    Legal query: Video in pool room?

    Hi everyone. I have a question for anyone and everyone with experience and knowledge of this subject. I got a new digital camcorder for the purpose, primarily, of recording MYSELF at the pool table and using it to improve my own game. I have also taken some video of various tournament matches...

    "Skins" style ring America tournament?

    I don't know where the "America" came from... lol There are a couple of small (avg < 25 players) tournaments where I live, at 2 or 3 venues. No one is ever happy with the one 9-ball handicap event, so the #2 room is starting their own. I'm sick of it, so I have an idea for a limited-field, low...

    In Search Of: The Perfect Case...

    OK everyone, I am looking for opinions and input. I have been carrying my cues in an Instroke 3x7 Cowboy for 10 years. It has served me well, but it has some issues. Shoulder strap SUCKS (mine actually tore off, so it's moot), it weighs like 35 freaking pounds when it's loaded, and least of...

    AWESOME customer service from Joss Cues!

    I just wanted to share with everyone, today I got my cue back from Joss, it was being repaired. I have had my N7 since 1995, and it has served me well. It had a cracked (3 places) butt cap, so I sent it to Dan Janes a few weeks ago to be fixed. Also had him put a new white with blue linen wrap...

    How to ruin a weekly tournament

    Elephant ear?

    OK someone please reassure me that this is EE PRINT using cowhide or pigskin, and not ACTUAL elephant ear leather... I am OK with the pre-ban ivory used on cues, since it is already here and catalogued, though I don't personally have any cues with Ivory, but if some cruel, heartless MFer is...

    I have free access to a Harbor Freight ...

    My friend has a harbor freight 7 x 12 mini lathe sitting in his garage, that he has never used. We took it out of the box about four years ago ran it to see if it works and set it on the shelf. He told me I could use it, modify it, even take it with me anytime I wanted to do any cue work that I...

    LD Shafts are bobo, I don't care what you say...

    This should stir up a good discussion. I have played with predator, OB, Tiger, and others. They all play solid. But the low-deflection shaft was invented to figure out a way to use junk wood and make money. It is a copout, an excuse not to learn the proper way to age, turn, and stabilize good...
