Ultimate Tip Tool - 11-26-2016, 10:08 PM

Can anyone here give me a personal review on the ultimate tip tool? A friend said a couple of local billiard suppliers told him they would not recommend because of numerous damages to the ferrules brought to them.

I ask because it appears to me it would be a good multi functional product. Appreciate any feedback on this matter...

i found that using it was awquard and i had to be very carefull to not damage the ferrule
as for shaping i find all the dome shaped taper tools like the willard or this ones shaping feature where you put the tip into the bowl of the shaper and spin the cue stick
again cumbersome to use
i really like the last4ever tip tool
although more expensive its easier to use for me and does a great job
check it out
go thru the site and watch the videos on how to use the tip tool
good luck

"i really like the last4ever tip tool"

X's two.

The Last4ever tip tool has ended up being the only tool in my cue case. I believe I have every tip tool known to man at home, LOL, but this is the perfect one for me. (Pro dime radius model)

If not used correctly when burnishing the sides of the tip, because of the leverage, you can pop the tip quite easily. The abrasives wear out and need replacing often.

Pure junk. Will f*^k-up your shaft/ferrule. If you have to do your own stuff spend the $$ and buy Porper tools.

Yes, I agree! for $12 I will give it a spin. Give me a few weeks and I will post my 1st review. Then, I shall post another when I have had a chance to use the product over a longer time period to help me verify if any damage or quality issues appeared.

I have used Ultimate almost exclusively for a couple of years. Just got the Last 4 Ever tip tool and I think the Last 4 Ever is the best tool there is. No question in my mind. I don't think I will ever need another tip tool.

Thanks for the invite. I'd enjoy it. We'll see. I am still working. Just switched to a Triangle tip that was pressed. The tip tool works great on a non layered tip. Just one pass on the dime shaper and it roughs up in seconds. Still like the Ultimate Tip Tool burnisher though.

Pressed tip?.. is it dampened and pressed in a vice. Is some kind of jig needed or simply press the bare tip in a vice.

I believe it was simply pressed in a vice for a couple of hours to prevent mushrooming. It also hardens an already hard tip. Takes chalk beautifully. I am getting used to it now as the hit is a little different than I am used to. Got tired of working the layered tips and having them separate as you get down to a layer. The triangle costs about a buck. Take that Kamui!
