The Tiger Everest Laminated billiard cue tips have been selected from the highest quality pig skins. It is also the most sophisticated and durable cue tip created. The layers are carefully selected and split. From these splits only the ten most even and durable layers are chosen. By vacuum laminating with Tiger's proprietary VACULAM™ process, the Everest cue tip becomes the highest quality laminated cue tip. Each Everest Laminated Cue Tip is individually tested for consistency, hardness and quality.
