Recently I made a purchase from billiardwarehouse.com I needed some tips, and since I do all the tips at my local hall I always buy boxes of 50. Useualy I buy Triangle, Elkmaster, Le Pro etc.. this time since I have had some issues with some brands pressed lop sided out of the box, I decided to try something else...


While Browsing the site I ran across Sterling brand pressed leather tips..


http://www.billiardwarehouse.com/accessories/cuetips.htm


They Are located at the very bottom of the page..


First impression? These tips are the best I have tried period, I had no idea single leather tips could be so good. The tip is a medium hard, Shapes super easy and mine has yet to mushroom, (installed 3 weeks) I have installed 8 so far, everyone who has tried one has commented on how well they play.. I also noticed an increase in accuracy as well as spin.

I myself like them better than some layered tips, as a matter of fact I have installed these tips on all my cues including my break cue because of the lack of maitenence..

just a heads up..

i think lepro's hit very well if they are pressed before installed.

thanks spindoktor. i've seen those tips around, but never tried one because i didn't know anything about them. guess i'll have to give one a try one day. odd thing though is that they seem to be only available in 13mm?
so far the best single layer tip that i've tried is the triangle. elkmaster would probably be my second, though you really need to press them a little first. lepros are decent if you press them as well.

Thanks Spindoc...I played with LePros for 10 years, then went to Talisman layered mediium....now I use Triangle. Maybe I'll go with these next....

Anyone (or a few of us) wanna go in and split up a box....it will take me forever to use 50!:D

If you like Le Pro or triangle tips try Tad tips. Tads wife make them and they are very good tips. They are more expensive than other non-layered tips but in my opinion they are worth the price. I use a Odrometer on all my tips, and these tips are consistantly the same.

I havent had the chance to try the TAD tips, funny because Tad is my favorite cue maker...lol are these tips available through you? if not where can I find them?

The Sterling tips are impressive, much better IMHO than Le pro or even triangle, They look simular to Le pro, but play alot better, and shape twice as easy, but without wear issues, at first I was leary because a tip that shaped so easy youd expect it to wear pretty fast but this just isnt the case.. Sterling must use only the highest grade leather available.

Maybe sterling could offer these tips in packages of three, Im not sure how to contact sterling, but if anyone has a link or a number, I'll ask..

never heard of Sterling tips before, thanks for letting us know. As for non-layered tips, I've heard tips by Brunswick brand were consistent and nice to play with. At the moment I try different Elk Master tips soaked and pressed. Frankly I suppose those tips are not worse than Sterling (if pressed to equal or comparative condition). Before that I was happy with Triangle and believed it was the best non-layered tip (used to choose the hardest of them from the box).

What do you mean with the Elk Master tips soaked and pressed?
Im rather new to pool.

And do the Elk Master tips last long because they are really cheap.

Thanks for the tip on the um.. tips. I was just looking at mine a few days ago and it's almost due for a replacement. It's the one that came stock on the Samsara, but I've been breaking with it, so needs a replacement sooner than I thought it would. I'll order some and give them a shot.
