    Questions about stroke...

    First, a little about me. So, I'm not a complete slouch on the table. I bounce between an 8 & 7 APA 9ball, and I'm a 7 APA 8ball. I'd say a C+ player; I'm a threat to run out, have had several in-match. Now to my question: how does one develop the type of stroke wherein it never appears as...

    WH Micarta rounds/ferrules

    FS: Vintage Westinghouse paper micarta rounds/ferrules. I've sold a good bit of this stuff here and on FB, mainly in blocks. I've had several requests for ferrule blanks and or to have the slabs milled round. I took some of my private stock and milled them with my abundance of time during the...

    Who's building prongs?

    Anyone besides Prather building prongs, nowadays? Anyone in here interested? My father is building some nice cues, lately; but, he is not equipped for points just yet. I'd like to find a 4pt prong with veneers in my favorite colors from which he could build me a cue. He's built a few Prather...

    GC 1 Tangerine Skirts

    Figured I'd post here, as I know most mechanics collect parts. If anyone runs across a donor 9ft Brunswick Gold Crown, I'm looking to purchase a set of the tangerine skirts. I'll cover all shipping expenses, as well.

    GC 1 questions

    So, when I bought my CG1 it was originally a ball return table. However, by the time it came to me someone converted it to drop pockets. It still came with the original ball gullies and return box. Santa brought me some ball return pockets for Christmas, so last night I decided to convert it...

    FS: Westinghouse Ivorite Micarta stick

    Westinghouse Ivorite Micarta. This stick will yield 4 one inch ferrules, and finish around 12.8mm. Better tooling may get the diameter closer to the 13mm mark. $old shipped in the states. That's $old a ferrule - way cheaper than most charge. One guy I know through FB charges $150 a ferrule blank.

    Ed Robinson Custom Cues - new builder

    Ed Robinson, my dad, has recently set up his own cue shop to keep himself busy in retirement. Here are a few he's finished up, that are really too nice for eBay. Each comes with one shaft, or a second can be made for an extra $100. Each cue's weight can be changed if the buyer wishes, as well...

    FS: Joss West one-of-a-kind 4 pointer

    Nice JW one-of-a-kind confirmed by Bill and made while in Colorado Springs. The white butt sleeve is NOT ivory. Two shafts natural ferrules: one is 12.9 the other 12.4. Small taper roll in the middle of the shafts. Nothing leaves the table, and does not affect play. Just being transparent...

    FS: Parrot by David Hodges

    Have for sale a very nice Parrot by David Hodges. I've wanted a Parrot cue for a very long time, and was finally able to add this one to my collection.

    Something not seen often... Parrot.

    Beautiful Parrot cue. David Hodges confirmed its one of his from the late 90s. I was very surprised with this slim-handled cue. Really plays great. Now I know why they don't often change hands. I would trade this for a 4 point Parrot, only.
