    I got my copy of the TAR Reyes v SVB Derby City DVD in the mail on Monday and I was finally able to watch it last night... I truly believe that action matches are the future of pool as concerns media presentation... There is just something different about watching 2 top players playing for...

Not so much the Reyes-Sigel, Jones-Sigel ones, but rather the ones with the Hall of Famers and more...

    WTB McDermott ED Series Cue

    These are cues from the mid-90's that kind of look like fancy sneaky petes with black phenolic joints.
