Bob, i didn't realize the cb to OB weight difference made a difference in outcome of shot until you brought it up earlier.
How i confirmed what you said was: i called the person that was playing with me at the time and ask him to weigh the cb i gave him. It was the cb I was using at the time. It was an old cb that i got from a closing room.
He told me that particular cb weighs 5.71 oz. The ob I was using at the time was 5.96 oz and had newer cloth. The ob still weighs 5.96 but, the cloth is a lot more worn but, its still in what I would consider good shape.
I cant wait till i get a little more time. Its my luck, I usually have ALLLL the time in the world but, for a little while now I've had to choose between my table time and family priorities and I'm pretty sure you know which one won.
Another week or so :dance:, and I should be able to spend a little time on such things. Right now, I'm doing good to get to play a short race to 100 or even 50 at times in 14.1 and I'm not about to spend that time shooting the spot shot instead of taking advantage of playing a really strong player that i dont get to play often.
You never answered my question about a crater at the spot causing the cb to slow down.
To keep you from having to look at previous post: I remember shooting that shot at a local room where the table had a pretty good size hole under ob ball when on spot (both ends of table was that way) and I recall the cb stopping much sooner on that table.
I have no idea what the ob/cb weighed. All i know is they were old. The cloth was older also.
Man I can't wait to play you some. I'm headed east in a month to my family reunion in Charlotte I'll make sure I set aside 4 days so we can play some One Pocket and 9ball I'll also make sure that I don't hit a single ball till then , I wanna make it fair ya know ! I hope you are as good at pool as you make yourself out to be . No offense intended just really sounds like you like playing good players and you like to gamble , heck you sound like me so it should be a great match and I'm rooting for you sir . Should be around August 8 -11... Keep playing great players it's good for the game !!!!
