    Re: 24 OF 64 PLAYERS GOT PAID. WHAT A BUST!

    I think the last 17-24 players are lucky they got anything at all. Most of the tourneys around here pay out 16 spots with a 64 person field. I understand that group is playing for a larger portion of...

    No real reason, just been thinking about it. I have tried the Predator BK and my friends phenolic tipped break cue and was curioous to what people thought is desirable in a break cue. I may just...

    Re: Pool Snobs!!!!

    I have sometimes noticed that as well. Some of it is ego, some of it is just their personality that they carry all the time. I never got any "hi, how ya doin's" or respect from one such player who...

    Re: Tim Scruggs Sneaky Pete

    I sold mine on ebay about 3 years ago now for more than I paid for it. It was all beat up and chalk blued and needed refinishing badly. Someone liked it.

    It was a great hitting cue and I am really...

    Re: How to get position on eight ball

    I would probably cheat the pocket if that is a possibility and use high left english to spin the cueball back to the bottom of the table. Have to put a hard smooth stroke on it. The throw would be...

    Try these steps:
    1. Take out coin (I prefer a quarter)
    2. Flip into air in a spinning motion and falling onto a hard surface.
    3. Call Heads or Tails (Heads being Moori, Tails being Talisman)

    Yeah that seems like a pretty good deal. After all was said and done I did not care for the hit of it. But it may have been because of the fact the taper was a little long making the shaft less...

    Re: Tiger X partial shafts.
