11.75 - 12.4 mm... depending on which cue I pick up to shoot on my home table.

Don't like anything over 12.4 mm.

A hair over 13mm is what works best for me.

Most of mine are 12.75 - 13 but I also like 12.5s.

11.75 for geometric precision in striking the cue ball.

That's tricky to answer. I use a 14 mm tip and trim it down to my 13mm ferrule.

Sorry but the poll is flawed.
You ask for tip diameter, but the poll has shaft diameter.
They are not the same.
My tip size is 11mm but the shaft at the bridge point is around 12mm.
