    I'm the same watching this, it looks as if guys are playing even more tighter (robotic) than last years event. Which was the last time I watched as much pool as this. Its like thay say, it's all about how good your cue action is, under pressure, when it matters.

    The middles, look real tight too. Just watched the lisowski match. Not the best advertisement for pool I've ever seen. How serious he is. We will see in the next match,when he plays Mieszko Fortunski aka the butcher. His second match on the outside tables, I just watched day one, Fortunski wins 9-2.

    BK Rush break cue - with OR w/o the sport grip?

    Why the need to get another break cue if your Gilbert does the job? Especially if it's non wrap, I doudt, it's going to be that much better.

    How to Improve 9 Ball Pro Match Play !!!

    I just remember someone saying 4 nines I saw the highlights. I don't like that way, you don't have much control over the cue ball. I can't remember what worlds it was. Thay stopped the match, Halfway through. Because the 9 kept going down. On one of the outside tables. I think that it was, last...

    How to Improve 9 Ball Pro Match Play !!!

    That match where max lechner, had 4 nines in his first round. At the masters. It takes all the fun out the game. On the flip side through, a lot of scratches seem to be happening too.

    This is what I did too.when I was younger, customs was a real big deal. It doesn't matter so much now. You only need, one really nice cue. I got one other cue that has sentimental value, the only one I haven't sold.

    Soaking Leather Tips

    I did the same, soaked in milk then, left for 2 weeks in the fridge. Dried them for another week. Then I pressed them in a vice, with a bent coin, to get the dome shape. And left it in there for a couple days. It's nice way, to use up really soft elkmasters.thay worked best on snooker cues.

    Best tip for diamond bar boxes

    Mike summed it up best here, This is exactly, the only way you will be able to master this. It don't matter what tip you got on, it's more likely your hitting the balls too hard. The only way to adjust, is too learn to accelerate, slower through the cue ball. In other words, develop a slightly...
