Pro Granite tips is made using Water Buffalo hide. Blue Diamond tips are also made with Water Buffalo hide, both types of tip are made with compressed leather fibres and bonded together with a binding solution ( glue/resin )
Pro Granite tips are put together with a stronger binding solution, the end product is well pressed and shaped and very consistent.
The feed back we have received so far has been great, the general opinion is that the tips play extremely well, not a lot of bedding in time required and once played in will hold shape and grip the cue ball, other comments from players using the tips are that the tip has lasted longer than tips they’ve used before, they can’t believe how much spin they are able to get on the white, very reactive, players have also said they feel they have total confidence in the tip due to the solid feel with every shot, all these things are what players look for in a good tip.
More feed back about the bedding in is when first fitted the tip feels very hard when striking the cue ball, but after about 30 mins of play the tip breaks in and settles down, becomes slightly softer. ( The hardness has been compared to a Talisman medium )
This listing is for:
- 1 x Tip
- Tub of 5
NEW TO SHARPSNOOKER AND A FIRST IN CUESPORTS RATED TIPS (10mm only)
If you like using blue diamond tips you may be fed up looking for a soft, medium or hard tip as i know i did and switched to laminated tips which offer a more consistent rating.
I have now rated tips using a durometer which measures the tips hardness. To do this i need the measure it three times to get an average. The tips are then rated into three groups using the durometer shore A (0-100 hardness scale). The pressure is 1kg(2.2lbs of pressure.
- medium rating of 80-85
- hard rating of 90-95
note only small amounts available in rated tips not box qnty as they are tested from box qntys
