    Rhino carbon fiber

    I bought one of these Rhino shafts cuz the price was right to try something new. It's been good so far. However, for playing....wood is good. I guess I'm one of the few fools out there still throwing lumber at spheres.

    Rhino carbon fiber

    For the $160 that I paid for my rhino, I'm very pleased personally. Everyone's mileage will vary, obviously. But I'm the kind of guy that would pay for a Corolla rather than a Lexus. If failure rates show over time that a product is inferior, then that is another matter.

    Rhino carbon fiber

    Bummer. My rhino break shaft is holding up fine for what it's worth. I play a lot of 10 ball as well. Failures happen, sorry it was yours.

    It’s not the league Lexington KY. The Cue Club here is pretty sweet. RJ invited me over for some onepocket a couple of weekends ago, but I had camping and hiking on the schedule for that weekend. I actually play his team in league next Thursday matter of fact. I'll be sure to tell him Quesports from...

    It’s not the league

    Also, in the case of BCA...your only playing 5 games of 8 ball a night. A lot of sitting around for that little table time. But it does beat sitting around at you parents house at age 46 wondering where it all went wrong and trying to figure out just exactly what resources will be available...

    It’s not the league

    This is true. I started playing in the BCA league again this year. 87% win rate currently, record 26-4 for the 6 nights I've played. I'll tell you what league is really good for.... getting one's mind off of pending divorce. There is one 700+ player in our league, I was hoping to get to play...

    your paying too much for cues

    Why hang art on walls? But people pay up to fortunes to do just that. Same with cues, cars, you name it. Budget gets the job done for sure.

    Wood Shaft v CF

    I see that words have been said here. The words themselves are of minimal import. The words must be experienced rather than scrutinized. And these words here....well, they certainly certainly do exist.

    Brunswick Spectator Chair. ESV?

    I would pay $200 for it as is. If it were closer to me, I'd probably already have it in my pool room.

    Cue Tip Size And Shape Effects

    I appreciate your efforts Dr Dave. All other discussion should be diverted to a new thread to discuss how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

    CONGRATULATIONS SVB!!!!! on Becoming the PLP Champion.

    That must be why I keep hearing pool needs yet even tighter pockets still. Time to try 3.25" pockets I guess. That way Filler can prove his immortality. Or, we could encourage a table that accomodates the virtues of most pool games, 9/10 ball, onepocket, banks and even 14.1 and 8 ball. I...

    Scott Frost challenges the world

    Gambling is for entertainment purposes only. Don't bet the rent $$$. Being a nit lock artist is preferable. I used to be in the horse betting business for years. I've seen plenty lose everything they had plus more. Fellas betting even their wive's paycheck (sorry for your loss ma'am, I know...

    Scott Frost challenges the world

    Based on poolroom logic, the Vegas casinos are mere nits. I think the casino shareholders should petition management to reduce or eliminate the juice, that way no one can accuse the organization of having no heart. It's really just common sense.

    For the Taom Chalk Users

    Honestly, I said the same thing. But I have a bad dust allergy and Taom is dust free. Masters, great and inexpensive though it may be, gets every damn where. Also I'm allergic to nickel the metal. No shit, go figure.

    For the Taom Chalk Users

    The only thing bad about this Taom chalk is when you play a ring game until the wee hours of Sunday morning and you leave your chalk on the pool table at the pool hall. It reduces your profit margin when that happens. With masters, I would just throw cubes around like confetti.

    Back pain while playing

    I do some yoga stretches each, cow and cobra. I do pushups since I'm already on the damn floor too. All that helps. I tweaked my back a few years ago doing stone work. Bad call there, been paying for that one for years.
