    What has happened to quality at Schon?

    It pains me to write this thread. I have been a longtime fan of Schon. I recently took delivery of a new Schon about two months ago. When I got it, I noticed some issues with the joint. The pin wasn't installed on center. Now, if this was a $200 cue, I wouldn't complain. A $1k cue? Yeah, that's...

    FS section needs a massive's an idea

    I used to like looking in the FS section to see what was kicking around. Over the past couple of years, the FS section has become 95% cue brokers, and the guy that's just trying to unload one or two of his used cues gets pushed back to page 12 in no time. So here's my idea - subsections. The...

    Has the quality difference between "custom" and "production" become negligible?

    Has the quality difference between "custom" and "production" become negligible? Having recently took some time off from pool, and getting back into it, I ended up having to look at my cue inventory, and started horsing around with different manufacturers and custom cues. Perhaps, 10-20 years...

    My "pay it forward"

    AZ, I got a divorce from pool last year, and now it's time that I split up our assets. I will be selling cues and various accessories. There is, however, something in my collection that I'm not going to sell. I'm actually going to give it away. I'm not telling what it is. All I am looking...

    A night with the ladies of the WPBA

    The ladies hosted a charity tournament on Wednesday night at the Seneca Casino, the location of the Tour Championships. You could enter a team of 4 for $100, or enter single for $25, and get paired up. My friend, Dan Lewis (D_Lewis on AZB) twisted my arm (didn't take much twisting) into going...

    No respect for players that won't gamble?

    I've been reading a bunch of posts here from people, claiming that money players are better than tournament players. Some have gone so far as to call out or question player's "heart" because they won't gamble. The Europeans don't seem to like to gamble. That's their choice. I do not feel...

    Was it the jump cue, or the jump tip?

    All this talk about jump cues has me thinking. I remember when the Mace and the Falcon J/B cues came out, people went out and got them. I had a Falcon J/B for years. Remember when the jump cue had a leather tip on it? Seemed like there was a lot more skill to the jump shot, even with the...
