I have both, and I'd have to say they hit real similar.

I'm currently using the Kamui and I kind of favorite it right now.

I think you'll probably like it.

Well it's been a while since I've used a Moori, but I did recently get a Kamui Medium hard put on my shaft.

I've used the Kamui for a few weeks now, and I really like it. Believe it or not, it's also not mushroomed one bit yet -- and I definitely recall Mooris in the past mushrooming after only a few days.

I'm definitely not going back to Mooris, and will probably stick with Kamuis for a while.

Simply put in my opinion: Mooris will play as good as a Kamui once you break them in with a couple 3-4 hour sessions. A Kamui to me feels good right from the start. If I were to put a Moori on, I'd be sure to hit balls with it for a couple of sessions before I'd jump into a serious playing situation. With a Kamui, I can slap one on in the parking lot of a club and walk in and enter a tournament without a worry.

Not sure about Kamui...But I definately like the Moori medium better than a Sniper Med-Soft that I was using.

100% true for the current batch of tips from Medium down to Soft. For Hard Grade, it's the same, you don't need to break it in.

Timmy, I would have to take the Moori hands down. I have played with both tips, and have also installed both tips on my Customers cues. I own and a pool hall, with a retail store, along with a cue repair section. I install more than 50 tips in any given month of year, and number of these are both Moori and Kamui tips.

First, there is no tip that compares to a Moori Tip in it's construction and how it machines. Moori tips are less likely to have delamination problems than any other tips made today, and this is do to how they are chemically treated, the layers are glued, and the layer thickness.

Kamui tips have twice the thickness of individual layers that Moori tips have, in fact just look at these tips side by side with a magnifying glass. In my opinion there is no major difference between Kamui Tips and most layered tips that cost far less.

The closest tip to a Moori Medium on the market today is the Wizard Medium in my opinion, and this is based upon the installation of hundreds of each of these tips.

I think in the end Timmy, when ever people use something to gage everything else by it obvious which tip sets the standard!!!!

Take care Timmy


Best Regards

take care timmy

that is said about as perfectly as possible.

The kamui wouldn't be a bad tip, if they sold for a resonable amount. The tip is not worth what they sell for. The layers are thick, the lamination process is shotty, and half of the mediums that i've installed felt rubber during play, and delaminated during install.

The old moori tips are awesome, but the newer ones aren't as good. Not bad tips, and better than kamui, but still overpriced compared to the older ones, or the wizards.

The wizard tips have replaced the new mooris in my repair bin.

you must be one of the fortunate ones, that hasn't had to throw away entire boxes of triangle tips to find a good one.

I must be one of the lucky ones as I've never had a problem with Kamui tips delaminating, been using them for around a year now and find them to be a far better all round tip than the moori....
