    Dime Radius or Nickel Radius?

    I have an inkling that the smaller the radius, the more throw might be the result. In Snooker, the radius is actually larger on the tip & the ball is smaller, so that difference doesn't give off more throw... or Squirt. Just a thought... think of it in these terms, the cue ball with it's 1.125...

    The facings are ROUNDER, the whole idea is to make the game hard to score or run out. We do have fun, but tempers will flare from time to time & everyone is your competitor & judge.... , i.e., what did you do that for, why did you leave the cue ball there, I'm tired of you hooking me.... Note...

    Premium Chalks – Are They Worth It?

    Thanks for the report. I tried the K brand a few years back, didn't care for it. I've used Masters Chalk, for over 50 years, that does it for me. I use to be a fan of the Green Chalk, but since since blue cloth is on everything, I use the Blue Chalk.

    Getting Shape when Object Ball is in Jaws of Pocket

    Ol Bert has helped many a Player learn some valuable info. Getting position, after making a Gimme, isn't always that easy, because sometimes the Cue Ball still has some energy or spin, that causes it to do funny things. Take a look at his suggestions & practice them until the new info is Second...

    Are rail sights in the correct place? Should the gutter line be 2:1 rather than the cushion nose?

    I have drawn several Pool Tables on AutoCAD & Sketchup, I always use the gutter line as 1.125, half the diameter of the object ball, where it meets up with the cushion nose. You might want to add a skosch to that, because the ball does penetrate the Cushion Nose line... on harder shots.

    Open- or closed-bridge hand and gloves?

    Niels is tall & Pool Tables are made for short people too, hence the spread of his legs. I always keep a finger over my bridge rail, to control the movement of the Cue.

    My pool game is really suffering

    Well, if you've played long enough & had some success, you'll be sorry if you sell your Cues, for cheap. I quit for 20 years, because I went away to work 60 hours a week & be a Daddy & a Husband. I came back in 2001, after retiring from BOEING in '98... won a few tournaments & was right back in...

    Practice practice practice

    Cole Dickson is correct about the power in a Break Shot, but there are still many players trying to hit it 50 MPH, no matter what you tell 'em... Corey Duel is the Master of Easy Break Shots, so they outlawed him & his easy Break Shots... Accuracy is omnipotent in the Break Shot

    Funny Ha-Ha... Actually I put a wide (1/4") Marks-A-Lot Stripe, in the middle of the spine, going the short way or across the spine. It's a great target & does provide useful feedback. I lay the Phone Book in the spot are a & point the spine perpendicular, toward the direction of the CB, headed...

    Three Ball is OK, I have used a big Phone Book. But, repetition is compromised or taxed with anything, but a BreakRAK. Knowledge, with Repetition is the key to learning physical motion...period.
