Thank you! Kenny didn't you find it odd that the hard was softer than the soft?

Thanks Kevin for correction on BLACK KING TIPS harness number. I was doing that before my dinner time and type in some wrong numbers. Sometime when it come to foods you just think of anything else but a good meal This number might mean something to someone but for me it just some numbers. Some cuemakers and some cue repair guys would use some tool like DUROMETER to test those tips and write them on their tip boxes for reference point. I bought this tool because I want to try it see good it work with those numbers. IMOP those numbers mean nothing to me other then have to install those tips and play with see it feel and how's it work when you are playing pool.
