Kamui Clear Black - mis cue - 03-19-2018, 06:17 AM

Iíve put on a Kamui Clear black super soft and I have never mis cued so much in my life. It seems I need to scuff the tip every game. Itís cost me a quite a few games now.

Wondering if anyone else is having these issues. Looking for ideas on what to do so the tip holds chalk better.

Also any tips you recommend to use that hold chalk. Thanks

Try an Ultraskin or a Thoroughbred. Had no problems. KB's have a reputation for glazing quickly.

I have never miss cued so much with a tip change. Pretty frustrating to pay that much and have these issues.

I have a couple Kamui black mediums I was going to put one onto one of my cues but now not sure I want to, shame as they were pricy, only bonus I guess is I have a lathe so install is free.

Can't be worse than the Everest that came on it, lost the centre of the tip after about 3-4 hrs of regular play and had to take it down 2 layers to re-shape.

I bought a lathe to put them on myself. Just shaved about 1/8Ē off to see if it will help. But Iím not impressed with these tips.

What tip is best? Holds chalk and doesnít deform much?

Just ordered some hybrid cyborg tips and Moori. Hope I can find the right one soon.

The Thoroughbred tips that I sell hold chalk extremely well and don't glaze over like a lot of layered tips do. Kamui tips, especially the black versions have been notorious for glazing over. In recent years, the glazing has become worse. The thoroughbred tips are only $10. If you have any questions, send me a PM or check them out at http://www.thoroughbredtips.com

These are really nice tips. Hold shape AND chalk well. I hit mine with a light scuff every now-n-then and you're good.

Put on some Ultra-skin softs and get rid of the Kamui Black SS.

I had those on a couple of my shafts and they never did play the way I thought they should and they kept glazing up. Too much hassle with them.

Went to the Ultra-skins and don't have any problems now.

Right now the best tip I have for holding chalk is the Victory Med that came on my Predator Ikon cue, I use just plain old Masters chalk and I can go lot's of hits and still good, most of the time I go to chalk out of habit and it's still good. Also hardly have to scuff or pick it, I've been leaving it to see how long it can go without touch up and it's holding strong. I also notice if Just me playing with that cue my table stays cleaner longer, way less chalk marks on it.

That all being said I'm just in it for fun and enjoyment and haven't tried a lot of different tips as I just got back into playing, but out of the ones I have on cues Everest, Moori, Emerald, and the Predator, it is ahead in my books so far. Just installed a Kamui black med today on a different cue as already had it, can tell already it doesn't hold as well.

Next tips I'll be trying are the KamiKaze I just got, not sure when I'm out of cues to install on and don't feel like replacing brand new tips.

Get rid of that Kamui crap, I'm telling you.

Order some Ultra-skins and get it over with.

I ordered some from Tom on Monday and got them in the mail today.

For what you pay for one Kamui, you can get about 10 Ultra-skins.

Did you remember to cut off the plastic layer before sanding the tip?

I also use the same tip and have not had any issues. Even if I use a house cue with a glazed tip, probably wouldn't miscue as much as you by the sounds of it.

Sounds to me like the tip is either fake, badly installed, you need to work on your stroke or you are exaggerating. Assuming you run the table at 9 ball, thats scruffing the tip every nine hits?

In my experience, if you prep the tip correctly, it will hold chalk for a very long while if you chalk every shot. Once you start skipping, its all downhill
