Well, it's not exactly cheap old school stuff.....You can get a lot of Revos and Cuetecs for the price of a Southwest or whatever insanely costly collectors cue these guys are using, not to speak of...

Classic AZB thread, one of dozens of it's kind. You should listen to the nuthuggers: We don't deserve Mr. Seerings services/cues. In fact, I don't think anybody does, not even those who defend him....

I have a friend who plays a lot better when he plays fast. There is a simple reason. He is misalligned on his setup, then subconsciously corrects on his delivery. No amount of coaching has been able...

That bank is a hanger. Seriously, this is not a brag. ANYONE can make it.

Nope, its weapons grade baloney. Shaft will deflect with or without soft tips.

Probably good reasons to use a soft tip. I personally can't think of any, but maybe someone else can? You get more...

I kind of like the cream colour of old ball sets, but then again I do like old stuff more than most.

The playability of the new Aramith sets can't be beaten, IMO. I've tried the Cyclops and...

Lets face it, no run will ever be "good enough" for some people. There will always be something to nitpick. The rails are not bouncy enough, the cloth is not slow enough, the balls are not old and...

So far I haven't seen any.

Tried it myself, IDK, snooker is such a delicate game IMO it takes away too much feeling. The loop bridge is only used on a very select handful of shots, so that also...

So I can run balls in my garage and then show a video, and that too would be an exhibition? That begs the question of why "exhibition" is needed or useful as a category? Witness runs should be...

John Schmidts run is a great achievement. I'm in awe of his talent and shotmaking prowess. That being said, I no longer consider the run a record, other than highest videotaped run. And no, I'm not...

When I started playing, early 2000's, many of the older players still had 80's-90's Meuccis. They had the whippy shafts and some even sanded their new shafts down, so they'd be even more whippy. On...

The last paragraph is ridiculous. If you don't see what's wrong with it, I don't think I can reach you, anyway.

For 8 ball or 14.1 it's generally easier, in that you can plan your runs. 14.1 still needs spin on the opening break, the break shots etc. but you can usually get by with less than rotation games....
