    BCAPL New Area

    I was reading the thread about the USAPL and it made me look up availability of leagues in my area. While they don't have any it appears that the BCAPL is now offering leagues in the Scranton Wilkes-barre area. That is Awesome. Up until today I thought all we had available in this area was APA...

    aiming systems and Digicue

    Quick question will using an aiming system like ProOne CTE cause Digicue to vibrate? Seems like it might if you are lining up one spot on the cue for the practice strokes then hitting center ball on the follow through.

    Importance of climate control in a pool room

    Recently I added air conditioning to the room with my pool table. I was literally in shock on the difference it seemed to make both in my enjoyment of the game as well as the way the table seems to respond. This was only one more thing on my list of creating the same experience at home as I...

    Idea for Diamond Mod

    I was thinking the past few days about my Diamond table. It is a 7 foot table with procut pockets. Ever since I got it I have wanted to upgrade the cushions to Artemis as I believe it would make the table a lot more responsive. It would also have a much longer warranty then the Black Diamond...

    A few years ago my girl bought me a break/jump cue ( about $80 ) for Christmas. I was never really impressed with it. Still i used it regularly. I went to SBE yesterday and had a new tip put on it. The cue mechanic suggested I try a Zento tip. He installed a green tip on it for me. I got the...

    Ball cleaner polisher comparison

    I was looking online at ball polishers this week. I recently read someones opinion that Diamond makes the best pall polisher but they are also very expensive. I was wondering if most people on here thought that same way. I see Ballstar polishers far cheaper but they do not look very heavy duty...

    How popular is it really and whats the value of it?

    How many times per year does the average american shoot pool? I thought I read somewhere this past week it is less than ten times per year. I don't know if it is true or accurate though. If it is even close then there is very little hope for success in any part of the billiards industry unless...

    Instructional Materials

    I was thinking about this AzB and believe this forum is one of if not the largest pool related forum. There are members that are among the top in the industry. There is a section for instruction and ask the pros. Part of that section is dedicated to instructor reviews. Would there be anything...

    To spin or not to spin?

    I have watched a a series of videos lately that promotes using center ball (without right or left) for positioning at first then adding right and left afterwards to be used only rarely in 8 and 9 ball. It indicates most players tend to use spin on most every shot and that is why they plateau. It...
