New Product Review from Samm Diep – Zone Pool

On April 15, 2010, in New Products, by Michael Feiman

When Samm isn’t playing, coming up with new product ideas, taking the role of Denver billiard instructor extraordinaire, or schlepping up to Boulder to visit her pals at PoolDawg, she tries out new products.  Last month, she gave the Ultimate Pool Challenge a whirl (which she really liked by the way).  This month, it’s the new Zone Pool game.

Samm looks at these products from a number of perspectives ranging from their basic purpose and ease of use to overall value.  If you’re looking to buy one of these games, I highly recommend reading her review first.

Spring Training for Pool Players

On March 25, 2008, in Billiards Training, by Michael Feiman

March may be Spring Training for Major League Baseball, but with the APA, VNEA, ACS and BCA tournaments all just around the corner, March is also the perfect time to get in some extra practice and tune up your pool game.  Here at PoolDawg, we’ve got just the tools you need to take your game to the next level.

Low Deflection Shafts – Simply put, low deflection shafts make pool easier.  They give you more control over the cue ball and are specifically constructed to make sure you don’t have to overcompensate when putting english on the ball.  In addition to the OB-1 Shaft pictured above, we also carry the Lucasi Hybrid, Players Hydrogel, Mezz Cues featuring the WD700 shaft and of course the Predator 314 shaft.

Ball Control – Need to practice your english and ball control?  Check out the Jim Rempe Training Ball.  Easily our most popular training tool, the Rempe Ball has both a beginner and advanced player side so as you improve as a player, the ball will grow with your game.

  • See where to hit the cue ball for spin
  • Develop a better stroke by teaching a more accurate delivery of your stick to the ball
  • Optimize the rebound angle on ball and cushion for a better position on the next shot

Books, DVDs and More – With over 50 training items to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect book, DVD or training tool to improve your game.  Whether its learning to Bank with the Beard, improving your aim with a set of Pro Pocket Reducers, or even just brushing up on the basics with authors like Phil Capelle, PoolDawg has what you need to get your game tournament ready.
