UltraSkin/SIB tip poll - 04-24-2017, 04:39 PM

For UltraSkin/SIB tip users only.
Please choose your favorite UltraSkin and/or your favorite SIB tip.

Just getting back into shooting some after taking a 27 year hiatus. Was playing LePros back then as layered tips didn't exist back then. Want to try Tom's tips, but way too many options....hoping members could help me place my first order....
Thanks in advance,
-Loco

I tried, while friendly, not all that helpful as he was giving me comparisons to another layered tip (Moori) I've never tried. Do you have a favorite?

Can't really go by me, but I have used the Ultraskin VS and the Ultraskin Pro. I like the Pro. I am about to try his SIB medium. I'm still working out things with my stroke . I'm using the Mezz EX Pro shaft that is an 12.5 LD. I'm about a low intermediate player. Tom helped me a lot when I told him where I was at skill wise, what I games I play and what type of shaft I was using. So for the price he gets you can afford to try a few.

The last response I got from Tom was:

The UltraSkins have been compared to a Kamui many times. The SIB though new to many has feedback of like an old Moori. All the types are PigSkin. The cutting on the lathe is way different as the feel of the hit is different. They do not compete with each other, more fill a gap. If as a player you like how a Kamui hits I would say give UltraSkin a try. If you liked the hit of the old Moori I would suggest you give the SIB a try.

But I don't have experience with ANY layers tips...


The pricing is great, so I was planning on trying four to five different varieties of his tips. Don't have the time to try all nine varieties, I'm hoping if all the AZB members that use his tips would poll, then it would help me narrow my choices.

Compared to which previous tip(s)? What about it impresses you?
