Another vote for Dawgduds.
Been using them for the last couple years with NO complaints.
They play like layered tips but much more consistently imo.

dudding a tip - 09-25-2019, 12:26 PM

I know there are other places to get the info and no doubt a youtube video or two out there but here is a nice overview of dudding a tip, goes a little into why and how. The site is based in England and sells things too. I am not recommending them or anything but this article. They have a domed single tip tool but they sell them by the pound, always confusing!

I have a Meucci Black Dot shaft, and I can't find a tip i'm satisfied with, either to hard, or to soft.

I recently decided to try some Ďmilkdudí-type pressed Elkmasters, after I discovered my ancient stock of LePros had dried out over the years, required constant sanding/tapping, and STILL resulted in frequent miscues.
Ordered a bunch from multiple sources, so canít recommend a specific seller. Pricey (compared to LePros by-the-box), and inconsistently shaped, so only selected a few to install.
First reaction...hit like a wet noodle (compared to my overly-hard LePros). And, they mushroomed initially, and required some burnishing to reshape. BUT, now that they are broken in, the hit is more solid (I even break 8-ball with them), and the mushrooming has ceased. I hardly ever need to sand or tap, and they stay fuzzy and hold chalk well. Should wear well as a result. Iím satisfied, and would order them again.

Old Champion, or somewhat newer water buffalo. You can't go wrong with either.

All the best,

Triangle. I know some people say they have problems with them but I’ve been using them for the last 3 years and have only had one bad tip. For $1.50 they are as good as any tip on the market. Also check out the thread in the ask a cuemaker section and you will see they are taking steps to improve the problem with their tips.

other one piece tips - 10-04-2019, 05:14 AM

If you like something on the harder end of the spectrum,there is an excellent tip still out there if you look hard enough that was made and marketed by Tad Kohara under the name Tad Tips.

I only saw them for sale as a 2 pack,and they were 15.00 back in the mid 90's.

If you aren't comfortable with something at least as hard as a "useable" WB or something comparable to the tip on a brand new Schon shaft for example,then they won't be of much use to you.

But,they might work great for you if you break with a hard leather tip.

My fave tip these days after using Ultras for layered tips and WB variants like the old Sumos,is the newcomer Samsara True Medium.

It's a little cheaper than the Kamui,but in my mind,a clearly better tip. Tommy D.
