There are more than 50 brands of tips. Which is best for you? There are at least 3 considerations when buying a tip.
First is a layered or non-layered tip. 1 piece non-layered tips - are inexpensive but tend to mushroom and change hardness with use. Layered tips - cost more but are more consistent, last longer, don’t mushroom and put more action on the cue ball but sometimes de-laminate.
The second consideration is hardness. Tips come in a range from very soft to extremely hard. Most players opt for a medium tip for their playing cue and a very hard tip for their break cue.
The third and most important factor is personal preference. Experiment until you find a tip you are comfortable with.
