Hard tip or soft tip
Date: May 08, 2008 07:10PM
I've always played pool (8-ball reds and yellows) with cheap cues and i've always used ElkMaster or Blue Diamond tips. I've just bought a MasterCue with 8.5mm tip and it's fantastic but the tip is much harder than i'm used to and it feels a bit odd at the minute.

I was intending to change the tip but i'm wondering if a hard tip gives more control and consistency. Just wondering what you guys think?

dermohiggs,
the tips that u get on new cues are just standard factory tips.....they are usually hard and compressed.....my advice would be to change the tip to a much softer tip (elkmaster/blue diamond) asap and you will find the cue hits alot better.....i believe that in 8ball pool you are much better with a soft tip as the balls are really light and the cloth is faster and there is very little effort 2 move the balls around.....so a hard tip is out of the question

cheers,
