The Heavy Hitter is a solid rock maple cue. It has a phenolic ferrule/tip and has a Radial joint. We do offer a tip upgrade to an Odega for $35 upon request.  The Odega tip is a 9 layered leather tip impregnated with phenolic and is installed on top of the existing tip.  They are weighted anywhere from 22 oz to 25 oz with our adjustable weight system.
