Best tip tool you can get - a must have! 03/12/2010Tip PikI am a personal believer in having the best tip possible on your cue - it's where the rubber meets the road after all! Since I spend quite a bit more on my tips than many of my teammates and competitors I like those tips to last as long as possible. That's where the Tip Pik comes in. It is a perfect inexpensive tool for making sure your tip holds chalk - WITHOUT eating away at the tip itself. I have teammates who ''scuff'' and ''grind'' their tips every time they get a bit shiny and they go through five tips in the time I go through one - and I use very soft tips! If I could only have one pool tool in my cue case and home for the rest of my life - the Tip Pik would be it.I would recommend this product to a friend.
