The entire Ki-Tech line employs the use of COR testing to ensure quality, consistency and performance. All three grades of hardness are put thru entirely different processing. Most tip manufacturers simply use different amounts of pressure to create hardness grades. Outsville does not. Each grade is engineered and processed to provide the specific feedback expected from each hardness grade.
While tips have been solely graded on hardness for years the winds of change are always blowing. Coefficient of Restitution determines the feel and energy transfer of a tip. It's a measure of elasticity. After years of R&D we have learned to control and increase the amount of COR normally found in leather.
Single layered means no more delaminations and a greater ability to withstand impacts and remain at the hardness you purchased.

- Currently offered in Soft, Soft-Medium, Medium, Medium-Hard, And Hard Ki-Tech Tips are Single Layered Performance Tips that are engineered to balance Hardness and Spin... As you move up in hardness you willbe trading a litte bit of spin for a little bit of speed. We do this by changing the tip itself and altering it's COR and not by just changing a durometer reading and selling one tip as a soft, medium or hard...
