Searing Tips review - 02-07-2017, 07:12 PM

Was pretty surprised there was not a thread here about them, but I'm sure there are some in the main section.

Just had a Soft Dennis Searing tip put on an OB shaft.

Played for about 3 hours with it just banging around and 4 gambling sets (to make sure I focused LOL).

Is it Soft like a Kamui Black or like a Soft k-tech (Renfro) tip, no. It feels like a Medium Kamui Black. I actually wish I played with the standard Kamui to compare it to, I have a felling it will be close to a Soft Kamui standard tip.

Hit feels good, but not great for my taste. It's a bit too firm for a Soft IMHO. I like my soft tips to be more like an eraser and this one was firmer, I did not feel the same give on the hit as I did with several other soft tips.

So it's a step behind a Kamui Soft Black for me.

i have to say i am the exception (see my thread in the main forum )
but for the first few hours the precision soft was the greatest tip ever regarding the amount of draw/ spiin i coudl generate
after that it it started glazing alot and i eventually cut it off for a g2 soft
again my experience is not what many others have reported

What kind of chalk do you use?

I recently had a Precision medium installed and haven't made a final decision on my impression, but one observation is that I find the medium to be soft and so far it has required regular reshaping.

There is nothing wrong with Master's. Good stuff. As for the tip thanks for the review. Like everything a tip is a personal choice.

Playing with a medium and like it. Some minor mushrooming, but that is easy to fix.

I like them better then Moori, Tailsmen, any Zan or Kamui..........
I play with a Medium and it has just gotten better with age!
Try using the new Taom Chalk, it is amazing, better then Kamui .98 and Zero Mess on CB or Table!

Had the same experience with the soft. Cut it off. Have 2 other shafts with mediums, and they are fine, but seem hard to me for a medium tip.
