I took my cue to Triple Nines in Laurel, MD last. I had several miss cues. I showed my tip to a cue maker who was there. He noticed right away that I had a layered tip. He said that layered should be shaped on a lathe at at least 35rmp. And that trying to sand the shape on a layered tip was hard to do, and the tip was vulnerable to miss cue.

I tried scuffing the tip and I didn't miscue after that.

Anybody else have experience in shaping a layered tip?

I do all of mine by hand. Most times that I miss cue, is because I didn't stay down on the shot and make a smooth stroke

Depends on the brand and model. The several Kamui Soft Black tips I used have all had a bit of a mushroom on them and needed a bit of upkeep. I had an old school Moori back in the day and I think that one also mushroomed, the new Mooris did for sure and also played like doo doo. So far the only tip I have used that needed 0 touching to fix anything is the Ki-Tech one I got from Renfro.

Installing a layered tip is often different than a regular one, and the makers always provide instructions, the authorized resellers and installers should know exactly what tricks certain tips need. I had a cue maker install a Kamui Black for me once, that fell apart, he got another one from Kamui along with some notes and it never happened again. The Ki-Tech tip also had some special instruction although it's a single layer but treated, the cue maker followed those and that tip has been perfect ever since.

The Pocket Lathe put scratches and dings on my shaft. I took my Joss cue to Dan Janes. He made all the repairs at no charge. He suggested I give the Pocket Lathe to someone I don't like.

How do you repair a mushroomed tip?

Assumes that a mushroomed tip is a defect and harms your shooting.
Unwarranted assumption.
Illogical conclusion.

Peter Ebdon won the 2006 World Snooker Championship.
Here is a photo of his tip. :D
