I'm looking for a great online pool store. It must have a very wide selection of sticks, tips, shafts, accessories, balls, etc. It must have competitive prices. It must be very reputable and have a lot of happy customers.

Suggestions?

You can try www.pooldawg.com www.billiardwarehouse.com www.seyberts.com. These are a few off the top of my head. Depending on what you are looking for, there are also many great sellers right here on the forum. AZ also has their own marketplace. Can probably get the best deals on this forum. A few from some AZer's are www.allaboutthegameroom.com and www.billiardcoachstore.com. Hope this helps.

Awesome, will do.

Which brings up my next question - is the forum we're in now generally considered to be the most read/used billiards forum on the web? Or are there billiard/pool forums out there that are more used?

As with everything it pays to shop around. I doubt one place is cheaper on everything.

Having said that, I always recommend to everyone that they give AZB sponsors the shot at your business. Probably the two biggest supporting vendors are PoolDawg and Seyberts (through the AZB Marketplace) but there are others as well. There are also numerous vendors that are Club Members on this site so they at least pay a subscription fee to help support AZB.

For customer service, PoolDawg and Seyberts (again, go through the AZB Marketplace) are excellent. I've also had excellent experience through Club Members like Cheapcues.com. As for dealing with any member here, use the itrader feedback as a source for gauging service.

On principle, I tend to stay away from member/vendors that are not Club Members and/or that pitch their products in the main forum instead of in the for sale area. I just think this is rude and unfair to all the other vendors who play by the rules and limit their posts to the proper forum.

I don't know if you would consider the ebay store. I would say Nielsen's Billiards might be a choice in terms of service and price.

Your best bet is to check the AZMarketplace here first. After that I actually go with the places that advertise here like PoolDawg and Seybert's. If none of those have what I want (which is very rare) I'll do a Google search and check with one of the many I have had good business with out there.

Obviously, if you don't find what you're looking for at the AZB Marketplace then you probably won't find it a Seyberts. Gunzby, I'm sure you know, but some others may not be aware that the AZB Marketplace IS Seyberts, just with an AZB Marketplace skin over the website. I have no idea what the financial relationship is. If I had to guess I would suppose it's some sort of commission deal, but it doesn't really matter.

Nevertheless, support the vendors that support this site.:thumbup: If you find what you like at Seyberts, go through the AZB Marketplace to place the order. If you want to order something from PoolDawg I would hope you would enter their site through the forum by clicking on their banner at the top of the page rather than going directly to PoolDawg. This way they know they are getting action on their advertising dollars with AZB.

BTW, there are numerous other companies that support the site through the rotating ads at the top of the page. Tiger, Viking, OntheRail, Simonis, Accu-stats, etc. All of these companies can be best reached through clicking on the ad.

It also is nice to click on sponsors links occasionally just to visit them and let them know they are getting hits through the forum. ;)

Seyberts and Muellers (http://www.poolndarts.com) are my two favorites.

Not knocking anybody else...

The customer service I got at PoolDawg recently was awesome. Lots o' green to them.

I have had successful dealing with AZMarketplace, Seyberts, Pool Dawg and Muellers (Poolndarts.com).

Depending on what you're looking for you might have to check a few sites.

Good Luck.

I usually buy from Seybert's because of low price. I just received an e-mail from Mueller's today offering free shipping. That's a big saving especially on small items. I don't know if it's ethical to post the code here on the forum.

PoolDawg right now is free shipping on $75+ orders and the AZB Marketplace is free over $49.

The problem is, I don't think there's any pool shops in the entire city. I live in the capital of Florida- Tallahassee. If you can point me to a pool shop in the city, I'll definitely check it out.

I didn't know that there were any other. :shocked2::shrug::speechless:



I have ordered from all of the places that the others have listed. Sometimes you may find a fellow AZ'ER such as BigTruck selling certain items. I now enjoy attending the bigger tournaments and buying from the vendors. A great way to meet the seller and try the product.

I'd use www.muellers.com but I may be a bit biased. PM me if you want the free shipping code.

Ozonebilliards and PoolDawg are both excellent

I've bought stuff from all of the following internet retailers and have never had any problems:

Mueller
Seybert's
PoolDawg
Billiards Warehouse

I have also bought stuff from Ozone and while I was satisfied with their price and selection, I was turned off by the smarmy attitude of the individual who took my order over the phone. I don't see a need to put up with attitude when there are plenty of other places eager to have my business.

I'm sure there are other good sites to buy from, but I have not had any experience with them, so I can't say anything pro or con about them.

Used them a number of times. The best prices and if you have a question they are very helpful. Very fast delivery too.

Tap Tap Tap.....to you sir. I myself get a bit aggravated by thinly veiled sales pitches or infomercials posted on the main forum. I do pay attention to third party advertising however. If I see many members constantly lauding the efforts or products of a business or member seller, I put them on my pool "bucket list" for future perusal.......Dan

What kind of cues are you looking for? Production or true custom? New, unchalked?
