I would have to imagine John would have been cleaning the balls after he reached 300, but I doubt he would do so frequently before that. His strategy was all about not wasting energy prior to 200 or so. So if he started cleaning frequently I would be surprised if it started before 300 or 350. But I expect cleaning occurred often between 476 and beyond.He told me absolutely 100% every rack the balls were wiped down between breaks.
I just mentioned the 626, he said what he did. I didn’t press him. It was in the middle of a conversation. So I didn’t drill down on any specifics.
that’s why I was reluctant to post here, I didn’t want to open a can of worms. But I did.
next time I speak to him I’ll ask more questions. And see if I can say his name. I don’t mention peoples names as a rule as I respect peoples privacy. Especially high profile people in pool or life for that matter.
