I'm curious what everyone thinks for milk dud tips. I have been making my own and liking them very much. They have the feel of a hard tip, grabs sorta like a soft tip and almost zero miscues.

The only ones that I've tried were on a Jensen cue that I thought played very well. I'm not sure how much of that was due to the tip, but that is usually one of the more important factors.

I've never tried one. Frankly, there are enough tips on the market and I can't see going through all of the trouble to make a milk dud. JMHO.

The short explanation is that it is an Elkmaster tip, soaked in milk, dried and then pressed in a vise.

When I first got back into playing pool from a 8 year layoff. I purchase a new Jensen cue off of Mike Johnson. He told me about milk duds back how he made them. I kinda went about how he did it. He didnt give me any specifics, but enough info I could figure it out.
