View Full Version : Another tip question

Just wondering what you folks prefer, a tip with a dime's shape or a tip with a nickles roundness? Why do you prefer what you use? What are the pro's and con's of each?

This subject may have been covered here a million times but I'll give you my .02 cents worth. I use a nickle radius as a dime seems to put a little more action on the english and draw than I prefer. As well, I feel it is easier to hit the center of the cue ball with the larger surface area available on the larger radius or at least it seems off center hits do not have as much unintended impact on the shot. I would think, if someone was not getting enough draw, for instance, they might benefit from a smaller radius but would give up something in accuracy.
