I've been using blue diamond chalk for a while. It seems like my ferrule is getting worn on in the middle, where I chalk. Anyone else have this problem??


On my previous cue I used a predator shaft (notoriously soft ferrule) and regular chalk, and I never had this happen. I'm thinking its the chalk, because its more abrasive...

Do you mean the tip wears down faster? I'm not sure I understand how the ferrule wears down from chalk unless you are not using a tip at all.

Don't touch the ferrule with the chalk. Wipe the chalk onto the tip. Use brand new chalk.

All due respect, but if you're getting chalk on your ferrule, you're chalking your cue incorrectly.

If you are rubbing chalk on the middle of your ferrule, you aren't chalking correctly.

I lent a Tad to a guy for a money session.
I got it back with chalk on the ferrule.
That was years ago.
I refuse to even let him take a practise shot with any cue i own since.

I don't care what chalk you're using if you're wearing on your ferrule, you'd better reconsider your chalking technique. If you're chalking properly you shouldn't even be touching your ferrule. You're supposed to be chalking the tip only. Look when you chalk. When a piece of chalk has a hole drilled down the middle of it throw it away or trim the sides down with a jack knife to remove the hole.

Consider cutting a new cube of chalk in half, I can assure you that the middle of your ferrule will not get touched.

I have been using Diamond chalk for sometime. It is a great chalk works very well, I'm a fan of the chalk. I have had no problem with the chalk at all, it does'nt effect the tip wearing, and for sure not the ferruel. The chalk should never be a factor to your ferruel. Keep the ferruel clean at all times.:smile:

NewStroke, you read my mind.
As for me, I quit using chalk years ago and began using small squares of 100 grit sandpaper and two sided tape instead of a cue tip. I just stick a little square of sandpaper on the end of the ferrule and spin whitey like a crazy person. :smile:

No need to get defensive, we're only trying to help. No one talked down to you. You were only offered humble advice from people who certainly know what they're talking about. For chalk to wear down the diameter of a ferrule, something wrong is definitely happening.

In your opening statement you said the ferrule on your cue was showing a wear mark where you had been chalking it, in which case you do need chalking instructions such as these good people have so graciously provided.

I see this attitude in the town I'm from all the time. They all know everything there is to know about pool, but they all have a blue ring around their ferrule. I gave up a long time ago. Oh..and if you want to gamble, its $2. a game, 8-ball on a bar box.

I have learned the hard way that ferrule conditioning is as important as tip maintenance When I am ready for a new tip I will cut off the old tip then turn the cue upside down and place just the ferrule into a saucer of milk. Don't use 2%, whole milk or half % half will condition a ferrule so hard a cat cant scratch it;).

You are sooooo right ! The cueball takes it bothways. getting hit with the hardtips loaded with chalk (abrasive) and then colliding with other balls at warp speed(20-30mph). Thus the cueball will wear down quicker than the others will. The one ball is next in line to be smaller than the rest. Wht you ask? It spends alot of time beinng the headball in popular rotation games. these game are not started with a soft safty break, no it's a smashing occurance. Check out the old balls at you local poolhall and report back to us here. tyvmia:cool:

I bet 95% of pool players don't chalk correctly.
When I started chalking the cue ball, instead of my ferrule, my game went up dramatically.
Not to mention, (OT) no more wearing out ferrules.

Seriously,
1. Why are you chalking the middle of your ferrule?
Ask YOURSELF this question the next time you do it.
Wait for the answer to come before you do anything else.

2. I'm thinking you have bored most of the way through your chalk by
using a twisting/ drilling motion and the wall of chalk well is now, inadvertently
rubbing the ferrule during your drilling of the chalk well.
The abrasion level of the chalk is dwarfed by your seemingly harmless chalk drilling business.

This should be at least the tenth response with the same basic message.
So, I'll treat you to one of my favorite movie lines of all time.

"The first time someone calls you a horse, you punch him in the mouth.
The second time someone calls you a horse, well...
maybe it's time to go look for a saddle" -anyone know?

