    Champ with 18oz, Chump with 20?

    If I go from 18ish oz to 19.5 or more my game falls apart. It made me curious about the effect weight has on stroke. Must be a timing thing but I don't understand it? Not all that important of a question, I know, just the curse of the curious.

    Cushion nose too high?

    I bought a 4 1/2 x 9 commercial Brunswick from a pool hall. I don't know the model but it was made in 1995. The table banks very short and I was told the nose of the cushion, where the ball hits, is too high. I measured it at slightly less than an 1/8" higher. A friend suggested the cushion...

    New OB came in the mail today

    This cue http://www.billiardwarehouse.com/cues/ob-1/OB-124.html came today. I'm a believer, this cue just made the game almost too easy. I'll get back as the "newness" wears off but I have to say I'm initially very impressed. :thumbup:
