I watched a guy from AGA kick two 4500psi Argon cylinders down a hallway as fast as you or I could walk. One in one hand, one in the other... tilted, and he kicked one, both would roll...

I said, dang, you are pretty damn good at that...

he said, Look, I'll give you two cylinders, you kick them up and down this hallway, 20 hrs a day, for the next month.... you'll be as good as me... LOL

it's all in the pratice, the more you do, the better you get... some people love the pratice, others despise it. Some play as a game, some take it deadly serious.



that is 9 feet of pure compation green.

enjoy

love playing pool.. last 2 years in college I spent about 20-30 hours playing 8-ball on a bar table a week. Love playing, but I haven't really played since. My table at home needs refelting and new bumpers. but I agree... the 10r and my cues and I'm good!

that felt looks awesome, i love when u can see the stitching. I plan buyin a house next year, and one of my key selling point is a room big enough for a table. i want an 8ft table with tournament blue felt. :)

Yea i got to play on some simonis 860 (i believe) tournament blue felt down in new port richey. FL at a pool hall called strokers. all 8ft tables and the clean the felt and polish the balls everynight. It was VERY nice to play on. Im used to playing on these shitty bar tables and the cue ball is so fast on a good table lol.

i have my own cue...lol its a used action. Im about to buy a new one. I like the poison cues but they are outrageous, like $300 or so outrageous. I need to buy a jump/break cue also. Even though i cant jump for shit...legally anyway.
