    Everything's bigger in Texas

    Recently moved to the Great State of Texas, and have been frequenting a local pool hall. Great place, plenty of quality tables and really close to where I'm staying right now, but the pocket size...wow. I checked them all...same size on all of 'em. Pretty sure they are just a bit over 5"...

    Revo Stock

    Has anyone heard any recent updates on Revo stock? They've been out for several months now, and over the summer I heard rumors of being ready by September. September has come and gone, and now we are more than halfway done with October, and I've not heard anything.

    Slightly rounded cushions

    So I was watching 'Banks that don't go - but do' yesterday by the Beard and was curious about a set of banks he was talking about. He was talking about the cushions being ever-so-slightly rounded near the corner pockets as a result of the cloth being stretched tightly. I have seen many 1P...

    Here is the back story: Had a new 8' 'furniture' table purchased as a surprise gift for me when I returned from middle Middle East deployment in 2004. It was set up in our dining room complete with a nice set of lights and even had Simonis cloth (what a great wife!)...disclaimer: since it was...
