What kind of tip? Most single layers play ok for a while but eventually they start feeling dead. Layered tips are probably hardened and need replaced too. You can play with them for a few months with no trouble, but budget for a replacement when you can.I'm getting back in the game and the cue I’m using probably has a 8 year old tip. It visually seems fine. Has age degraded it? I’m shooting with it and it seems to work but I don’t have a comparison between what would be an OK tip and a good tip.
They are sooooooo good. Makes my heart warm to hear about old Le Pro’s getting used.Howdy All;
I have about 2/3's left in a box of Le Pros that I bought in 79. Figure they
were made in 78 or 77. WTFKs??? Any way just had one put on a shaft
and just spent 3 hours breaking it in. Works very well on the cue its on.
Think it has to do with the coating. Makes'em the M&Ms of cue tips
