I got some 626 secrete tapes for sale. For obvious reasons I can’t sell them online, but catch me in the parking lot and I’ll make you a good price.

The difference between 135 and 142 is 7 degrees, thats 7/16" per side bigger in the throat, a little over 3/4' not a 1/2".
EDIT - I was wrong with the below comment. I neglected to read PER SIDE. I suck at reading comprehension some time!

Lol get your calculator. 3/4 would be 12/16. C’mon man! 1/2 is 8/16, so 7/16 is LESS THAN 1/2.

You are smart enough to know that……

714 as in Babe Ruth? Could this record hold for as long as the Babe’s did?
Why would it? The JS '626' didn't last that long!

Congratulations, Shooter of Record!

I mentioned in a thread yesterday “it all ears Shaw wants it more than anyone who’s participated thus far”.

I’m not the sharpest guy, but I’d guess my read on that was right? How many balls did he pocket yesterday? All day.

I’m still taking the over on this one, I think Filler might have a chance-if he wants it bad enough. We’ll see

Good stuff for sure

Whatever the mouth opening is, 142-143° facing angles dictate a 3/4" reduction in size from mouth to throat. There's no math error - if the mouth is 5" wide, then the throat must be no more than 4 1/4" wide or the angles are not 142-143°.

The relative depth or shallowness of the shelf also a factor in the pocket-forgiveness equation as well. That can vary a good amount between tables, especially cheaper or poorly designed ones (which thankfully wasn't the case with this startling, pleasureable-to-watch run).

Has been said on here many times, it’s not the 5 inch mouth that makes this table play so forgiving, it’s the parallel pocket facing angles!
I understand 100%.
It’s just a shame that such an incredible accomplishment will now be scrutinized because of this. Still without question, the best 14.1 shotmaking performance in history - 51 consecutive racks, 51 consecutive successful break shots!
It is an amazing accomplishment. Truth be told, someone would have something to say about it even if everything was laid out perfect.

they could set up a star trek holodeck where you can physically go and inspect the pockets with a Tricorder yourself and there would still be people saying that the holodeck was rigged.

I will defend him on this just because I though the same thing at first. So for the purpose of being accurate:

7/16 per side of the pocket opening at the throat. X 2 = 14/16

The rest of his act here is pretty regrettable.

Honest to God I got the brinks for \$50

I fell for it 100% right down the line. I was 17 years old. Embarrassing yes. Worth the \$50 lesson? I’d send him \$500 more in hindsight.

I learned lots that night.
