    Funny pic/gif thread...

    Sorry I don't post a lot, but I have to chime in n this one. I lived in Hawaii for 24 years and opened and ran several companies. As a Houle I was sometimes resented by some of the locals. What they didn't realize was that without us they wouldn't have a job. So, are they better off on...

    Break Cue Tip Replacement

    Hi, I live on the Big Island of Hawaii and I can't find anyone to replace my Samsara tip on a break cue. I'm going to be in both the Long Beach, Ca area and the Tucson area in mid to late May. I could send the shaft to someone and pick it up when I arrive. Any recommendations? Thanks, Randy

    Break cue which tip?

    I have an Orange Crusher that was using the Samsara tip. Unfortunately it needs replacing and being on the Big Island in Hawaii my options are very limited. What is the purpose of the harder tips? Do you lose power if using a regular tip? As Dockter said he gets more control using a regular...

    During the discussion of the new Cyclop balls, the term "skid" came up quite often. I'm not familiar with the exact meaning of the term. Does skid refer to the cue ball skidding when executing the shot or doing something after contact with the object ball. My table was just recovered with...

    Break Speed App

    I use mine for when I'm playing and also to work on my break with the Breakrak. I just leave it on the table and reset before every break when practicing. I agree that it's needs to be able to keep a log. They could get rid of the Facebook link, just a waste for me.

    Name on Fabric

    Quick question, I am going to have my table re-covered and the local mechanic will be supplying the cloth (Tournament 3030). I want to make sure it is genuine fabric from Championship and was wondering if the name is on the backside to verify. Randy

    Best way to record game (camcorder or webcam?)

    You might look into a GoPro. Lot's of different resolutions available and with their app you can change it to slow motion for analyzing. I slow it way down from HD recording to really see stroke movements that need correcting. Randy

    Favorite Cloth Color

    I'm getting ready to order some Tour Edition 3030 and was wondering what everyone's favorite color was. We have a standard green on the table at this time. I'm leaning towards the the Euro Blue but SWMBO isn't quite so sure I thinks she like the standard green. She is just learning the game...

    shoulder sore

    Just for everyone's info. The rotator cuff muscles CAN NOT HEAL themselves. They are the only muscles in the body that don't have blood flow to them thus requiring surgery to fix a tear. You can do therapy to strengthen the muscles but eventually you will start substituting other muscles and...
