    GC II ball box opening trim

    There are sharp nail or brad heads poking up higher than the level of the aluminum / plastic trim on the ball box opening on my table. The trim looks like a boxy extruded aluminum U that is bent to go around the corners of the opening Any suggestions on the cleanest way to keep the trim but...

    breaking down bondo filler to move table

    Non-mechanic here. I have to put my table in storage for now and I'd like to try to break it down myself. My only concern is the bondo between the slates. How do I break that down without poping chunks out of the slates? Tell me how to wiggle them and I'll go with the consensus. Thanks!

    Double Pins and Double Hits in One Pocket

    This comes up in one pocket for me all the time and I keep finding myself telling people that they usually can't shoot through this situation to safety because they'll be double hitting the cueball. If you look at these situations and say its legal to shoot through the hole, ask yourself at what...

    Frozen balls in One Pocket

    I'd like some experienced one pocket players to weigh in on this if possible. The rules that I've read and videos that I've seen sometimes seem to contradict one another on this one point. The situation is a frozen object ball and what determines a legal shot when playing the cueball directly...

    Vollmer Cue (imported from Germany)

    I'm considering selling my player for two reasons if I get a fair offer on it. Otherwise I'll likely just keep playing with it as I do like it quite a bit. 1. I'm getting more and more busy...so less time for pool. 2. I keep worrying that someone is going to steal it...and I'd rather lose an...

    White Joint Collar Material

    I'll be having a cue made in a few months and am curious as to the various white joint collar materials I have to choose from. I'd like to stay away from ivory. What are my choices and the pros/cons for each?

    why don't YOU play in a league

    Where's the chalk? :confused: Dirty balls are a bad thing. Accidentally goosing a woman who is not your type in a crowded bar with your cue. After the goose, she won't stop following you around asking you what you do while telling you she's thirsty. While lining up an important shot, she...

    Favorite One Pocket Shots

    What shot do you jump out of your chair to shoot when playing ol' one hole? Several come to mind for me. Here's one of them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxHlCQhfM2U http://CueTable.com/P/?@3EQvY3JQWE4Oaqq4PYtq4jaqq2jPQj2jbBK4jbJy4jYOj4kYtq4kaCG2kbHB2kDYi1kbIK3kbIj3kTxD@

    modern cueball finishes and weight distribution

    Does anyone know if moment of inertia of the measles cueball is greater than that of the matching object balls? I was trying a drill just now and it appears to me that it may be. I don't like light or heavy cueballs, but one with a higher moment of inertia may just be OK. I would intuitively...

    Stack leather wrap questions

    How do they compare with more traditional leather wraps in terms of tackiness versus slipperiness, durability, maintenance, and ease of cleaning. Do they have a little harder surface since they're burnished?

    860 versus 760

    Which do you prefer, 860 or 760 simonis? I assume that 860 has become the standard cloth due to 9-ball being the prevalent game. Although 860 seems to permit for more error in speed/spin I'm thinking I may actually like the responsiveness of 760 a bit more. I pretty much play all of the games...

    digital video camera recommendations?

    Any suggestions? I'll be in the market for one soon. Camera mount point will be about 10 feet from the center of the playing surface, looking down the length of the table, from 35-40 degrees above the horizontal.

    should pocket size be standardized?

    5 inch buckets versus 4 inch soul-crushers. Why is there so much variance? I can understand why some people like a tight table for one pocket (myself included to a degree), but entire rooms of 4.0-4.25 inch pockets seems a bit ascetic to me. Its a drastic change from the buckets of Mosconi's...
