You may have heard that soft tips make for a better game, which isn't wrong, but it also isn't right. The most important part of your game lies in the first six inches of your cue, and it all begins with the tip, so make sure you choose the right one. Soft tips create wonderful English on finesse shots, but have you ever tried to break with one, or to bank the cue ball off a few rails. Ever find yourself reshaping your soft tips between shots, trying to massage out that distinctive "mushroom" shape. Then you need hard tips. Made of quality, pressed leather, hard tips don't absorb energy like soft tips do, transferring much more shot power at the cost of control. They play more consistently and require less overall maintenance. Ideal for breaking, ideal for long, cross-table shots. And what's great about screw-in tips is that you don't need a playing cue and a breaking cue, you just need a screw-in soft tip and screw-in hard tip. Break with your hard tip, and when you need a softer touch, just unscrew and switch out your tip! Diversify your shots, beef up your game. Set of 5 - 12mm tips. Cue shown not included! Note: we also have these in sets of 2 and 10 in our store.
