    Aramith marble balls

    Tried these out today as a little change of pace. They’re nice. Felt a bit heavier than my Super Aramith Pro set. Played the same. A few of the colors are confusing at first. Once you play them for a while it’s fine. The cue ball that came with the set had no dot. I can’t give any feedback on...

    Public figures and professional pool

    How can no public figures be in any of the US’s bigger pool tournaments ever? I mean you can’t tell me there aren’t any movie stars, or sports figures, or government figures that are not able to hold their own with at least a “semi pro” player. They have to be out there. I know for a fact a...

    Konrad’s journey through suckage!

    Hey I’m posting a write up too. Chapter 1. So it took almost 6 mos and a whole lot of effort. Stroke after stroke. Day after day. Frustration upon frustration. I thought I was shooting “ok” when I started back. This is after 15 yrs off mind you. Turns out I wasn’t. My whole entire stance...

    New league members

    Quick question on leagues. I’m building a team with all undocumented players. I know around what their Fargorates should be. How does that work with most leagues. I’ll be the captain. Do I just sign us up with my best guess on our rates?

    Treadmill exercise bike

    Ill say upfront I’m not trying to be funny here I’m being very serious. I think if your hall is just set up for pool you should maybe have an exercise bike or treadmill Or both set up in your room. I’m probably not the only one but sometimes after a match in a tournament I’ll be waiting around...

    Quick warmup before match.

    When you get a quick warmup before a match on a table you don’t know, what’s your biggest concern? Stroke? Table? Cushions? Personally I always check if a ball locked on the rail will pass the side pocket. Definitely my #1.

    New game to help with safes.

    I’m working on a new game more tilted towards building a safety attack. Tell me what you think. 1. Rack all 15 random 2. Break. if any go in you keep shooting 3. Gameplay is like 9 ball with a few twists 4. You don’t start with the 1 ball. You start with the first ball pocketed. If the...

    Table height

    OK so I know some of you guys are taller or shorter. Well I’m not that tall. Anyway is there a trick to adjusting to table height with your stance? When I play at home I have my typical stance head position etc. when I go to the hall for some reason the table is like 4 inches lower. It makes...

    Jump cues

    If someone is looking for a jump cue and never had one before are there any suggestions for a beginner with a jump cue? Is one length better to learn with? Is it better to get a dual jump/break as a starter cue? Looking for opinions.

    Banks 201

    Are kick banks and carom banks legal/legitimate if you call them? They’re legal when I play with friends. I watched a couple pro games and they were available, but no one attempted any. So I was just wondering.

    What kind of cue is this?

    So I just bought a bumper pool table off a guy and he gave me a bunch of cues with it. I came across this. Its got really nice wrap if it’s a cheap one. Like the wrap is better than on a new Viking when I receive it. along with the reverse points. Is it a cheapy or a score? Ferrule is missing...
