Super Diamond Chalk from Russia I saw this advertised on facebook so I got a piece and wow. All I can A really cool feature is that is has the QR code on the bottom of the chalk giving it a super easy way to connect to the company out in Russia. On their website they show that there is a black and a white wrapper. So all in all it’s a great chalk. I would just do my homework or get a hold of the guy that knows a LOT about chalk. You all know who I mean. This is the descriptio
#1 Best selling author Steven H. Gifford afforded
me the opportunity to interview him today. He has a lot to say about pool and
has been a driving motivator and leader throughout his life, writer, pool
player, Marine, and USA patriot. I have just downloaded Gifford’s book entitled,
‘Final Expense Boot Camp: Earn Your Stripes Today,’ and have gleaned some
insight into the man behind ‘Top Shots,’ and so many other upcoming books on
the game of pocket billiards & pool. The first
Billiards is a game of skill. Pocket billiards the game of choice for so many in the US and worldwide. Players invest in nice cues that sometimes cost thousands of dollars. Some types of tip chalk costs twenty-plus dollars a piece. Sure, it’s great to have nice things, but ultimately pool is about how well one plays the game. Respect is earned by a players skill, ability to run out, make shots, win — not by how much his or her pool cue cost. Some say, “the game is the teach
In this industry we are all looking for that competitive edge. In the end your stroke and creativity on the table is the only thing that will separate you. With that being said the equipment that you choose to put in your case and on your cue really defines what you’re capable of doing on the table. The tip has the most contact with the cue ball. So tip contact is important. The brand Taom chalk has been in the industry for a while now and is always making improvements in
“I’ve paid my dues
Time after time.
I’ve done my sentence
But committed no crime.
And bad mistakes‒
I’ve made a few.
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I’ve come through… We are the champions, my friends.
And we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end.
We are the champions.
We are the champions.
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions of the world.” –MERCURY, FREDERICK. The Mosconi Cup 2018 between Europe, and 13 other countries and the US just concluded
For those of you that like the forward weighted breaking cues there are some options. The idea is that the forward weight stabilizes the stroke. The Pechauer Black Ice takes that idea and puts it into this new cue. They infused the maple shaft with four chemicals to treat the shaft which makes the cue forward weighted. They also added weight bolts behind the pin. The shaft comes with the Pechauer break tip which is a layered tip infused with resin. From the Pechauer websi
The Roku chalk is another in the line of premium chalks. These premium chalks such as Kamui Roku or Great White are quite a bit more expensive than standard chalks such as Master or Silver cup chalk. They typically purport to bring advantages such as better coating, better friction to generate more spin, less dust, and less need to chalk the cue during play. We reviewed Kamui’s prior premium chalk, Kamui 1.21, which you can access here.
Overall, the Roku chalk is a very good
The chalk it self has a new look and feel to it. The new Hexagon shape that Kamui has chosen just feels right in your hands. The chalk feels a lot stiffer and harder to apply; it takes many swipes or brushings to apply it correctly. Once applied the chalk sticks to the tip with a different feel, as opposed to the other chalks in the Kamui line. In my opinion the chalk is harder of a consistency than anything else that is on the market. The chalk feels a lot different than any
Gaijin Custom Cues, and they want to make a cue to suit you. Robby, Marshall, and Josh are just typical southern guys with a love of the game of pool and non-traditional design. They have a simple philosophy, each of us has a natural stroke and the closer a cue is taylored to the player, the closer the player can stay to the stroke they were born with. Armed with this simple idea, Gaijin Customs was formed. Multiple veneers in the points in varying design styles, beautiful w

Mafia Mike’s pool hall is rated 4.5 out of 5 stars on Google — but I rate it a 5. It’s a small place, but has a big feel at 2700 square feet, with six 7 ft Valley tables — which are open and rented at $6 an hour, rather than coin operated, dollar a game. They have 5 smoke filters spinning above — charcoal filtered — mounted in the ceiling that look like space age ceiling fans.
