    Recessed Light for pool table?

    Anyone have any ideas on the best way to align recessed lighting for a 9 foot pool table? I have 5 lights (1 that just points down, and 4 that are adjustable). I'm thinking maybe have the stationery one smack dab in the middle, but not sure if I want the eye-ball lights directly over the...

    9B: Runout or Early 9?

    Most 9 Ball players have told me it's better to run out, than to pot the 9 in early. What do you think?

    Cuetec Shaft?

    Does anyone have a Cuetec shaft? I bought a McDermott for my girlfriend awhile back, and she gave her Earl Strickland Cuetec cue to her mother. One night at the pool hall, some dumb azz grabbed her shaft, and we found some other shaft that doesn't fit any of our cues. I am looking for someone...

    OB1 Tip?

    I've been playing with an OB1 shaft for about 6 months. When it was brand new, it played great.....but now, the tip is getting super hard. It's still holding chalk, but miscues when using english. And the hit doesn't feel right anymore. I scuffed it down quite a bit, but it still seems too...

    Cloth tears at the pockets

    I have an Olhausen table, and I noticed small cuts/tears at the lip of the pockets. I think it is from pocketing balls. Is this normal? Or do I have a defective table?

    Ready for a career change?

    Many of us make time for pool outside of our work schedules. I am curious as to how many of us would quit their current job, and replace it with a job within the pool industry. Pool industry jobs might include: Pool Halls; Leagues; Events; Instruction; etc...

    Angle limitation for this draw shot?

    Most times, I can execute this type of shot, but sometimes the CB will contact the rail and produce an undesirable outcome. I think it is because I may have too much angle at times, and I just don't know where to "draw the line" for the angle limit. Has anyone figured out the limitations on the...
