    The ULTIMATE F#¢* You?

    At last he didn't disappear with ALL of the calcutta money like I saw once, that guy could shoot straight for sure though

    The ULTIMATE F#¢* You?

    A few times in league play I've had a 8 ball straight down the long rail. Hit it with medium speed, it's obviously going in, so I turn around and say "good game" and shake my opponents hand about the same time the ball falls. Walk back to the table and one my teammates says "Damn bubba, that...

    Remind me again why?

    Until Vegas will set odds (how did that work out last time!) or you can bet on tournaments on DraftKings, pool is destined to take a backseat to bowling, dart and cornhole Self supporting, with money only coming from entry fees and internal trade sponsors will only get us so far

    Which players have you tried to "emulate"?

    When in a rut I tend to go side-armed like Keith! aka Keither with the Either aka Earthquake! I should probably just stay with it instead of messing with fundamentals all the time, actually feels more natural.

    Players that DON'T like a slick shaft

    I used to practice/play leagues etc regularly with a very strong player(725ish Fargo). If he was having a tip put on or cue work done, he was adamant that the shaft not be cleaned. He would rarely wipe it down, might hit it with a slicker occasionally, but wanted all of the "oils" to stay on it...

    Gambler forearm wood?

    Just picked this one up, full shaft and arrow straight I’ve had a few of these over the years, but none with a forearm this light in color Would it’s be rosewood or just a light specimen of ebony? Also, what era would you say this one is? I bought one brand new in 89, the features on this one...

    McDaniels proprietary pin

    Do any cuemakers here know what the specs are on the pin Bill used on his J&J cues? I have a Mac Attack, and would like a second shaft made. Don't want to send the cue off to someone and take a chance something happening. His shafts were supposed to be interchangeable, so making one to known...

    McDaniels shaft, proprietary pin

    Looking for a McDaniels shaft, prefer 13mm +/- Need the later style with the modified 5/16x14, a regular shaft won't fit these butts, but the proprietary shaft will fit on a standard butt I think these were made for a specific dealer Have a nice pre cat 314 to trade of anyone is interested, or...
