My favorite tip that I ever shot with was an Instroke hard tip. That thing was great.

I've tried a few different tips, but when I started shooting with the Tiger Sniper tip I was done looking for anything else. I believe it's rated as a medium/hard that plays like a soft tip, and it truly does just that. Holds its shape very well and wouldn't need a lot of maintenance, unless you break and shoot with the same cue. With that being said, I do keep up with mine quite often, but it is not due to mushrooming.


Playing Cue: Donnelly '09 w/ Tiger Pro-X Shaft
Break Cue: Predator Sneaky Pete w/ Phenolic Ferrule
Jump Cue: Stealth 3 Piece w/ Phenolic Ferrule
Case: Instroke Leather "Soft" Case

I've been playing with the G2 Soft for the last couple weeks and this tip plays fantastic.

It grips the ball extremely well and it hasn't glazed up any yet. It gives me a lot more feel for the cue ball and gives me better control. The tip doesn't add any unnecessary spin, but will give you all the spin need when you stroke the ball.

Triangle which has been pressed so it's hard and never mushrooms.. Hits great. Can fool with it all I want and never have to worry about layers. Oh yeah, they're a buck apiece.

After trying numerous wonder tips, I went back to TRIANGLE.

NO DELAM.

NO MUSHROOMING.

ALMOST NO COST.

HOLDS CHALK WELL.

CONSISTENCY ALL THE WAY DOWN.

And I don't care what anyone says, a harder tip plays better ... at least for me ... as long as it holds chalk.

I tried a bunch of layered tips and came back to Triangle.
All for the above reasons.
I'm just not going to pay $30.00 or so anymore for a tip.

Its so good my last and only cube was stolen off the table when I went to the bath room.
They left my $1000 cue but stole my chalk, how strong is that?

Either Triangle or Le Pro for me... Le Pro doesn't seem as hard and holds chalk well.

GAMES... http://sites.google.com/site/poolandbilliard/

Recognize a 1/2 ball 30 degree cut and quarter ball angles.
Find angles in front of the OB before picking OB aim points.
SLAP... Stun Line Aim Point to run a CB down the stun line.

Caution: Suggestions should only be used at your own risk.
Paralysis by aiming analysis happens if you think too much.

To play at top speed... You must own the stop shot line.

Triangle, Sniper, and G2. These are the 3 best tips that I have used so far.
