More Tip Density Madness

Category: Pool Cue Tips

As I mentioned in my previous post, in order to get an accurate reading for our pool cue tips, there must be consistency in the testing process.  Here are the parameters we used:

  • Standard Shore A Durometer
  • 1Kg (2.2 lbs) of pressure
  • Average of three tip measurements
  • 0-100mm scale

We've logged our results on our handy new ultimate pool cue tip guide, but in case you don't feel like clicking the link, here's what we've got so far.  Keep in mind that our results might vary from others.  These are specific to the Shore A Durometer, so if you test with a different Shore scale durometer (I believe there are 12 different Shore scales), you might see different results.