I grind up cubes of chalk in a coffee grinder, and keep it in ziploc bags. Before I start a match, I dump a bunch of chalk dust in my hands and rub them together really well. Then, in a display of showmanship, I throw the remaining chalk dust in the air and yell, "Whoooooo!!!!" much like LeBron James and Kevin Garnett do before games.

When the chalk dust comes back down, it settles nicely onto my cue tip and my teammates' tips as well. 60% of the time, it works every time.

It helps if you draw a tiny pentagram on your ferulle and dip your tip in holy water before you start a game. It will help repel the evil abrasive chalk dust
thats trying to take possession of your ferulle.

Since I've been using Blue Diamond chalk, my ferrule has been wearing down somewhat, more in the middle. This did not happen when I was using a predator shaft (which have very soft ferrules) and regular Master Chalk. Please don't tell me I need chalking lessons. I was talking to another cue maker they said the Blue Diamond Chalk is more abrasive (that's why it sticks better), and its probably wearing down my ferrule. Also I noticed my shaft has worn quite a bit. The ferrule when measure was originally 12.5mm, but now 11.6mm at the top and 12.2mm on the bottom. This is from play, chalk, and wear. I never sand my shaft, even when I have it cleaned. I would assume its the chalk, don't you think???


Have you had any tips replaced on this shaft?

I'd love to see how much chalk it takes to take 1mm off of a ferrule on accident.

so Ace, did we misunderstand you? I see this kind of attitude in people all the time. They receive constructive criticism, but rather than use it and learn and grow from it, they become defensive and try to change the focus...

You might be the best player on the planet, but whether you win or lose, it has absolutely *no bearing* on whether or not you put chalk on correctly. Essentially what happened to you just now is that you asked a question, and got an answer that you were not expecting. Why should that upset you, and compel you to have to challenge people to play? Why change the subject? The point is, no one knows the answer to your question, the same way most of us do not know exactly what happens when you throw your car into reverse while going 80 mph on the highway. It just isn't something people do. I would seriously value your response a lot if you could explain to me why you got all defensive and tried to change the subject, rather then just taking what people said to heart? I'm not jerking you around, I seriously wish I could understand that type of behavior better. Anyway good luck with your ferrule.

I don't think a cuemaker is going to know any more about chalking than any other player who chalks a cue thousands of times. I think you asked the right people but you don't like the answer. You got a little pissy and people started making a joke of the thread. Normally people who play well know the correct way to use equipment and bangers are associated with blue ferrules, excessive use of powder etc...Maybe you do play well, but I don't think blindly calling someone out to play from this forum is such a good idea. A lot of these mofos can play!!!

Ace, are you using a tip? Ya know, I found putting a tip on the ferrule help striking the cue ball and not getting chalk on your ferrule. You should try this, IMHO it works very well.

One time, when I was seven, I played at my grandpa's and his cues had the tips busted off. Aside frome being seven, I had a hard time workin the cue ball. Once we super glued the tip back on and put some Sportscraft chalk on I ran the sh!t.

And if your wondering, I did have a hard time posing this question with a straight face.

All you're going to get posting there is the same handful of responses you got here. They're all going to tell you to keep the chalk off your ferrule, like we did.

Did you ever wonder why you got 10-15 responses that said the same thing? Maybe they're right. There is no problem with the chalk. I use Blue Diamond all the time, and I have no wear on any of the three ferrules on my cues. One last time, you shouldn't be getting chalk on your ferrule, or else, yes, it will wear down. It has nothing to do with the brand of chalk though. And now for a public service announcement ...

Here at AZB, we know you have a choice in billiards forums, and we thank you for choosing us. However, we now consider this matter closed. Please direct all unwarranted, overly defensive, borderline pissy comments and all ridiculous, unnecessary challenges you hope aren't actually fulfilled at someone else from this point forward.

Don't touch the ferrule with the chalk. Wipe the chalk onto the tip. Use brand new chalk.

I must not understand your problem. When I play chalk never gets on my ferrule, for one reason I don't use worn out chalk with a big hole in it. I try to use fairly new chalk and i'm very careful to not let the chalk touch my ferrule. Blue Diamond chalk is pretty expensive as far as chalk goes and I can understand using it as long as you can and maybe you need to be more careful when you chalk your tip. Just wipe the chalk on your tip instead of sticking the tip all the way in to the bottom of the worn piece of chalk.

