Paul Dayton has been using Talisman cue tips for a while now and had been saying some nice things about our tips in email. I wanted to use what he had said for our testimonials page and so I put a couple of messages together and sent it to him to ask for permission to use it on the site here. This is what I sent to him, made up from his messages to me.
The verdict may be out on the election but it is in on Talisman tips. I tried the PRO med and it was ok. I tried the PRO soft for the hell of it and it was great. I was sure I had found the tip I was looking for. Unfortunately, I then tried the WB med. Damned if it wasn’t even better than the soft PRO. The hard WB hasn’t had enough time for me to make up my mind but in the meantime I want to order some tips!
I am still testing the tips and to date, they are the best ever. I’ve never had a tip delaminate. I have been playing 3-cushion with the med WB for four weeks (12 Hours) and there don’t seem to be any problems. Sure, a little fuzzing and a tiny bit of mushrooming but you HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT 3-CUSHION IS LIKE HITTING NOTHING BUT BREAK SHOT AFTER BREAKSHOT and this is about as stern a test as I can come up with. The tips are great. Heck, moori’s mushroomed more.

He came right back to me with the following message:
I think it might be good for you if you mention the fact that I am searching for the very best tip for my cues in as much as the tip determines how the cue plays and hits. It really is one of the most important parts of any cue. A tip can make or break a cue. The better the tip, the better the cue. Moori’s were the best. YOURS ARE BETTER. I now have over 20 hours 3-cushion time on the med WB tip and can say with certainty that this tip in a 13 mm pool cue can put more english on the cue ball than my 11.5 mm Moori tipped billiard cue. It really is amazing. I have been playing for over 40 years and this is flat out the best tip I have ever used. Mis-cues are something you have to work hard to get. The tip holds chalk longer than most tips and it doesn’t lose its shape.
I will be using your tips on all my custom cues unless some one wants another specifies another tip against my advice.
Tony, take whatever parts of this you want and put it on the site. I really mean it when I say these are the best tips I have ever used and this goes all the way back to 1960. It includes the original French Champion tips (I still have a few of these left) the Chandeviert line of tips and about everything that has come along. I am always trying to get a better tip. None have done everything I want them to do. Your tips seem like the end of the search. You have to be careful when applying spin to the ball. The same offset on the cue ball using your tip will apply more english than you are used to getting when using another tip.
There, that ought to hold you.
