    TAOM V10

    I tested it now briefly and I can say it is better than Pyro. Sticks in tip like messy Kamui but it is as clean as Pyro. I don´t know how they made it but they still improved. Just wow.

    Diamond rails kill sidespin after 2nd rail when cloth got worn on rails. So many familiar routes that are safe to play on most of tables are possible to scratch on Diamond. New cloth Diamonds play good and not too much adjust needed. Also, worn cloth sometimes get bouncy. Then when u hit close...

    US Open 9-ball updates thread..

    Maybe so. But it is more because formats are different. Race to 10 snooker is like race to 30 9-ball ... or more. If pool matches were so long too snooker players had also zero chances to prevail.

    Judging/visualizing the "weight" of the hit

    Little nitpicking also from here. to get 50/50 speed is actually hair thinner than half ball with natural rolling cueball. With perfect half ball hit object ball goes little further than cue ball.
