Looking at the bottom edge of this tip of this tip, Ronnie uses the domed tip. Well Ronnie seems to have a different size cue tip and also the shape is now a little more standard and domed.
The height is certainly a lot less and there is a slight cone where the tip is larger than the ferrule but nothing to write home about. Again, this is more of a conventional flat tip. A reasonable amount of depth with very little dome on the surface.
Sits nice on this cushion. Well this is a nice big tip that is very domed. I think he did ok with it though! Not the best picture but the tip is certainly domed without any real depth underneath the surface area. I like to see a little depth before the surface shape. Nice depth and average shape, tip looks a little hard, I wonder if it is? Looks that way to me! The tip certainly looks a lot deeper and domed. Always difficult to decide the best time to change your tip! Well here is an old cue tip shape that Jimmy White used.
Not a usual shape nowadays but who can argue! Well the snooker tip of Kyren Wilson looks like a standard domed tip in shape although at first glance the whole tip looks a bit miss-shaped. Looking closely, it seems that he may actually favour chalking the top part of the tip a little more?
Well this looks like a very tidy domed snooker tip shape. Giles Martin fitted this for Mark and has made a very neat job of burnishing the tip edges to protect the shape of the tip and help prevent mushrooming. Again we can see that this is s standard dome type snooker tip shape. On the side the tip has been burnished to prevent mushrooming and it does make the tip look neater.
It shows how small the tip playing area is when you look at the chalk. Try to pot as many as you can in a row to improve your accuracy. The more you play, the more switched on you are and the more can anticipate certain shots.
Steve Davis used a grape to mark out this imaginary line, so you can practise not ending up straight on. Play thin off a red and try to get the cue ball back in behind the line, as close to the cushion as you can. Put a colour near the top cushion and try to get the white in behind that ball. That works on focus and concentration.
Pool is great for working on your angles, which has really helped me. I like to chill out to get focused and gather my thoughts, either with my coach or on my own. Kyren is sponsored by Cuepower. Looking to improve your snooker skills? Article courtesy of cuepower. Keep going and keep learning.
