I have now added Asprin in small bottle (plastic) to my case and that's one thing I have always had to ask for or purchase at a Pool Hall. Asprin.. too much smoke and tense muscles.. asprin always seems to help out..

Envious of all the players with very good cues, and very nice cases.. My old case is a Buffalo Instroke.. 2x4 and its about 5 years old. My new one is a 1x2 that I picked up at the DCC for $35. Cheap and non-discript. That's me..

Thanks for all the replies.. I see that most of the replies are custom cues.. very few off the shelf stuff.

Looks like there are quite a few PLAYERS in this forum.. I feel so humble at times from all the knowledge from the better players being shared here.. I just need to read more and comment less.. maybe I can gain some edge.. LOL
