The 2.0 may be a good tip, I have not seen one, but when the 1.0 fails critically at 750 pounds of pressure all I can tell you is that material was NEVER meant to be on the end of a pool cue.... As soon as I get a v2.0 I'll do the test on video and we can see if it has the same prolems.... Can test the elasticity and even tell you what that reading is if it actually lives thru the pressure test......

How you likeing the Cuetec? Surely that's your goto Cue since it's good enough for Shane.....

Taom Tip shattered!! - 05-01-2015, 10:30 AM

Just had my Taom tip installed and on my second break the Taom shattered. My opponent was hit by the shrapnel/shards. The break shaft had a new Samsara break tip on it but I was anxious to try the new gimmick tip so I cut off the Samsara. I'll continue using my other break shaft with a good old White Diamond tip.


Regards,
Rip

The pros play pool... No they have no idea the differences in thermoset plastics.. Thermoplastics or Plastics in general... Nor do you if I were to hazard a guess because if you did you would understand.... I do not expect pro players to be materials engineers... They were likely told they had been tested and were great... bzzzt they were not and they were not....

Post Hey Refro! Where can I buy one of these Taom Tips? - 08-17-2015, 01:31 PM

I'm no materials engineer, I’m an Aerospace Engineer but I’d bet my MIT diploma, that the
Delta vectors ascribed to in the aforementioned thermoset plasticizes gradients (TPG) could be ascribed to the percentile of this new thermoplastics stated at this juncture as “Mika”, obviously a derivative of Formica® Laminate along with a composite such as “Orcollo” with wafer-thin slices of Naugahyde® (an expanded polyvinyl chloride plastic composite).
I’m afraid the Refro gentleman from Utsville may have suffered a blow on the noggin from a bag of 250 Taom tips, by jumping to the conclusion that just because a 1.0 fails “critically” (not sure how to quantify a “critical” failure mode.) and then fails to identify exactly which end of the billiard cue that it was never meant to be attached too, simply because anomalies where observed at 750 Lbs or ( or 340.194277 Kilogram’s) How was this pressure applied? Pressure is usually expressed as a force per unit area. Yet no area specs are entered into the equation. Based on the original Torricelli barometer design, one atmosphere of pressure will force the column of mercury (Hg) in a mercury barometer to a height of 760 millimeters. A pressure that causes the Hg column to rise 1 millimeter is called a torr (you may still see the term 1 mm Hg used; this has been replaced by the torr. "mm Hg" is commonly used for tip hardness identification pressure measurements). Yet a Kamui Medium is sufficiently harder than a Tiger Medium (Onyx). My supposition is the process for measurement is wide of the mark, a simple deflection versus load applied calculation should suffice, using a dial indicator and a pressure gauge which shape is the exact radius of a cue-ball. I’m looking forward to your 750 Lbs crush test video, maybe for fun you can do a watermelon or a can of Ham as well, like David Letterman used to do in the 80’s! Perhaps for the 2.0 model you can freeze a Taom Tip to 199.816667 Kelvin (That’s -100°F folks) , and then drop it into a pot of water with a temperature of 210°F, that being the Elevations range from just over 800 feet (240 m) along the riverfront to just over 1,000 feet (300 m) on various hilltops in West Knoxville, with the downtown area resting at just over 900 feet (270 m) where Mr. Utsville and his band of single layered boys are from. But my guess is he is really closer to Maryville, just by studying his syntax.
Someone please send me a Taom Tip before my head implodes!

Any other reviews on the Taom as a jump tip?

Jumping with Taom is almost too easy. Unless the balls are very close together, I dont bother screwing together my jump cue, I jump with my break cue.
The cool thing with Taom is that you can jump using minimal elevation, and thus drawing the CB after the jump if needed
Sorry for the video quality, but heres a break with Taom tip:

I might like you better if we slept together...

It's quite good as a jump tip installed on a Mezz Pro R shaft. Takes nearly no effort to jump full ball from a ball distance away with just the shaft.

I've not yet found the need to replace the stock tip on my Mezz Air Drive, but if I were to be in the market, I wouldn't hesitate to put on another Taom.

Pricey yes, but worth it to not spend any more time thinking about different options; my search ends here.

I use a Taom on my Predator jump cue, works like a charm. I agree regarding the jump shots I'm able to do with the Taom on my Mezz Power Break. It's a solid product.

Wandering a bit off topic maybe, but I just installed a green Taom on my BK3, looks nice atleast in my eyes


Will see how it breaks tomorrow, I'm letting the glue set properly (24h+) before breaking with it.

Both of these are version 2.0

As far as your supposition, wear it out and test away... I have a 750lb press which is the smallest one we have... According to Bob Jewett that compression force should be similar to the force applied by approximately a 27 mph break... So we do a cycle test and watch the tips fracture before we get to 100 compression cycles...

As you are an engineer and not a pool player I would hazard a guess you likely couldn't break at 27mph if your life depended on it so likely the Taom or the new Zento out of Germany may last you a long time...

Call Joe Blackburn and ask him about them. He will no longer install them because they keep exploding.. That is from his experience and not my tests btw......
