What tip do you use when using taom chalk?

I've found that taom and kamui isn't the best combination.

I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

Taom chalk is extremely clean. It leaves little to no residue on CB and even less on felt.

IMO, you need to chalk more often if you use laminated tips while using taom.

FYI:

John Schmidt says the techno dud tip and taom chalk is the best combination he has ever played with.

I've bought and used the taom chalk but, I've been using a kamui black soft tip. In my experience, taom chalk and kamui tips do not work well together.

I'm gonna give the techno dud tip a try with the taom chalk after current tip.

I use Elkmasters.
Works better with soft tips for sure. Not working so good with phenolic break tips but it is okay. Need to just put some effort.
I would recommend Taom own Fusion tip. Kamui´s I don´t like anyways. Dunno why they are so popular.
It is marketed be softer from edges and harder from middle. My experience it is laminated Elkmaster
I probably try it soon in my own stick too.
Best part is that I don´t really ever get any skids. That is reason I am able to run almost every session around 100 on 14.1. Also Mr 626 changed to Taom when he was trying to break Mosconi´s record. I believe he would never broke it without reduced "kicks"..

I figured you where using an elk master or something similar.

Like many players my age that have not played in a couple decades, I used lepro, elk masters and triangles before returning years later and finding all the new equipment to work through and with.

Some of the latest equipment is a huge improvement but, I'm not sure the tips qualify.

I'm going to try an elk master soon and see if I like them as much as I did in my youth.

Thanks for the info,

Jeff

I bit the bullet and cut off an almost new Kamui Black Soft off my revo today and had a Techno Dud installed.

Do you install your own tips? Do you use pressed elks or soaked and pressed or do you use elks straight from the box?

Thanks,

Jeff

Beat the ghost in 8-Ball. Been playing lots of 14-1 and my game has improved. Beat the ghost 7-3 in the 8-BALL challenge. Was playing the pro version until I scratch on the break. Hope you enjoy.

I play a lot of 14.1 & AR. I honestly feel that thise two games are the "teaching" games of pool.

I'll 14.1 for a week or so and then play AR for a week or so. Then, when I decide to have a free play day and play 9 ball, 10 ball or 8 ball, well, it feels like cheating.

14.1 and AR will help weak players (like myself) reach average to intermediate levels much, much faster than 9 ball, 10 ball or 8 ball games ever will IMO.

On the other hand, 14.1 and AR will take intermediate players to advanced levels and so on.

BTW, are you still considering a 9' diamond. It will be a different day compared to that beast your playing on, unless you order the 9' diamond with ~4" corners.

I'm so glad I grew up knowing 14.1 and the Philippino 61 (much like AR). I'm not world beater but, I'm a much, much stronger player than I would've been if I had not went headfirst into two of the best teaching games.

On a side note: everyone says 1hole is the best teaching game. Not IMO. IMO, 1hole is good for one thing and thats to put me to sleep.

Enjoyed the vid. Have a good day.

Jeff

Make sure you make the first shot on the table. Make it a very easy one....it's good luck you know.

Can't wait to see pics.

Played 10-ball ghost 5 minutes ago on Livestream. I won 9-4. I have been busy last weeks and this was my only preparation to 10-ball Finnish Pool Tour next weekend. Bunch of pro players there. Still feeling good because I mainly been practicing my safety game last months. I was able to beat Makkonen last tournament on 7ft tables even he ran 7 run outs in alternative break format
Anyways here is video from stream:

P.s We have to break outside of breakbox in 10-ball nowadays. EPBF rules. Dunno if they are on WPA too nowadays.
