My friend donated a sniper tip to my Pool cause on saturday night even put it on for me. did a good job on it /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif.
any ways i shot about 2 hour with it, hits pretty well sounds good too, but i don't know yet if they really are worth $17 a pop!
one more thing he said i should paint the side of the tip with a black marker so it can "look better" has anyone done this with a tip before?

I sometimes use a marker on water buffalo tips to blacken them evenly (looks good over a red pad), but I usually prefer the burnished leather look. Also, Tony Jones (Talisman) warns that there is a possibility of the solvent in the marker ink softening the glue holding the tip layers together. Don't know if this applies to any other than Talisman, but I think I'd leave it alone.

Other than the Moori, I think the Sniper tip is the best layered tip available right now.

I wouldn't bother with marker on the side of the tip. I look at the object ball last, so I could care less what colour the side of the tip is! Lol!

I don't think they cost anywhere near $17.00 each!

Who told you that?

I'm partial to Talisman Pro Tips.
I sell them for $6.00 each or $20.00 installed.

I tried Sniper b4 and I thought it was too soft.
I'm using Everest now. I thought Everest was too soft too until I broke it in for two nights. Now I'm perfectly happy with my Everest.
