The recently released Stinger by Jerico Cues is distributed by National Billiard Academy and manufactured in USA by Jerry Powers of Jerico Cues. It is claimed by aforementioned distributor that it is "The World's Greatest JumpBreak Cue," and has been a recent hot topic in industry by both consumers, as well as professional players.
What are selling points of stinger? 1) The stinger has two quick-release joints, which can be considered extraordinarily convenient for a jumpbreak cue since you've already got an extra joint that you'll need to fool around with occasionally when making your jump shots. Time efficiency... That's what I'm talking about. Aside from that, who wants to get carpal tunnel while playing pool?
2) It comes in a variety of different exotic woods: bocote, cocobolo, purpleheart, and ebony. The Stinger can also come at a little lower price as a "sneaky pete" version that makes use of maple wood. I happen to find exotic woods very appealing. Many jump/breaks I've seen tend to be a little plain looking, but with fabulous finish on these cues wood really looks good. Which brings me to my next point... finish.
3) Jerry at Jerico Cues has developed quite an impressive finish that looks fabulous AND protects and seals wood from effects of moisture and dirt. It seals to a depth of about a millimeter over whole cue, allowing it to have a great glossy look to it.
4) It is currently being used by multiple pro players around world including: Mike Massey, Kid Delicious, Tony Robles, Jennifer Barretta, Ronnie Wiseman, Chris Lynch, Edwardo Roldan, Bill Meima (2004 World Jumpshot Champion), Sarah Ellerby, Randy Whitehead, Billy Banks, and Lynette Horsburgh (UK Snooker Champion).
