    Stats -- Chohan vs. Frost One-Pocket Race to 30, November 2020

    A small, but notable consideration: Players used to play if you make a ball on the break, you may continue shooting. The modern re-rack rule quit rewarding the breaker.

    Are table spots mandatory?

    Chris, You may want to double check your head/foot understanding. Players break from the head of the table, the balls are racked at the foot end.

    WTB/LTB - old micarta ferrules

    Looking for some period correct old school micarta ferrules. The old ones Schon and South West used to use. Yellowish orange in color. Not the new brown stuff. Looking for the real deal, two or three of them. Please PM me, don't over bump. No funny stuff - my money is right.

    Observation of Left handed Players - Mechanical Bridge

    I would argue that the greater percentage of left handed players use their right hand to cue when using the bridge/rest. And I would definitely argue that there are more left handed players who switch hands when using the bridge/rest than right handed players who switch hands. See below...

    Plug, Tap and Thread

    Greetings builders, I harvested a solid hitting shaft off a bar cue. Going to send it off to a cue maker to plug, tap and thread it for my 3/8x11 butt. Cue maker is also matching the ringwork. The shaft was mated to the house cue with a steel rod, so it is going to need to be bored out and...

    Estate Sale in Caledonia, MI - Early GC1 or GC2

    Estate Sale this weekend July 28th and 29th. Table appears to be fairly mint, judging by the condition of the ball tray/box. The mechanic who set it up was probably a hack, judging by the skirt alignment. Has an old set of centennials...

    Vinyl Wrap Alternative to Formica Replacement

    The formica on my GC-I has worn down, and I'm not in a position to have it replaced. The table is disassmbled, and being recovered. I am going to give this stuff a shot. Reviews online have been positive. I figure it can do no harm, as long as I carefully install it. It's a residential...
