    What is the best pool cue joint/pin type?

    3/8x10 is the best pin ever. Source: Trust me bro! (and that's what my cues are so, of course, it's the best!) I'd like to say that I can tell the difference in hit between a metal pin into wood and metal pin into metal but I definitely couldn't tell the difference between a 3/8x10 and radial...

    Very nice! We actually might go to Nagaoka and also Shibata while we're there.

    Tokyo area pool rooms

    Nothing wrong at all other than most of the tournaments and stuff here in the US are on Diamonds these days so, if im going to hit balls while I’m in Japan for a few weeks, I’d go somewhere that had Diamonds if it was an option. Nothing wrong with GC’s at all.

    Tokyo area pool rooms

    Are there any pool rooms in the Tokyo area that have Diamond tables? Seems like most of the places I’m finding online all have Gold Crowns. I’ll be in Abiko, Chiba but I don’t mind taking the train into Tokyo. It’s probably 30-40 minutes by train to Ueno station.

    Arizona Tourneys

    Wow! Blast from the past! The funny thing is, I kind of remember making that last post in 2003. I am definitely no longer on the scene though.

    Heating unit for table?

    My table at home doesn't really play like I think it should and I am actually starting to blame the conditions in my house. I say this because I already sold one table because of how it was playing (just kind of dead, despite having new cloth and new Artemis rubber) and bought a 9' Gabriels...

    Tokyo area pool rooms

    Anyone know if there are any pool rooms in the Tokyo area where there is no smoking? I'm kind of thinking I'm s.o.l. if I'm looking for a non-smoking room there but, hey, can't hurt to ask. I'll be there for a little over 3 weeks in early April. Aside from the smoking question, what are the...

    Response to the "Snooze you lose" thread.

    I wanted to start a new thread because I don't want my response to get lost in the 5 pages (and counting) of that thread. The description of what happened is correct. One player forgot to move their coin to indicate that they were on the hill. However, both players knew the score and, when...

    Congrats Steve Lipsky

    I figured it wasn't fair for me to have a "congratulations thread" and Steve not have one. ;) Good job, Steve. Congratulations. Looking forward to seeing you in August. Hopefully I'll get out there early enough that maybe we can get together and play a little. If possible, I'm hoping to...

    Qualifier for Dragon Promotions 14.1 World Championship

    I posted this in the tournament section but, since it pertains specifically to straight-pool, I figured I'd post it here also for those of you who don't read the tournament section ... Just a reminder that there will be a qualifier for the 14.1 World Championship at Kolby's in Tempe, AZ July...

    <TBD>'s Army!

    So I was sitting here thinking (dangerous, I know). We all know that the Straight Pool forum here on AZB is BY FAR the best forum of the lot. Or, at the very least, we believe it. That reminds me of another group that is being discussed in the main forum which believes their little forum is...

    Schmidt vs. Sigel - A Reality?

    Here's a portion of the latest email from the IPT: Here are some important announcements from the International Pool Tour: The last IPT Ultimate 8-Ball free broadcast was a big success. Austin Murphy took his shot at living legend Efren Reyes. While the balls didn't roll well for Murphy at...

    Southwest/West Coast 14.1 Players

    I am posting this here instead of the tournament announcement section because I know most of the 14.1 players are in this section. :) The next stop on the Arizona Desert Classic Tour is the AZ State 14.1 Championship, June 21st/22nd. $1000-added/$50-entry. As with all of our tournaments...

    Shorter sets on loser's side?

    I'm curious what the opinions are on shortened sets on the loser's side of a tournament. Personally, if I make the decision to play in a tournament, then I want to have a chance to actually play; meaning, I don't want to play shortened races in the loser's side. If I wanted to hurry up and get...

    **PLEASE READ** Stolen Cue

    My cue was stolen tonight. If anyone sees this cue, and they can help get it back to me, I'll offer a $500 reward with no questions asked. I don't care if the person who took it gives it back. I will give the reward. It is a Padgett with an ebony forearm and butt sleeve. It has an ivory...

    New Addition to the Family

    I hesitated posting anything for nearly 2 weeks now but since I know so many of you personally, and because I'm the proud father here (:D), I'm going to announce that my wife gave birth to our son, Brighton, on 9/28 at exactly 2:00pm. He weighed in at 9lbs 2oz, and was 21 3/4" long. For those...
