I haven't paid attention to balance point for quite a while, but I think 19 inches from the butt used to be sort of standard for 57" cues. It seems to me that the balance point should actually be...

Calling Shorty Johnson a world champion at 3-C would have to be based on an extremely restricted field. Here is the scoresheet from his match with Ceulemans in the 1978 World Championship. This was,...

I think it was the late 90s but I could be confused. I read something about it recently. I believe he averaged over 1.0 in it.

The Jacksonville Experiment video did show the grip hand at impact for some shots. Quite remarkable were the ripples in the skin of the hand, IIRC. The video was distributed starting in 1999 or so...

And it's not just a theoretical estimate. It was measured as part of the Jacksonville Experiment in 1998. It turns out that the stick does almost instantly go down to 50% of its initial speed and...

If a ball is rolling slowly enough, any minor defect, including where someone has shot a power shot (white spot on the cloth) will have an effect on the roll of the ball. I think tapping has much...

It helps if the player knows what's actually possible. I've seen lots of impossible shots attempted, usually in what they are trying to do with the cue ball. Like shots Efren couldn't make.

Without doing a study, I'd say that fewer than 1 in 10 shots requires something other than the top three bridges: hand on the table, bridging on the rail, using the mechanical bridge. Do you think it...

The amount of spin you get on the cue ball is determined by how far off center you hit and the speed of the stick at the time of impact. Or at least that's what I believe. Do you believe something...

As for fixing the spot crater, Mr. Stone, my boss at the rec center, would use lint and Elmer's glue to fill the hole and then put a new sticker on. Maybe the table mechanics have a better way.
