    Eddie O building my custom cue from scratch!

    He makes cue building look easy. His talent as a beginner is amazing. His basics playing pool need a little fine tuning.

    Unknown cue from the North West (Tacoma)

    You are correct. Tom Hofstedt signed Huf to his cues and caricatues. He also played piano and sang. A very interesting man. Left us in 2018.

    Would you call a foul on yourself?

    I was playing a famous player in a tourney in Missoula. He cued up very close to the cue ball. He had told me years before he did it because his stroke was not perfect.On this day he was playing with an altered state of mind. Partying all not and not sleeping. I called foul twice as his tip...
