    The only real shortcut to improving your game is learning from your mistakes. The worst thing you can do on a screwed up shot is to attempt to wipe the experience from your memory.

    Instead, replay the shot in your head and consider which of your fundamentals was screwed up. Mentally reshoot and tell your back-brain to remember the correction.

    Chris Cass used to soak his tips in buttermilk first, then clamp them in a vice. I sure do miss that guy not being with us anymore. martin

    Soaking Elk Master tips in milk and then clamping them is a fairly well know type of tip treatment. Most people refer to them as "Milk Duds" and I believe there are a number of different recipes for the process. I've never tried one myself but I am curious about the process.

    I tried it with elkmasters but didnt care for it but i only tried one. Some tips are all the same and others arent all the same. Trangles all seem to be the same when new.
