Durometer Testing:

Lately many have asked about the Durometer testing and results. I find the testing inconclusive as part of my occupation involved doing such testing. The tests are done 12 mm from the edge of object tested. A 14 mm cue tip has no distance of 12 mm from any given edge. Test results would also need to indicate if the test was performed before or after the application to ferrule and the crowning effect given after cutting through the leather. The demand is great for this knowledge so we offer it only as a guideline. The numbers will also fluctuate if one wants to wet the layered cue tip and press it over night before application.

UltraSkin Layered Cue Tips strongly advises your layered cue tips be applied by a professional whom after talking to you would set the correct tip to perform for your desired game. Most players with full custom cues have two shafts. We strongly recommend a different hardness setting for both to allow for the same reaction on different table conditions, i.e. nap of cloth, humidity etc.

Why UltraSkinLayered Layered Cue Tips?


All Pigskin Leather is inspected to ensure it meets the standards for an UltraSkin Layered Cue Tip, many pieces do not make it and are sold to other industry where the feel of a cue ball does not come into play.

The layers are than tested for impact, different equal layers are divided into a soft, medium and hard range. The pieces not consistent are sold to industry where the feel of a cue ball does not come into play.

Each layer is than shaved into a perfect (or close to perfect) same size.

The layers are than soaked in a Preparatory chemical process to inhibit moisture penetration and left out to naturally cure at there own pace. Means other than Mother Nature can change the physical properties

Specially Preparatory resins are than applied to ensure a non delaminating bond between layers. A slightly different resin hardness is used for the soft, medium and hard. Though when properly applied to a ferrule your layers will not separate it is crucial that the cue repair person does not over heat the tip during installation. Overheating will cause the resin to break down. Simple causes of this are dull cutting tools, trying to take to much tip off in single passes and over burnishing.

Soft: This Layered Cue Tip is great for players in games where a tremendous amount of spin is desired.

Medium: This Layered Cue Tip is our most popular. Players achieve almost the same spin and feel on the cue ball as the Soft but without it being exaggerated.

Hard: This layered Cue Tip is for the player that wants to feel the Cue Ball but prefers 90% of the hit and movement to be achieved through just the natural stroke the player has achieved through years of practice.
