I bought like 9 Talisman mediums on azb about a year ago and I looked at what I had left and noticed the one says talisman M and USA underneath the M. The others don't and there is another one that is a darker color than the rest. I was never satisfied with these tips. They seemed to glaze easy and lacked the elastic feeling. Could they all be fake? They came pre domed.

I bought these from a member on here probably like a year ago. I'll have to look into it more if you would want the exact member name.

Agreed

I have some that are over 10-years old, and they look the same except for the "USA"
and the condition.

Well you can get them pre domed or normal...the pics aren't the best. The light over the pool table was making it hard to picture them. Yea so the one on the left is darker than the others, and that other one says USA, the others don't. Just was wondering about he USA because they are made in Thailand I thought?!?

The USA tip looks identical to the other two lighter colored ones. Just wondering if why I didn't like them was because maybe they are fakes?

Some of mine are domed, some aren't.
I doubt they are fakes, I bought some of mine on AZ for $3.00 each
The USA could be later, different plant, or country that has different export laws, no idea really.
The general consensus on Talisman is not great, but I had one of their water buffalo mediums and really liked it.

Not a fan of talismans.

Ok so I got confirmation from Tony at Talisman through email:

Hi Tim,

Sorry to hear you are having problems. May I ask where you purchased the tips from? This would help in finding out if the tips are genuine. BTW we did produce tips for a customer that was marked with USA.

Look forward to hearing back from you.

Kind regards,
Tony.


So that fixed my concern about the USA printed on one of the tips.