When the cube of chalk gets worn into deep, take a file to the edges so that when you use it, the chalk does not rub against the middle of the ferrule.

When the chalk gets worn too deep for that, it is time to buy a new cube using your bet some earnings.

I may not be as great of a player as you are (in your own mind) but I at least know that.

BTW if you ever make it to my neck of the woods we can play some, I can at least teach you how to chalk your tip.

Was this was a clever way to get a money match?

Railbirds are those that are watching a pool match and not posters - do you mean lurkers and or trolls?

Not all railbirds are nits. Not all nits are railbirds.

Wipe the chalk onto the tip and do not drill the tip into the chalk.:)

Well, according to what he has posted in the ATCM section...he has had the tip changed roughly 20 times (he plays a lot), and he likes a very rounded tip shape with little to no sidewall.

I like a rounded tip shape as well, and am no fan of a 'skyscraper' on the end of my cue...but you really need to leave some sort of a sidewall, if for no other reason than you are more likely to put small chips in the ferrule.

That aside...I have played with a very low tip (actually, just had it replaced), and even then, when chalking properly (a simple light swiping action), I have never gotten chalk on the ferrule....even when chalking the edges of the tip.

Just how much do you chalk? Part of the virtues of the Blue Diamond chalk is that it goes on and stays on. I have actually played several games without ever really needing to chalk. I do not make this a regular practice...just wanted to see how long it actually lasted. If chalking is part of your pre-shot routine, then a quick swipe or two should suffice. Anything more than that on every shot is just making a friggin' mess...chalk all over not only your tip, but the CB and the cloth, not to mention your shaft.

As a side note...when you come to a forum, or anywhere else for that matter, and ask a question and receive answers from various members that are pretty much all telling you the same thing...you might want to consider that they actually know what they're talking about, and take it as good advice, even if it wasn't what you wanted to hear. Just because you play well, doesn't mean that you know how to properly maintain your equipment. You're not going to win any friends over here when you insult the very people you apparently had enough respect of to ask this question.

Upon reading further into the ATCM thread you started...you might want to find a new cue repairman, as it seems to me you have had a improper tip install somewhere down the line. I am just not buying that a ferrule starting out at 12.5mm, and ending up at 11.6mm at the tip end of the ferrule, and 12.2mm at the bottom end of the ferrule is due exclusively to chalk wear. And if the shaft is flush to the ferrule, then some one has taken the shaft down as well...at least at the ferrule end of it. A proper ferrule will not have chalk lines in the middle, and a taper (unless you specifically requested it that way).

As someone mentioned, that even if he wants to get the most value from a piece of BD, you can still do that without deep well drilling as Lisa said.
My chalk is pretty much flat with the exception of lines that go from corner to corner. When the lines get too deep, I change the way I scuff the chalk
to even it up.
I use a chalk holder and when the chalk goes below the lip of the holder, I cram a bit of paper towel in it to jack it up.
After that, I replace it and leave the piece on a table for someone else to find. Even at $3 a cube, you still get months of play from one piece.

Okay all you holier than thous, I know the chalk is supposed to go on the tip and not the ferrule and I chalk carefully, most of the time.

If you are serious - and I guess you may not be

1. hold cue straight up with bumper on the floor for stability
( this also makes sure you don't chalk over the bed of the table,
a sin beyond redemption which, IMHO, should be a hanging offence).

2. tilt cue 30 degrees.

3. apply chalk in your normal manner

I defy you to get chalk on anything but the tip using this method.
Well, maybe some on the floor...

As an observer of people for a long time there are those that get very defensive when they don't get the answer they are looking for.
Also it is a common ploy to change the subject when you have lost or are losing an argument.
I can assure the poster that all the answers on how to chalk a tip are correct and will in no way damage any part of your cue.
I think the best answer here was if people call you a horse more then once you should look for a saddle.

