    Looking for some cue info on my Brunswick

    I first posted this cue back in 2003 here. My initial question was if it was a Joss made cue. Pretty sure that it is not. Main point in finding information is to see if it has any value, have not played in probably 15 years. I doubt that there is any real value to this cue, but figured it can...

    Another wood question. :)

    No way in heck I would try to make it myself. :) I would be lucky to be able to make a decent broom handle out of it. I have considered that a maker might not want the wood supplied, whether it be because he does not trust the wood or another reason, in which case it would at least give him a...

    Enjoyed my time here.

    But the board has more or less become a sounding board for people and the differences they have with each other more than a board for billiards discussions. Shame that people could not put aside their differences and pettiness for a mutual love of the sport. And I am not singling any one or...

    George Britner - Info?

    My playing cue is a Brunswick, many people had told me that it was made by Joss. Cue maker that I am dealing with said it was in fact not made by Joss but by George Britner who worked for Brunswick in the 80's. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about Mr. Britner beyond the fact that he...

    players new pool cue

    I have a players cue that I have had for a while, I dont use it as an every day cue, it is mostly a break cue for me. But occasionally I pull it out and stroke with it and for the price it plays quite nice. It actually has a better hit/feel than a lot of higher end cues I have hit with, at...

    Consistently inconsistent

    Inconsistence is the only major aspect of my game I wish to change right now. I've played for about 12 years, from playing every day for hours on end to playing off and on when the bug bit me. Now I play once a week for about two or three hours for league and that is it. I'd like to play...

    Slow players

    I vary my game speed depending on my opponent. If I am playing someone that plays somewhat fast, I play slowwwww I'll study each shot like it is the hardest shot in the world, I'll get down, stoke a few times, stand up and look at it again, walk around the table, re chalk my stick, and finally...

    Jinx in the Pool Hall

    Thank God. I am relieved, I thought I was jinxed, but I am just a loser. I read it on the internet, so it has to be true. Thanks for pointing that out.
