Filler is super strong, but he shoots soooo fast. Even Shaw can slow his game down from time to time. I'd love to see Joshua do that.

I honestly dont know how you can shoot any straighter than 200mph full table center pocket like Shaw does.

Filler is already a force to be reckoned with at any tournament he enters.

Joshua is only 19, turns 20 next month, and is engaged to be married.

He seems much more mature than his years, and if he dedicates himself to the sport, I have little doubt that he will win many world titles.

Talking Young guns 25 and under - 09-14-2017, 09:56 AM

If young gun is 25 years and under, then here are most of the best young guns now-

Ko Ping Chung
Skyler Woodward
Johann Chua
Jeff Ignacio
Wang Can
Klenti Kaci
Wu Kun Lin
Joshua Filler
Aloysius Yapp
Franscisco Sanchez Ruiz
Billy Thorpe
Ruslan Chinahov
Mario He

If you put all above to play each other in a tournament, my picks would be Ko, Skyler or Johann to top it simply because of their experience, confidence and roundness of their game.

If only Landon shuffet wasn't so smart to leave pool, he'd be at the top of this young gun chart probably, except not past Shaw, who's 30 and not a young gun...

Also johann and Jeff play an incredible speed when on, but IMHO none of them have the consistency or beautiful stroke that Little KO has.

Apparently Shaw turned 29 yesterday. Happy birthday, Jayson!

Filler is likely to be on the Euro Mosconi Cup team. I expect Shaw to be on it, too.

It's been pretty quiet on the forum regarding news of Anton Raga. Does anyone in the know still thinks he shoots top tier pool in the Philippines?

Call that wooden box gun, forget the funeral

i just remember when Brandon Shuff was 24 and everyone was calling him a young gun.
Same with Shane Van Boening
At 25 they were no longer considered young guns.
Just my observation on the gun or young thing


player......Josswest, KMurrell, Dave Kikel, South West
breaker....Bruce Ryan
jumper.....Custom no named 8-point
shooter....Sig Sauer P226 357
cutter.......Spyderco-Massad Ayoob
