Truth is, I'm not man enough to shave.

I have a lot of chest hair. I've just trimmed it (not shaved) a couple of times and my chest was irritated for weeks.

It was miserable. It was like rubbing fiberglass on your skin.

If you avoid a foul, isn't it worth it?

You have to be joking, thanks for the laugh.

All your replies gave me a good laugh, but the question was ment to be serious. You know swimmers shave their body to avoid water resistance.

If you could move your bridge one inch to either side if your arms were shaven, don't you think it is an advantage. People wear gloves or use powder to avoid friction - some people think that is a joke too, but seriously nobody ever made a foul because their hair touched a ball? If you have long hair on your head, you probably do something with it before playing.

If I do it, I will post pictures:-) lol

In all but the highest level tournaments, where a referee is present to call fouls on all balls, I'm pretty sure cue ball fouls are the only ones of consequence. Everyone can see the cue ball... looking for arm hair contact would be a little tedious though.

I have a long way to go before arm hairs are keeping me from attaining a higher level of proficiency

It does help with the shots that are really close, rattle but don't fall. You won't miss those shots by a hair anymore.
