I usually will still continue to use the stick I will usually just swap the sticks so the chipped tip stick is in my left hand on the snare, of course, if it is chipped too bad I wont use it. Thats the reason I dont like nylon tips is because once that thing breaks off you really dont want to use the stick anymore. No way to avoid it other than play softer I guess but I kind of expect to chip the tips and/or break the stick.
