    Predator Z2 shaft for Longoni cue

    Since I never use this shaft, I might as well sell it: 1 Predator Z2 shaft for Longoni cue (XP joint), with a Kamui tip -- $190 (plus actual shipping). The shaft has less than 10 hours of play and is in perfect condition. Those shafts sell for $290 at Longoni USA...

    Me -- the ultimate moneyball bozo

    I don't know what's wrong with me, but the closer I get to the moneyball the worse I play. Yesterday, new year's eve, I entered an eight-ball tourney, played my normal crappy game but managed to get to the semifinals where I was ahead two games, got on the hill, broke and ran all the way to the...

    The ethical thread (without racist jabber)

    Yes, it's in our heads, and since I often end up playing the devil's advocate (some of you might even think I aspire to become the devil himself) I must say that I like Patrick Johnson's scenario, especially since the initial post (above) didn't describe this woman much more than being...

    No Mosconi Cup pay-per-view...?!

    Last year I watched ever single rack of the Mosconi Cup thanks to Matchroom's pay-per-view... and the subscription only cost $10. Though, this year Matchroom doesn't list any ppv on their site (as far as I can see). Don't tell me there won't be any podcast from this year's Mosconi -- how...

    What kind of joint is this...?

    I wonder if this is a standard joint:

    Squirt-test machine available..?

    I wonder if someone has a squirt/deflection machine that I could use to test my cues & shafts with? I'm eager to find a more factual/scientific way to this matter rather than rely on Bobby Jewett's skewed perception (no offense). I'm willing to send or even travel with my cues to have this...

    Missing cue at the World Snooker Championships...

    This missing (stolen?) cue happen to be my cue that I lent Ajeya. Below is a picture of it -- it's a John Parris 3/4 (butt/shaft) 22" ebony & olive wood butt and a 57" ash shaft euro-tapered to a 10mm tip, with a super short ferrule (about two millimeters). It weighs 18.8 oz and has a...

    Mike Massey video...

    This is yet another silly video that I shot with my dinky camera: Mike Massey running racks on us at Shoreline Billiards last Tuesday. Mike being cool & friendly as always: (remember to click on the "watch in high quality" button) -- peer

    How to treat a cork wrap...?

    I have an old Brunswick cue with a cork wrap (see below). Although the cork is quite well preserved for being a 110+ year old cue, it's very fragile -- just a poke with my nail will take a piece out of it. It's also very dry, too dry for my taste. So I wonder how to treat it -- to make it...

    Looking for a cue-case that holds 5 butts...

    I'm looking for a cue case (soft or hard) that holds 5 butts and at least 7 shafts. Any pointers appreciated. -- peer

    Size of 314's hole...?

    Anyone knows the diameter of the hollow hole of the original Predator 314..? I'm also curious how far it goes down into the shaft. -- peer

    Shut up or put up -- 90 degree "impossible" cut-shot

    I never thought a true 90-degree cut-shot was possible, but when I finally managed to persuade my nemesis/hero Bob Jewett to try this -- whatever I thought was impossible he somehow managed to pull off in front of my dinky camera... and it didn't take him long either. And to make it even more...

    Rule question -- freakiest scenario

    As I was playing 9-ball with my buddy James the other night, he left a hanging five-ball. Since I'm very bad at shooting balls that sit in the jaws of the pockets, I took ample time to figure out what would be the appropriate speed & english to get the cue-ball up table for position on the...
