Good morning Jayman, I found your explanation of the APA "Equalizer" system very informative. I am curios as to if you know the 9-ball skill level numbers. They must differ from 8-ball because they go up to 9 and down to 1. Also, when figuring a players skill level, if a 5's win % is 90 the score that goes in for 9 of the matches is 3.1(unless a match averages less). On the loss, if the player loses the match 2-0 in 5 racks and 20 innings(0 defences just for example). Is the "4" scored or is it the innings in the racks he won in the match?
I was reading a thread on here about Slade cues and it appears you know quite a bit about them. I acquired one at a local place (Oklahoma city) about 12-13 years ago, and was wondering what you could tell me, apart from the various threads on here, more about them like value, materials, etc.
thank you, Don
Hello Jayman, I'm a coming up collector myself I was curious if any of your cues could be parted with by any chance? My name is Justin and my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org if you could possibly e-mail I would greatly appreciate it.
Jayman, I hear that you are the guy to ask when it comes to old Viking Cues. I just picked up what appears to be an Early Viking Rosewood four point with veneers. It has the acrylic window on the butt sleeve and inside it says " Monkey Heise by Viking. I have pictures I could e-mail you if you like. thanks, Jim Antil
i heard you were the man when it comes to identifying adams cues. all i know about mine is that it is adams. no wrap, no points, nothing fancy- just a good straight shooting cue. any insight would be greatly appreciated.
Hey, my name is Ian. I was talking to chopdoc about a cue I had, and he said you might have some spare original bumpers for adams cues. I have an Adams JR-9 viscount. Please let me know if you have any extra bumpers. If you want, I'll trade you something for it too!
you have been referred to as the resident ADAMS expert. i have one that i can't find any info on. it is signed, dated, and numbered - helmstetter, Nov 22, 1989, 01/25. if you can send me your email i will try to send pics. it is similar to the 97-8 only has some sort of scrimshaw design in the butt windows. any info, price, value, history?