I'll be honest... I'm a chalk pig. I get chalk everywhere. My left hand looks as if it has been dipped in chalk after a lengthy amount of play - and that's after frequent hand washings. I chalk with the wiping motion as everyone says is correct - after every shot - but chalk seems to attack my left hand anyway. As a consequence, I get chalk on my ferrule, chalk on my shaft, and I've occasionally chalked my face. Chalk is particularly attracted to the areas between my ring finger and middle finger (beats me!).

Sometimes I catch myself chalking my tip the incorrect way and it simply breaks my heart. :grin: This usually happens if my opponent is making a long run and I'm watching his play too closely. My left hand somehow gets a piece of chalk in it and does the entire operation without my consent. My right hand isn't involved in this at all, whew!

The heck of it is, I don't even care. I've never had a ferrule worn down as a result of chalk (and have used/sometimes do use Blue Diamond). I wipe down my shaft and ferrule occasionally and just keep washing the rest. A magic eraser pretty much takes care of what is left on the cue so that gets used every once in awhile.

I believe this situation is a product of using drilled out chalk, using
a twisting motion, and shoddy tip installations.

The chalking of your cue in this fashion will give your ferrule an hourglass shape.

Is Blue Diamond going to wear your ferrule out faster?

I don't think anyone has done a study.

I do think that you should try wiping the chalk from Center To Edge.
Start with a new piece and try to knock that little crater wall down immediately.

Also, find a different repairman.

No offense intended.

oldzilla
07-03-2010, 11:34 AM
i think alot is going on here. if the user dammages the ferrule with deep dish chalks by just drilling his tip in there what is the repair guy gonna do.
if it was me i would ask if he wants a new ferrule. then tell him if he declines that i have to take the ferrule down to get the damage out and make it look good. therefore the ferrule will decrease in size from the where it starts to being much smaller at the tip. thats all that can be done and that is what it sounds like happened here. savy?

Agreed. As long as "your normal manner" consists of swiping the chalk across the tip, like a broom on a floor, then you'll be fine. Always move the chalk over the cue tip, rather than moving the cue into the chalk.

True enough 9Ball - all us smart guys know how to chalk right,
But if you look closely, you might notice this post was in response
to Dave Nelson, who claims that even tho he 'chalks carefully',
he still sometimes gets chalk on his ferrule.

Statements from Blue Diamond.

What benefits can a billiard player expect from using Blue Diamond chalk?

You can expect greater security in knowing that your cue tip is chalked with the best chalk in the world. Using blue diamond chalk will increase your score overall by allowing you to hone your stroke to perfect ball positioning.

Blue diamond chalk will stain your shaft and ferrule less than other chalks, and even more importantly it does not turn to powder as quickly as other chalks, so your chalk cuebe will last longer

Well, according to what he has posted in the ATCM section...he has had the tip changed roughly 20 times (he plays a lot), and he likes a very rounded tip shape with little to no sidewall.

I like a rounded tip shape as well, and am no fan of a 'skyscraper' on the end of my cue...but you really need to leave some sort of a sidewall, if for no other reason than you are more likely to put small chips in the ferrule.

That aside...I have played with a very low tip (actually, just had it replaced), and even then, when chalking properly (a simple light swiping action), I have never gotten chalk on the ferrule....even when chalking the edges of the tip.

Just how much do you chalk? Part of the virtues of the Blue Diamond chalk is that it goes on and stays on. I have actually played several games without ever really needing to chalk. I do not make this a regular practice...just wanted to see how long it actually lasted. If chalking is part of your pre-shot routine, then a quick swipe or two should suffice. Anything more than that on every shot is just making a friggin' mess...chalk all over not only your tip, but the CB and the cloth, not to mention your shaft.

As a side note...when you come to a forum, or anywhere else for that matter, and ask a question and receive answers from various members that are pretty much all telling you the same thing...you might want to consider that they actually know what they're talking about, and take it as good advice, even if it wasn't what you wanted to hear.

Many many moons ago when I was sure every idea I had was a good one cuz I was just young enough to know everything,I formulated a plan for keeping my tip round. I would use the chalk! Yes the chalk.

Here's how it works:
Find a pretty deep piece of chalk.
Insert tip to bottom of well.
Tilt (this is key) the chalk till the outer ring/top of the chalk rested on the ferrule (bout the middle btw).
Drill baby drill!
Repeat with each chalking.

