Hi Everyone. Absolute newb here with a an abosolute newb question about this pool cue. I purchased it through Amazon and have a question about it. It has a 13mm LePro tip, do I need to add a ferrule/tip to it or do I use it as is? I've only used cues from local billiard halls and the tips on their cues don't look like the one on this cue. I purchased slip on Ferrule/tips and they fit but they are a bit loose and I don't know if they are necessary.

Here is a link to the cue I purchased:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000HTYV4K/dealtime-sg-ret-20/ref=nosim

The ferrule/tips I got are similar to these but they are Miz brand:
http://www.amazon.com/Slip-on-ferrules-blue-tips-6/dp/B00065CJ5I/sr=1-5/qid=1163013883/ref=sr_1_5/102-8377876-2819320?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods

I apologize for my newbiness. Please help.

Thanks a lot!

The tip on your new cue is better than the slip-on tips you are used to playing with. Your newly purchased slip-on ferrules and tips are unnecessary and inferior.

Enjoy your new cue!
