Update Billiards Expo 2014 at The Villages, Florida January 15 2014, 1 Comment
Last weekend at The Villages Billiards Expo 2014 was a blast! Lots of events and lots of visitors. They had 4 small tournaments throughout the weekend, workshops, a silent auction, and several vendors. Ewa Mataya Laurance and Mike Massey gave several clinics and exhibitions.
Bob Heller and I set up a small display and we brought several cues with the Snapshot™ Ferrules. People were truly impressed at the looks, quality and feel of them. We encouraged many folks to take some shots and play with them as there were 8 tables in the next room. Response was great and very encouraging for me. They loved them. Orders are starting to come in. I just have to keep getting the word out. It's hard to get some people to change once they get used to a cue they have played with for a long time. I'm still looking for more installers to add to the website.
I even was able to get Mike Massey and Ewa Laurence to hit a few balls with my sample cues. They both liked the hit but Mike thought they were a little too heavy for him. I explained to him that I have a new version in production called Snapshot™ Pro which is made with a lighter formula and a thinner wall...and they will be available in 1/2" and 1" lengths. Ewa liked them a lot and wished me good luck with them. Both of them were very nice and friendly. Here's a few pics. Yeah, that's me with the hat. That's Bob with Ewa.
