Youíre spot on about a proís consistency. I heard this years ago - an amateur practices till they finally get it right; a pro practices till they never get it wrong. Great post!

Cuetec CF shafts

A question for those who own a Cuetec CF shaft. How would you describe the sound made when the cue contacts the cue ball? With a soft or super soft tip, would the sound be a muted, dull thud? Do...
