    I have a cue that looks very similar, it is a KC custom, also no markings but found it on the KC website. Haven't been able to get on their site lately, might be out of business.

    Re: What do you think of Strickland?

    I can remember, when I was young and just starting to get serious about pool, there was this "old" guy where I was learning. All he ever did was play really good pool, he would talk to his opponent,...

    Re: Cue tips?

    I have been using the Kamui Black super soft for about 6 months, and I love it. Haven't had to do to much to it, holds chaulk well and can get a lot on cueball.

    Re: new tip info

    I have been using the Kamui super soft for about six months and love it. Hope they never quit making them, because I have never found a tip I like as much.

    Re: Is adrenaline really the enemy?

    Re: My new pool club

    As a semi-serious player, I would suggest to everyone here, just ignore 1Time as he appears to be nothing more than an instigator. I spoke about this last night at leagues, and described the HALL to...

    Re: 9ball more skill to play?

    I have played a lot of 9ball and don't understand all the comments about "long stroking shots". With an intelligent break and prudent play you should be able to keep most of your shots on one end of...

    Re: My new pool club

    1Time, it seems to me you are kind of snobish about what you consider a pool room for serious players. IMHO all of the seroius players would appreciate a place like this. Our local hall is ok, but...

    Re: What makes an APA SL7?

    The whole deal with the APA and their ratings is the reason that I will probably never play in APA again. I am not a top level player, (I think I was an sl5 in 8 ball) but I was facing sl3 and 4s...

    I will always mantain that the best way for you to play a table is not the the best for anyone else. For example lay out a table with a broken rack of balls and have five pros write down how they...
