    Dime Radius or Nickel Radius?

    Good so tip shape is something you consider when you install a tip....then your previous comment made no sense but lets go past it. You may hit few racks to figure out what you like, then grow older and try new shape and guess what there's a chance you will like another thing just like any...

    Dime Radius or Nickel Radius?

    I'm in shock by this statement. Nobody here claiming that a shape is a big impediment, but even FOR YOU I'm sure you have one tip shape that you prefer and makes you perform better. I'm 100% certain that when you install a new tip you ask the guy to make it a certain shape, if that's the case...

    Dime Radius or Nickel Radius?

    I posted based purely on my own personal experiment and thats how I feel. I'm unsure of the difference between "More accurate" and "More forgiving" I feel that they're likely to be meaning the same, in other words I feel that when I do the nickel shape i.e. more flatter than a dime (rounder)...

    Dime Radius or Nickel Radius?

    I didn’t want to create new thread but here’s my result on experimenting with this on the same cue/tip Nickel- Pros: Better pocketing ability, more forgiving. I feel that everything goes in with that tip shape. Cons: Can miscue when go offset to draw the ball and overall less spin and less...

    tip technology - hardness at center different from hardness at edges

    I've seen this in some new designed tips for example TOAM fusion and ZAN. Probably some more have designed such tips where the companies states that the tip is engineered to have softer edges and in the middle they are a bit harder. They claim that the design of harder center gives more power...

    JUMP CUE ISSUE SOLVED ?

    Carl Biado just hit a horrible shot snookered himself behind the 6ball, what happened next? absolutely nothing, he came out smelling like roses with the shorty, absolutely no penalty. Nothing happened, just bring shorty and you're out and running again lol.

    JUMP CUE ISSUE SOLVED ?

    You never understood because you don't see how easy it is. either that or probably you've bought an expensive jump cue and you jump pretty well and you think that you acquire a skill. Maybe you don't want to acknowledge the fact that it is easy and that's why you jump well, maybe just maybe you...

    JUMP CUE ISSUE SOLVED ?

    Anyone can miss a safety play, what if a pro missed a safety. I don't see what does that have anything to do with a shorty jump cue which any 10 yr old can use and jump successfully. Even a guy who can't runout a rack can still jump a ball with that easy-shorty. So your point is?

    JUMP CUE ISSUE SOLVED ?

    Then how about I bring 5 different cues with me with different diameter and materials, also different tips and weights of cues. Lets say I come to the pool table with one CF shafted cue and 4 other wooden cue, one is 12.5mm and one is 12.2mm and two with hard tips. Another cue I bring that is 17...

    JUMP CUE ISSUE SOLVED ?

    Not really, with the short-cue you can teach someone to jump in 30minutes and makes the ball. With a stop shot, even a guy who never plays pool I can still teach him. But kicking takes years and still you can't master it. I can't believe you cannot see this, any good pool player will agree...

    JUMP CUE ISSUE SOLVED ?

    So many issues!! I can't believe you're comparing golfer changing bats to the game pool. If someone hooks himself and plays bad position then he brings this silly shorty and just jump and makes it? He isn't penalize for playing a horrible position and then brings a short-cue which even a 13 yr...
