    Lets bring pool back to the glory days

    Well, then that is incorrect. It's as incorrect as saying that a league player is automatically just some banger that couldn't navigate around a 9-footer if his/her life depended on it. So yes, let's absolutely affirm that introducing gambling into the mix is not and has never been the death...

    Lets bring pool back to the glory days

    I don't think that's what anyone is saying, and if they are, they're wrong. The objection is more to making it ALWAYS about money, as if the game means nothing if there isn't some financial bottom line to it. I'll play anyone for a little money if they want to and I can afford it. Why not? I...

    Lets bring pool back to the glory days

    This isn't necessarily directed at anyone specific, but there's a hell of a lot of generalizing here about league play and players. I guess my experiences have been different, and what I'm trying to say is you don't have to be either a hustler or a bar-box banger to enjoy this game. In fact, a...

    The BIG Mezz shaft thread!

    I was going to post an update now that I've had my Mezz setup for a few months now, but I'll piggyback off of this since I used to play with Predator shafts and am so glad I made the switch. I went from a Z-2 on a Joss butt to a Mezz ZZ36 with a WX700 shaft. The diameter increase concerned me...

    The BIG Mezz shaft thread!

    Thanks, Kim. I play with an open bridge, but am trying to incorporate a closed bridge into my game as well. The funny thing is, I wouldn't think that a smaller shaft diameter would matter much since my hands are pretty small, but I always did have a bit of trouble feeling comfortable with my...

    Has this happened to anyone here ?

    Also, on the subject of trying before you buy. A good way to do this is just ask other players if you can shoot a couple balls with their stick. It's not always proper to assume they'll say yes, but in my experience a lot of people won't have a problem with it. This is how I finally got to shoot...

    Has this happened to anyone here ?

    Hey I'm new as well, so welcome! This has sort of happened to me as well. When I started playing seriously, after a few months, my first cue (a Cuetec) started feeling a little bit off. A couple friends and fellow players even said they felt like my cue was holding me back a little. Without...

    my opinion after playing in several leagues

    Thanks! And thanks for starting a thread I could jump right into. :) That's awesome to hear that you developed that confidence and turned it into results on pretty decent-sized stages like that. It's a good feeling for sure and I definitely smiled when I overheard my LO for NAPA tell someone...

    The BIG Mezz shaft thread!

    Just got my Mezz ZZ36 in a couple days ago with the WX700 and am thoroughly enjoying it! I've only played for a little over a couple years now, in which time I went from a standard Cuetec (the Earl Strickland line, I think, back when Earl had his name attached to them) to a Joss with a Z2 shaft...

    my opinion after playing in several leagues

    Having played in APA, TAP, and NAPA, I'm kind of with lorider in thinking that NAPA is great and I really hope to see it continue to grow and expand in the coming years. In my area we have gone from a 6-7 team Wednesday night league to a Wednesday and Thursday league with 9-10 teams per...
