Does anyone know what degree of speed change effect can be achieved when stretching/installing new 860HR? Damage risk? How much installation latitude actually exists? What is the normal...

Don’t laugh, but I think that might actually have been the local rule when I was a kid (fished a few balls out of spittoons growing up).

While my reading vision has noticeably deteriorated, surprisingly it has not affected my shotmaking ability once I can focus correctly on the CB. More worried about mental acuity. I continue to make...

One the one hand, having a ‘pool hustler’ father was an obvious ‘leg up’ to being a fierce competitor. But, it likely also had something to do with her ability to maintain ‘decorum’...

Many believe ‘jumping’ (or breaking) with any but your regular cue should be also. Pool is not ‘golf’. Maybe next we could mark & switch our own personal cueball whenever? Or maybe stick a flag in...

One of the reasons I favor ‘ball return’ tables. Balls seldom come back up once they actually go down.
The plastic pocket liners on GCs will spit balls directly back at you, and on GC drop tables...

BTW: I should probably add, for those interested, while the ‘fore & aft’ flex I mentioned is not that big a deal, it isn’t likely to improve with time/use. So, I would suggest to anyone who also...

Actually, it’s half ‘raised elbow’, and half ‘wrist flection’. I keep forgetting my iPad is also a video camera. I’ll have to check that out, and see exactly. Previous poster suggestion re: vision...

More or less, just change in elbow position in general. I had always thought the ‘pendulum’ stroke was what was most recommended by instructors as ideal.

Stroke geometry

Supposedly, the theory of a proper stroke purports (?) that the upper arm should stay parallel to the table surface while the forearm pivots. Geometrical plotting indicates (to me) that the cue butt...

Older players favor Centennials (and green cloth) for the traditional aspect, which is the only real justification for the higher cost. Many years of machine polishing had worn mine down by about 3...

I used to think a shorter bridge was better, since a longer one DOES magnify stroke error & cue deflection. But (and before LD cues became popular), the first time I saw Efren play, his extra-long...

Am I mistaken, or wasn’t that the cloth on the 9’ Diamonds used for the recent 14.1 tournament in Virginia Beach? (also Duramith balls). Several 150 & out runs on tight pockets. No 860 for me!

Just bought one on eBay. Slightly different casting face than the old ones & a bit pricey (>$25), but the wheels are easier to turn. Fit the cutout recess perfectly.
