    Ultimate Pool Accessory? The Cataract Surgery Replacement Lens

    So I need Cataract corrective surgery. For anyone who doesn't know...they surgically (via laser) get rid of your eye's clouded lens and replace it with an artificial lens. Like everything else in life there are different tiers of replacement lenses. The first is basic, no frills. The 2nd &...

    The Character Arc of Fast Eddie Felson

    THE HUSTLER: Bert: I don't think there's a pool player alive shoots better pool than I saw you shoot the other night at Ames. You got talent. Eddie: So I got talent. So what beat me? Bert: Character Eddie: (laughs) Yeah. Sure, sure. Bert: You're damned right I'm sure. Everybody's got...

    OB Cues question

    Did the old school, original, Royce era OB cues come standard with Uni-Loc joints (or am I just imagining they did)? I'm trying to find a buddy of mine a great "starter" cue, but boy has the Covid supply chain issues hit the pool cue industry hard. I can't find anything decent for a decent...

    Can You Identify This TV Pool Table?

    This is a Pool table most people 45 and older have seen on TV, back when Color TV was new and most markets only had 7 channels. Can you identify the program & setting? BONUS: Can anyone identify the Pool table brand & model? Hope this brought back some cool memories. -Z-

    An App for Improving Your Game?

    Bored while waiting for something recently, I desperately downloaded the 1st Pool app I could find to my phone. It was called "Shooting Ball". It took a while to figure out all it's features, but I found it fun. It allows for specific aim, stroke speed/force as well as cue tip placement on the...

    2+ Years with a REVO Shaft.

    So I've had my Revo shaft for a little over 2 years now. Verdict: I'm never going back to wood shafts. No, it doesn't make me shoot like Strickland, Dechaine or Sigel, but there are some great benefits that I love and in my mind, for me, justifies the price. With wood shafts I could only...

    PureX Cue Case: Amazing Quality for the Money

    I wanted to purchase a new case in the 2X4 config. I really wanted a Whitten but didn't want to spend a g-note given recent world events. I looked at all the usual suspects and somehow they all fell short. Then I came across the NEW PureX Cue Cases. It had everything I was looking for. I...

    RIP Executive Billiards, White Plains, NY

    I was real sad to learn yesterday that Executive Billiards in White Plains NY has closed. I'm not sure exactly when they closed, but it looks like it was the late Fall of 2018. Their website states they're "moving" but I've heard nothing as to where. Finding affordable rent near White Plains...

    Coming Back From Carpel Tunnel Release Surgery

    Last Wednesday I had Carpel Tunnel Release Surgery on my left (dominant) hand. Four weeks earlier I had the surgery on my right hand. Boy, the things you take for granted, LOL! I've known since 2014 I needed the surgery, but I've put it off a bunch of times for one reason or another. My...

    Simonis Customer Service

    I was on the phone with "Felice" from customer service at Simonis this afternoon and I was beyond impressed at the level of customer service I received. She seemed genuinely interested in why I was calling. She listened intently, and she was very enthusiastic in sharing a variety of things...

    The Reality of Revo Shafts.

    Truth be told, I've never liked my stroke. I can draw the ball OK, but it rarely if ever looked like it belonged on a Pro's hi-light reel like that of so many players I know. With the Revo shaft, I've drawn the cue ball a few times and it surprised me how smooth it looked. The fact of the...

    Revo Review

    So I've horsed around with my new Predator Revo 12.4 for the last few days. I like the hit & the feel of the hit. I suppose at times the sound of a hit is a little strange, but it amuses me more than anything else. I do get much better results with my Follow & Draw shots that I ever have...

    Finally Scored A Revo Shaft!

    And although the haters are gonna hate, hate, hate... I'm still thrilled to report that through the benevolence of a good friend I now have a Predator Revo 12.4 for my Jedi Cue. How he managed to wangle such a thing(?), I'm probably better off not knowing ;) . I'm sure he made someone an...

    Benefits of Cleaning the Garage

    I'd been looking for these 2 bad boys since they had been spoken about some time ago of the forum. I knew I had them, and that they were in good condition, I just didn't know where they were. Went cleaning the garage today and found them among work books from my last job. That's about...

    Let's Get the TSA to Change Its Policy on Pool Cues

    Hi gang, I was a DJ for over 30 years, but I'm a Social Worker and have been for 25+ years. Part of my training is how to get organizations & the Government to change policy. Getting the TSA to change their policy on Pool Cues is in all likelihood just a matter of someone willing to to put...
