Dear snooker beginner/player…

One of the joys of being a snooker player reviewer at SnookerZone is being able to try out new tips on a regular basis and being able to tell you which tip is a MUST to try and which ones aren’t!

So far in SnookerZone, we’ve explored 12 or more tips on our tip odyssey, and, for the most, they’ve ALL been a hit with SnookerZone.

However, the first part of this review is designed for the beginner snooker player who may be getting that feeling for wanting to try out other tips that are cost effective and within a reasonable budget.

Here’s where SnookerZone introduces you to Exquisite tips. These weren’t a freebie, but, to be honest, they are so cheap that they didn’t need to be! SnookerZone got these off an ex-pro as part of a tip bundle he was selling on Twitter and wasn’t disappointed when he played with one!

Exquisite Tips

Cheap as chips: Exquisite…

The tips are from Scotland and are described as a very hard tip. And that is true. For the part, these tips are similar to Elks and Blue Diamonds, only harder in feel. As already mentioned, these tips are very cheap and, if you’re a beginner looking to dabble in trying tips then these are a MUST to try. As we’ve said before on SnookerZone, no one can tell you what a good tip feels like. It’s very much personal preference, but, you will understand that feeling once you start playing with a lot of tips. At some point, you will have that “eureka” moment where you come across a tip you fall in love with!

We must admit though here at SnookerZone to falling in love with a few on our odyssey!

The Exquisite tips are well worth the value! They were easy to put on and shaped well. The interesting thing with them is they feel very much like the hard Grand tips, which SnookerZone also recommends. Both cheap, great feel, and worth the money. Harder tips tend to last a bit longer than softer tips so for the cost, that’s also a bonus!

The only downside to these is the fact that they only came in one grade – HARD…

If you’re a beginner snooker player, then here are the four tips we recommend trying if you’re on a tighter budget! Read the reviews on the links below! These will start you off nicely!

FOR THOSE MORE ADVENTUROUS SNOOKER PLAYERS…

At SnookerZone, we try and get hold of tips that others may not be aware of, or, simply, ignored…

We came across these tips on Ebay, and could not help but give them a whirl. We are a bit of a tip junkie here at SnookerZone!

Introducing the Weichster tips…

Have you heard of these? 127 people have, including SnookerZone…

On the ebay site, these were described as Laminated tips in imported pigskin and came in soft medium and hard in 10mm! A good start.

We ordered a medium in them and our order came within 10 days because they were ordered from China. Not a problem for SnookerZone because we play at weekends, and occasionally during the week.

Once they arrived they came in a neat little cylinder tin as per the Regency pro tips.

In fact, when stuck on, and indeed played with, they did indeed have the feel of the Regency pro layered tips black. On all counts, these were on a par with those. A great amount of spin was able to be generated and they “felt” great. As I say, if you’re more adventurous with tips, and don’t just want to try the “usual” suspect tips on the market, then give these a go and see how they whirl!

At £6:99 for three, they’re a worthy try, and very underrated. Or maybe, as we’ve said before, it’s because not many people have heard of them or have just ignored them? We imagine it’s a bit of both…

  • For the Weichster’s, we’d give them a Five for presentation!
  • For playability a Four…
  • And for Maintenance and keeping their shape, a FOUR…
