Since the BCAs 2009 rule change banning phenolic tips during sanctioned events, Samsara has created a Super-Hard Layered Leather Cue Tip to fill that need. Samsara uses 9 layers of laminated calf skin to create super hard break tips that are not only fully BCA compliant, they also give you the grip necessary to control the cue ball effectively on contact--more grip than a phenolic tip, even. (note: phenolic tips are still allowed by the BCA on jump cues).
Type: Layered Laminated Leather
