Price: $11.33

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 Stars

Here’s a book that’s a good read. If you need to read something relating to billiards/pool I would recommend this one. This book caters to both billiards players who are complete beginners to seasoned professionals which I hope to be someday. What makes this book interesting is that it has colored photos to guide you into how to become a better pool player. To name a few techniques, you can learn how to perfect a bank shot, where to aim to hit a cue ball using your cue stick, and how to perfect combination shots.

Another interesting note to point out about this book is that it also teaches you how to play a game of 8-ball and 9-ball. The author, Dr. David “Dr. Dave” Alciatore has a passion for billiards and has dedicated everything he knows to playing the game of billiards in this book. If you have any comments please add them in the comments section, and I’ll do my best to answer them. Thanks.

Overtime, all new items in a household collects dust. So, if you want to avoid this, you might want to consider a cover to protect your billiards table. This can keep it looking like new and to play on for years to come. This can also prevent any unexpected scratches when the table is not in use.

There’s this item on Amazon.com that I found that is reliable in protecting your pool table, and hope that you are satisfied with.

Here is what this cover is made of:

  • Brown leatherette billiard table cover

I am sure that, in addition to protecting your table from dust, spills and damage, this item can also prevent the felt of your billiards table from discoloration especially on hot summer days when the table is exposed under direct sunlight. So, when it comes to table top protection for your billiards table, you cannot go wrong with this item.

There might be some of you that have extra cue sticks lying around that might already be occupied on the wall rack because there’s no more space. Or, instead of lying around, maybe those extra cue sticks are just put on the table because of that very same reason: there’s no more room to put them in. Well, here’s a stand that holds ten sticks,the 9-ball and 8-ball racks and all 16 pool balls

About this billiards cue rack:

  • 10 cue and ball floor rack – mahogany finish
  • Cues, balls, brush, chalk and ball racks not included
  • Made of wood – Holds 10 cues and full set of balls plus accessories
  • Hook for ball rack — Measurements are 31 1/4″ H X 29 1/2 W X 8 7/8″ D
  • Some assembly required

Instead of having only a wall rack which only holds cue sticks, you have the option of using a FLOOR rack. I saw this on Amazon.com and thought this would be a great alternative to the wall rack because not only does it hold cue sticks, but because it also holds the two ball racks and the pool balls as well.

As I was looking for a Brunswick item to find for you to play quality billiards on, I stumbled upon this item on Amazon.com called the Fat Cat Frisco II 7.5-Foot Billiard Table. I know what some of you might be asking yourselves, “Why is this table not from a trusted quality like Brunswick?” Well, as it turns out when I was looking for a Brunswick-made pool table, I found this item instead. And, knowing that all the items are not going to be made from Brunswick, my focus of this site is find items that are the “best bang for the buck”. So, I went ahead and decided to promote this product as it has mostly good reviews from Amazon customers. 

About the Fat Cat Frisco II 7.5-Foot Billiard Table:

  • 7 year warranty on the 1 inch Accuslate play surface
  • 6″ rails with white diamond inlays
  • K66 Rubber bumpers and Brown wool cloth
  • Beveled legs with wood veneer mahogany
  • Accessories include: 2-57″ cues, 1 set of billiard balls, 2 pieces of chalk

You can add additional accessories to go along with the ones that are already included with the purchase of the table. I will provide them in the next post for your convenience. I hope this table satisfies your shooting pool gaming needs.
