    What Is The Most Over Rated Cue?

    This may be a boneheaded question, but for all of you who answer Predator, are we talking about the overall cues or also the after market shafts? I have no desire to get a predator cue, but I do like my 314-2 shaft.

    I’ll call around on prices. As far as maple vs oak- any more opinions? And Trent- we talked on the phone a couple weeks ago. Do you have any tables now? Deliver to 46321 zip? I can be flexible on delivery time. Haven’t closed yet.

    Diamond pro am questions

    Hey guys. Got divorced during the pandemic and moving to a new house. Can only fit a 7 footer. Almost definitely going Diamond pro-am. I like the rosewood finish. Simonis tournament blue 860. 1. I like the look of maple over oak. Any downside to it, other than additional cost? Is it less...

    Championship tour edition colors

    I'm going to put new cloth on my home table, and am going with championship tour edition. I have teenagers, and in my experience it holds up better than Simonis 860. I play mainly at home, and am an average recreational player. My questions: 1. Who has played on the basic championship...

    Which cue for a kid?

    I have a home table in my basement, and my 9 year old twins are getting into learning to play. I have a couple of shorter house cues, but want to get each their own two piece cue. That way they won't fight over who gets which cue, etc. I got my son a 48 inch one that he likes. The only...

    How would you handle this?

    I moved across town over Memorial day weekend, and hired a reputable company to move and recloth my table. I just noticed (actually a friend pointed it out) that the table has a roll/unevenness to it. The mechanic seemed to have known what he was doing. Maybe it's just the floor settling in...

    Left my cue in the freezing cold

    Like a bonehead, I left my cue in the car last night. And all day today, in the freezing (11 degree) Chicago cold. What kind of damage will that do? I took it down to my basement table, and it rolls straight and seems fine. Might I have done some damage?

    What's a fair price on Brunswick player's chairs?

    I have a table in my basement and have always wanted one (or two) of those cool looking Brunswick player's chairs. They go for something high like $600-$700 new at Great Escape and stores like that. Sometimes I see them on Craigslist as part of a package with a Brunswick table. I'm currently...
