    Your a gent George, thanks very much, though please pm your paypal name so I can pay for all you sent. I've only just started doing my own tips, so i'm a bit of a noob, i'll certainly try and get my prefered tip shape, whether I achieve it or not is another thing...

    Have to say i'm very impressed with the pg's so ordered a tub, though going to get some other tips as a back up before my league starts. What i'd like to know can you mushroom them at all, as they do sit quite tall..? and i like my tip a little bit over the furrule...

    Southpaw, Greenbaize Pro Granite's, Got some free off Stuart (true gent) The box of Elk's i recently got, My mate's were so happy with them i removed a Talisman Pro Soft that was on my TW pool cue and replaced it with an Elk. And it play's superb. My advice would be is to buy a few 11mm Elk's. PM me your address and i'll post some to you Regard's George

Finger's crossed the rest of the box is the same. No more expensive tip's for me
    Yeah i agree buffalo skin is time consuming to round, but i think the feel of the gbl pg is actually similiar to a good elk but obviously more firmer, what pg's have you tried, so i know what to avoid in the future?

    I tell you what those Gbl pro granites are rock solid(or could've been my stanley wasn't up to the job), took me ages to trim it down to the furrule, but to be honest not 100% happy with neatness of it, so i may buy a tub and redo mine and a friends, but playing wise i'm quite pleased with the feel of it after it was broke in, getting very good spin reaction and like the firmness, and i feel it suits my cue shaft stiffness which is another plus, will have a longer stint tomorrow with it and make a decision...

    I get about 6 months at least out of a good Elk Master although I do prefer either Talisman S (never tried Talisman M) or else the Phoenix M Black. I also like the Pro Granite too as they have a really god grip on the cueball.

    I haven't tried the Talisman S, but the M produces a lot of spin and is a great tip for power shots. If you're going to persist with stationary elbow, this could be useful, given the loss of any power from getting rid of elbow drop. It's not a bad tip in the balls either.

    I take it these are the older "Plus" tip in blue.? ..

    My Elks are not lasting long at all. I have one on that is too soft, I be lucky to get 2 weeks out of it.

    Also, I have to apologize to everyone (yet again). Apparently these green tips are still under development and they have only sent out a few trial packets to selected people and I wasn't supposed to talk about them. So I will say no more but if anyone wants to know my experience with them just PM me but the info must remain confidential and cannot be posted on any public forum

    Google Tweeten Fibre and click on the tips link and they will be in there. Unfortunately you have to buy them from a retail outlet as Tweeten is only wholesale and their authorized retail in UK is Peradon but they might not stock them. Best bet is to try 'pooldawg' in the US who will mail you some, but you might have to buy a box of 50 as I don't know if they sell 5 or 10 at a time and I don't know if they stock the 10mm or not.
