    Developing Expertise In Pool

    Thx for the response. I am interested to try this. I will have to take a look at the videos and see what questions arise as I try it

    Developing Expertise In Pool

    So essentially you establish your lower half to cue position first, then look at the shot, and follow that up with your normal step into position?

    Developing Expertise In Pool

    This is interesting, but it seems counterintuitive that you could position your body correctly for a shot without sighting the line of the shot to know where your body would need to be. I would think you would have to be keying off of some part of the shot to establish the needed position?

    Tiger shafts

    I have the tiger X-pro which was one of their earlier LD shafts. It fits my Dominiak Butt. Compared to the cues original shaft, it definitely presents with lower deflection. The feel is not as solid as a regular shaft, but it is far from a hollow feel either. I prefer a stiff feeling hit...

    Is Schmidt's and charlie 626 Legit

    That it is, which is why I was really surprised to see that this was still going on. Didn't he ever at least produce a video to sell?

    Is Schmidt's and charlie 626 Legit

    I have been gone from here for a while. The last time I was here, this record had happened, but the video was still awaiting release after several months. Has the raw footage still not come out?

    Components Necessary to Become a Pro Level Pool Player?

    I couldn't agree with this more. It is true in every sport, and generally every aspect of life. Becoming a top player requires both natural talent and a huge work ethic. Some players get there with a bit more of one than the other, but as the title of the thread asks, at least a certain...

    The new Aramith tournament balls

    Ok. I just saw these on the live stream, and I have to change my mind on my own personal preference. I do not find them attractive when seen on a pool table.

    The new Aramith tournament balls

    The U.S. men's and women's natonal soccer teams change their jerseys at least yearly, and pro football has camo jerseys and different colored jerseys all to sell more stuff. Styles change yearly in shoes and fashion, with many looking like stuff I would never wear, but high school kids wear it...

    Mother Drills/ Stroke Drills

    I did them for 30-40 minutes every day after my lesson, and I noticed a considerable change in two weeks. I didn't realize how much it changes until I got into a match against another guy, and I was just shooting that much straighter.

    Break cloth patch

    No way that is true. I use a swatch of cloth every time and my CB never jumps with a 20-24 (according to break speed app) mph break. I notice no difference in the reaction of the CB with or without the swatch, so I happily use it to protect my table. To each their own on whether or not they...

    Choosing a new/used table

    Don't make the mistake of buying a table that doesn't fit properly. You will regret it every time a shot comes up (which will happen more than you think) where a pole or wall gets in the way. Be patient and the right thing will come along.

    Choosing a new/used table

    I have a furniture grade brunswick that I have had for 15 years and play 3-5 x week, and I don't have any of these problems. It is also a 3 piece slate. I do use a dehumidifier which probably helps. Also, American Heritage tables use glued solid wood working joinery with much less bolts than...

    Cannabis Sponsor

    I think this is a great question, and brings up a good topic. The reality for tobacco and alcohol is that they have caused way more harm than we ever thought they would when they were originally allowed. The number of alcohol related deaths in car accidents and from abuse was never...

    Cannabis Sponsor

    Agreed. .. Also, people don't lose their life savings and become addicts with the lottery like what can occur with the other very negative sides of gambling. Just saying that it really isn't an apples to apples comparison that applies well here.

    Cannabis Sponsor

    I personally think its a terrible idea, but then again, I would never legalize it for recreational use either. It certainly won't help the image of pool, but maybe the image is there for a reason given the wide number of posts here that suggest this is a good idea. Just my $.02.

    who wins this game?

    Most SL7s in 9 ball are B players from what I have seen.

    who wins this game?

    I would call myself a strong C also. If I get to the table with a good shot 2-3 times, there is a reasonable chance that I win the match. However, A legit top tier pro is never going to let me to the table with a good shot. Of course I can play safeties also, but I am a huge under dog to win...

    SVB will be the first millionaire pool player??

    Jeannette Lee is probably the player who has made the most money consistently, and probably the most overall due to her significant endorsements. This article gives a good picture of her earnings. http://www.billiardsdigest.com/new_current_issue/apr_08/
