I am being serious, not jerking anyone's chain. I have been playing since the 60's, and was away from the game for a while, and now it seems layered is the answer for most/many players. I am confused as to why a tip that is 90% leather and 10% glue, would be better insurance against miscues. The chance of hitting on a portion of the tip, that is either glue, or leather impregnated with glue is too great. Am I missing something very important? Mushrooming seems to be the main complaint against solid tips. Since I don't break with my playing cue, or need to hit sledgehammer shots, more often than maybe once in 40 or 50 games, dressing the edges of a solid tip, has never been an issue. I used a Moori, when they first came out, but saw no real advantage. I know that I must be missing something, and I would like to hear what it is before I spend $20 for tip I may or may not like. I have found that this forum has people good enough to explain what I am missing, who truly do have expert opinions.
