Cue tip

Sorry there Over 40. I'm not sure what everyone uses. I used a Moori Soft for a very long time but recently I got a few that were too hard. I just put a pressed Triangle on my cue last weekend. I know a few girls are using the Kamui Black tips. I would imagine that a lot of people use layered tips.

Again, sorry for the delay.

Sarah what's your impression of the Triangle? The reason I ask is Triangles are a one piece tip that is called medium hard (little harder than Morri hard or quick) but when prepared right gets pretty good grab more like a medium tip. A pressed Triangle is liable to be a full hard rating.

I really am only trying the pressed Triangle because my boyfriend has been using one for a few years now and when I hit balls with his cue, it felt softer to me. The last Moori I got was rock hard even though it was supposed to be soft. So far, this one is working, but I am always trying new stuff. I have only used it for two days so far. I will let you know how it is working when I actually have some time to use it and break it in!

I used standard Triangles for a very long time before the layered tips came into vogue. Still think they're a real good tip - along with LePro for that matter. Trouble is getting good ones. Last Triangle I had seemed rock hard.
Isn't it disconcerting to get a tip that performs negatively kinda "out of left field"?
Using Everest tips now. I like the hit & performance, and the consistency has been good. Moori's just aren't what they once were.

Proud for you, Sarah. Keep at 'em!

It does suck when you get a tip that you have had before or heard lots about and then it seems to be completely opposite or like you said, getting one of the many bad Triangles or LePros. I was wondering that about the tips that I had in the past few months. In Vegas alone I had my tip changed three times. Maybe it was a bad batch or maybe it was all the travel I did? Does anyone know if flying does anything to your tip? For a few months there I was flying around the world. I guess that can be an interesting question for this week!

Over 40, I also have some Everest tips here to try. The only problem is not really having anywhere to go to get my tip changed. I can only take advantage of changing things when I go to tournaments. That can be a real pain!

mdavis...I agree, Moori tips are not what they once were. When they first came out they were the go to tip. Today it seems that there is too much variance in them even when you get the same type of tip over and over.

Sarah, I know that the cargo holds are pressurized but the usually get quite cold when things get cold especially around zero degrees they will contract i don't know how this effects a cue tip but i've flown with cues from the states to korea and never had a problem. Also when traveling you come across alot of different humidity levels so the change from dry areas to humid areas and back might change the hardness of a tip.