Two things resulted from this master plan.
One was my tip indeed stayed round with no additional effort. Success!!

Two is my ferrule looked like a freakin hour glass. I forget how long it took to actually impart this accidental dip, but it was deep. Deep enough for people to ask "dude, wtf is wrong with your cue?" lol.

You know what they about the best layed plans.

True story. Not proud, just saying.

Chalk is particularly attracted to the areas between my ring finger and middle finger (beats me!).

Ya know, this happens to me. Not all the time but it happens every so often. Not a little of blue between these fingers either....when it happens its a lot of blue..and all the way down to where the fingers meet. It's puzzling as all hell.

Come to think of it, perhaps it happens because we slide into our bridge hand landing zone, fingers spread, instead of planting the hand? Not a usual habit for me, but it makes sense. Sort of a reverse chalk dust snow plow kinda effect?

One more thing... the loser MUST admit that they lost because they chalked incorrectly! ( BTW, by loser, I mean ace)


To ace:

Whenever you are in a disagreement with someone, and you have to COMPLETELY change the ENTIRE topic to TRY and save face, you MUST admit that you have just admitted how weak your position is!

You had NOTHING, and nowhere to go, so then it is ... uh, ...um.... well,,,,, I think I can play, bet something.

Well, it looks like you got your wish ( actually, I KNOW you did not want this, but it is YOUR bed).


One more thing, if a guy in a bar is acting like a douche, and challenges another guy to a fight, EVEN IF HE HAPPENS TO WIN the fight- It in NO WAY changes the FACT that he is a douche! Trust me, I know. I used to work security in bars.



This situation reminds me of a time when I was beating a guy pretty bad in a pool match, and he wanted to challenge me to a basketball game! I am NOT making this up! ( I am like 5'10" over 260 pounds, not much of a BB player, I might add, never claimed to be either!) I just found it tooo funny!

I was like " I tell you what, the next time you catch me on a basketball court talking shit, I PROMISE you I will play you for as much as you want! But seeing we are in a POOL HALL, why don't we play some pool?"


In other words, WTF does that have to do with ANYTHING? How old are you? 8?


BTW, my grandfather can beat up your grandfather! This PROVES you are not chalking correctly! I know even YOU can't argue this clear line of reasoning!

Okay, WTF is wrong (or should I say Wong) here? I show up to Ace's Queens hangout and ask around for him to play a couple sets. A younger kid jumps on his cell phone and call him up. The kid hangs up and tells me that Ace will be right down.

I'm looking out the window and hear this God awful buzzing and a skinny kid pulls up on a scooter with flames painted on the sides and a big plastic 9 ball on the handle bars. His helmet has an 8 ball painted on it. I know this is my mark.

He walks in with a trophy in his hand, puts it on the table and says "I hear you want to play". I say that I am and he straightens his trophy and says "how much". I tell him a race to 20 for 1K. He says that's alot of money, how about we start with a 3-ball race to 5 for $10. I grin and say ok. He says "I'm gonna leave my trophy here while I put my cue together."

He opens his PVC pipe case and out falls an original Minnesota Fats Lava cue. I notice his ferrule looks like someone tied off their finger with fishing line. He goes to chalk and the chalk slips from his fingers, to my surprise it never hit the ground. The chalk slid down the cue and stopped about 3/4 of the way down the shaft. He asks me if I have an extra piece of chalk and if it's common for me to go through a piece each day.

I just shook my head and walked away hoping someone else will validate this story.

Well, Ace, you have officially dug yourself into that hole you never should have. Remember that scene in Casino when the mobsters make Nicky and his brother dig their own graves, and then they beat them mercilessly with baseball bats and bury them alive?

You have already dug your own grave by repeatedly asking if anyone wants to play some, and now you have a response. And if you take Bartram up on his offer, you'll be handing him the proverbial baseball bat. And my guess is he will bury you alive.

On the other hand, if you back down now, you will be laughed out of this forum.

