          Thanks ADR. Cue tips, i've been wondering about them a lot the last 2 weeks.. A while ago i bought a cue craft which has an elk master (jumped off in the first week), so then i went back to the store, ask for another elk master but i don't really think they gave a real elk master but a thai version..

          So i played with that one (only later gave it a thought that it could have been a replica), and after it needed replacement, i put a new tip on it. This one is a layered one, pretty hard and needs a lot of chalking..

          Now i'm not a great player, i started in may last year and don't even make 20 breaks. What i wanna ask, should i try out what tips i like the most or should i just put an elk master (standard used by most ppl i think) and pratice more instead of thinking about trying out cuetips??

            find an elk in the shop by squeezing them between your thumb and fore finger nails if it breaks its no good! stick it on as discribed and practice - if you are not an experienced player i doubt different tips would really help you, you would need to know your own game better to judge what tip suits you best. i would recommend get a tip on nicely fitted and concentrate on your play not the cue or tip.

                Good solid advice that.

                Just get any decent tip on your cue and go play.

                  hi found your article on tips very interesting, always been a fan of elkmaster and try to get a hard tip where possible would you say the mike wooldridge supertip class as an hard elkmaster but more consistent

                          Good info Andrew, clear instructions and pictures for the novice, well done!

                          I agree the tip is probably the single most important thing of your cue.

                          I use a Moori 3 medium for my pool and it's the best I've ever used and the best ever made in my opinion. People pay £500 for their cue and then consider £7 for a tip is too much? Expensive cues are not price-worthy if it's playing ability that you're looking for. People should choose the tip they like the most, regardless of price, and then settle with a great quality nofancy cue if they want maximum playing ability for a minimum cost.

                          For snooker I've used Moori soft but not sure if I like it or not. Probably a cue tip designed specifically for snooker is the best. Although I know Mike is an authority on cues, I find his statement on Moori tips very strange. A wooden sound is in 99 cases out of 100 not to blame on the tip, but on the person who put it on or the cue itself...

                            this is true but people who pay 20 for a cue might think it a bit expensive!

                            the trick with the moori is to knock it in a few times before the final shaping. they are nice enough tips and i know a few people who use them for snooker but personally i prefer the talisman in the end tips whatever the make are personal choice there is no right or wrong.

                              Indeed. The only way really to find out what you like is to test it yourself. Unfortunately the widely used phrase 'there is no right or wrong' sometimes that leads people to the misconception that it doesn't matter what equipment you have. For every cue/tip constellation you can have, in whatever price range, there is at least one very good player who plays with it. But of course that doesn't mean that that specific constellation is the best for you.
