The SIB tips are a little soft but they're still good tips and I haven't heard any complaints about them.
I have a couple left and would have no problem putting them on my own cues.
In fact I put them on a lot of my own cues and they're fine tips
if someone's looking for a tip that's a little softer I highly recommend the s i b


player......Josswest, Schon, South West, Schick, Horn
player......Tad, Murray Tucker, Dave Jones Jim Buss
player.......Kersenbrock, Bluegrass, Judd, Steve Klein
breaker....Hillbily Smacker
jumper.....see breaker
shooter....Sig Sauer P226 357
cutter.......Spyderco-Massad Ayoob

i dont know anything about your tips but i applaud anyone willing to let the sparks fly uncensored in public about their products.

what i didnt like was a giant ad and when i clicked to see about your tips it wanted me to apply for a login. you need to change your customer catching ways. that turned me way off.

I apoligise if this happened, it was not my intent and I am still not sure it did that, but if you say so. I was asked by Facebook if I wanted to promote the post to all that liked my Facebook. I did, it cost me to do it. If that is the impression it gave I am very sorry again. If I was looking for anything out of it I would have done a sale or link to my Web Site.It will be turned off in one minute.

I have pulled it off and edited this post to let you know.

Sorry to cause you a problem

Love the ultraskin tips, been using them on my cues for awhile now.

I think he was referring to clicking the banner on your posts and having it lead to here: http://www.layeredcuetips.com/index1.php

Again, sorry, I would not give out a link to my AZB Pricing page on purpose. I did not think it would do anything but bring people to this AZB page which could also bring new members into AZB.

Sorry

Ultraskins are the only tips I use. The Medium is perfect. I even put them on my snooker cues. Shoot, even my friends have them on their snooker cues.

I'm glad you posted as I need to order more soon.

Hate to be ‘that guy,’ but your post kind of rubbed me the wrong way. I’m really not sure what the purpose is to be honest. You initially mention that you don’t feel you’ve had an ‘above board’ complaint (whatever the hell that means) about yourself or tips in the seven years you’ve been selling them. I find that incredibly naive/arrogant. And if that is indeed the case then someone included in this thread said that they stopped using them because they glazed over, so if that was what you were looking for...mission accomplished.

Also, I dont understand the relevance of including your recent medical issues in the thread. Please don’t color me unsympathetic. I have had many major surgeries myself. Just don’t understand why you chose to type that unless maybe your recovery had an impact on your business/customer service and you felt the need to address that? Again, the people who only have this thread as a point of reference have no idea what you are talking about and you have done little to clarify.

Lastly, it seems as though you are threatening the entire community with withdrawing your product with the ‘this is where it all started and might end’ comment (my memory of your quote as I didn’t quote your post to pick it apart word for word). Just seems wrong to punish the many to address the few. It’s obvious the majority of people like your tips. And like many have said you aren’t going to please everyone. I guess I just don’t understand what you are trying to do here beyond making me no longer be one of your customers.

Just feels like you are looking to have it out with someone you felt wronged you and if that’s it, more power to you. I just don’t think it’s worth doing at the expense of some of your most loyal followers.

Why care what a few think? No one makes every tip perfect. I personally have had your tips on two of my shafts. One was perfect one was not. No complaints from me till you now bought it up.

I first started using Ultraskin tips about 5 or 6 years ago, and I've had to replace them exactly twice, once on each of my two shafts. They perform every bit as well as far more expensive tips, and in my experience are quite a bit more durable. I can't even begin to imagine why anyone would trash a product that's a 10 on a 10 scale by any reasonable standard. Keep up the good work.

Yes tip paint is a large part of it, but when the customer has it in their head that the 'K-tip' is the best there is, then anything else and will be a tough sell. I experienced the glaze over myself, but I chalked it up to experience and did not ***** and complain. Maybe I had a bad batch... never know. But he does have a following, and most people like them.

These forums can be very '*****y' at times and sometimes people are not diplomatic about their opinions. As a former cue maker , I got tired of defending myself online like Tom is doing. I commend Tom for trying to stay onto of things and keep his reputation intact. It's a difficult thing to put yourself out there and pray the public does not roast you over something small. Keep up the good work Tom

Wireman, please post your email address so I may check up your buy, I offer a money back guarentee.as it seems you did not complain then,in a PM or Email but you are complaining now for the world to see.

I don't see any transaction reports from me or this K thing you mention.

You do not seem to have many posts for a member since 2013 or where you are from, I used the option to hit on your name and found it interesting where your posts were