That's what we call a lose-lose situation. See what happens when you bite the hands that feed you? All any of us wanted to do was help, and you made it worse and worse with every word you typed. At this point, I hope you begrudgingly accept Bartram's offer and go bust. You deserve it for spitting in all of our faces when we offered you the advice you requested.

I grind up cubes of chalk in a coffee grinder, and keep it in ziploc bags. Before I start a match, I dump a bunch of chalk dust in my hands and rub them together really well. Then, in a display of showmanship, I throw the remaining chalk dust in the air and yell, "Whoooooo!!!!" much like LeBron James and Kevin Garnett do before games.

When the chalk dust comes back down, it settles nicely onto my cue tip and my teammates' tips as well. 60% of the time, it works every time.

This thread is real long but when I think of it I like to cut new pieces of chalk in half. Chalk is by far the cheapest thing when it comes to pool, makes no sense to use the chalk that you can put your whole ferrule into.

P.S. I just read the last few pages. Is the rail open for when you and Chavez drive to Ohio to bust Bartram. You guys can make more money if you bet some online. You already knew that though.

Oh and I don't use Blue Diamond chalk so I have no answer to your question.

Ohio is dead on the way from Mexico to New York so maybe one of the genius' in the Chavez camp should have figured that out when planning his getaway from Mexico. It would have saved him waaaaaaaaaaay many miles coming up and waaaaaaaaaaay many miles taking his busted ass back to Mexico.

Umm, yes you did put out an open challenge. Then ducked it!

Why didn't you just say "no thanks" to bartram instead of talking about someone else who is not involved in this conversation in any way?

Sorry, but your character is showing through from beginning to end. The very simple reason you are not getting ANY respect is because you do not deserve any! You come on here asking for opinions, then trashing everyone for giving them. THEN throw out a challenge which has NOTHING to do with the topic of conversation, THEN DUCK THAT CHALLENGE WHEN IT WAS ACCEPTED.


So can we get an official " NO THANKS" on the offer that was accepted? Or are you going to continue to pretend somehow that you are not ducking and running?


I have been pretty active in this from early on. I would also be more than willing to play you. I am a verified nobody. I WILL NOT come to you. I am not trash talking and not wanting to start a whole bunch of bs on a match that is 90% not gonna happen. But if you find your way down in my neck of the woods, you will get played. I am NOT willing to get into a back and forth trash talking contest about every detail unless you are REALLY going to come down here.

I am just calling them like I see them, and you have not given any respect to anyone, and that is the reason you are not getting any back.

I've been using blue diamond chalk for a while. It seems like my ferrule is getting worn on in the middle, where I chalk. Anyone else have this problem??


On my previous cue I used a predator shaft (notoriously soft ferrule) and regular chalk, and I never had this happen. I'm thinking its the chalk, because its more abrasive...


Don't touch the ferrule with the chalk. Wipe the chalk onto the tip. Use brand new chalk.


I am really impressed.....over 4000 views on this thread and 12 pages of posts from a question that was answered by the second reply.

Now I will have to go read the whole damn thing so I can see who did the "internet challange"....

"You come to my area"...."No you come to my area" ......"I am not going to come to your area from my area"......."Well...I sure as hell won't be going to your area"........"I will tell you what then....if you are ever in my area......I will play you some......(meanwhile...neither would ever know who the other one is....or that they were even in that town..until after one or the other left town)

If you're too lazy to try to read all of these posts, here is a summary of what the thread has evolved into.

ok my friend ill come play you in your house.
you say bet something?
what dos that mean to you
ill come play you for 10 k
lets dance

ill play you some.
just let me know.
Listen Bartam,

You had a game. Chavez, he came all the waaaaaaaaaay from Mexico to NYC because you told him you wanted to play him some. Then what? You told him to go to Ohio! WTF! Oh wait you were busy...

get your story right kid.
and im busy but i dont have to hit 1 pool ball to beat you.
and i have many times tried to play him.
so you called every one on az billiards out i said yes and like i thought you said NO.
its cool i knew you would not play just remember there are a lot of pool players here on az billiards who would rob you.

