Thoughts from your experiences with different brands of cue balls and different tips would be greatly appreciated. I recently installed a Precision hard tip on one of my personal cues. I played for a few days on my son's table; don't know the brand of balls that came with it. Bottom line, when I returned home to play on a Diamond table with a different set of balls (I was told they were Cyclops), the hard tip sounded like a brick hitting a concrete wall!! The tip made a dull thud sound on my son's table. Why the huge difference? Thanks.
