    Hosted my first 8 ball tournament in the man cave

    Had a blast. Eighteen players, $5 entry. 1st, 2nd, 3rd place pay out. I took 2nd. Very stressful having twenty five people in my space all at the same time. But it was fun and we plan to do it again. Youngest player was ten years old and the oldest was eighty! Here's a short video clip...

    Opinion please

    If you were looking to buy a third table and wanted a very specific period looking table and it would play well? Which one of two table choices would you opt for? A Peter Vitale Lord Nelson 8' table or a Brunswick Montebello 8' table?

    Duprytren's Contracture?

    Any other players here have a severe case of Dupuytren's contracture, or also know as Vikings disease? I have it in my left bridge hand and it prevents me from flattening out my left hand. I manage to make do with my two left most fingers folded under my hand. Just curious if anyone else is...

    Brunswick edge trim moulding?

    Not sure when, who, or how it happened, but I discovered a cracked section on my Brunswick Viscount trim piece. Anybody know if it can still be bought, if so where? And if I can't find an exact match, is there another version, color, type of material that can replace what I have now? Thanks

    My one of a kind Brunswick Logo man cave piece

    Decided to make me a Brunswick logo for my man cave project to compliment my pool table. So I figured I'd make a nice dimensional one. I carved it on my CNC, then painted it matte black. Did the Brunswick name in 23k gold leaf. I hand painted the rest of the lettering and border to finish it...

    Mechanic recommendation in the Tampa Area

    Looking for a referral near the Tampa FL area. Would rather use someone with good credentials. What good is a great table if it's set up sloppy??

    Pocket opening size?

    I have a Gandy big G, and the the pocket size is generous. I picked up an older Brunswick and the pockets are a little smaller. Is there a regulation pocket size and what is the size on tournament quality tables? I measured mine and the front of the opening is around 5" tapers to 4" at the...

    Team logo cue balls question

    I bought a used table and it came with a set of Florida Gator logo cue balls. The numbers have a black ring around them like the Brunswick Centennial balls do. I'm trying to find out who manufactures these balls and if they are any good to shoot with? The logo means nothing to me since I don't...

    Limited edition cue value yes or no?

    Any thoughts on limited edition collector cues? Does a numbered cue of a limited run really add any value to say a Meucci or other well known name brand? Just curious...

    My Gandy restoration

    I couldn't find a forum about specific tables so if this needs to be moved somewhere else, go for it. I bought a Gandy table about twelve years ago with the intent of refinishing it one day. Well that day came about two years ago. I printed a black carbon fiber using automotive wrap film with a...
