Pool Cue Tips and Ferrules from Cue Components


Pool Cue Tips and Ferrules

All pool cue tips are 14mm unless otherwise specified.

Here we offer only the finest pool cue tips available in the world. None of these pool cue tips are price-fixed by the manufacturer therefore you are purchasing a free market item. Some pool cue tip manufacturers insist on fixing prices where the consumer is forced to pay outrageous manufacturer suggested retail pricing or restrained MAP (minimum advertised pricing) policies. MAP limits sellers from advertising prices lower than the prices set by the manufacturer. Have you ever noticed a product for sale where all sellers have similar pricing; that's what MAP does (text book examples include: Aramith, Predator, Kamui etc including mostly all production cue manufacturers). We will never sell priced fixed items and support a product that does not allow for free marketing.

We make the market in pool cue tip pricing and as such you will not find lower prices anywhere. If you do, let us know. Thank you.


So, what is the best pool cue tip Joe?

This has been a long asked question which no one can seem to answer but I am going to definitively answer this question to satisfy all who have ever asked it. The absolute best hitting tip is..... Drum roll please..... The tip that you play best with.

There is no answer to this question as we all play differently. If I play best with a Moori, that doesn't mean that you will. You may play best with a Samson or Buffalo tip and that's fine. Charlie may play best with a Sniper and Mark with a Thomas or Morakami™ Black, Morakami™ Clear or Morakami™ Brown . There are many tips on the market and all are excellent tips otherwise they wouldn't be offered. If they weren't good, sales would show that and no reseller wants dead inventory especially us as we have tens of thousands of dollars tied up in inventory with cue tips.

The trick is to not listen to anyone, try as many different tips on your cue as you can afford and you'll find your best hitting tip. Now remember, when you do find it, stick with it. If you change cues, that tip may not be the best tip for you any longer. It's all trial and error. And remember, just because a tip is $20, that doesn't make it the world's best tip. That only makes it the world's most expensive tip. Your best tip may be a $2 to $3 Samson Cue Tip. It may be a Moori® Cue Tip or a Morakami™ Black Cue Tip, Morakami™ Clear Cue Tip or Morakami™ Brown Cue Tip or some other tip on the market. So, whether it's a Morakami™ Cue Tip, Samson Cue Tip, Sniper Cue Tip, Onyx Cue Tip, Onyx Extreme™ Cue Tip, Maximus Cue Tips, Moori Cue Tip, Emerald Cue Tip, Everest Cue Tip, Raptor Cue Tip or an American Eagle Cue Tip. Your best cue tip will be the tip that you play best with.

And remember this too, just because you like the tip on your buddies cue doesn't necessarily mean you'll like it on your cue.

INSTALLATION TECHNIQUE

Installation has a lot to do with how a tip will play. If you have Cheap Charlie install the tip in the back seat of his car with pliers and drill, most likely it will play as well as Charlie installed it. You get what you pay for.

Installation is paramount. A proper installation will not mushroom, will play consistent, will hold chalk and will last. All tips need to be cut down and some need to be cut back, some sanded and all burnished. If it's not done properly, you may not like a perfectly good tip that would otherwise play extremely well had it been installed properly.

Delamination or the layers falling apart is always due to inexperienced installation where the installer builds up excessive heat by sanding and or cutting the tip to shape it. Experience is key as is not building up heat. Take your time and don't sand excessively. All tips need to be cut down and not sanded down.

Lastly, if the tip delaminates, pops off, explodes or balloons it's due to cockpit error. PERIOD. We've installed thousands of tips as have our clients and we sell tens of thousands of tips all without incident. All problems are 99.9999% of the time installation issues. Proper installation by a knowledgeable cue mechanic is always recommended and encouraged.

This article shall remain posted until the marketplace settles down due to the damage & uncertainty created by Pechauer or until such time as Pechauer sets the record straight.

The Moori Controversy & Joe Pechauer

written by Joe Barringer

For the record and just to clarify, genuine Moori tips are still available in the USA from Japan through reputable resellers such as Cue Components (as well as a few other resellers) and don't worry about the rumors as they're all untrue.

