We take pride in improving every event every year.

The triangles were not the best - but they were not horrible. Diamond is not using wooden racks much any more - too many of them walked. We have a new Diamond rack however, the first run did not meet our specs and was not available at the Bar Table event. We are told they will be available for the May event at the Riviera.

Many people assume a triangle is bad because the head ball does not go all the way into the corner arch. A good rack only touches the head ball at two points. I think most of the racks used were OK - the main problem is there is minimal finger space and can be difficult to remove the rack without disturbing the balls.

Remember next year 10 ball is being added.
