I use the sandman file to get it close then use a Willards dime to finish. Then just a turn or two to rough it up when it starts not to hold chaulk. By the way thanks for the Hard Tails. tip it plays very well!

FL, What is the most useful tip tool? I have the "cube" and it seems fine, but I had the tip replaced and it took forever to shape without spinning the cue so I would not over heat the leather tip. Thanks in advance. John
I've used many and I've found the Tweeten Metal Tip Shaper to be the best. It is a dime or nickel shaped filer (about 8" length) with a fine grit sandpaper insert. It is quick, clean, easy to use and extremely accurate. I believe I paid less than $5.00 for it. Great value.

After shaping with the Tweeten I use a Tip Pic to a prep the tip surface for superior chalk adhesion as needed.

This was a topic discussed before. Good information.

I got a round concave BRAD Cue Scuffer I have had for many many years that I keep in my watch pocket that works quite well. Great for a Bar with those flattened out tips you cant even hit Center of ball without miscuing ..Scuff it up and take the Clown for for some extra Cash on top of the Beers.