The man smuggled into the country to come play you some. Then you didn't want to play. Nice move.

i have tried to play him many times.
we have been at dcc at the same time i always ask to play.
why do people think i always have to go where they want to play?
ill play at us open or dcc thats the only 2 times a year ill be playing now.
but if you want to play i dont need to practice.
have a nice day

All the mongoloids know where to find each other. Especially on the Internet. You got the finest railbirds in the country in front of the computer. Birds find your perch. I didnít call out the universe, or say Iím going to play any world-beater. What I did say is Iíd play anyone on this thread that was talking trash about me, and thinks I canít chalk a cue or play a lick. Pulldapin I highly doubt you are going to come from Oahu to come play me. If you do, please come get some.

I said that real loud to someone at Masters (many people have asked me about it), and the next few days, I see a T-shirt, being made. No one NYC says stuff. Then I hear you like what Rob Pole said and want to make a T-shirt from that. WTF.You can't even think of your own T-shirts..."

Nope. The only thing that went down was ace.
Did you ever watch the Discovery channel and see the one where Mongol horseman play a game where they take a young goat and try to get it from one end of a huge field to the other. By the time they're through that poor goat is torn to smithereens. Kinda reminds you of old ace here. :)

I laughed out loud when I read this! And I kid you not!
FUNNY! I could just picture the scene in my mind! HA HA HA!

AK




I grind up cubes of chalk in a coffee grinder, and keep it in ziploc bags. Before I start a match, I dump a bunch of chalk dust in my hands and rub them together really well. Then, in a display of showmanship, I throw the remaining chalk dust in the air and yell, "Whoooooo!!!!" much like LeBron James and Kevin Garnett do before games.

When the chalk dust comes back down, it settles nicely onto my cue tip and my teammates' tips as well. 60% of the time, it works every time.

storyline;
Vergara took a two-game lead in the opening set of the true double elimination final, but Wong came roaring back with a six-pack. They traded racks to 7-4, before Vergara chalked up two in a row to pull within one at 7-6. They traded racks again to 8-7 before Vergara tied it at hill-hill. Vergara scratched on the final break, allowing Wong to run out and post the opening set win.

You know, I honestly don't like jumping on people and acting like a bully.

Wong was s*tty to me in the thread and through PM... and accused me of stealing his "line" for a shirt. A line that has been around for a looooong time. So that set me off. If we have business to handle, we can do it off the public forum. He acted childish and drug me down to his level. So I apologize to the forum.

Ok. Lets get some perspective.

How slow are we talking about?

And what type of slow is it?

Down on the shot and taking a billion strokes slow?
Getting up and down repeatedly undecided as what to do, chalking the tip (in his case, the ferrule) repeatedly? SIDE NOTE. Ferrule wear:lots of time spent on chalking the ferrule.
Getting stuck and just staring at the table for hours on end before committing to a specific shot?

I to would not have entered anymore after the advice was given.

He didn't accept it well then went to the woofing and also name calling.

Oh hell, please don't apologize! This has been the most fun since the last Grady thread... It's good to have something a little lively going on every once in a while, and the op is the one who brought all of this on.

I've been reading it since the beginning, chuckling all the while. When he started telling folks to "come bet some" I knew this would become a good read, and it has not disappointed.

And Mr.Wong needs not worry about trying to get me to "bet some', since I'm broke and can't play a lick anyway. I do have fun watching others make fools of themselves tho... Ace vs Bartrum, streamed. THAT would be cool!

Superstar, it is the worst kind of slow you could imagine. He walks around the table twenty times on every shot then he gets down to shoot, then he gets back up looks the person he is playing right in the eye and laughs at them sitting in the chair because he knows they are suffering. He then proceeds to walk around the table another twenty times while placing his stick on the table checking every angle possible then he final shoots. He repeats this process for everyball. It is so brutal. Plus Mikey runs out so it is hard to fade.

To put it in presepective, I played him two races to 11 9ball and I won the first set in a run away 11 to 4 and I shoot quick. He beat me the second set 11 to 9 and the time was 76 dollars. Time is 11 dollars an hour. Unreal.

Laying the stick on the table for angle perspective is a foul. some call it a nitty foul but none the less it is a foul.
btw did he take stalling lessons from CW ? lol
