Which Tip should I choose for my Cue?

Choosing the right tip is not an easy task because everyone is different and everyone has different preferences. 

A correct pomerans is very important for your game enjoyment and your game results, you should never underestimate this. A good tip can upgrade a mediocre cue. On the other hand, a professional cue can also be downgraded to a moderate cue due to a wrong tip. The first choice you need to make is to choose a tip from one piece of leather or a so-called layered tip. Choosing the right tip is not an easy task because everyone is different and everyone has different preferences. It becomes a little easier if we explain a little more about the hardness and the advantages and disadvantages of certain choices. If you are interested, you can always order these Tips in our shop http://www.sonnys.be
A tip from one piece of leather, is manufactured from tanned pressed leather. The advantage of these tips is that they are cheaper than layered. The disadvantage is that these tips, when used, quickly deform, for example, hanging over (the mushroom) and or quickly dented. In addition, these tips can be processed a little more difficult due to the longer fibers in the tip. In general, it may be that your chalk is not doing well. All this can be at the expense of the purity of the rejection. And if you have a mis-cue, there is a possibility that you will reject a piece of the pomerans. These tips normally last much less than a layered one. There are also screw and slide ball punches, the disadvantage is that these have a questionable quality. The advantage is that the cue is immediately ready for play when screwed on or moved up. Examples are Elk Master, Le Pro and Triangle.
Layered Tips are often produced according to a patented process in a way that thin layers of leather are glued together. This creates a form-retaining leather mass. The composite multi-layered Tips have a much lower tendency to overhang and can easily be sanded to the desired curve, without overdoing, because they contain fewer long fibers. A disadvantage of layered pomeranses is clearly the purchase price that is always higher. And a number of cue repairers often charge more for repair costs. The big advantage is the longer lifespan, the good adhesion of the chalk, and the greater play billiards pleasure. The advanced billiard player will almost always make this choice, because of the better grip and the easy effect, of giving more effect. Examples are Kamui, Moori, Tiger and the new excellent brands Navigator, How cue tips and G-2. https://sonnys.be/shop/accessories/cue-accessories/cue-tips/how-cue-tips/

Tips can be divided into 3 groups, namely beef leather, pig leather, and synthetic Pomeranses. Beef leather tips tend to be slippery a bit earlier, which means that the chalk does not stick as well. And they tend to press. Pigs Pomerance is very suitable because of the holding of the chalk and the firmness of the shape. Synthetic is often used for Jump and Break Cues. For example, TAOM which is currently being asked a lot.

If you look at the number of billiard cue tips there are available today, it can be very overwhelming. That is why we have created the billiard cue tip guide. With the help of a digital durometer. We go through the process of determining the tip density for every billiard cue tip that we sell in our shop http://www.sonnys.be With regard to the advantages and disadvantages of the different densities, in its most basic level applies; the softer the pool cue tip, the more likely it is to get mushroom or flat pom with every shot of the toy. What this means is that a soft tip requires more maintenance than a harder tip. 
Players who prefer a soft tip believe that there is a relationship between tip softness and effect. The theory is that softer tips provide more effect and control over the ball. Ultimately it comes down to personal preference. Look at your own game and you must be able to determine which tip is going to work best for you. Often the tips are divided into different hardnesses. Such as SS (very soft) S (soft) M (medium) and H (hard). It should be noted that this hardness rating does not always correctly indicate the correct hardness.


It is better to check the table below for this. Use a standard Shore A Durometer (0-100 hardness scale) 1 kg (2.2 lbs) of pressure 
We measure the density of three tips per brand Calculated the average of three measurements to a ranking in hardness.

* Le Pro tips are very difficult to judge because the hardness varied quite a bit. The first score of 96.3 is revised when the coating comes off. After the coating was removed, the tips turned out to be softer, but there was still a big deviation from point to point. 
Keep in mind that this ranking is not meant to be authoritative. Rather, it is a report of our findings based on a small sample.
* The Navigator tips are a good approximation of reality.
