    quick one re: "mosconi" cup

    was just pondering the fact that the cup, where 9-ball is the featured game, is named after such a great straight pooler apparently straights and tv don't mix well, I'm not sure- but it would be cool if they could incorporate 14.1 into the cup

    skill level re: equipment

    "it's the archer, not the arrow" is often repeated here, and other places in spirit, I agree- I've always liked the idea of grabbing off the wall and playing well and I don't think my game has historically been very affected by using different gear over the past year or two, I've felt I'd do...

    heavy shafts

    man, is like, "heavy," a relative term? is 5 oz. heavy to you? what I'm using now is 5 oz., and that number is increasing somewhat as a mainly open bridge player, I like the weight holding the shaft down and so far it feels good. I feel just a bit more confident holding my cue. but as with...

    making a cue more forward-balanced- ?

    I know you can make a joint heavier- pros and cons? I guess a shaft can be made heavier, but that's limited by its dimensions, what wood, etc.- ? just wondering what options are available/what's preferred amongst y'all, and why- thanks.

    11.75 vs. 11.8

    this is likely silly, but thanks in advance for humoring me besides .05mm, is there a difference between 11.75 and 11.8 diameter shafts? predator pushes 11.8- is that because they seek to differentiate themselves in the marketplace? or is there any other reasonable reason to go up to 11.8...

    long races

    agree with some guff about long races being too long but also admire the concept- typically, the longer race truly shows the better player anybody can win a short race, etc. so what format/length really tips the better player but without eating up the whole weekend pick your game- 1p, 8, 9, 10...
