Dave was a really good man. Very good at working on your cues. A very Honorable man, which is rare in the pool world. It's safe to say I really like Dave. Damon Watson also was a students of Dave's.

Not many folks visit this section, but I can say Dave was a well -known and liked man in the pool world.


You should have a shot at the cash, especially if we don't get any top pros participating.
Good luck

I've known Mr. Bollman for many years. I loved sitting in his shop and talking to him. Didn't matter what was going on, he would always take the time to share his wisdom. He loved talking about cue making. He was ferocious on the golf course in his earlier years. Played pool with respect and grace. And would rake you dry playing gin. I sure miss him. Now I have to find someone else to do my cue work.

I will always remember Dave. In my earlier years of playing one pocket, he passed through New Orleans and visited the infamous Sport Palace where I cut my teeth on the game.

I, nor anyone else knew who he was and when he played me even up for either ten or twenty a game with a house cue and beat me rather easily, I thought he just might be a champion. He beat me three games in a row and so I got real close to him and whispered, "I am a top C player at one pocket and anyone who can beat me with a house cue is most likely a pro player. There are bigger fish to fry here than little ole me." Dave didn't say anything but he promptly lost 3 games in a row and quit. In a few minutes, one of the bigger fish jumped up and played him a race to 4 for $300 and Dave brought out his custom cue and filleted that guy rather quickly and then the word got out who he was. I never found out who knocked Dave's action but he seemed like a nice guy. At least he let me off the hook.

Been away from the forum for a long time. In the early eighties, when Jimmy Hodges owned a room in Ky, all the top players were there. I watched Bollman playing Jimmy Mataya getting the 7 ball at a healthy bet for many hours. Many, many hours.....very colorful match.

Yes I knew Dave. I always sent my shafts to him to put tips on.

As crazy as it sounds, but when he put a tip on my shafts, they really hit good.

I mean...it hit better than just a new tip put on a cue. It was always awesome.


Great guy and great player! I remember he played with a 60 inch or more cue.

My first bigger tourney about 30 years ago I drew Dave in the first round.

I one the first game, and after that, I got to the table 3 more times, looking at multi rail kick shots.

He had me locked up tighter than a crabs azz. He was a really nice guy away from the table and a fierce competitor on it.
