Tom Hay's new line of tips - 07-19-2016, 07:25 PM

Everyone knows Tom Hay's infamous line of Ultraskin tips. They're layered, cheap and play amazing. And by cheap, I mean you can buy 10 of his tips for the price of 1 Kamui tip.

Recently I saw Tom post on his Facebook page about his new line of tips called Simplicity In Billiards (SIB Tips). The purpose of this new line of tips is to use brown leather (light green according to Tom) tips and that they're made to play as close as possible to the 1990's Moori tips. Seems very interesting, I'm definitely going to give this a try. From my experience, brown tips tend to hold chalk significantly better (eg: G2 and Kamui Brown). I'm also hoping Tom can maybe provide the same or similar deal to his Ultraskin tips.

Going to try one myself. I always did like the way an old Moori played, sometimes.
And, for you folks out there who have never used an Ultraskin cue tip, don't let Zero's use of the word cheap fool you. Tom's tips are all high quality at a reasonable price. With emphasis on the high quality.
Save me a couple of mediums, Tom.

I am a big fan of the Ultraskin tips. My only gripe is when I use the medium black tip that it mushrooms way too easily and I have to have it fixed up. I think my last one I had to have it done twice. They play great though, just wish they didn't mushroom so easily.

Will be on the look out to pick a few up for testing... I have test numbers for compression, Hardness and COR on the original Moori M thanks to Royce (RIP) and Lomax....

Maybe the new ones will at least be marked with country of origin per FTC requirements...

Don't worry Lendon..I'm sure, after you have your corrective thumb surgery, you will be able to see it was actually your thumb that was mushrooming!

PS..Hope its not too late for our wager on Bustie and Chohan?

Give it a rest Chris, it only makes you look small when you make posts like this.

Woofy, I play One Pocket with a guy who miss cues several times a session. He'll blame the tip, the chalk, the humidity, the waitress with too short, shorts. Everything except his stroke which is as screwed up as Hogan's goat.
Are you like that guy?

Hey, I'm pedaling as fast as I can.
Let's see, you say Ultraskins suck, but you don't give any reasons why. So what then are the rest of us to assume?
Remember, Woof. Ninety-nine percent of all plane crashes are caused by pilot error.

Mine mushroom slightly after playing for a couple of days. I trim them and they never mushroom again. I'm voting pilot error too. Best layered tips I've played, and I've tried most.

The phrase like Hoganís goat refers to something that is faulty, messed up, or stinks like a goat. The phrase is a reference to R.F. Outcaultís seminal newspaper comic Hoganís Alley, which debuted in 1895.

Agreed, after buying and installing over a hundred I think they are great. I never have to shape, trim, or touch the ones on my personal cues. Sometimes just 1 time after installing as mentioned above but that is true for most all tips.
