Tip Recommendation - 12-24-2009, 02:17 AM

Hey All,

So here is it, my Ginacue will be done VERY soon (can't wait - I'm so excited). I know Ernie puts on Moori Medium tips BUT here is where I need you all:

I have a soft yet smooth stroke, and use a lot of english to move the ball around. I also RARELY hit a ball hard, unless I don't have a choice. I'm also the type that will pay for QUALITY (in this case it has to both be high quality AND work with my style of play but most importantly BE CONSISTENT). I've read the Kamui site describing the different tips (not the new Black ones), but there really is no guidelines about which tips would work the best for every player.

So the question becomes this - What tip should I go with? Moori Med? Kamui (regular line Med Soft or Soft- seemed to match up well)? Kamui Black (NO CLUE HERE cause there was no info available)?

So I'm here at the Moori/Kamui crossroads..... I don't want to have to buy some of each and keep having my cues re-tipped at $10 a pop till I find a tip that works with me. I would much rather have a good starting point and only have to make minor adjustments to the rest of my equipment for consistency of reaction off the tip at least.

Lets face it..... we all play for fun and have fun while we play, but if equipment can be dialed in just a little more, we would all play better..... Or at least would be working in harmony with our cues.

Thanks, and am looking forward to hearing your feedback.

if you are crying about the tip on a gina....

you are worrying about the wrong end of the cue....

it's operator error at that point..

just sayin....


The Truth: If you have a stroke the gear don't matter... If you don't have a stroke the gear won't help..

Sorry guy.... ya missed what I was saying. I'm more after the difference between the tips - Super Soft, Soft, Med, Med Hard, Hard, and Extra Hard. Which ones are best suited for someone with soft speed and a lot of english on the ball. Not crying about the tips used on a Gina.... come on now.

I know the pros are useing hard and extra hard tips, I have a cue that I have Hard tips on, but that's also a cue I played with a bit and was trying some different tips out on. My better cues, those are the ones I play with and would like to be able to get the fine and fines english with and do it w/o much effort (I'm only going to assume that the tip plays a fair to good part of that).

well you have to think about other things too, if your fundamentals arent sound then i wouldnt suggest an extra hard tip you will miscue ALOT, it also depends on how good your stroke really is it doesnt matter how hard you hit if you have a really good stroke you can get away with a med tip, johnny archer uses a triangle wich is a harder tip wich i used for 5 years and loved, scott frost uses a moori med wich alot of my local top players i know also use, i recently switched to moori hard and am learning that with a moori it will harden more after a couple months so you will have to keep fine tuning it until it finally sets, all in all i would recomend triangle or med moori but thats just my opinion

You want a Sniper. Just keep going a bit past Ernie's place till you end up in Burbank, then go to Tiger and have a Sniper installed. Try it before you buy it

i play the same kinda game you do. i have a soft smooth stroke and english the ball around. i used to use triangles, but have recently, in the past few years switched over to a medium tip and find it works better for me for this style of play.

i've tried about everything under the sun; kamui, sniper, everest, milk dude, hercules, talisman, etc... as far as the ones your asking about, the kamui medium felt like a brick and constantly miscued, i've also tried sniper and it seemed to glaze over easily. i finally settled down on everest and they work really well for me.

Ask 100 different players what tip they like and you'll get 100 different answers. It's that subjective. I've tried a bunch but I keep coming back to a Moori. Played with mediums but my McDermott I-3 shaft came with a Moori soft and it really fits my style of play (which, by the way, is similiar to yours). So, if I were you, I'd go with Ernie's choice and have him install the Moori medium .

You are looking in the wrong place for the answer. Call Ernie. Talk to him. He in the maker. He installs the tip. Tell him how you shoot and go with his recommendation.

Put a triangle on. Many of the pros are using them but can't say. For obvious reasons.
It's a very consistent tip. Give it a try. You might fall in love. I did..............
