Who is the Best Young Gun? Shaw,Thorpe,Joshua Filler? - 09-11-2017, 10:02 AM

I love to see these Young Stars shoot,and develop their games. I know that there are many Great ,young Players Worldwide,and here in the States,such as Skyler Woodward and Justin Bergman. Do you see any of these Young Guns challenging Wu,Brothers Ko,Shane,Orcullo,or Alex anytime soon?

Filler was really impressive in the Longoni Benelux Open over the weekend.


He looks like he has all the tools to be a really special player. Looking forward to seeing him in bigger tournaments in the future.

Playing Cue: Predator 8K-1 w/ 8" extension and Tiger Pro X shaft

Funny thing is, as the young guns get older.....so do the OLD guns, so there's always going to be a passing lane coming up sooner or later

Klenti Kaci from Albania. He's only 18 and no one in New York wants to play him.

IMO, the term young gun should stop once the player is age 22 or 23. Maybe even age 20.

I am also impressed with Kaci's game, Klenti has a very mature mental game and will be terrorizing his peers soon.

Phil Burford was someone I thought would be making a big splash in the American pool scene after seeing him play well in 2013. I have not heard much about Phil in the last few years.

If those 3 names played a round robin race to 100, would anyone really not believe that Jayson Shaw would not come out on top right now? Agree with the rest of the thread though and can't really say that Shaw is a young gun. He's 30 or near it and has been around a while.


Pressure makes diamonds. Fire refines gold.

Play it like you mean it.

Playing Cue: Predator Ikon 2-5 w/ 314-2
Break Cue: Mezz PBII
Jump Cue: Gulyassy Reaper
Case: Instroke

Of those 3 it is Joshua Filler who is the straightest shooter of them all (yes, Shaw included). As a pure shooter I rank Joshua along Wu and Earl in his prime. As of now Joshua doesnt have equally strong defence to his attack game but that is just a matter of time if he works on that part of his game. Also Joshua is still prone to mental errors which may cost him match here and there. I believe if Joshua keeps working on his weaknesses he will attack world championships crown in 2-3 years.
