Nice. I just went on a spending spree myself to upgrade my pool room.

The floor-standing cue rack (http://www.morrisonthenet.com/billiards/pics/cue-rack.jpg) came in yesterday and I love it. The mahogany finish is beautiful, a little darker than the Brunswick Mahogany finish on my table but still very nice. It's an import, but it's solid, heavy hardwood (no particle board or MDF), weighs about 30 pounds, and was very reasonably priced.

I ordered these spectator chairs with table (http://www.morrisonthenet.com/billiards/pics/spectator-chairs.jpg) but they haven't shipped yet, it could take awhile. I can't wait to get them, I basically have only a futon (yes, a futon) for seating in the pool room now. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I also finally gave in to the urge to try a low-squirt shaft and ordered a Predator 314 with Moori Quick tip for my old Meucci Original 87-model cue. This is a beautiful cue from back when Meucci cues were much better made than now, but the original shafts had some deep dings and slight warpage so I figured I'd try the 314 on it. Shot about an hour with it last night, I like the hit but dislike the bad fitting at the joint. The 314 joint is a hair larger in diameter than the butt. It doesn't affect shooting but is annoying because I have the habit of running the joint through my bridge hand before I get down on a shot and now it snags. I may try to have it custom fitted. But so far, I'm liking the 314, it will just take some getting used to. It seems to really add power to the stroke -- I had to shoot speed drills for awhile last night to recalibrate my stroke because the CB seems to really absorb more of the energy with the 314 than with the old whippy Meucci shaft. The hard Moori may have added to that because I normally shoot with a medium tip.
