Hello ,

I just wanted to see what everybody is using for their Tip choice these days and what you like about them. I plan on ordering me some Black Medium Ultra skins to try , I have been using Triangle here latley and once they break in the seem to take English really well . I use to really like LePro's but It seems it is hard to find a good one these days , what are you guys liking these days . Thanks for all you input

Once you taste the amazing combo of chocolate and caramel, you won't want anything other than a milkdud.

Any dud is good, but the outsville are super consistent and you can actually order different hardness. I consider the Kitech milkduds, very nice tips too. No mushrooming, consistent play from the second they are on your tip. No mushrooming, very little maintenance, hold chalk like a mofo and last forever. What's not to like? Why even mess with layered tips? There really is no advantage to them, if anything having to mess with glue layers and changing hardness over the life of the tip makes them much worse IMO.

Sniper, by far the best tip ive ever seen in my life, until this day it amazes me how much draw I get, and how accurate it is, also sometimes I go very far offset and still no miscue, I know alot of AZ scientists said that tip doesnt matter and its all about offset point, or miscue point or whatever they call it, but I can guarantee you they are wrong, I use a certain tip I go not too far off an offset and it miscues, and I use sniper I go even further out and it doesn't miscue.

Same stroke, same person, same layout, same shaft, different tips, thats is all.

Chances are that if you're going out far enough to miscue with any tip, you're out there too far. I don't disagree with what you're saying, kamui .98 and an Onyx tip feels like this to me too. You can move the miscue limit out by 1/4" or more, but if you're that far outside, chances are you (like me) should be working on getting better shape and not have to bail out by courting disaster with physics. Physics can be a cruel mistress, it's best not to tempt her into retribution.

I used to think this tip combo gave me an advantage, I could get out of trouble spots that a "normal" tip/chalk would fail. Truth was, I was deluding myself into thinking having such a horrible shot wasn't my fault. I've worked on fixing this fault so at least on my turn I never have such shots to contend with. If my opponent leaves me a shot like this, I would be a fool to shoot such a low percentage shot anyway. Best to tie them up with a safety game and get them to flirt with physics doom.

Like you, the cheapest I can get.

Don't need a soft tip 'cuz I'm too skeered to shoot anything but center ball hits and don't need a hard one 'cuz I break like a little bitch.

Currently I'm using an old one that was found on the floor at the pool room.

Ultraskin Ivory soft installed by Muellers- never had a problem or looked for an excuse with them and they recondition your shafts expertly included with the tip install fee - done by one of the best living cue makers Troy Downey - all for $20 - need any more advice?

I have four shafts that I rotate on my player.
The shafts are exactly the same (diameter, taper, and length of taper) except for the tips.
I like hard pressed single layer tips.
3 are Triangles and one is a milk dud.
I cannot tell the difference between the Mild Dud and the Triangles.
They both are inexpensive and last forever.

G2 Medium. I used to play with a Moori, then Kamui, and have gone back and forth between Kamui's and G2's for a couple years now and I'm convinced G2's are more consistent. It's going to be hard for me to get away from the G2's unless they change their recipe in the future.
