    DIY Tip Replacement - Ferrule Question

    I am replacing the tip on a cue I bought and have a quick question. It had a leather tip and I cut that off. But there was a thin reddish Brown layer on top of the white of the ferrule. Wondering if that is part of the ferrule itself or if that is part of tip? It feels extremely hard...

    Meucci Cue Identification

    Hey guys. I have a chance to buy a Meucci at a good price… but it’s a long drive from me… anyways, the owner doesn’t know anything about it, but I was hoping you gurus could share a little light on the era and model of this cue. Thanks!

    Help identifying an old vintage CUE

    Hi everyone. I don’t know if this is the correct place to post this, but I’m trying to help a friend get some more information on a Cue he has. He doesn’t know anything about it and he says there are no markings on the shaft at all. Thanks for anyone who can provide a little elucidation.

    CTE - SP's (sight points?) / SL's (sight lines?)

    So I went back through the New Truth Series videos, specifically the shot videos. Does this look correct? Anyone have anything to add? Can someone clarify where to SP30 aim point actually is? Is it just center to edge? 15 degree AL CB-Edge to A/C PX Inside CB-1/4 to OB-Center SL CB-Center to...

    CTE - SP's (sight points?) / SL's (sight lines?)

    I've been using basic CTE for awhile, but using older information. Watching the new "Truth Series" videos from Stan I get what is going on with the different lines. But does anyone have a diagram or can at least explain simply what the different SP/SL alignments are on CB/OB for the...

    I would like to step aside.

    Stan, thanks so much for your work. I for one really appreciate it and wait with bated breath for the book release. I would encourage you to release an Ebook version as well. I think it would sell well, and I would love to have the information on my phone for reference when I am shooting, or...

    Minnesota Fats - Pivoting?

    Just wondering if anyone has noticed this, or perhaps my eyes deceive me. https://youtu.be/78pYhTK5hFc?t=288 @ 4:48 seconds, is Fats lining up with a half tip outside and pivoting in on the last stroke? It's quite obvious when you slow the speed to .5. Let me know your thoughts...

    Great Progress of interest to CTE Aiming Enthusiasts

    Doesn't anyone know if Stan will be releasing an Ebook version? It would be tragic if he didn't.

    CTE Question

    Didn't I read somewhere, that there is no B reference after 4 diamonds? Or am I imagining things....?

    CTE - A - Outside Pivot - Only for straight shots?

    Sure, I can imagine where the ball will go if I do a straight hit based on the reference points, relatively speaking. But aren't we getting into ghost ball/contact point territory then? This seems to be a weakness that there isn't a visual "clue" that allows you to see whether or not the pivot...

    CTE - A - Outside Pivot - Only for straight shots?

    Ok some more CTE table time. I watched Stan's video on the subject: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdTBDO_6au4https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdTBDO_6au4 The shots he set up, or at least approx, I can use the visuals and hit it. When I setting up the spot shot, with the CB on the...

    CTE - A - Outside Pivot - Only for straight shots?

    Hey thanks for the response. I don't find CTE to be particularly foreign actually. I am new to pool, and have no qualms trying anything that pockets balls. I had been using shishkebob for my main aiming method for the last 6th months with good, if not inconsistent success. Before that I...

    CTE - A - Outside Pivot - Only for straight shots?

    Well, I do not know all of the claims of CTE, and I do not really care. As long as the balls go in the hole. I had a fair bit of success using shishkebob for aiming, which was my default shooting technique. So I thought I would try CTE. It seems to me, that the reason an A-outside pockets both...
