    How do you carry a Magic Rack in your cue case?

    I just got one, but I'm wondering what's the best way to carry it in my case. Do you roll it up and put it in something, or just fold it?

    Dirty Pool

    Some of the things I've seen (and done) have me wondering: What constitutes 'dirty pool'? Recently, I shot in a tournament and saw things I had never seen done before. The thought in my head was, "Gee, that's not sportsmanlike." But I was told by a lot of others that doing these things is...

    Unreal straight pool shot

    We were playing straight pool today and this shot just amazed me. Kicking at the 5 ball, new rack. The cue ball goes into the rack PERFECTLY and the 14 ball goes out.........5 ball misses everything and goes down table.:grin:

    Looking for information on this cue

    I'm curious after having several people look at my cue and tell me its worth....from $200-$300. Are they yanking my chain? I tried to find anything on Dufferin but all I found was a bunch of cheap cues and no information on this one in particular. It has 711 on the butt, with a...

    Flying with a pool case

    How do you fly with a pool cue/case? My husband is flying with a laptop and carry on bag only. Is it treated like a carry on bag? Do you pay extra? This has never come up before and the rules are all different now.

    Shy but wants to play

    Hi, my name is Bonni and I'm an addict.:cool: I've been playing since November and I've got a problem. Aside from the fact that I don't get enough practice, I've moved to a new town and I don't feel comfortable walking into a bar alone and challenging a table yet. I'm just not a seasoned...
