    Mark Griffin -- Not Long to Live

    I am doing well. I hope you are too. We had some good times with Mark. I remember playing snooker with him at your house. We both enjoyed that.

    Mark Griffin -- Not Long to Live

    Its hard to calculate just how much Mark did for American pool over the last quarter century. I know he changed my life in that time. I also know he did the same for many others to one degree or another. His legacy will be the friends he made, people he helped and things he created. I think...

    Sherm Adamson, Master Cuesmith and Beloved Friend has passed away

    Damn. I knew Sherm when I lived in Cincinnati in the 90's. Bought a cue from him and visited his shop once. Always a very nice guy and absolutely loved the game.

    Open Offer to Danny Harriman and John Schmidt from TAR

    I am doing well. Thanks for the kind words. I did get to do a lot of cool stuff and meet a lot of interesting people. Most of it because of this forum one way or another. Someone told me on Facebook that this thread popped back up. Wild to go back and read some of the old stuff. Flying chalk...

    DCC BETTER THEN OR NOW?

    IMO the Executive West years are exactly what Johnston City was. That was Greg's vision for it and he made it happen. I feel lucky to have seen something that will never happen again. The world is different now. Those early years were one of those perfect intersections of time, place and...

    Should there be full disclosure in PPV matches?

    I didnt watch the Ko/Dennis match but I paid attention to social media and the forums and I saw something that made me just shake my head. John French is backing Dennis and right after the match is over announces he will be staking the Ko brothers. I have read that he talked about it during the...

    Franklin Era SouthWest Shaft with NOS Micarta

    I have had this for about seven years. I owned the cue it was made for less than that. Its a long story how I ended up with one SW shaft but I did. About six years ago I took it to the SouthWest shop and was able to get the ferrule replaced with some of the very little micarta they had left...

    Why don't cuemakers do this? More to the point why don't we let them?

    Its going to take me a minute to get to the point but stick with me here.... Over the past few years I have gotten into custom knives. The parallels between the custom knife market and the custom cue market are many: -They both are made up of mostly one man shops and a few larger ones...

    TAR is not dead.

    There seems to be some confusion or miscommunication or just normal internet noise about the status of The Action Report. Some of that is probably my fault so I want to clear things up. This gonna be long so for the TL;DR crowd: TAR is still around just doing things differently. For the readers...
