Last I heard things were running again up in Niagara Falls. I think you will see them soon.I've been using Regal Tip "Rock" nylon tips for the past 45 years. Sadly availability seems to be a thing of he past. Calato has suggested that production will be restarting in a few months but it appears inevitable that this stick is gone for good. The search has begun for a suitable replacement but change it tough after this many years.
