    Gandy Big G ball return

    Hello all. Been some time since i last posted. I built a ball box for my Gandy a long time ago but lost steam in getting a rail system working. I just recently had enough with walking around the table to retrieve the balls and decided to finish it. Easy enough really. Basically everything was...

    9 ball break resolution

    I have played in a fair amount of halls in the NY/NJ area and never found to have an issue with my 9 ball break.

    Pro's shooting with mass produced cues?

    Shimming pockets and a restretch Questions

    I've been doing some searching on this site regarding pocket width. I see that 4.5" is considered on the tight side and 5" is rather loose. I have a Gandy Big G table that has been redone about a year ago and so the question is, is there a way of shimming the pockets down to 4.5"? I placed two...

    Hello all, I have a black 9' Big G Gandy at my house and so far has served me well. I have been searching this site for info about ball returns for Gandys and have not found anything yet. I have noticed that they are not very well liked. Oh well, for the money it has Italian slate and rolls...

    Newbie saying hello

    Looked around for a while and didn't see a specific place to place my first post. Sorry if this isn't it. I'm new to this site but been shooting for 21 years. My approach to the game has always been to advance my abilities. Never really interested in casual shooting. Before my family days I...
