Hi. Been awhile.
I could not get to my account after site was down. After that I was really busy-
Got some tournaments and started my own company. A lot of paperwork due that.

I also did some table tuning and now got new rails and Simonis 860 HR cloth on my table.
Finally it is not slowest table on earth anymore. Pockets are crazy tight but I changed pocket facing angle just a tad. They seem to play more fair now even they are tighter than used to be. TDF from Dr. Dave showed 1.14

I also finally did buy new cue. I decided to try Mezz with WD700 shaft(after testing over 20 cues..). So now I play pretty low deflection cue too. I played it now almost two weeks and it is starting to feel okay and I can say my shot making accuracy is about 10%-15% better. Even I still miss some shots because played all my life with solid maple shaft.

So a lot happened after last time I posted but I have feeling I will do Ghost more regular basis and will be even stronger. After i really start to get used to low deflection.
Anyways here is my 9-ball ghost with 7-3 win(played 06/13/2018). It have even Efren-kinda moments with it

As always I really enjoy this thread. I wished more az...members would participate in the ghost challenge.

Like I ask in a post above, why do most all not participate with the challenge? I understand that the ghost does little to help safeties but at the same time, I don't care how good a player is at safes if he can't run balls.....he/she will lose.

This thread should be more popular than it is. I'm sure there are some good players that would help others if they showed their patterns...breaks.....etc.

I enjoy playing the ghost. I have learned a lot by doing that. I will try to record myself getting beat by the ghost next time I am at the pool hall on a non league night. (The tables are ridiculously poor and hard to run on. They are triple shimmed, but there is something funny with perhaps the throat angle vs the mouth angle because balls hang up a lot, even at pocket speeds. There is also something wrong with the shelf, because it actually rolls balls back toward the table when a ball is in the jaws. Plus the damn pockets hang down, so if you get out of line, firing a ball in will just hop it off the table, or back onto the table.) Basically I cannot beat the ghost unless I am just on fire.

Used to play at Big Daddys and Deep Pockets in Alvin. Some at Legends in Clear Lake. Occasionally we will hit up Big Tyme or Bogies East. Have even stopped at Q-Ball for some snooker and even played some 3-C on heated tables somewhere downtown-ish.

Iím out of town and hadnít planned on playing but I always bring my cues just in case I get the chance to get out and play a little.

This table is a GC4 with 4 1/4Ē corners. I noticed when measuring the pocket that they have a little radius that starts about 2/3 of the way along the facing headed out to the point. Cloth stretched too tight? I dunno. It made the pockets a little stingy when shooting along the rail, but it wasnít a big deal.

What I think was worse is that my cue wasnít very level on a lot of shots and I was twisting my wrist like crazy!
I need to buy a camera with a tripod and film myself from multiple angles. Sometimes I am so off, I know it has to be something with the stance or the grip. Other times I cannot miss shot or shape. Being inconsistent is really bothering me since I am able to shoot well and get on fire pretty often. If I filmed myself and saw a wrist twist, I would probably be mad at myself hehe. I do know I have a steering problem I need to work out when I use my side English.

4 1/4" pockets are tough in general but add facing issues etc.... and it goes from tough to almost impossible.

Sometimes we need to play on tables like that so we are reminded of just how nice our home tables are. Yep, having an awesome table at home can ruin us for other tables.

I enjoyed watching the vid.

I wish some of the a55 hats that say the ghost is so easy would contribute to this thread. I guess it's easier to talk than it is to actually man up and post vids.

Again, I enjoyed it. I learn from watching others.

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?

As peppersauce said there are some great cameras on phones these days. His recordings are great. I've watched pretty much all of his.

Before you upgrade your phone or what not, keep in mind what I experienced when I first started to record my ghost races:

At first I was playing races to 3, then to 5, then to 7 etc...I'm currently at 11 to 15 on average with a few races to 25 here and there. Hill/hill in a race to 11 can go to 21 so I like to see where I would stand in a long grinding match with another player at my skill level. I know a ghost race is not the same as matching up in real life but it is the best I can do alone in my home.

I liked the phone as a recorder until time restraints became an issue. For me, being rushed is not good for my game so I bought a sony HD something-nother that will record up to 11 hours non-stop.

I spent less than $125 on the recorder and stand together. To upgrade my phone would have cost more and still would not have been far lacking compared to the recorder.

I'm sure you will do fine with what ever you choose. Bottom line to me is, as long as your playing and improving it's a win/win.

The reasons you state are why I plan on getting a camera. Its pretty inexpensive really, and I do play long sessions myself, even when by myself. Thanks for the input though. What kind of camera exactly? Just a cheap sony? Does it do 1080p? 4k? Seems like it would not be able to record so much data if so.

I can't remember all the specs of the recorder but I will check them and get back with you soon.

What I do remember is:

The better quality phones are waaaayyyyyy more expensive than a recorder and stand together.

It's just a no brainer to me for anyone that is worried about session getting cut short.

Nothing worse, to me, than being in the middle of a personal best at anything and find out the damn phone didn't record long enough.

Some of my session have been as long as 4 hours lately. A phone just will not handle that. Or at least no phone I've had, that I'm aware of.

Anyway, I will check and get back,

Rake

To me it was cheap. It is the Sony Handycam HDR-cx240.

I bought it at Wal-Mart.

You can Google the specifics on it.

I'm tech challenged to say the least. I just use the default settings when I record. I plan on posting another ghost race soon.

Due to catching chit from some members about length of race, ball in hand, pattern racking etc.... being to easy I'm planing on posting some longer races with (hopefully) obviously non-pattern racking racks.

Just because I posted that I know how to pattern rack without it being obvious, someone threw it in my face and more or less accused me of doing it during my posted vids.

Oh well, I'll play my game, on my table and use my rules. If folks cannot appreciate the fact that I'm just a nobody that's doing my best to improve my game, well, I don't know what to say except don't watch my vids and don't read my post.

My mother taught me to say something nice or keep my trap shut.

Anyway, in this thread it's usually all good. But in open forum there are some pretty disrespectful, to say the least....members that never post any type of proof of their level of play but have no problems bashing others attempts which leads me to believe they can't play dead.

I look forward to seeing your game no matter your level of play. Trust me, I'm not a strong player by any means but I have NO PROBLEM putting myself in the ring with even the biggest of beast. Yep, I'd get crushed but I would love it.

We all can learn from each other's vids. Of course, some had rather eat refried chit before helping another player unless they are gonna get paid. Funny thing is, lol most of the folks asking for money are mediocre at best and couldn't teach a fish to swim.

Again, I look forward to any play you post,

Rake
