    I currently have an 8 foot table at home; its old needs replaced. Can't fit a 9 footer. I got to thinking today about what I should buy to replace it. I kind of would like to buy a diamond but would have to wait financially to do that. Then I thought; hell I play 98% of my games in league on...

    watching a one pocket match

    How do people like to watch a one pocket match for money? X ahead games or so many out of so many?I find it hard to watch one pocket for long periods. I can play it but just watching it on a stream to me is very boring.. I prefer short races: i.e race to 5 or something. The longer races to 8...

    Single Layered Tip vs Multi Layered

    Question.... I just recently picked up a pretty cheap cue and it has some sort of single layered tip on it. I was amazed on how much english I could apply when I wanted to the cue ball. Seems like it has more feeling also... I've always played with multi layered tips so I'm thinking about...

    Revelations in your Game/Mark Wilsons Book

    So I was reading Mark Wilson's new book and another AZ member also told me that just changing his stance like Mark said in the book helped him immensely so i tried it and it worked a little for me too. So I figured I better go through this book a little at a time and really absorb everything I...

    Capt/Co Captain at the Mosconi Cup

    In your opinion did either one bring anything to the table? Just asking to see what the consensus is.

    Just wondering. I've never hit with a Scruggs nor have a seen one in person but was wondering why when you look on the for sale forum there seems to always be at least one for sale if not a couple every day. Seems I read some good things about his cues just wondering why they are always for...
