I know there is a place that I can get a replacement, I spoke to them a few years ago. I can't find their number now. There used to be a...

    I wonder if they play pool in Cuba?

    Now that relations with Cuba are going to be somewhat normal, I wonder if they play pool there. I plan on making a trip there if I can. I was there when I was a kid with my father but don't really remember much about it. We all remember this guy

    Slippery wrap question.

    I have a few holsters from these people. They are made from some kind of material that is kind of sticky against your skin. I actually like the ones they make with a clip as added security but for the most part they do what they are designed to do.

    What pocket provides the best percentages for a right handed player? I am right handed and have always broke from the right. Is there even any advantage which pocket you pick.

    Must see one pocket game

    This is a hill hill game. It lasts and hour and five minutes but is worth watching. If you like one pocket you will see numerous moves and kicks, not to mention the value of taking a scratch.

    What cue weight do you play with?

    I am curious how many have experimented with cue weights. Do you now play with a heavier or lighter cue then you once did? Did it make any noticeable difference in your game one way or the other.

    Arnot cues??

    Have not heard about them for a long time. Is he still around? I know he was maybe the first cuemaker to find a market on the internet, he sold a lot of cues at one time. Just curious.
