I agree for a league payout where you can say "Show up and get some money" this is a good idea, especially with that many players and league dues going in. SBE has a pretty deep payout also, I think...

40% has to be an outlier idea, everyone I have talked to about this feels 25% is just about right, unless it's a fun little thing more than an actual tournament. Top 3 is pretty much a cutthroat...

I think it's foam, like used in gyms, yoga, orgy rooms.

Going to get some for where my table is in, currently on concrete that dings the heck out of balls if they are dropped.

The padding is soft in those cases and is full length, even if it's tight it won't scratch the cue.

I play in some similar tournaments, open, no handicap and shorter races like 3 or 2. Same ones Mr Webb was talking about.

If I will play in more of them depends on how the payouts go, many only...

This falls under the "spend 10 minutes learning something then 10 years learning how to do it under various conditions". The part that makes pool such a challenging game to play at a decent level.

The tip from their break cue is a bit loud, but easy to swap for a hard leather tip. I own one and stock it was not my favorite. I had a cue maker turn down the shaft a bit and it's much nicer for...

If the dents were not there when you first bought it, they don't show up on it's own.

You don't sand ANY shaft, or use abrasives on them.

Should not really need to clean it much as long as your...
