    Pred 10-ball, call-game or not?

    I'm wondering, was the Predator 10-ball played with the new WPA 10-ball rules or the same as the 9-ball rules? I've seen some flukes by players, and they still stay on table. Did they call the shot, or did I miss something?

    Universal SmartShaft LSTX

    Have someone played with a Universal SmartShaft LSTX? Or known someone with this shaft? It's a new Universal SmartShaft (not a RS or LS). The shaft got a 11.75mm tip. So it looks like a Z-shaft. I would like to know more of this shaft. Escpecially if the shaft is comparable with a Z-shaft.

    Acceptable price for a new cue

    To a medium-advanced player, what price do you think would be acceptable? Ofcourse it is a personal preference issue. So I'm not asking, what would or can you spend on a cue. I've some thoughts about this. I think a cue below $200 would been an entry level cue. Above $800-$1.000 would be too...

    I own a cue (Longoni P8 with Pro2+), I know, its a billiard cue, not a poolcue, but that's not the question. I've played with this cue for like a half year, and it's a good cue to play with. When playing with english, I usually can predict almost always the deflection/squirt on the cueball. But...

    Illegal jumping of ball

    I saw this rule from BCA: Why is it a foul when you intentionally causes it to rise off the bed of table? Someone told me, when you do this, you will surely hit the cue ball twice, that's why this is an illegal jump. But when it's accidentally, why isn't this a foul? And what about when you...
