    Snooker cues

    Been watching snooker for the past couple days. Can some tell these clueless people that they would shoot way better if they loss the brass ferrules and switched to a Revo? I'm joking of course.

    Olhausen Monarch Materials

    Not looking for a Brunswick vs Olhausen vs Diamond debate since I can easily search that. I am wondering if someone could answer a question for me. Is most of the wood on a Olhausen Monarch solid? I am assuming the pedestals and apron are MDF with veneer with the bed/frame being solid. Attached...

    Davis blanks today vs Balabushka

    I've been seeing Davis full splice blanks for sale and noticed that the points seem long. As in, once a joint collar is put on, the tips of the points look like they would be fairly close to the collar. I understand that he provided blanks for Balabushka at one point butI I don't remember seeing...

    My small collection

    So I gave in to the auction bug and ended up with two more cues. One a Adam Jim Rempe 7 and the other a Competition. I'm sure some of you may have seen them for auction. The Rempe is in really good condition for its age, all it really needs is a shaft cleaning. The finish is almost perfect, at...

    here's another id thread

    So here's a cue I took in on a trade. It was a complete crap shoot, but I was willing to roll the dice. It looks to be a conversion made a long time ago. The previous owner got it in Las Vegas 20+ years ago and said it was aged when he bought it. He has the inkling that it is a Kersenbrock, but...

    AMF or Brunswick Century

    So I am looking at two tables. One is a AMF from the 1960s the other is a Century. The AMF has that classic pool hall table look, similar to a GC. The Century for some reason looks kinda cheap to me. Which would you get and why? BTW the AMF is $200 more
