    Free Jump Cue

    Yes, you read that correctly. I have a jump cue that I replaced a few months ago with a new one, and I have absolutely no use for it. I put it up for sale a while back, but didn't get any takers. (Here is the link to the original thread I started. It contains pictures and a description of...

    The Big 1,000

    A while back, I signed up for an account here not really knowing much about the site. I lurked as a guest for a while, and saw the wealth of information being passed around, so I knew I had to get in on it. Fast forward a few years, and here I am, submitting my 1,000th post. Granted, not all...

    Half Splice or Full Splice?

    I looked in the search, but couldn't find anything, so I'll give it a whirl here. What exactly is the difference between a full splice cue and a half splice cue? The answer seems obvious to me, but I want to be sure. Thanks in advance!

    Attention JB Cases

    John, I tried sending this via PM, but your inbox is full. I basically just asked you to re-post that Fargo Game Thread you posted earlier today. Due to one person intentionally stirring the pot - which was completely uncalled for - I believe it got deleted. I really want that thread to...

    New Forum Category?

    Since CTE and other aiming systems are becoming such a hot topic around these parts, (there are 4 or 5 threads on the first two pages of the Main Forum alone right now) is it time a category is created solely for those who would like to discuss them? This would potentially serve an even...

    FS: Piggy Back Style 3x5 Case

    Case is sold, thank you! Up for sale is an Aska 3x5 piggy back style case that I used for less than a year. It's in very good condition. There is a section about 1/2" x 2" on the back of the case showing minor wear from it being leaned against the wall. It's so minor it won't even show up in...

    Backup Cue Advice

    I'm looking for ideas for a second cue to be a backup to my main player. I'm really hoping to keep it to $150 or less, and I know you get what you pay for, so my expectations have been adjusted as such. However, I also don't want some graphite piece of junk, or a Wal-Mart special. If anyone...

    Sterling Wave Case Review

    I got my Sterling Wave 4x8 case today, and my first impressions have exceeded my expectations. I'll start with the outside, and we can work our way in. First of all, the overall appearance of the case is quite nice. I purchased the blue and black, and I am very pleased. It's got two shoulder...

    Sterling Wave Case Review

    Okay, so maybe this should be in the product review section, but let's face it, that gets like seven hits a day. I want people to actually read this review. I got my Sterling Wave 4x8 case today, and my first impressions have exceeded my expectations. I'll start with the outside, and we can...

    Me On YouTube

    Before you watch, a little background. I'm playing on a 7' Valley in my Dad's garage. I'm using the Magic Rack Pro. I know the angle isn't ideal, I realized that when I got home and watched it back. I'll adjust for next time. Also, since it would seem everyone who posts videos of...

    Everest Tips

    So I just handed over my two playing shafts to my cue guy for tip replacements. I am putting a new Everest on my OB-1 (main playing shaft) and my standard Viking shaft (my backup). Since my OB-1 came with an Everest on it, and this was the first time I have replaced the tip, I wondered how...

    Cleaning Your Felt

    I'm sorry in advance if this thread has been beaten to death, but I couldn't find much of anything using the search. I was wondering what kinds of experiences and/or opinions people have about using a product like Chalk Off to clean their table. I'm so close to ordering it, but something about...

    Shipping Your Cue

    I've read a few threads about people who have suffered devastating losses when their equipment was damaged in the shipping process. This thread is for anyone who has ever shipped their cue or had a cue shipped to them. In today's world, I'm guessing that encompasses 99% of this forum. I'll...

    Break Cues and Playing Cues

    Last week during league play, I had a minor altercation with a player on the opposing team. A little background first ... A few years ago, I treated myself to a Predator BK2 break cue. I love it endlessly and play very well with it. The site our league match was being played at is kind of a...

    Wanted: Solid advice

    I was recently left this shot on the 8 in a league game ... http://CueTable.com/P/?@1HRlU1JNUM4OYsg1PRCq@ As you can see the bank was taken out of the equation, and there wasn't enough room to try to cut it into the near corner pocket, so I was looking for a decent safety option to get me...

    Another FANTASTIC transaction from Neilsen' Billiards

    I just want to post this because I think Joe Neilsen deserves every possible compliment we can give him. I emailed him recently and told him that he didn't have an OB-1 shaft listed in his store that would fit a Viking quick release joint. He emailed me back promptly (at 11:30 pm on a Sunday no...
