    Pool stuff you bought🤮, tried or used, and said never again.🤮

    Elephant brand practice balls are made to hold chalk so you can see where you are hitting the ball. It won't hold any Taom Pyro chalk. It's just too clean. I must use other chalks when using those practice balls.

    Pocket size?

    The pockets on my Olhausen 8' are exactly as described in the video garczar posted. Yet i do have some rattle. I don't know if Olhausen has tried to remedy the problem but it is still there albeit less than their older tables. If the pockets are the same as the Diamond pockets in the video why...

    Pocket size?

    My Olhausen has 4.5" pockets and I wouldn't want them even a fraction tighter.

    TAOM V10

    I have to disagree with you concerning the cleanliness of Blue Diamond vs Taom chalks. The Blue Diamond leaves much more of itself on the table, balls and surrounding areas. Not even close.

    TAOM V10

    I don't think many believe a magical chalk will make their game better. Some of us however appreciate the cleanliness of certain chalks and spend some extra money for that reason. Nothing wrong with keeping our tables, carpets, balls and sticks clean.

    Defy shaft with Navigator Soft tip

    This seems to be the only CF shaft that recommends using a conditioner on the shaft. What is different about this CF shaft" From the McDermott website: "Defy carbon fiber shafts have a special finish that contains a slip agent. This helps keep the shaft slick and resists chalk, dirt, and hand...

    Best player ever for the cash?

    Always was curious about those $1,000 bills stories. I have read a good bit about him and consistent with stories about his life is that he was sometimes loaded and sometimes broke. Hard to be broke and not use those $1,000 bills you have squirreled away. And 40 years after they last printed...

    TAOM V10

    I'll try v10 too but until then I'm sticking with Taom Pyro. No mess and no miscues. Mess free on table, balls, hands and shafts. Some think it too expensive but it lasts a very long time. For a home table there is no cleaner chalk.
