    Schmelke fails to live up to the hype

    I didn’t have the positive experience with Schmelke that everyone else has reported. They did not stand behind their product, and dealing with them turned out to be a big waste of time and money. I ordered a cue from them for $230. I asked for 1/2" ferrule and 12.6mm diameter shaft, among other...

    What is this game called?

    I saw some guys playing this game on a pool table, but it was obviously meant to be played without pockets. The players were using the cue ball, three ball, eleven ball, and one ball.

    Mark Griffin / Cyclop - great customer service!

    Some jerk stole our Cyclop 8-ball, and I was worried we were going to have a very hard time finding a single replacement ball. I sent a message to Mark Griffin, and he sent us one for free. He's a stand-up guy, and Cylcop has earned my continued support!!! Thanks again, Mark!

    Leather for burnishing shaft

    I'd like to buy a nice, soft piece of undyed leather that is ideal for burnishing shafts. Specifically what type of leather should I be looking for? Can anyone recommend a good source for a very small quantity? I bought a leather burnisher from one of the big online billiards stores, but I'd...
