    Question for Scruggs experts

    Yes, can be used in that capacity. It can also be, the customer likes the astetics of it. For example, some Cats love box cues, but every time I see one I throw up in my mouth a little. Brian.

    Jon Spitz Pool Cue

    Why, other than vanity?

    Most, if not all, pool rooms/bars I shoot in the patrons don't know the difference between a Tasc and a Walmart special. So, the only person that appreciates the Cue in your hands is You. I Bass fish and tell my Wife all the time, "when I'm out fishing nobody has a clue how awesome my gear is"...

    Who to build Shafts for a Scruggs

    Leon purchased some of Tim's equipment. I personally had a PH true Sneaky built by Sly to Scruggs dimensions. I could not tell a bit of difference between the Sly and my other 7 various Scruggs Sneakys. Cory Barnhart would probably be my first choice. Brian.

    J/B as a playing cue?

    I shoot with a gentleman that regularly plays with a Gilbert J/B with a shooting shaft. He's pretty sporty with it. He had it made with a shooting and break shaft. Brian

    Playing by official rules.....

    Was practicing one day, and of course, someone asks to play a few games. I ask what rules do you want to play by and he said it doesn't matter. I suggested BCA and he agreed. I broke, made the 2 ball, called and shot the 13, and he had a blow up. Said I shot the wrong balls and I was a cheat. Brian.

    Pirate Ship is amazing. It will give you a bunch of options, at really discounted prices. Take an 8' fishing rod to USPS once, you won't do it again. Brian.
