I prefer using a no-name tip that has been soaked in "SJD" crying tears for about a week. You usually can collect the tears in the weekly posts. Just save them up for a couple weeks and you will have enough. I am unable to find the no-name tips at this present time.
Tip threads are no more or less boring than any other thread to me. I know how to skip over threads.
To me, what is boring is the people that jump into threads and say they are "boring", but have nothing useful to add to the thread.
To stick (no pun intended) with the subject of the thread and give you a tip, I just had a Kamui Black Medium installed on my Predator 314-2 FAT shaft this week. I will get it back tomorrow and play with it.
The original tip on the shaft was an Everest and I HATED it. I had it replaced with a Kamui Black Super Soft and I didn't like the way it played until I cut about half of it off. It finally wore down to the nub and I decided to have it replaced after playing with it last Sunday.
I know the hardness of the Kamui Black Medium is rated close to what Le Pro is. I like the feel of Le Pros, but you can't trust getting a good one anymore. I hope the Kamui Medium has the same feel.
If you haven't yet, try an Ultraskin Medium. I've always only played Le Pros, and more recently Triangles (still like Le Pros, but can't seem to find a good one other than at random). I've tried a ton of different layered tips. Like you, I absolutely hated the Everest...might be the worst tip I ever tried in my life. I didn't like any other layered tip either until I tried an Ultraskin. I fell in love with them. It does require a little scuffing once or twice a night, but it feels/plays very similarly to those good, hard Le Pros you used to be able to find IMHO.
