the point is it isnt the brand as much as how and who put it together for a table and a cue stick.
some brands are naturally better, and each person has their own preferences.

and as noted new and fun players prefer tables where the balls readily are accepted by the pockets. and to relate it to golf weaker golfers prefer wide open and shorter courses where they have a chance to score better and have more fun.

I thought that was what beards were for. Long tough shots I used to sometimes get low enough the cue slid on my beard at the side of my jaw, used the chin sometimes too. That old picture in my avatar is from my horse owners license in 1988.

Maybe we should market a chin and jaw protector made out of the same material as gloves!

@shotingarts My beard has made me miscue any number of times. I have had a few cues with very rounded joint collars, which can create a slight gap. I have lost many a beard hair when getting down low on the cue due to it catching and pulled out. I had one cue and shaft that was notorious for it.

To keep this in line with the thread, I even miscued this way on a diamond table. I am sure it was the tables fault too. Diamond should have warning in their manual about possible beard hair hazards.

I hate those very rounded joints because they make the joint a much smaller diameter than it first appears to be. Snatching hair is definitely a distraction. I had a house cue snatch a few hairs in a place I was playing. Got my opponent's attention when I brought out a big Puma pocket knife to deal with the issue before my next shot! Nope, didn't shave the beard, shaved the stick.

What's up with all the low post count, years old posters that just jump in like they've been chatting with old friends for years?

If a big bully steps up without his cue...what is he doing?

Hustling/ slumming, that's what.

I don't know it for a fact but I suspect that some people created two or three extra accounts when the ban hammer was flying fast and furious. I see people posting with ten year old accounts and less than ten posts.

I was messing around earlier and looked at my "friends". Most are dead or gone, or are they?? Whatever, I don't care.

I started this account 5 years ago when I bought my first cue after 25 years of using any stick handed to me (it broke in a week). I'm not a gear head in pool as I don't care about prices or brand, and this forum tends to head that direction.

I suspect most people have other interests they partake in frequently... carpentry, sewing, painting, music, writing (I enjoy all those). If it's not the hobbies, family. I started playing again 2 years ago solely to spend time with my son (he's in his twenties now). At some point, he won't even have time for that :-(, so I'm getting out there with him at any chance.

One thing is for sure, there is a lot of bitter people here caught up in some kind of clique trying to play head games, so it could be very possible (if not probable) that a lot of people have just abandoned this place in favor of Reddit or general point forums across leagues and venues. Being that somehow the billiards reddit isn't a bitter black hole (which is a miracle considering its reddit), that place seems likely to have some conversation you might enjoy.

I know some have multiple accounts for obvious reasons.

I know a few like myself that stop putting vids up because of the smarta55's on here that seem to not be happy unless they can start chit and they usually do so with one of their secret accounts.

Then again, there are a few on here that are old members that joined in 2004 or so and think there above some just because if that and I fell for that chit until I met a few of them. Lol.....couldn't run 3 balls much less what they led folks to believe just because they "sound" knowledgeable.

Anyways, yeah, I hate a keyboard tough guy. Better known in my neck of the woods as a COWARD.


I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

People are sheep. They rarely think for themselves. They have been conditioned to be idiots. And they are ok with that.
