View Full Version : Anyone Cuttoff A Moori H For Another Moori H

Ok I've played with Moori hard tips and like them, but the last install from the same lot of tips is just not feeling anything like the same. I won't change to another manufacturer nor hardness on purpose so I wondered if anyone here has trashed a Moori thinking it was one of the rare, inconsistent ones...sid

Have you checked it under the binocular microscope?

As in any manufacturing business there are tolerances. Not every single tip will be exactly the same as another, so I would suggest you cut it off and try again. If the problem reaches a point of consistency, then you might think about a different manufacturer.

It's in my car today if you feel like looking at it, but yea, looks perfectly fine as far as I can tell. This'll be the first Moori I've cut off, but I guess that'll be just what I'll have to do to settle my mind. First thing I am going to though it shorten it by half to see if the crown may have something screwy with it. Oh well...sid

Sid,

Just because Mooris are layered doesn't mean they can't be inconsistent within the same hardness rating scale they use.

I have two Moori Ms on my shafts and the tips are definitely different from each other. One tip is definitely harder than the other one. I had a similar difference in hardness with Talimans tips, too.

Barbara...You probably isolated the situation. Regardless if it is or isn't abnormally hard, I'm going to chop it off and hardness test the remaining Moori tips I have on hand and select one from the lower end of the hardness range just to see is the cue responds again. No sense in twiddling at all with it...SidTheMooriTipKiller ;-)

I have 3 cues with Moori III Hard tips and have replaced the tips a few times. So I would say I have bought, installed, and played with 5 or 6 Moori Hard tips. And they have all played the same (which is why I like them so much).

FYI - I bought all my tips at cuestik.com (because they have the best price). Also I use super glue, then that rubber band gizmo to hold tip down on shaft, then when tip centered on ferrule, glue still wet, I smash the cue into the wall to get rid of any air bubbles.

Sid, Sid, Sid....

Cutting a tip off and wearing it down to the thinness of a dime are two completely different things. And until you wear down two Moori tips to dime thinness in a 9 month period, then we'll have something in common. But until then, I'm still the Head Tip Killer around here, so don't you forget that! /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif
