I bought these tips off a guy that claimed they were "shark-skin". I can't find anything about them online. There appears to be some sort of asian symbol stamped into the bottom of each tip.

Does anyone know the name of them?

Thanks.

Makes me wonder you'd buy something and THEN ask what it is.

The few sharks I've skinned were way too thin skinned for cue tips. Biggest was an 8 ft tiger and skin wasn't any thicker than a 3 ft sand shark's. Be a real problem making a tip anyway because of the little teeth in the hide.

BTW them things are hard to skin!

I don't believe my monitor is that bad ... what color do the tips appear to you, and what color is the surface on which they are resting. I'm serious, they both look like different shades of the same thing to me.

They could be shark skin. I have a friend that makes shark skin belts,shoes,and other items. He made a cue tip for me using a 13mm gasket cutter. I'm thinking of having some more made,but layered,and trying different glues. The tip I have works fine, but I like my triangle and elk masters as well. Any ideas would be appreciated. The skin can be worked in the tanning process to create almost any surface,from sand paper to glove leather.

However, it does appear to be a color photo. JMHO.

I had heard about them, but don't remember where I had read about them. I did find this. It sounds like he makes his own. http://www.easypooltutor.com/postp34756.html

Because I'm a dumbass... /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

No, seriously I thought for the price I'd check it out.

It installs easily enough. Shapes pretty quickly.
The tip probably starts off as a soft and compresses with time to a med.

It is a color photo. The tips are gray in color.
