    Best pool learning books?

    It depends a lot on your level of ability and what you are interested in improving. In general, Robert Byrne's books are great (the Standard Book, New Stanard Book and Advanced Techniques). So is Ray Martin's 99 Critical shots. There are good reasons why these books are recommended so often...

    Ah! You are correct. Mine is the BK 2. I'm getting old-timers disease. Sent from my SM-T820 using Tapatalk

    The Inaugural 2021 NBL 10-Ball Championships - 16 Player Event with a $25,000.00 purse!

    And now Allen is eating pizza while on the mike. It was bad enough earlier when they were both sucking on candies, but this is worse. Ugh. Other than that, Allen and Allison are doing great at commentating.

    Bk rush jump break tip

    Good question. I got my BK Rush in 2010, and have never changed the tip. But mine is a break only, not jump-break.

    how are ya'll doing in league ?

    I won my APA 9-ball match on Tuesday, but it was another come-from-behind victory. I tend to get behind early, and it seems I get more motivated in about the last third of my match. It's a pattern for me. Ugh.

    2022 DCC attendance

    We've got a group of about 7 of us (still confirming a few) coming from the south Atlanta area. This will be my first time playing the banks and one-pocket events. Can't wait!

    Yup, I "let" Carissa talk me into a limited edition Predator in Vegas. I paid there and it shipped to my home. Very good to do business with.

    Antique pool books, and new reprints

    I've noticed this in books up to about the 1880s, where I can feel the depressions of each letter into the paper. What happened in 1853 to change that? Does that date apply to books published in the US, or UK, or everywhere? If you haven't seen this, take a look...

    Who makes conical tapered shafts

    Predator makes a conical shaft, the "Z": It's a smaller diameter though. Look for carom shafts.

    Hard copy version of "Controlled Aggression"?

    I'll take at least one, possibly two (one for someone else).

    Looking after old books

    I use these boxes, with a small silica gel inside: Depending on the size, you can fit several books into a box. I keep them laid flat, stacked, on a shelf, with labels on the front indicating what is in each box...

    Monarch Snooker pocket

    Does anyone have a corner pocket for a Brunswick Monarch snooker table? Working on a table that has one pocket missing, would rather not have to buy a whole set for just one. Thanks. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    JB Rugged Case - Scotchguard?

    Sorry, I had forgotten this thread was out there. Fast forward 2-1/2 years and the cases are holding up great. I've had beer, coffee and ketchup spilled on mine, well over a year after the Scotchguard was applied, and all cleaned up very easy. Not sure if the Scotchguard was still effective...

    APA AZB Vegas meetup - 2019

    Chili, I will probably be there that afternoon. We have dinner reservations with some friends that night. I am in Master's, my girlfriend is in the Captain's event, so there's no telling when else that week I may have free, so we are planning on getting Griff's in early.

    I will be there Aug 11th through the 17th. I'm playing Masters (Newnan Squad), the girlfriend is on a captain's team. We are planning on heading to Griff's on the 11th, because we hope to be too busy playing all week ;) Staying at the Westgate.
