Just a quick first impression of Tom's new tip. I put on a soft and i'm usually a medium user so initial feel was pretty foreign. After about 45min i started to really dig the softer hit. This tip REALLY holds chalk well. What i really like is the feeling of the ball being on the tip just a tad longer. I think Tom has another winner here. Good tip and a really good price. I got three on ebay for 15bux delivered. Ordered them Friday and got them yesterday! Great service.
