Years ago I ordered an OB1 30" shaft and never looked back. Love it. Obviously, when I switched to an OB2 I went with the 30" version too. The cue (OB121) just feels better balanced with the 30"...

The table at our community center suffers the same woes; in this case it's only if the ball is within 2" of the short rails. I had Schelmke make me a 54" cue and works like a charm. I think I paid...

Use a house cue to break (unless you like...

While I appreciate the effort to make pool more public-friendly, I fear your idea just introduces more "rules" but doesn't change the fact that pool is not a spectator sport. If the public doesn't...
