    WTB Black Boar Ferruleless shaft

    Tony and Donnie will make one up for $500 . I live overseas and had one delivered last year to someone who bought one of my older Boars it took about 1 month to complete. Unfortunately I never saw the shaft to hit with and they also made the shaft without seeing the butt. However, I heard that...

    Handicaps and your perspectives

    That's a strange answer, which doesn't approach my question from a holistic perspective.

    Handicaps and your perspectives

    OK I agree the boxing comparison wasn't the best. But I am only speaking about amateurs and can understand your viewpoint on pros entering. However, to get good I played in many tournaments and was beaten week after weekend thus threw money away but this gave me the positive drive to improve to...

    Handicaps and your perspectives

    I personally do not like HandiCap events. However, these types of events seem to be more prevalent than non-handicaps for an amateur player. Thus, I often compete in them to get the practice and to be involved socially.. I am not a top Handicap player in the events that I enter, however I am...

    Mistake,could have killed me last night

    I have spent most of my life playing in Australia, the Far East and Europe where we don't have the same types of race and gun issues. I have spent the last hour reading this thread and it has been a real eye opener. Words cannot express the range of emotions such as excitement, disappointment...

    Cue Tips, Non Layered Vs Layered

    I have personally found that the shaft has a lot of influence in the way a layered or normal tip plays. For example, I used to have a Predator shaft that I found played with too much reaction regardless of the layered tips that i found and I tried everything on the market at the time. Thus, I...

    Installing a wrap on a Sugartree sneaky??

    If it ain't broke don't fix it. I wouldn't alter that cue in a million years. If it is not perfect for what you are looking for don't buy it. If you put a linen wrap on the cue you will alter the way in which it was originally designed to play in terms of weight etc, although minimal it will...

    John Barton (JB Cases)

    I and a friend sent two emails in November 2012 outlining works for new custom design cases as we wanted to try JB cases out. The combined order would have been over $1000+. At the same time I also contacted Whitten with similar specifications. Joe emailed me back within 2 hours and my new...

    What massively improved your game?

    playing regular small money games against better players was the main factor in seeing a major improvement in concentration, consistency and composure. Of course a lot of daily solo practice in between - eg, practicing line up routines and experimenting with side and angles was also required..

    F/S Blackboar AS-10 Sample display

    I would buy it if you put it together for me. If not, I agree for a real BB collector this would be a great addition.

    WTB Black Boar shaft.Must have proof it's a BB

    I don't understand why he wouldn't make you a shaft. I just rang up and spoke to him and Donnie only a few months ago and there was no problem. Is you cue a Black Boar? If it wasn't and he needed to fit it to a different cue-makers cue or use a different joint then I can understand. But if...
