    Sneaky Pete Cues ……

    I have a Carmeli fancy sneaky conversion that I have really enjoyed. All rings are below the pin so that you can go natural, kielwood or carbon fiber and they look good. It was originally a Dufferin and is 60".

    Best poolroom in Austin?

    Been here since 86. I hate what the city has become. Kind of like the homeless that moved here when the camping ban was lifted, the cost of housing here has also been destroyed by outsiders. I know several officers here that say that the homeless population almost tripled when the ban and...

    Lathe setup

    I bought this lathe about 6 months ago and have only used it a half a dozen times on my personal cues. I think part of that is because I'm not totally sure about the setup. I would love any input on to how or what I could do to make it more convenient and effective. Maybe reference certain cue...

    Prrof that the cost of a cue doesn't always matter

    I bought an old Thomas 1/1 case that happened to have and plain Jane Miz Collection wrapless. I know it probably isn't worth $25 bucks but I can't miss. Just beat the ghost 7-3 on my old Brunswick using it for breaking too. The shaft on it is not an LD and I am pretty sure the tip is a lepro...
