    Default Smallest tip for snooker?

    I'm a pool player and have been using 7.5mm, just paid for my first Parris which will be 8.5mm and I wondered if any of you use 8.5 for snooker or is it a big mistake?

    9.5mm was that tad to big for me and i did come

    If you've just paid for a Parris cue then I guess you're taking snooker seriously. In which case I'd say a 8.5mm tip is too small. Get a cue with a st
