    I don't care who you are or how you play, if you took home 12K in a tournament that is fantastic! Congrats to you.

    Confusion!.......Spin the Cue ball or Center Cue ball MOSTLY?

    One thing I've experienced in life is that greatness at something does not make someone a great teacher. I'm not referencing the OP, just making a statement. A friend of mine said he recently took lessons from CJ Wiley and how it opened up many ways at looking and approaching things. He couldn't...

    Funny Comment from a teammate on my cue.

    I haven't either. I've played with his stainless and micarta jointed cues, but hope to try one of his ivory jointed cues. His stainless aren't as stiff as the Schons.

    Have you ever played with one of Bob's customs with an ivory joint? I know you prefer ivory.

    what's the best cue you ever hit with, and why?

    I like these threads because they can turn you on to a maker you may have never heard of. I've played with countless production cues, but not many customs. There's my disclaimer. My favorite is a Runde 99. It felt like it was made for me, although it wasn't. The balance and feel are what...

    Bob Owen "Balabushka trbute" exc cond

    I want to sleep in my bed just a little more than I want this beauty. If I bought it, my wife would have me sleeping in the rose garden. Gorgeous cue, good luck.

    Horrors! Spirit Airlines and cues!

    Glad the gear is safe. I was wondering recently about pros traveling with their gear. I saw an episode of What's in the Case, where Efren puts a big fragile sticker on his case when he travels. Seems risky.

    How to get a Fargo rating? I'm sure it's been posted millions of times but I need it.

    Some of us don't want to know what their Fargo Rating may be:)

    Which case do you prefer -tubes or felt liners

I was mainly looking for a cheap case that I could use for storage. I bought one through Seyberts, not really looking that closely at it. I had never used a tube case...
