    Old fiber ferrules cut like paper

    Thank you. I don't think it was micarta. They didn't yellow like micarta and seem to play not as hard as micarta.

    Old fiber ferrules cut like paper

    I had some old ferrule material I loved. I want to say they were pretty standard on old house cues in the 70s and 80s..It was matte and off white. It cut a bit more like paper? It turned like papery sheets. I've tried a bit finding then again, but the "fiber" ferrules I found weren't really the...

    How often do pros "practice"? What is enough?

    I knew a pro that would run drills by himself about 9 hours a day. He treated it like a normal 9-5 job and did it 5 days a week. If there was a tournament on the weekend then it was "extra time on the table". What is enough for most? I'm wanting to play my best and I've got a good system of...

    Super Touchy Subject Men vs.Women in Pool

    Agreed. It doesn't really matter. Because it's unlikely that we are about to see an equal number of women all of a sudden start to play pool and compete.

    Measurable Improvement from Equipment Change

    I played with a standard shaft for years and knew the low deflection would take some adjustment. Then I took a long break from pool (school, work ect) but then returned to pool and made the switch to low deflection. I have about 10 cues and I noticed that if I play with a different cue every so...

    Super Touchy Subject Men vs.Women in Pool

    Fargo Ratings have 100 point difference between the top Male and Top female pros. (Meaning the top males play twice as good as the top females). I figure this is because in my rough estimation there is about 100 serious pool players that are men to about every 1 serious players that are women...

    Flat tip vs. Radius

    I had a conversation recently with a top very intelligent player. We discussed that many pros use a tip with a radius but then they purposely flatten the top down so it's just curved around the edge. The reasoning was that when you use English you only use the edge anyway. And with center ball...

    Pros and Cons Gambling

    Last night a friend said that gambling on pool in the usa "hurts" the sport. I understand why this is often claimed, but is it true? Does gambling "hurt" poker? Or Blackjack? Does gambling "hurt" football? I love to play One Pocket for $10 or $20 a game. Maybe some golf on the snooker table...

    Cue wrap preference

    I know this doesn't make sense. I don't know why, but the billiard players loved to put the rubber sleeve over their cues. It rolls down the cue to the bottom of the handle then you unroll it back up. I found it really does give you more action playing 3 cushion for certain (up and through)...
