    Connelly San Carlos (Arizona mfg.)

    Fair Price for Used McDermott

    I have a 4 yr old G-229 that I bought new for $255. Want to offer it to our local billiard club members. Cue is in very good shape. Shaft has some mild blue discoloration from chalk and some blue chalk stain on ferrule. Is $125 to $150 a fair price? Thanks - Bruce

    Cue Acceleration - Thoughts?

    As a professional golfer for many years (played Sr PGA Tour for 6 years back in the 90's), I am aware that the best putting strokes are not in "acceleration mode at impact. Studies have shown that best putting strokes reach peak speed prior to impact and are "coasting" at desired impact speed...

    Up Coming Hip Surgery

    Hi All, Just got back into shooting pool in the last couple of months. A couple of neighbors have tables and I have been playing about twice a week for 2 hours each time. Starting to get some good shooting from time to time - had a decent 13 ball run at straight pool this afternoon but lost...
