    APA still give jackets?

    Finally won my way back to Vegas for singles and I’m wondering if anyone that went last year knows if they still give jackets as part of the package? I’m really hoping they do as I love the jackets but I heard a nasty rumor they have started giving backpacks instead.

    Meucci Quantum Value

    Never seen one of these before and I am interested in value. I am also having a hard time finding any information online about this cue. Can anyone tell me if Palmer ever collaborated with Meucci?

Not many floating around right now from what I've been able to google and only 1 video review. Anyone that has had the cue for a while now I would love to hear your thoughts. Specifically...

    Worth on my Zinzola

    Ok let me start by saying I'd rather this not deteriorate into drama. That being said, Zinzola recently retired from making cues and apparently I got the last one he ever made. What does this do to the value if anything?

    McDermott Cue ID Plz

    Just bought these 2 cues off someone and I'm wondering the value. I looked through the McDermott website and could find some stuff close but not 100%. I'm wondering the value for them on the secondary market. The light brown one has a custom shaft made for it by an unknown (it actually has a...

    Worst rule I've ever heard of

    So I'm playing in this last pocket tournament and both my opponent and I are on the hill. I call a bank shot that is very hard and make it but before the 8ball goes in the pocket I called the cueball hits his last ball in the corner pocket. They tell me I lost the rack and match because my...

    Why is Ivory still considered an ok material in the pool world

    There is so much documentation about how bad the ivory trade is for elephants and yet we in the pool world still consider it a plus to have in a cue. The uncomfortable question for many people here is, 'why when there are so many other materials that simulate Ivory is there a demand for the...

    Cue weight change

    I recently got a high end cue and I love it but the weight distribution is very different from my old cue. The new cue has much more weight throughout the whole butt. My concern is that if I have the cue maker take out the weight bolt it will make the butt more front weighted. I will also be...
