    Advice on a New Tip?

    I don't know if it's been posted before, but I ran across this picture of Times Square from the early 1960's, with Ames Billiards in the shot. It was located at 160 West 44th Street, at Seventh Avenue.

    Question About Paul Mottey Cues

    Most Paul Mottey cues I have seen have his name and date on the forearm. I'm curious as to how common or rare Paul Mottey cues with a "PM" on the buttcap are, like the one pictured here?

    I believe it was Randy Labonte on the Turning Stone stream who said that Shane recently played three 10K sets abroad over three days. Does anyone know the story behind this?

    Can Elevation Change Affect a Cue?

    I live near Denver where the elevation is over 6,000 feet, and I recently shipped a cue from here to Ohio. Apparently when the cue got there the butt was warped, and I'm positive the cue was perfectly straight when I shipped it, so my question is could the change in elevation have caused the...
