How do I stop or slow down a new Moori from mushrooming? I get one and a week later its mushroomed. I try to sand the edges with 750 grit sandpaper but without a lathe its difficult.
I've got a grazer but it doesn't take everything down even sometimes.

Either use a harder Moori Tip or Stop shooting so hard.

Newer Moori's are very prone to mushroom; especially the slow and medium. I went to the quick for awhile and after the initial mushrooming and working down again they did not mushroom anymore.

I can use the same tip for a year or so if I like it. The moori quick began to glaze a little and that is when I comepletely got away from them. I like the Sniper tip from Tiger the best. They play alot like the moori medium and haven't changed since I started using them.

I agree, I am done with Moori's. I just drove my cue tip repair guy crazy going thru 3 boxes of Moori's to find a good one.

Don't use your cuetip to hammer nails.:)

Well I guess I will switch to another tip. Good to hear it just isn't me having a problem with Moori tips.
Why pay so much if they mushroom easily? I might just switch to a Kamui hard tip and if that doesn't work out back to regular tips for good.

I've got mediums on 2 shafts. Initially I broke with them and used a small brass hammer on them to compress them. I've got a jury rigged lathe made from a hand drill to reshape them. It took 3 times but now they are perfect. I only use 220 on the edge now before I shoot and they should last a long time. :cool: I personally think their worth it.

As a previous poster said just let them mushroom and trim them. Try a edge trimmer that looks a bit like a burnisher that the entire tip will fit in. It will be a bit easier to keep it even. Just take your time. I like many others have gone away from them. In my case all layered tips. The just don't seem consistent adn take too long to break in. I like compressed triangles. They hit the same from one to another. Just my opinion. If your stuck on a layered tip I would try a sniper. They seem the most consistent. Good Luck

I have had 3 moori medium's put on my cue (by Guido in BCA vegas) in the last 3 years and none of them ever mushroomed. Several players in our league play with them with no issues either.

I used to play with lepro's that did mushroom and required maintenace.

Sounds to me you need to get better quality moori's.

I wish there was some kind of QA done on these before they ship out, perhaps grade levels? Moori medium grade A,B,C etc...

well i use Moori Mediums and thats about all i install on customer cues with the occasional quicks, I havent had or seen any problems with them mushrooming when i install them. Of course i use a lathe and micropolish the sides of it tip up to 15000 grit. Im the only tip guy in my town so i do alot of them. Of couse its probally how hard your hitting also.

When I install a moori or any layered tip, I initially cut them in a slight wedge. Meaning the very tip is a little thinner than the base, which is even with the ferrule. They do mushroom a little and if they mushroom more than what I have made allowances for, I will wait a while then trim it once and they seem to be fine from then on.

I have no idea if I'm making sense, but it works well for me.

I know just what you mean - and I do it (just a hair). One of the main things to do with Moori's is to make sure you burnish well. Just use a little bit of Pappa's 409 (spit;-)...

THIS WAS THE ISSUE THAT PUSHED ME TO FIND A REPLACEMENT FOR MORRI......

THAT WAS WHEN I FOUND THE WIZARD TIPS, AND I HAVEN'T HAD AN ISSUE SINCE.

P.S. TO STOP THE MOORI FROM MUSHROOMING, I WAS UNDERCUTTING THEM, LIKE 12SQUARED MENTION WHEN I INSTALLED THEM. AFTER THEY MUSHROOMED, I CUT OFF A LAYER OR 2, RECUT THE EDGES, AND REBURNISHED. (I ALSO FOUND THAT USING A TRUE LEATHER BURNISHING FLUID HELPED SLOW THE MUSHROOMING DOWN)
