Curious if they help for either the bridge hand and/or the shooting hand...
I dont know what brand name was re-bottled, but years back there was an 'invisible glove' lotion marketed to pool players.

It was an antiperspirant.

Give it a try, might solve your problem without any fuss.

For some reason, I keep reading "antidepressant" were you wrote antiperspirant...maybe an antidepressant will work too.

But thanks for the info.

i've tried antiperspirant on bridge hand before i used a glove. the problem is that when you block one outlet for the sweat with aluminium chloride or whatever it is, it comes out in puddles in other outlets

i would choose linen wrap

I will actually confess to having used this product during my match in NJ with JB.

It worked as advertised.

If you get into any more high stakes games, where the pressure is really making you sweat, I recommend this product. Its great for tense situations.

PS, their taint cream is stupendous.

I have no idea why you'd need that.

Maybe when you play you find a product like that useful but when I play that part of my anatomy is not involved.

Reading this, it sounds like you might need the Fresh Balls product if using a hand antiperspirant before shooting

Wet your palms with rubbing alcohol and let it air dry on your hands. You can carry a small bottle with you in your case.

"I know leather isn't for me since it will mush and look like a dead snake in a few weeks.

So either it's linen wrap or wrapless, but I can't determine which one will be the best option for a guy who sweats in the palm a lot.

My style of playing is that I hold the cue butt firm, kind of tightly when I shoot.

I am going to order a meucci and it got the option to have it coated = wrapless. Or just request a linen wrap instead, so I need help."

I'm sorry that I somehow offended you by my adding a question to this.

I did read this but was asking about an option not mentioned, figuring some of the experts (perhaps like you sir) might know about it (I believe Cork is also a "type" or wrap for cues I'd heard).

Your response reminds me of one by Mr. Lufrigno (or whatever his name screenname is)...

Cork was mentioned more than once though, prior to your question about it.

No worries though. Not like any animals were harmed in the making...

But you did liken me to Lou F. (Life could be worse, there too).

Whatever cue you like....wrap a layer of blue painter's (masking) tape over the wrap. Seriously.

You'll thank me later. You're welcome.
