View Full Version : Can Anyone Identify This Odd Cue Tip?

Last week I collected two shafts from a customer who wanted a Moori medium installed on one of them.

She said that her main shaft had recently been retipped with a Moori. Although the installation was poor, she said she liked the tip very much and therefore wanted one on her spare shaft.

Poor was an understatement for the installation job. The tip looked like it had been trimmed with a bandsaw, and glue was running down the sides of the ferrule. I told her that I would clean up that tip for free while doing the paid install on her spare shaft.

Well, after I trimmed the sidewalls of the "Moori", I could tell that it was not a Moori after all. Actually, it was nothing I had seen before. The layer boundaries are nice and straight (like a Moori), but the layer thicknesses vary wildly:

Note that the bottom layer is thick, the next layer is thin, and the next two are somewhere in between.

Anyone seen this before? What is it?

I am wondering if it is fake tip of some sort? I have heard of fakes on the market, instead of a Moori maybe it is Noori? LOL

Some time ago I was reading about a tip on muellers. It is a Tiger Dynamite tip which has 5 layers. Looks like this one has 5, might be. BTW their pig skin.

Could be a homemade tip...
Looks like it might be a dynamite, but have never seen them with different thickness layers like that...very strange...

I'm 95%+ certain it's NOT a Moori.
Alsmost looks like there's a 6th and 7th layer in the shaped area.

Could it be a BigMac tip?

Definitely not a Moori.

It might be a "Moron i" /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

I'm going to bump this, since Popcorn's back and someone said he might know.
