    Seriously talented kid you’ve got there. My son is 6 and can’t make a solid hit on the CB! Keep us posted on his progress please.

    Eagle Eye Takes Aim at 14.1 High Runs

    I don’t think you’re factoring in that the rail doesn’t contact the mid-point of the ball, rather it touches a little above the mid point. As a result, part of the ball’s diameter fits UNDER the rail. So using a ball to measure pocket size can be deceptive.

    SVB to Kick Off High Run Attempts

    What separates a 300 ball runner from a 600 ball runner? I think at that level it’s much less about technical skill (Shane, Ruslan, all these guys have that in spades) and purely a feat of extreme stamina/focus. In one of Schmidt’s videos he talks about knowing when to treat some shots as easy...

    Pocket size?

    I see what you’re saying. I think what’s happening here is the rail height is a bit greater than the the radius of a ball, so when putting two balls side by side in the pocket together a small portion of their combined 4.5in width falls UNDER the rail, as seen below. Lining up the calipers as...

    Pocket size?

    4.5 in Diamond pro cut, which is the perfect size IMO:

    2021 AZ Billiards Straight Pool Challenge!

    New to this forum. Here's a 64 with no warm up. Booted an easy shot on 65 going for a maybe ill-advised breakout.
