Curse You Draco!

On December 19, 2012, in Service and Support, by Michael Feiman


Well, it looks like just in time for the holidays, we’re getting a bit of a winter storm.  It’s bad enough that the storm has a name (Draco) and no amount of spells learned at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is going to stop Draco from running his course (photo props to The Weather Channel).

Officially, there are blizzard warnings in Denver, Kansas City, Chicago, Pittsburgh and Syracuse.  This of course might cause some problems for ground package deliveries over the next couple of days.

We’re keeping an eye on the storm, so hopefully Draco won’t ruin Christmas for anyone.


We’re not big fans of box cutters here at PoolDawg.  Yes, we use them and they do come in handy, but if you’re not careful, they can do some serious damage.

When you order a pool cue case, try to avoid opening your box with a box cutter.  Really, when you order anything from us, try to avoid using a box cutter.  I know that you’re excited to get all that sweet new gear out of its packaging, but going too deep with the handy dandy box cutter can cause things like this to happen:

When we see box cutter mishaps like this, we turn into very sad pandas.  So please, if you’re going to use a box cutter, just be careful and keep in mind that there’s a whole bunch of awesome enclosed that doesn’t always react well to being sliced.


Gift Certificate Now Look Way Less Schlocky

On December 3, 2012, in PoolDawg Site Updates, by Michael Feiman

If you’re old like me, you might remember the old EF Hutton slogan – “When EF Hutton Talks, People Listen“.  Well, when our customers talk, we listen.

One of the biggest pieces of feedback we’ve received recently about our gift certificates is that they don’t really look like gift certificates.  We didn’t realize that people wanted to print these out and put them in envelopes or stockings, so our gift certificate emails were very texty and not very pretty.

After finding out that our customers wanted these to look nice, we came up with the following (which is now being emailed whenever anyone orders a gift certificate):

Not too shabby if I do say so myself.  If by chance you’d like to order one of these super snazzy new gift certificates, just head on over to the site!


Starting August 15th, while supplies last, Pooldawg is offering a FREE Pure X Technologies (by Players) HXT or HXT Skinny low deflection playing shaft ($129 VALUE) with the purchase of one of the Pure X Break/Jump cues.  WPBA Superstar/PoolDawg columnist Jennifer Barretta uses this cue for breaking and jumping and absolutely loves it.  Check out her Demo Video for a great description of the “awesomeness”.

With the free HXT playing shaft, this pool cue does it all and makes the perfect gift for any pool player! Three interchangeable quick-release joints allow you to configure this pool cue into five different breaking and jumping configurations and the additional HXT low deflection shaft gives you the bonus options of a top-notch playing cue with shorter configurations to deal with problematic obstacles around the table. There is no need to carry around 3 or 4 different pool cues anymore! This versatile pool cue does it ALL; Break, Jump and Run Out! All Pure X Technology pool cues are guaranteed for life… Even against Warpage!

The Pure X Technology Break/Jump Cue features several technological enhancements to increase the performance for breaking and jumping shots:

Multiple Break and Jump Combinations allow this cue adapt for any situation.  The full length is a standard 58 inch break cue.  Remove the middle butt section to increase your torque and leverage for a 52″ Power-break cue. Just use the shaft and middle section for a 35.5″ dart jumper for close jump shots or use the long jump sections for more accurate jumping.

Mz Multi-zone Grip

The Mz Multi-Zone Grip assures intense traction and stability on even the most violent of break shots. The different traction zones also allow the player to hold the cue in different positions to give them the perfect level of grip and control.

Dart Shaped Jumper Attachment provides extra control and accuracy on Jump Shots.  Tapering this section facilitates a more comfortable dart style grip for jump shots and a better rear weight balance for increased control.

 Carbon Fiber Impact Systems at the joint and below the tip are made of a virtually indestructible material and is utilized at the key impact zones.

 XLG Quad Face Tip increases ball-to-tip contact for a radically extended sweet spot.  This phenolic tip has no give at the moment of impact to get you more hop on your jump and more power for the break shot.

A Bonus Player’s Pure X Technology HXT Shaft ($129 value) is included with this cue while supplies last! The HXT low deflection shafts reduce cue ball deflection with a high-tech lightweight ferrule polymer that previously was only available on shafts priced nearly twice as high.  Available in the standard 12.75mm or the more advanced 11.75mm skinny version, all HXT shafts feature a Kamui Black Soft layered leather tip and are backed by a Lifetime Warranty.

The Pure X Technology Break/Jump pool cue is available in black or white at 15% off the suggested retail price of $229.99 for a sale price of $195.49 and you can select the Free HXT shaft in 12.75mm or the Free HXT Skinny shaft at 11.75.  This deal qualifies for free UPS ground shipping and also has the Pooldawg 60 day satisfaction guarantee so it is risk free!  If you are not 100% satisfied we can take it back for a full refund or exchange.  All Pure X Technology Pool Cues come with a lifetime warranty that even covers the shaft if it ever warps.   Click on the style you like best to purchase this amazing limited time offer now…
