    Hey guys,
    I just got this in and put it on my pin. WHAT an improvement over my old stock tip! VERY meaty rubber tip. Feels like it is made to last. Hefty metal and LOTS of rubber. The shape makes it ideal for playing if you sit, and hold the bass at an angle. Seems to not want to slip on a varity of surfaces (linoleum, wood, etc). Fits a 10mm pin, although I believe they have them in different sizes.

    Anyone else use these? Thoughts?

    Yep. Another bonus? The rubber tip will not come unscrewed like other tips. Dunno how they do it.

    I solved that one with a drop of Loctite.

    You're right! I forgot about that point! It doesn't want to unscrew like the stock tip I had. It is a VERY nice tip, and seems to do everything that a tip should, which most tips DON'T.
    Veddy nice!

    That's great if you NEVER want to take it off. Basses sound better with the steel digging into a nice wood floor. You should know that. :D

    Nope, you just use the removable Loctite-- the blue stuff. By the way, I virtually never am in a situation where I want to dig that steel into my or someone else's wood floor.
