Billiard Supplies. Where do you get yours? by ted mauro
Where do you get your billiards supplies?
If you are into pool and billiards and you are like many players, you are always on the lookout for some cool billiard supplies.
I am one of those guys who is running around the vending booth trying to purchase that product that I put off for the entire pool tournament. Now the vendors are packing up and I am trying to finally make that purchase.
I personally purchase almost all of my billiards supplies on line. I never find myself at the billiards store and it's easier delivered to my door. (Check it out, that sentence rhymed.)
When you know the name brands and values, purchasing on line matches the quality and the convenience is fantastic.
There are many different kinds of supplies for playing billiards. There are big and expensive products such as pool tables and billiard cues and the list gets pretty long when you get into all of the individual parts that go with them.
Pool cues have a tip, ferule, shaft, joint, butt, wrap (sometimes), bumper (rubber on butt end) and then there are possibly in lays and weights.
When you dig into the parts on a table, you can start with the stands on the legs (depends on table), legs, frame, rails, rubber on rails, felt (cloth), pocket inserts, ball return mechanism (not on drop pocket tables)
slate (could be 1 to 3 piece), trimming and decor and of course many bolts.
There are also many other accessories. You have billiards chalk, hand chalk, tip scuffers and shapers, mechanical bridges, table covers, cue cases of many types and size. If you have your regular pool cue, a break cue and a jump cue, you will need a case that will accommodate them.
How about billiard balls? (Very important billiard accessory)
You will find many varieties of billiards balls as well as many choices for keeping them clean and polished.
Then there is all of the training and practice billiard supplies. There are books, videos, lasers for your cue (aim trainer), stick holders and wall racks.
With this huge selection of billiard supplies to choose from, it could get a person a little overwellmed or confused. Google what you are looking for, read up on it and then make an educated decision.
To Your Run Out Success!
