I wrote a Tip Article for InsidePOOL Mqgazine in 2005 when layered tips were just starting to catch their groove. Tiger and Talisman had joined Moori into the mix. That was 16 years ago! Seems like … well … 16 years ago.I have been using Le pro tips for 40 years. Is there any advantage to
the expensive layered tips?
I listed down a few advantages/disadvantages for both. For disadvantages, I noted that the exposed glue layers, you’d actually be hitting on an inconsistent surface. It might seem trivial since the contact should be chalk covered, but years later, it seems obvious to me that the observations of “glazing” has to be because of the glue layers. In layman terms, there’s friction, heat, and an adhesive material that is susceptible to that heat. There’s no reason to think that glue wouldn’t flow/creep.
I have dozens of layered tips in my supply box, including a couple of original Mooris. I use pressed Triangles today.
