I think the idea of 10 foot tables will forever remain a novelty proposition, as Lou said. We need to play on equipment that is available to all, and standardize the game. The top pros have plenty...

Brunswick always had, until at least 1960, a staff position called "The Brunswick Cuemaster." So don't assume that all cues made with TITLEIST butts were made by Rambow. I don't know the identity of...
