When i ordered 2 more from Josey he was unaware of anything unusual,just another sneaky pete

I know you guys are funning with me,but I am serious and beginning to get edgy ( we both know that means it is time to turn up the heat)


I am going to receive the cue back this week.maybe Larry or Jake can discover the reason,if it still
works. I wish John Nemic would look at it,he is an engineer and a genius on cues


If it does still work II think you guys deserve video proof,if it doesn't work any more,then perhaps I was wrong
or made the whole thing up so I could look like a raving idiot

However as someone has suggested,this could lead to an opportunity for 10 of you brave souls to send me some money

Honestly Jack Potter was making Libra cues back then and he wanted to clone this thing. I know you guys think Jack is just playing along with me for old times sake,but this is on the square and it was
not an inch or two different.It hit draw masse' shots on medium speed with my stroke

I might make you guys pay for the video if you keep ragging me
I had a Meucci 333 back in the day that moved the cueball better than anything I've played with since.

And yes, some of us are funning you.

Although I don't have any pool related art, and I would love it, let me post some art I do have that you make like in trade(for either yourself or someone you know), I'd rather trade something than you just give it to me. I'll drop you a message this week if time permits. Hope you are well and looking forward to seeing the results from Larry.

No idea of current Kimbers. They went big and went to crap many years ago. I looked at a few at dealers and was very very unimpressed. Anybody that has shot a Hubilt 1911 would throw rocks at a Kimber!

I handled a couple of bullseye 1911's that a young man's father had shot with. The smith's name didn't ring a bell and I have forgotten it. They were different designs but both reminded me of precision machine equipment. By far the nicest 1911's I have ever handled and that included mine and most "name" smiths from 10-20 years ago. I was extremely disappointed handling some big name guns. Wilson built a 1911 that they knew was to be a carry gun for a cop. That piece of crap wouldn't even feed hardball.

Back to magic cues!

[QUOTE=Pete;6486942]Is that how The Rotation Master does that Monstor Draw in the beginning of his videos???[

I’m not sure about the Rotation Master, but I remember waxing CB’s with Johnson’s hardwood floor wax when I was a kid and it sure made for awesome draw shots. The downside to a super slick cue ball was that it was dead on the rails, so these days I just stick to the ball polisher products.

All of this long before the advent of Kamui tips and chalk. Interesting.

But, does it hit a ton?

Yeah so a quick look at the 1911 forums shows me how wrong you and RimJob are. I thought so, but I had to check.

Hits 2 tons.

It also changes the oil in your car, washes your dishes, runs the vacuum, and feeds the dog.

That cue is MAGIC.



I don't like making plans for the day, because then the word "premeditated" gets thrown around in the courtroom.

I have held cues in my hands that put ungodly amounts of spin on the ball (and the scientists can go pound sand). And I have held cues in my hands that felt dead -- like a corpse.

So I have no trouble believing Dean. If you've been around... you know.

I tend to lean your way here Lou. I have held cues, knowing their specs, that "felt" completely different than they should have, IMO. Some amazed me with the way the played, and others...not so much. Hard to always pinpoint why, sometimes they just do.

Was the cue shipped? Just wondering if it will be a day before you receive it or more like a year in cuemaker time.

What’s unfair about that?.....a snooker table is 12 feet long....and heavier cloth.
...therefore a snooker cue should hit a long ton....which is 2200 lbs and change
