    John, Thanks for an excellent point. Dave can amaze with his deep knowledge and awareness of many different diamond and other systems. And he loves to engage in discussions about them. He will grab a cue, a couple balls and start talking. He is brilliant, and explains his concepts easily and...

    Hu, You make a very good point about how Efren has always loved chess, and the obvious transferable skills to pool. I don’t know if Dave plays chess, I will ask him next time I see him. I suspect that if he does play, he would be very good. Chess grandmasters often speak of pattern...

    One time Efren was at Shooters Olathe for a big tournament. Loads of top players entered. Just under 200 players in the 9-ball event, less entered in the 1-pocket. With such a large entry in 9-ball there was quite a wait between matches, particularly on the winners’ side. Several players...

    Good comments. And he still can bring an A-game, occasionally beating guys like Bergman, Woodward, Compton, Joey Gray and others In Shooters Olathe tournaments. Not always, but he remains deadly. Supremely pleasant, a genuine contributor to our genre. Will Prout

    Dave Matlock and I play in the same pool room, and have for over 30 years. First, let me state he was an absolute world-beater, for decades. I do remember an interesting offhand conversation we had one night. I said, “Dave, the world has come to think of you as one of, if not the best ever bar...

    Stolen cues alert! Lafayette LA last Monday night.

    Damn, Scott, sorry to hear this. Rest assured in the metro Kansas City area we will all be on the lookout for your gear. The Samsara cues and special JB Case are all easy to spot, as are the entire lot together. Press the local police to review security video. Squeaky wheel gets the grease...

    In the 1970s I would buy cues from Bill Stroud, 4-point, no inlays for $115 with one shaft. I can still hear him regularly telling me it would be another $20 if I wanted a second shaft. lol WP

    Gus Szamboti 70's

    Logdog, I dug out an original Fellini mailer that I have from early 1982 complete with cover envelope, photos of several cases (tooled, not tooled, exotic, etc), along with prices ranging from $75-140. A cuemaker could choose to put some of the cost of the case in his cue cost, so it is hard to...

    Big pool table, small room. Could this be the solution we've been waiting for.

    I found your ideas as refreshing and creative as anything that has landed here in years. Obviously still prototype-ish, but sure seems to address the problem. Way to go! Will Prout

    National Pool Cue Valuation

    Danny Janes started JOSS Cues with Bill Stroud in MD in 1968. Don't think he ever worked at all for National. National also started about the same time. WP
