Tiger X Shaft LD NEW from Tiger Products

Tiger Products X LD Shaft

Tiger Products has just released news of there new X LD Cue shafts. These shafts are very similar to the popular Tiger X shaft first produced in the mid 90's but they have been modified by adding balsa to the core effectively making the shaft lighter than there predecesor. This light weight modification produces lower deflection making it easier for pool players to pocket the ball.

The Tiger LD shaft comes standard with a Sniper tip , and very short 0.25" length Saber-T ferrule for better performance. If you have a standard maple shaft, you just might want to pick up and extra shaft from Tiger products.

This shaft as well as all of Tiger's New items will be released at the 2010 show in Las Vegas, and become available to the public on July 5th, 2010.

Tiger has promised much improvement over there previous designs. They are also releasing the new X PRO shaft, a conical tapered version very similar to the Predator Z shaft as well as the new Onyx cue tips and a new Tiger Break cue featuring the upgraded Icebreaker tip.

Onyx Pool Cue Tips

Tiger has just released news of there new Onyx - LTD® cue tips for billiard cues. These Onyx tips are made with the same bore hides as the well known Sniper tips. Each layer of precision skivved leather is treated with Tiger Cue Products secret process of underground tanning. Each layer of the cue tip is turned black afterwords without using any dye. This is a very slow and time consuming process.

During these steps the cue tip layers are softened ti a medium hardness while making the leather more porous and rubber-like for better cue ball action. This also makes the cue tips easier to maintain and last longer. Onyx cue tips are consistent, long lasting, and high performance.

Onyx cue tips by Tiger will be produced in limited numbers each year. This is because of the very time consuming and labor intensive process needed to create the tips. "For those who want the best, Onyx-LTD®".

Tiger Onyx Cue Tips

Onyx Cue Tips will become available on July 5th 2010, first sales will be available from Tiger Products at the BCA Show in Las Vegas

End of the Villar Cup?

This week Announced, Manny Villiar now former President of the Philippines has lost his race to continue his stay in office

Manny was a large supporter of his countries "national sport". With the Villar Cup bearing his name, and a new president in office it is questionable wither billiards can expect to see the series stay alive


In this very old movie, You can see Efren shooting in the tournament. There is a lot of history and heritage that could be lost with the Villar Cup.

Kamui Gator Grip

Yes, that’s right suggests you throw away your spiked, gritty, concaved, and “put between your feet and start a forest fire in the pool hall” type of pool cue tip tool.

Ever since Kamuiâ„¢ Tips did a soft introduction to the market of the new Kamuiâ„¢ Gator Grip this past May in Vegas at the BCAPL tournament, it has proven itself to be a unique solution to the common problem of a glazed pool cue tip surface. It is the answer to proper pool cue tip maintenance and necessary to agitate the compaction of chalk that would otherwise intercept the relationship of the ball and Kamuiâ„¢ leather.


for approximately 6 years, Kamui™ Tips could very well take on the persona as the proverbial Little Engine That Could. Kamui™ Tips has stood out from the competition with the ambition of producing the best pool cue tip money can buy for the avid and recreational player. “With the mass of pool cue tips that are on the market, many players experience miss-cue and mushroom issues at times when they need their cue to perform the most” says, John Bertone Owner/Operator of “Our manufacturer understood that in order to corner the tip market, science, technology and high standards is the formula for a successful and consistent product during the production process.”


The Kamuiâ„¢ Gator Grip is now available at most cue maker shops and retailers. Get the Kamui Gator Grip
