    Is Max Eberle as big as a goof as I now think?

    Have YOU ever spoken with Max about this? If you did, your question would be moot!

    Unknown Cue

    No. This guy used to work at a local pool room many years ago. Thought the cue looked good. On closed inspection, you can see the butt cap is separating from the cue. Not sure if he will be happy or sad when I tell him the input from my AZ friends.

    Unknown Cue

    Hi Folks, can any of me AZ friends identify the maker of this cue? A customer brings it into the pool room regularly. Says he purchased it roughly 20 years ago used. Asked if I could identify it for him and suggest a value. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    RIP Cyclop?????

    Our pool room purchased a set of ":Skittles" Cyclop balls. We have quite a few players going to both SBE and the Vegas BCAPL / USAPL events. Both use those ball sets. At least they did. Checked the SBE site. Only mentions Diamond and Simonis. Lyn

    TSA not allowing cues on planes?

    Yep, the TSA removed pool cues from the list. The flight attendants union protested and the ban was re-instated. See people on flights with Titanium tennis rackets. I've seen some high technology "canes" that might do far more damage than a wood cue. America is not a land where common sense...

    Personal Safety Thoughts When Returning To Pool Rooms

    Robin, During the BCAPL event this March, when I arrived the referees were wiping the tables down between matches with Clorox wipes. Asked one ref if they were going to wipe the balls down as well! You had to see the look on his face. Doing one without the other was a waste of money and...

    Fats, flip the plastic rack over and look at the construction. Designed in alignment. All the wooden Diamond racks we used to have were so worn out there were no identifying marks left! Lyn

    What triangle is the best rack for one pocket ,straight pool

    Matt, The Diamond wood racks have one failing. With enough racks, the interior sides of the rack start to wear a groove and will not longer allow the balls to be racked tightly. There is also a different problem that comes into play in a pool room. With constant use, the pool balls wear...

    What triangle is the best rack for one pocket ,straight pool

    Dean, I suggest the "new" Diamond plastic rack. Found it to rack consistently tight. If you have a line drawn on your cloth as a center line for the rack, flip the Diamond over and there is a plastic support in the rear which will aid in rack alignment. The rack also has doubled supports up...
