    cue question (not what you think)

    So I know a titlist is an old Brunswick cue with veneered points. A titlist conversion is the old Brunswick cue cut and a joint added to make a 2 piece. A fancy titlist is the conversion that's been bedazzled with ivory or MOP pieces. What's a tribute titlist? Is it based on the colored...

    Old tables from years past question

    Watching Minnesota Fats vs UJ Puckett play 7&9 ball on a Gandy which I imagine was a good table for its day. The pockets look buckets!! When did tight pockets become the norm in pool?

    playing "down" to your opponent

    I'm having an issue with this. I play league and when I'm practicing with my better team mates, I play a good game. When I start a match, if I win the break I can usually break and run or get real close. My issue is when I watch my opponent shoot, if they are skilled lower or have a rough few...

    tips on tip tools?

    Looking at the Joe Porper tipping tool. It actually looks like Pandora's box. I would like to do my own tips because I am going to be trying out different ones pretty often and don't want to pay the install price every time. If not this tip tool, what works good?

    WTB 4x8 or bigger for storage.

    Like the Poison 4x8's but anything that big or bigger will work. Looking to spend under $100 (new Poison is about $90 delivered). Just for storage so doesn't need to be perfect just nice and protective.

    thinking of converting a play cue...

    I have a Falcon BS7 with a 13mm shaft that's original to the cue. I want to put a white diamond tip on it and making it a dedicated break cue. Is there anything else to it? I've broke with it previously in a pinch and had no issues with the ferrule so would it be a bad idea to tip it and break...
