tip on your breaking cue.

    When it comes to jumpbreak cues, it is generally assumed that the flatter you can get the cue tip the better. (depending on the design of the shaft, though, you can only adjust it so flat before the shot feels like jabbing a rock.)

    Check out the blurb from poolclinics.com about the Stinger jumpbreak cue (considered by many to be the best.) It insinuates that the flatter the better:

    "The enormous 'sweet spot' - Because the Stinger technology takes the hit energy to the center of the shaft regardless of where you hit the tip, our tip can be much flatter than typical break cues. The flatter profile causes the Stinger tip to have a huge "sweet spot". You can miss-hit by quite a bit and still get the result you intended. Without the Stinger technology, a flatter tip allows mis-hits, but the results are not accurate."
