    What type of audience is best for tv pool?

    A lot of the Euro sport fan mentality, especially the Brits, is imo a trickle-down effect from soccer. Those folks are nuts. China on the other hand is reserved in just about everything they do. They have come with some razzle-dazzle the last few years: The light/sound display after the 9b is...

    Small Town Pool

    They're disappearing fast. As people die off there is no next group like back then.

    What Shafts Draw better ???

    There's a guy that comes in my local room that is the poster-boy for this stuff. He's got a real nice later JossWest butt, $400 carbon shaft, $35 glove, uses $25 chalk and still can't make four balls if his life was on the line. Guy has no clue. Horrible stance and a stroke as crooked as a D.C...

    Gold Crown Identification This spec sheet covers 1-4 GC's. One thing about them is that B'wick tended to use whatever was laying around so some later 1's had 2 stuff on them and vice versa. Some early 3's still used...

    I fell for the Carbon Fiber Hype

    The REVO 12.9 is the lowest deflecting shaft that i have personally used. ONLY thing i didn't like was the sound.

    What Shafts Draw better ???

    The Meucci does have lower defl. than a Schon. Its possible that less defl. could result in a little more spin. I've owned Schon's and Meucci's and couldn't see any more draw myself.

    What Shafts Draw better ???

    My first good cue was a Meucci Original Buddy Hall-series BH-1. My next cue was a Dan Janes Joss with steel-joint and ivory ferrules. MUCH stiffer cue than the Moochie. I could draw the hell out of it with either cue. I've owned all kinds since then and never felt one drew better than another.

    UltraSkin Fire hard tip............

    Had one laying around so i put it on my Mezz 700 shaft. Really good playing tip. I'd put it between an Ultraskin Black med. and hard. Worth a try at the price for sure.

    What Shafts Draw better ???

    Draw is achieved by TWO things: tip off-set and a quality strike. In another thread someone said shaft flex affects draw. Wrong. Any flexing that occurs does so well AFTER the ball is long gone. Tip-to-cueball contact time lasts about 1-2 milliseconds. A human eye-blink takes about 200 milliseconds.
