I have both also. The Diamond wood triangle only racks tight in one of the two directional choices (even with new balls), and still needs tape on the inside of the front point to get the head ball...

Are you right, or left handed? Do you think it matters which side pocket is used?

Risk of ‘inside’ english

Something I had never before considered (go figure). I HAD learned over the years to apply more outside to compensate for throw as the balls became dirtier, but had not though about how much more...

One thing I discovered re: the switch to decreased pocket size, is while slow shots into the corners may still drop, you soon give up on attempting those steeper angled shots toward the sides that...

As a sidenote:
For many years, I needed to frequently run my Centenials though the polishing machine every couple days if playing frequently. Aside from the chalk marks (Tweeten/Master), you could...

The side-of-the-rack breakshot into the corner pocket usually gives the best ball spread, but while a more acute angle (with follow/inside english) leaves the best resulting CB position, it also...

P.S. ROTATION: Just out of curiosity, I wonder what percentage of today’s players (when asked) could instantly tell you what the total of the #s on all of the 15 pool balls add up to?
