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.

New Related Searches on PoolDawg

We’re always looking for new and interesting ways to help you find the pool cues and billiards products you’re looking for.  With this in mind, we’ve started rolling out our new related searches tool on the PoolDawg website.  The idea behind this is to give users an easy way to find products that are related to the product they’re currently viewing.  Take a look at the screenshot below of the Schon CX01:

If you look below the image, you’ll see an area called “Related Searches” with a number of links.  So, if you’re looking for a pool cue with cocobolo wood in it, you can click on the screen2.jpg“cocobolo” search tag and it will take you to a list of other products that feature cocobolo wood.  If you’re interested in seeing other cues from the Schon CX series, just click the “Schon CX” search tag and it will show you other cues in the series.

As you can imagine, adding related search terms to over 2,000 items will take some time.  Every evening we’ll be updating more products until we’ve covered every product on our site.  Interested in what the most frequently tagged terms are?  Just check out the “Top Search Terms” box on the lower right side of every page (just like the one pictured to the left).  The bigger the font, the more times it has been tagged.  Also, you can just mouse over the term and it will tell you how many times that search term has been tagged.

Questions?  Feel free to email us or call us toll free M-F 8:30AM to 5:00PM MST.  We’re here to help and answer any questions you have.

Frank’s Got A Friend!

On February 19, 2008, in PoolDawg's Friends, by Michael Feiman

Dutch the Bulldog

Denise over in Havana, Florida was nice enough to send us a picture of Dutch, her 2 year old American Bulldog. Apparently Frank’s not the only pooldawg out there. Dutch likes to hang out at The Corner Bar in Havana where he watches over the three teams that play there. Next time any of you are in Havana, be sure to stop by and say hi to Dutch.

Anyone else out there have a pooldawg? Just email us a picture at info [at] pooldawg.com and we’ll get a picture up on the blog. Also, feel free to join us on Myspace at:
