I have a tiger hard laminate tip on right now. It plays well but I may go back with a milk dud.

I had been using snipers for the past year, however they all tend to glass-over causing many many miscues. They perform well after re-roughing the tip but go back to glass status within an hour or two.

I just put on some Med/Soft Kumai's and so far love the feel. Only time will tell how well they hold up.

never had the glassing over issue with the snipers. i used snipers for a long time and they always performed well. i recently went back to single layer tips, using triumphs now and they play great.

Moori mediums on my Jim White and Paul Mottey's and Sniper on my Tim Scruggs. Like them both.

Snipers on everything. And anyone who said that their installation was difficult could have been off base. I've put on quite a few and they are glue, put on the lathe and shape. Hold chaulk very well. No glazing. Much better than Moori's.

life!

Moori Mediums are very good . . . and there's always my old standby - The LePro's from tweeten . . . my cue builder / maintenance dude swears by 'em . . . Mike Gulyassey posted that the Moori's may get hard to find . . . if so, I ain't payin' $20 - 30 bucks for one. Back to the $2 LePro from the good old USA . . .

I have heard good things about the Sniper's . . . might give them a go as well.

Tiger Everest. Made in the USA. Great tip decent price, long lasting. Only thing I do is put chalk on it. Really holds its' shape and is the hardness that fits my style of play.

Sniper on one stick
Kamui Medsoft on the other
Had the sniper for a while and love it, just put the kamui on, so far so good but only time will tell.

Switching back to triangles after trying Snipers, Morri Med., Hercules Med.

I miscue too often with layered tips.

I miscue too often with layered tips.

I have a sniper on one shaft that plays pretty well...Some Moori H's on another few - but I must have ran across a particularly nice batch of triangles, 'cause these things just play great.

I think I may switch over to them. I'm also fond of Talisman M-H. Those are two tips that are tough to beat for the money.

I started using Moori's about 5 years ago and never looked back. My favorite are the medium...they play great, if fact the best I have ever hit with.

I used Triangles for years, then LePro, then switched to Moori, then Sniper. I love snipers. They last a long time, and they hold chalk well. A friend of mine told me about Hercules and I must say that I might go to these on everything now. (I have Hercules on two of my shafts, and Snipers on the other shafts.) All the great aspects of the Sniper but they seem to last longer and not mushroom. The snipers did mushroom after a while and I would have to do more maintence to them than the Hercules.

My breaking tip is a hard water buffalo single layer tip, and I won't change that for anything cause it lasts long, doesn't mushroom, holds chalk, and breaks like a mother........

Talisman medium. They feel just right to me, and hold the dime shape pretty well. I have reshaped my tip just once after six months. Back when I played a nickel shape, I didn't reshape at all.

I use Triangle or Moori on pretty much anything I own, but have been trying out the BlackJack tips on my Carmelli for the last month.
Still can't decide if I like it or not......
Loved the Talisman M w/b on my Nova though

Any Hard tip that is installed right will do for me. I have Moori, Kamui, Molavia, WB, Talisman WB, Pressed Elk Master, Pressed LePro, Sumo, etc... on my various shafts and they all play great. They are all trimmed down to about 5/16" thinkness right from the start and dime shaped.

I was using Morri Quick but when I switched to a Z2 shaft they were too soft. Playing with a Talisman Pro X hard and I really like the combination of the Z2 with the Talisman Pro X hard.

I've had snipers for the last year and a half (on the Varney and the Carmeli) and absolutely love them. I also love triangles :)

Off topic,
but...
Just FTR...

I am in no way affiliated with, nor do I distribute "BlackJack tips"... the only tips I have for sale are instructional.

I have no idea how these tips perform, how long they last, what they are made of, or what they look like, sorry.

My instructional tips work well for most that are willing to put forth the effort. I have received literally hundreds of requests over the past few months asking about "BlackJack Tips", so I hope this post takes care of the confusion.

To stay on topic, after talking to Corey Deuel last year about his pancaked tip, we had a long conversation about LePros. He uses a LePro till its almost gone, I have always felt the same way about them, the older and flatter it gets, the more I like it!

Everest on my playing cue. Stingray on my breaking cue. I also like the Talisman Pro med. and Sniper.
