Haven't been to have my eyes checked in 3 or 4 years now. I think that at my age (58 1/2), I'm about due. The edges of the darker solids are starting to appear hazy on a lot of shots. Probably need to have my billiard glasses updated.

I will be moving my tv and entertainment center stuff to a different room, and putting in either a properly setup Brunswick or a diamond proAm. I'm ready to get to the next level, but need to be able to practice every day to get the consistency I need to make more event finals.

That's the plan anyway

My eyes are not to good. But I still play a little. Make sure you keep your eyes up to par! Thanks for your input. Pool glasses are very good for your game also!
Many Regards,

Hope to build a room and put in a 9' Diamond or GC. We'll see! Sure would be great to have more frequent shorter practice sessions than just hitting the pool hall once or twice a week!

Also going to give the CTE a real look.

I'm going to take out all the pockets and just put in a trough pitched to the
returns. That way they'll go in from anywhere. Because it seems like everytime I miss, the problem is there just isn't a pocket where the ball goes. I should see at least a 1 ball improvement in my game. lol
