Same exact tip, only difference is the clear has a clear pad. Both will play the same.

That's what I figured just wondering if the clear area on the glue side actually made a bit of difference... Any better tips out there?

Try Kamui Clear Brown M or G2 medium. You might switch for one of these...

G2's are better than Kamui, without a doubt.

I will have to try KI-Tech, hear very good things about those, same with milk duds.

Both are crap actually.
Clear tip has been engineered by kamui for russian pyramid cues which usually don't have any ferrule and requires a fibre pads to be installed. I can't imagine any reasons to install clear tip to a pool cue with ferrule (mb only for ob1/ob2 with wood laminated ferrule), only marketing stuff to sell more tips.

For the price, Ultra-skins are my tip of choice.

Kamui has mentioned that the Clear Pad was to Dummy Proof installations, for those of us that obviously don't know how to Prep a tip properly for an install.

A lame excuse if that is all that you are doing. Just another Marketing Ploy to try and keep your head above water in the ever changing Tip and billiard market in general.

All that is basically happening is that you are gluing a hard piece of material, on top of another piece of hard material, (your ferrule).

I haven't tried one but common sense would tell you that you won't see or feel a huge difference that will jump out at you either way.

You ferrule is 3/4" long. Now it is 25/32nds. Or 50/64ths.

They do look pretty sexy tho. I will give them that much.


To play Pool, is to suffer.
To learn to be a better player, is to find some meaning in the suffering.

Trust me, people fk up an install all the time. Tips don't have to pop off to play like shit.

The marketing angle is a joke, I agree, but the pad does make the install clown-proof.

Yeah, you're spewing total nonsense.

It's to eliminate glue wicking into an improperly prepped tip, that's all. You might argue whether that's necessary, but that's exactly what it does, nothing more nothing less.

Kamui Clear Black - 02-16-2015, 07:13 PM

All my cues had Kamui Black medium tips I had installed 2 years ago and today there's not a Kamui Black tip on any of my cues.........switched to Kamui Clear Black and went down in hardness from medium to soft and super soft.......only way to go with Kamui Clear Black....no glazing problem and the tips play better.....actually far better....than anything else. My Prewitt cue came with original Moori brown tips so naturally I kept those on my cue's shafts otherwise were it not for being original Moori tips, that cue would have Kamui Clear Black in a soft and super soft hardness.....don't be mislead by the anti-Kamui morons on the Forum either. Contact Shooter08 (Tom) who's the Kamui dealer I purchased all my Kamui Clear Black tips from.

My cue maker put a Kamui Clear SS on a cue of mine as he wanted me to try it out. I don't claim to be an expert but I absolutely love it. Several months and no glazing.

To me there is a big difference. When I play with the Clears it seems no matter
where I hit the CB it feels like middle ball. There just a truly solid hitting tip and even
more so with the clear pad.
I've played with Kamui browns as well and the Clear brown mediums hit
outstanding as well.

I have always loved the kamui tips and have only played with them and can't tell any difference between the regular and the clear tips. I just like the clear ones because of the looks. There is a big difference between the brown and the black tips tho. But if your looking to try something different go with the Ki-Tech tips.
