If you're looking to buy new, I'd try to find a set of Cyclop balls if I were in your shoes, they give you the best bang for your buck.

I'm a 50+ runner on 7', 8', and 9', and in my experience 8' is easiest, then 7', then 9'. 10' is much tougher than the 3 smaller tables.

Honestly I don't think about anything. I did my thinking when I was standing. My routine is to build the program in my head before I address the shot. Once I'm down on the shot I just execute. If,...

I know this thread is a breeding ground for strife, but I did promise to post an update.

Honestly I think that the ball in hand anywhere rule would improve straight pool, it's my biggest gripe with the rules. The only reason I haven't switched on my own is that I want any runs I put up...

Got about 20 more hours of straight pool on the asparagus tip since my last post, and tonight I won an 8-ball tournament with it. So far I'm seeing no problems with it. No deforming, no mushrooming,...
