Tips pros use... Surprise ! - 09-26-2019, 04:33 AM

I was watching the Dream Challenge that just took place in Russia and that's what I gathered :

Corey Deuel is using an Elkmaster
Sky Woodward is using a Technodud, which is basically a pressed Elkmaster
Shane van Boening was using an Elkmaster at least until recently, now possibly a Sniper
JJ stated that most layered tips he has tried were ok for the first couple of layers, then they harden and feel dead. He prefers single layer tips.

I think this will be surprising for many people.

What's your point? I think EM tips suck. Always have. Are we to base our tip choice on what others use? When i saw SVB in DCC a few years back he was using a Kamui Brown hard. First i've heard of him using an EM.

You either play with a tip you like, or you play with one that is supported by your sponsor.

Why the aggressive language? If you want to know my thoughts there are nicer ways of asking. And really, you're censoring suck?

JJ did say that the Elk Master that Corey uses is a snooker tip and different than the Elk Masters that they sell here in the states.

I'm almost certain he was wrong. Snooker tips come in max 11mm and Corey is using a 12+ mm shaft. There is no reason for him to be using snooker tips. Also, Elkmaster is made in the US.

don't forget Earl in the Elkmaster discussion as he has used them pretty much exclusively during his career.

Does that make Elkmaster a great tip for you (or me)? It's very subjective but I think it's safe to say that some guys have achieved great things using them.

best,

Not the Elkmasters, they come in 9,10 and 11 with the 10 being the most common.

Thanks for the link, that's good to know. On that page there is a video of Ronnie visiting the factory and that reminded me he's been playing with regular Elkmasters most of his career.

Efren always said his tip was an Elkmaster.
