Kamui had adopted a new tanning process that makes the tips rich with elasticity , abrasive and much higher quality compared to chrome leather,
But with this more consistent production method, the tips were more susceptible to moisture absorption.
The new Kamui tips both have been treated with a new process that makes the leather virtually waterproof.
You will experience a consistent feel from both the new Kamui Black and new Kamui Original.
Kamui now uses a multi platform quality test both before and after production to guarantee every run of tips are worthy of the Kamui name.
This includes a number of hardness tests, density, and elasticticy testing.
Kamui’s new look also serves a purpose.
The cue tip manufacturer now uses a unique foil printing that is very hard to reproduce.
The tips are also marked with Kamui’s legacy serial numbering.
The synergy of these two markings makes Kamui tips impossible to counterfeit.
One major concern for players that choose layered tips is mushrooming and delaminating.
This is mostly caused from the high pressures caused when the tip makes contact with the ball.
Kamui has designed a method of calculating the perfect tanning time and concentration to guarantee the
perfect density which eliminates any delamination or mushrooming, guarantees consistent hardness and
a longer life span from your tip.
