    please stop saying she'll "beat" cancer, or that this is a fight she will/can win. cancer sucks,, no matter how strong you are. plenty of strong people have been diagnosed with cancer and died. in short, in the community of cancer survivors, very few like the idea of espousing support around...

    When did getting low on the cue happen?

    I always appreciate your insights. given the recent surge of interest in long cues, with permanent mid extensions and (also permanent) rear extensions, would you mind doing a segment at some point about the pros/cons?

    Hard Times Bellflower..??

    without trying to make this yet another covid thread, the medical experts have been on the money about the increases in the number of cases, and given that there's still a large portion of our population that choose to remain both defiant and willfully ignorant, it's only going to get worse from...

    Hard Times Bellflower..??

    The rumor down the grapevine is that Eddie had sold it, but after the second wave of lockdowns the deal with the new owner fell through and the landlord pushed for a total closure so they could gut the lot. Maybe someone can confirm or correct.

    Do you think 9-ball would be better or worse if a mandatory push out after the break became a standard rule?

    Any SoCal players here know which pool rooms closed down from the pandemic?

    there was a post here recently that Stix in Rancho Cucamonga closed (permanently). HT was said to have closed for good, then was sold and is now... in covid-limbo? dunno

    I think this goes back to that infinitely regressive argument of, does tighter pockets make better players? Would Mosconi be Mosconi if tighter pockets were the standard back then? All of these pros cue straight. And of the misses that I saw, it wasn't because the pocket was tighter, they missed...

    Worst and best cue you have ever used

    Play with a fifteen dollar cue, leave with a million dollar headache.

    Debatable. What you're describing may well have been attributable more to pressure itself more than the conditions of the table, though I'm sure both factored in to some extent. Every one of those players have routinely played and practiced on tight equipment before.

    Shaft weight matter? My jacoby black arrived.

    I think you may be overly sensitive to what may ultimately be of little to no consequence. Do the differences really make a difference for ya? What is the difference between 12.3mm to 12.65-7 to you? How is that going to affect your game play? IMO, focus on whether or not you feel you can be...

    Thanks! I'll check the thread for updates. I personally like playing with a harder tip, so I'm curious to hear how the Black plays with a tip on the firmer side.
