    Predator Ikon and Blak Series: Real inlays or Decals?

    A friend was showing me his Predator and everything looked a bit too "clean" to be inlays. I always feel like if you look extremely close at the outline of inlays, you can see the little "furry" pieces the wood inlays. That being said, some of the predator inlay edges look a bit too clean and...

    Buzzing noise from cue when hitting a ball

    Edit: you were right, it was the weightbolt. The allen key i used didn't have enough of a handle to torque the bolt so i thought it was stuck. I used the sale allen key used to put on bike cranks.

    Custom Schmelke: I'm a fan for good.

    Quick Summary for those who don't want to read: Schmelke's easy to work with, my cue plays way better than it should, it costs less than the lowest "good" production cue yet plays as well as any custom I've had. Now that we got that out of the way, after owning cues from all over the range, I...

    Schon SP updated with an old school look

    Here is a Schon SP I bought. I wanted to love the cue to death, but I couldn't put my finger on why not. Then I realized I wanted an old school looking cue. Originally I was going to purchase an STL4 and get a white/green spec linen wrap on it. But with the cost of purchasing a new cue...

    Best $20 I've ever spent on Ebay

    So I was looking for a cue to leave in the car for those emergency pool scenarios. I could always get something cheap (like a players/viper/etc), but I didn't want to spend more than $30 on this...and those were out of the range. Then I found a $27 sneaky pete on Amazon that may have served...

    Ted Minassian - Owner of Marie's Golden Cue in Chicago, Passed Away today

    Hey Everyone, I know this is a national pool forum (and the premier one), but wanted to post this up there for anyone that knew Ted Minassian and/or have ever been to Marie's Golden Cue in Chicago. Since it was one of the oldest pool halls in the city, I figured some of you have been through...

    Sharing my expensive and unwise cue journey, starting and ending via Schon

    Summary: Schon was the first cue I've hit with that wowed me, and after a long journey I'm back with Schon. Back when I first started pool, I bought a Meucci PPAC3. My friend loaned me his old 90s Meucci euro purple cue, and my cousin (who taught me pool initially) played with a Meucci Power...

    Changes in Pool during my hiatus from 2014-2018

    So back when i first started playing in 2011, I remember the pool industry being in a seemingly all time low. Then around 2014, I changed my career, adopted a dog, got a new apartment, and a shoestring budget since no raise. Also in terms of league, we all got boosted up in handicaps, no one...

    What does schon use on new cues

    Hey Everyone! I tried searching via forum and google search, but the only thing I see are about schon's old WB single layer tips. Having recently received a schon, it seems their stock tips are a softer hitting layered tip (when compared to the original). And I quite like them. I'd like to...
