    New room, Ox Billiards in Seattle

    Seattle is a very expensive area in general, look at the housing market ! 🤯 This is a fair price for that market. It's nice to hear of a place opening instead of closing.

    Newbie question

    There's no such thing as overkill. Test a bunch of shafts out, find one that feels good to you and stick with it. A standard maple shaft will work just fine and have good feedback. Low deflection shafts can make it easier to learn aiming with English. Carbon shafts are dent resistant. But...
