    4 ball - anyone playing?

    Great way to learn 3c is Korean 4 ball. Add a second red, hit both balls any way you want. Only foul is hitting opponents cue ball with yours. Teaches great control and helps learn the harder game of three cushion.

    Show us your Merry Widow Cues!

    Thanks to Doug Patrick for the linen wrap and modification on a billiard shaft to match this Viking. So fresh and so clean. Simple Birdseye players always appeal to me, and I'm a sucker for white joint collars.

    Tony Annigoni suicide

    That's sad news to be sure. I played at the Two Cushion Club with Tony. We played snooker, and he was always kind. Read his book too. I have had family who met the same fate and it is terrible even to think of. Great player and room owner.

    Half n half tip

    Has anyone messed with installing a tip of one hardness, then trimming down and installing another half of a tip with differing hardness? Not sure what made me think of it, but curious to know if it's been done. I have no clue if there is any benefit. Would try it myself, but I've moved and no...

    Brass jointed cues

    Good eye, but no, not an insert. The shafts were piloted wood. I flat faced one and have kept it for my sneaky, which fittingly I made from a dufferin purple heart blank off the wall of the Jointed Cue before it closed. Sold the Stonier cue. Nice crisp hit, but I never played it much...

    Show your Sneaky Petes, no matter how plain they are.

    And what fun would that be? I think a simple joint collar or buttcap isn't going to change the nature of what a sneaky pete is. Veneers definitely, joint collars, technically a fancy pete I'll give you that... But Nobody should be fooled by a sneaky these days unless they're a total dummy. Have...

    Older Vikings

    Here is my first viking. Shaft has a warp, but I have a nice OB original with a white collar that fits. Love the simplicity and old school style. Very Martin-esque. Anyone know the model?

    Show your Sneaky Petes, no matter how plain they are.

    This was my take on a Southwest "inspired" cue. I don't think they made sneakies. It's a hand rubbed oil and wax finish. Extra length butt with a compound taper. I have two shafts I didn't make that I use on this cue. One is a Tascarella curly shaft. I can't afford a real tasc or sw, so this...
