Hi all,

I'm searching for long time a tip which plays soft and STAYS soft, have now ZAN soft but after some weeks it is totally changed hardness from perfect playing soft to hard with high sound and glazing with therible high sound when contacting the ball.

I don't care for single or multipe layer but important the soft feeling and stays soft instead of hardening up after playing.

So any good suggestions to try?

Ultraskin makes a Pro Soft(61hardness)which is really soft. Even it firmed up some it would still be pretty soft. Most layered softs usually do firm up a bit, some just do it more than others. Tried an Elkmaster?

This. It's just the nature and characteristic of leather, whether layered or one piece. All "soft" tips will eventually, and rather quickly, compact to a medium density. You just have to find one that plays the way you prefer. I use a Kamui tan soft - not the clear base - on my CF shafts and am very pleased with it's performance. YMMV

It depends on how much you play, how often, style.....but, yeah.
