    Pressing cue tips

    lol... humorous thread. I can appreciate pressing a layered tip. A ton of people i know, don't press... but they do cut half of the tip away to make it shoot the way they want. so shouldn't they get 1/2 their money back LOL... If you want to try it, try it... it is your money to spend. I...

    Who makes the best wooden shafts?

    There are many who use quality wood, turn it gradually and produce a good shaft. At the end of the day, it’s about identifying a taper you like that works for you without thinking… Let’s not forget ferrule and tip combination. For me, durbin, bob Danielson, some older tigers, dpk, jacoby...

    Tigers Cf shaft. Anyone used it

    So I have a Fortis pro (as does a friend of mine)... when I first got it, wasn't so sure I'd like it. I had shot with my friend's (which I liked) and it shot rather differently. I took some time and 'beat' the tip in... breaking, playing harder than I normally do to get the tip to settle...

    OB cues shut down?

    not beating up OB, never personally bought one of their products, but have shot with a few and thought they were decent. However, to be honest... I've known of quite a few custom makers who when you order a shaft... your request for a particular shaft diameter they must consider it a...

    No jump cue allowed

    Always been fond of the rule where your opponent snookers you, jump cue allowed... you snooker yourself, keep using that full length cue :) my rationale, the opponent safes you... you have every opportunity (and legal equipment) to get out of it... you do it to yourself, suck it up !! -Joe

    2020 Champion of Champions question

    That’s insane... she reset the clock. Talk about getting jobbed. I wondered if he even asked to have the ball cleaned, he seemed surprised when the reg came to the table (to me). I thought the momentum shifted a bit after it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Super Billiards Expo 2019, nearly all amateur events sold out?

    I’d guess the scheduling issues with the 1p and length of the matches were more the issue. It was a limited field to begin with and always had problems if they players were in the open /pro event. The 3cushion was not run by allen. It was there last year, but not on the website. Haven’t heard...

    Shooting Hard vs Shooting Soft

    how you learned Interesting thread... i agree with a whole bunch of what has been said. For me personally, one of the drills i did continuously when i was first learning was pocket speed... now i took that to mean just dropping the ball into the pocket. Oh, how i wish i had taken that to mean...
