    Age vs Experience

    Ok, I accept that. What are the "too many" to which you are referring? I get hand/eye. Beyond that, I'm at a loss. Mental should favor experience.

    Age vs Experience

    So, you're saying that it comes down to shot making and CB control, which is all predicated on hand/eye coordination. Furthermore, I think you're implying, or maybe I'm inferring, that the required experience doesn't require decades and thus is not that complicated for a true student of the...

    Age vs Experience

    As I'm watching a 2022 match between Filler and Immonen, with Filler leading by a decent margin late, I started contemplating the age vs experience factor. With athleticism favoring youth and experience favoring age, I still wonder why youth seems to dominate the leader board. Is it as simple as...

    Danny DilLiberto

    I've been watching some Derby City matches on Billiard Channel lately and he's a commentator on many of them. Also, I think I see you in the front row on many of them. Am I right?

    Gold Crown Adventure

    I just saw this and did not know fig 8 nut plate indicated an earlier version of the table. Can you give me that time frame and what they changed to afterwards? I gave up trying to figure out my table year awhile ago, but if it's possible I'd like to hone in a little better. Because the feet...

    How to fix pool

    Really? Because I was the one doing the stereotyping to which I responded? I always marvel at the hypocrisy of the ISTS when they are called out for their ISMS.

    How to fix pool

    I'm not sure the analogy is accurate, much as I wish it were. Despite its less-than-savory reputation in some circles, it's historically been considered a gentleman's sport (not sure it's a sport, but that's another discussion). In fact, in college I used to go to a hall named Gentleman Jim's in...

    Boy would I love a polisher like yours. Alas, no economies of scale in any of it. A labor of love for sure. Awesome work Scott!

    Can I see your pool table lights?

    You see my light in my avatar pic. I think it was made for pairing with a Centennial or Anniversary, but looks great over my GC1.

    What is a good way for a low-level player to handle unwanted advice?

    Some of the most brilliant inventions were a result of an accidental or unexpected outcome. One never knows where a golden nugget is going to come from. So diverting from my snarky answer above for a moment, evaluate and either ask for more... or deftly move on (lots of ideas on how above).

    You should focus on fundamentals and stay away from side spin........oh, wait....sorry... :)

    Will 4 inches pockets be the future of US pool, bar box and big table?

    IMHO, making pool more interesting to the masses and accommodating the wishes of the hardcore AZB players are mutually exclusive. Precision cuts with deftly applied english are beautiful to watch for the AZB crowd, but to the casually interested viewer, somewhat sterile and clinical. What shot...

    Poolplayers and their pets(hopefully a feel good thread)

    The black and white one will often lay down around the pool table when I'm shooting...thinks she needs to be part of the action.
