    Is Schmidt's and charlie 626 Legit

    I've seen most or all of that bitter history and, to be fair, I think both of you would step up and do just that. . . . Even without the fire!

    Rasson vs Diamond Tables

    I love my Diamond and I'm not replacing it, but the Rasson certainly looks cool. My one complaint is the ball scuffing from the pockets, which has been an issue with Diamonds for a long time. Makes me wonder about Rasson's claim that its pockets reduce scuffing. Also, do Rassons have a ball...

    Funny pic/gif thread...

    Some years back, my kids really wanted to stay up late on Christmas Eve, hide out, and trap Santa. I guess this is what happens when they grow up!

    Top end Segen -- Trade for Ignite 12.2 Wavy

    UPDATE: OFFER OVER. I had ordered the S-10 but after some delays, Evan sent me a fancier cue at no additional cost. But I don't know the model name or number. Weight is 19.25, wrap is leather, shafts are straight and un-dinged. One shaft has seen regular play and the other has probably hit a...

    Top End Segen 6-point Cue, 2 shafts

    I had ordered the S-10 but after some delays, Evan sent me a fancier cue at no additional cost. But I don't know the model name or number. Weight is 19.25, wrap is leather, shafts are straight and un-dinged. One shaft has seen regular play and the other has probably hit a dozen racks or so...

    A guy walks into a bar

    Actual conversation between me and a waitress last night at Society Billiards in Manhattan: ME: Do you know if anyone here plays one pocket? WAITRESS: No, all of our tables have four pockets. ME: No, all of your tables have six pockets, but that's not what I was asking. In addition to a...

    Tip replacement by mail

    In my part of DC there's no one who does even simple cue work. My effort to do them myself worked out ok but not perfect. Who is a good person to mail my shafts to for some new tips? I sent a pm to ratcues but he didn't answer. Thanks

    DC Area: New Masters League in Shirlington

    Sorry for the DC-specific post in the general forum, but there are a lot of DC-area players on AZB and this seems like a good way to reach them. I've been hoping for a Masters League to start up somewhere closer to DC than Sterling for a long time and it looks like that's about to happen...

    Home tip install question

    Hi -- There's no one close to where I live that is good for installing tips, so i'm going to start rolling my own. I don't need a lathe, but I do think it would be a lot easier if I could lock the shaft into my vice and then use my detail sander to take the tip down. Two questions: 1. Is...

    Your APA stats

    Things have been a little slow around here lately, so here's something to get some discussion going. I think it would be interesting to see the APA records of the various posters here (at least the ones who play APA). A surprising number of people here have claimed to run 5, 6, and 9 packs, but...

    Table roll: How much is ok?

    I just had my table redone and I noticed a small roll by one pocket. You can see the video of the roll here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4O1nNT3T6LM. (That's my first youtube video, hello 2004! Sorry for the shaky first 5 seconds). As you can see, when a ball is hit at pocket speed straight...

    Bonus Ball: Opinions?

    I posted this in another thread (I'm sure all of AZB has been waiting to hear wait Cory thinks!). For those who have tried Bonus Ball, what do you think? For those that haven't, why not? To get things rolling, here are my initial thoughts. 1. "Bonus ball" is a lame name. Need something...