We were recently shown a statement that Joe Pechauer of Pechauer Cues circulated to his clientele. We were deeply saddened and dismayed over the irresponsible statement that Joe Pechauer made to his clients. We would never expect this of Joe but be that as it may, he did make the statement which created chaos and uncertainty in the Moori marketplace by his deliberate and false statements. He stated that Moori tips "would no longer be made available in the USA" and "that any that are sold here could be fakes". That was nothing more than a self-serving endeavor. Any respect we once had for Pechauer is long gone. It's a shame for someone who prides himself in making all American cues to make such a false and inaccurate statement. At this point we have zero respect for someone like that who puts his best interests above all else to screw others for his own selfish greed. And, the worst part is that he was informed of his indiscretion but his flawed character and utter contempt for the billiard community will not allow him to apologize for making such an outrageous, ludicrous, egregious, false and irresponsible statement.

Pechauer needs to man-up and apologize to all the good, honest and hard working resellers of Moori tips. More importantly he needs to apologize to the billiard community as a whole, especially to the fan base and customer base who have come to rely upon Moori tips as their tip of choice.

The true story is that Genuine Moori's are readily available in the USA. The problem comes from the fact that the European distributor and the self proclaimed "USA Moori distributor" (the clueless pinheads in Skokie) cannot get supplied as they had been getting supplied because of the death of one of Moori's distributors in Japan. As such, the European distributor and the "USA Moori distributor" who relied upon this supplier in Japan can no longer obtain Moori as that was their sole supplier. Unlike us, we never relied upon this individual and had other sources that remain secure to this day. Moori tips are in very high demand and still remain one of the best playing tips to this very day, are readily available and of course they are in fact genuine.

And now we'd like to return you to your regularly scheduled program.


ENDORSEMENTS
(all names and tips are fictitious to make the point)


Don't you just love to hear that Fast Eddie uses Brand X tips or cues because he can feel the difference of the quality over all others. Nine Ball Nelson uses Brand Y because he plays best with them and would never consider any other. Mack the Knife (great song) uses Brand Z because they are the best and no other tips or cue comes close.

Who the heck do you believe? It's really an easy decision. The answer is a very simple one. NO ONE.

You don't and can't believe anyone who endorses a product today. Many pro pool players will prostitute (yes it's prostitution just as many Movie Stars tout a new age cream or reverse mortgages) themselves to anyone for the almighty dollar. Values, morals and ethics all go out the window for the big bucks. If we were to pay Fast Eddie $50k a year, he'd say he likes the new all rock tips made from the finest rock quarries in the United States. I kid you not. It's all about money. When some pro players endorse a product, it's because the manufacturer paid more than all the others or have them under contract. And never stray away from that belief and you'll never be misled to spend your hard earned money for crap that is exactly that.

And then, to add insult to injury, these same manufacturers use MAP (Minimum Advertising Price) to manipulate you, the American consumer into paying inflated, controlled and fixed marketplace pricing through their resellers. These same resellers assist the manufacturer in manipulating the market pricing against you. Just say NO to these manufacturing manipulators as it's a vicious cycle and controlled market.

Furthermore, I am not going to mention any cue manufacturers but many are manufacturing cheap cues in China and then selling them for big bucks here in the USA. The funniest thing is to see a Pro player standing there holding and endorsing that product! Personally, I think it's hysterical as some pros have no shame.

These manufacturers have huge advertising campaigns and flood the market with their ads to brainwash you, the American public into believing that their products are the best and superior due to their 'X317LM½' technology. The only technology they have is in their advertising budgets. These manufacturers are predators on the marketplace.

And then the best one liner is "as a manufacturer we don't pay our pro players or offer them financial compensation". Yeah, and if you believe that, I have some beach front property I'd like to sell you. The truth is that many manufacturers are now resorting to this tactic where they actually don't pay the pro but give them X number of tips or pool cues a month. Well, gee what do you think the pro does with those tips or cues! Do I have to paint a picture? It's indirect compensation.

When it comes to pool cue tips or cues don't believe all the hype because the hype is paid for by the manufacturer. No supplier will ever say this, much less publish it but us because it's the truth.
