    • Compared to original Kamui's, these are a bit more lively and responsive. You really "feel" through the shot and get more spin with smaller adjustments. I can't comment on it's longevity, as PoolDawg didn't glue my tip on correctly and it fell off after a week.

    • This tool does allow you to shape, scuff, and burnish with one tool. In that sense, it's very convenient.

      However, (1) the scuffing surface is horrible. It's far too coarse and blunt and mauls any fine tip except for Le Pro and Triangles. I really recommend Kamui's Gator Grip. Pricey, but the surface is phenomenal, guaranteed.

      Also, (2) the shaper concaves are simply bowl-shaped indents lined with bits of sandpaper. This works fine, but metallic shaping surfaces are more durable. The inexpensive construction of this tool doesn't justify the price tag.

    • I ordered a 19oz with a Kamui Black medium tip. Excellent, full, responsive feel that with plenty of tactile feedback; allows for fine adjustment of stroke. The WD700 shaft feels great on the bridge hand.

      This cue is suited for fine, technical play . Not strong at long, cross table shots, especially with a softer tips.
