In the last few years I had to throw away a few tips after the very tip got "flattened" somehow either during the binding process or the initial post-binding straightening. I try not to apply too much pressure with a roller, but maybe it gets away from me from time to time. Anyway, bottom line is the very tip of the tip gets flattened and loses that round-hex shape.
Has anyone ever tried to just undo the gluing and try to salvage the tip strips? If so how? I use Nyatex glue and for this particular tip it hasn't been oven cured, just room temp cured for 24 hours.
