Converting cheap cue to break cue

Converting cheap cue to break cue

I have had a Viper Sterling cue for a few years now, and it has served me fairly well. I upgraded to a new cue several months ago and am now thinking of having a dedicated break cue. Instead of buying a whole new cue, would I be able to just replace the tip on the Viper to take on the new role, or would it be more complicated than that? Also, would it even be worth the time/trouble?

Thanks in advance

    If you like the weight and balance of the older cue, then all you need is a harder tip. A dedicated break cue can get away with a XX hard tip (about 92+ on the durrometer).

    Also note: BCAPL has outlawed phenolic tips, and mandated natural materials (i.e. leather). And as of June 1 2010, the penalty for scratching on the break goes from ball in kitchen to ball in hand.
