I was a die-hard triangle user and installer but got very tired of having very few from a box actually make it to the table. This is not a plug for a product, but will say I now use Ultra skin Ivory Med personally and install those and the softs ....same if not better grip and every tip I put on is the same....no waste. In my opinion, the Tweeten company doesn't really give 2 sh%ts, otherwise they would have not let the quality drop like they did. Just look at the date stamp from the first post to now...does it really take that long to improve the quality of your product if you really cared? I gave up waiting and found a very comparable, VERY consistent tip to replace them with and the $ amount is not a big difference and I have no customer comebacks for bad tips, instead I have happy customers, and I am happy with my shooting too.
Agree with almost everything in your post. The two shits is the only one I would say might be unfair. And you could say their lack of knowledge that they had a problem may be proof of that as well. All I know is the guy I've been talking to/ trying to help by installing test tips, seems very motivated to fix this issue. I had the same issue you had with installs, and got so frustrated that I called em. They didn't seem to know what I was talking about. I didn't believe it at first, because, no way could I be the first to complain about it. These guys don't install tips, and I doubt they play much either, but I would have thought folks were raising hell.
Talked to my guy Friday. He said raw materials have been a big issue for them, especially since covid. Finding good leather wasn't as easy, but shipping had gone through the roof. 400% increase in air freight so they are having to use boat. Time is much longer to receive, but they just received a large shipment last week, so I'm hoping they are able to come through. I think they will be called Triangle Premium Pros. Keeping my fingers crossed, but I agree. It's been a good while on the testing, and getting it in our hands. Just would like to have a decent entry level non layered tip to offer to my customers.
