Randy - I noticed that you were friends with Richard Rhorer. I knew him back in the late 90's in Houston. He had a fantastic set up in his home. Is he still around?

This is an excellent post. I think it is fair to say that there is a definable goal when executing a pool shot. You need to be able to deliver the cue tip to the intended spot on the cb with a cue...

Hi Bob. I didn't follow all the links so maybe I missed it. I'll look more thoroughly tomorrow. I just don't recall that "grip firmness" was a measured variable and if it wasn't then I'm not...

Some are saying definitively that grip tightness cannot have an impact on momentum imparted to the cue ball during contact because of the short contact time and the fleshy skin. It makes sense, but...

I had monkeys in pool rooms replacing the tips on my Balabushka until I got smart and asked a cue maker to do it instead. He leaves a tiny layer of the old tip on so there no damage or sanding of...

I think most people agree with you that you shouldn't have to think about aiming when pocketing balls. You just see it after awhile.

I think you would probably like BC21's Poolology. It speeds the learning curve because it is the only system that tells you the exact fraction needed to pocket the ball. It is pretty ingenious and...

Mosconi would be proud! Of course his cue ball would be in the center of the rack area, but there was only one Mosconi. I call this a minefield. Can be tricky so is a good idea to practice this...
