Should I get a Kamui or a Moori tip for my new cue? - 01-03-2013, 09:03 AM

I am getting a new cue, but that's another thread...
As for the tip, what do you think? I currently have a Kamui Medium and I think it would be better to be softer, so if I go with Kamui I'd go with Soft. What do you think about Moori? What's the biggest difference?

I find the Kamui holds chalk better and for some odd reason I've had more miscues with Moori than Kamui probably for the same reason I've stated.

IMO, stay with kamui. both the s & ss are awesome. if your cue is on the stiff side you might try ss. if the cue is a little more flexible try the soft. i'm pushing the kamui's due to recent experience. haven't used a moori in a while. also, if you can demo one, try the ultraskin. super tip at a killer price.

I used Mooris for years and years. It was finally new tip time so I switched to a Kamui black. Well, I'm back to a Moori and happy happy. The Kamui was glazing all the time and it was back to a Moori. No glazing now.

for a few years the only tip I would use was a Moori medium.

For the last couple years I have been using a Kamui Black soft. I feel like it is a much better tip. I get much better control and feel with it. When I switch back to one of my cues with the moori it just doesn't feel or shoot as well. I know it's just a personal thing but that's my two cents

Another Sniper user here. I've been using them for maybe 10 years now, or whenever they came out. I've never had one mushroom. THe one on my playing cue now I installed 4 years ago, and it still is not mushroomed in the least. The tips feel soft, and hold chalk really well. My favorite by far.

I've used both Kamui and Moori interchangeably for years. I've only used the hard versions of each, and the main difference is that the Kamui is noticably harder than the Moori. I've never noticed a difference in their ability to hold chalk or in the number of miscues.

Sniper on my Falcon, SS360 shaft and getting a cue with a Kamui soft because its the option it comes with.

Kamui is going to have to impress the crap out of me to keep it on my cue...

I think that a good alternative to the Kamuis are the Ultra skin tips made by Tom Hay. After playing with them for three weeks, I have to say that I do like them. I like the price even more.

They both play great when new, but that's as far as it goes with any softer tip. I switch back and forth. I have a Kamui on one shaft and a moori on another. IMO older tips just don't play like newer ones
