Introducing Snapshot® Tip Chafer-Premium Tip Maintenance Tool November 04 2015, 0 Comments introduces our newest product:

                     Snapshot® Cue Tip Chafer

Hi performance tip maintenance tool.  This tool is manufactured with the finest quality components including a Stainless Steel Lifting Plate, 8 magnets and Hard White Birch Wood.  There are no sandpaper inserts to wear out or replace and the Stainless Steel Lifting Plate will last a lifetime.

If you're going to improve your game you need the best equipment.  


The Snapshot® Cue Tip Chafer will make your tip hold chalk better, last longer and helps to prevent the dreaded miss-cue.  Held together with magnets, this tool does not take any leather off your tip, it simply raises tiny slivers of the leather which means it will really hold and retain your chalk. You will soon notice that with practice you won't have to chalk between every shot.  Feel the Stainless Steel Lifting Plate surface and you will see that it feels like sandpaper, but it will not wear out like sandpaper. But don't scrape your tip with it!

     So how does this strange looking gadget work?

Once you have shaped your tip with our 5 Way Tip Tool   (Available on our Accessories Page) simply cup the Tip Chafer in your hand and roll your tip back and forth on the Stainless Steel Lifting Plate surface.  Apply slight pressure on the tool (see photos) and roll your tip until you cover the entire surface of your tip. You will notice your have lifted tiny slivers of your tip without removing the leather, thus making your tip hold and retain chalk much longer.  AND since you didn't remove any leather your tip will last much longer. Chalk up and you're ready to play.  


The Snapshot® Tip Chafer far out performs other tip tools, especially the tip pick and tip tapper. These tools poke holes in the leather tip, then you chalk, then you hit balls.  This packs the chalk into the holes until it is so hard you start to miss-cue.  You will miss-cue more with these than any other tool.

The Snapshot® Tip Chafer also out performs Kamui's Gator Grip. The Tip Chafer has a larger Stainless Steel surface area, is thinner and lighter than Kamui.  And best of all the Snapshot® Tip Chafer costs $10.00 less than Kamui's Gator Grip.

Made of the finest White Birch Wood

Stainless Steel Metal Chafing Surface

Very Thin and Lightweight

Held Together with Magnets

2015 Ultimate Pool Shark Tournament July 12 2015, 1 Comment

Had a great time this last weekend at the Ultimate Pool Shark Tournament in Norcross, Ga.  This tournament paid $3000 to the winner and was a chance for 8 players plus 4 backups to participate in the filming of the pilot for the reality show "The Ultimate Pool Shark".  I was lucky enough to be one of the vendors and had an awesome time.  Business was excellent and the response and feedback on my cues and ferrules was incredible.   Met some great people and some future distributors.  One of my buddys Tim Neary from my town Ocala, Fl. is in the final 8 and my good friend Asia Cy is one of the backups.  Good Luck to you both!

Snapshot® Cues Are On Order! "Gorilla" Bob Heller To Put Them To The Test September 13 2014, 0 Comments

My friend "Gorilla" Bob Heller will put the new Snapshot® Cue sticks to the test.  His breaks are killer and I want him to break and play with these cues.  He is ready and anxious and assures me that he will not baby them.  Cues are on order and prices will range from about $100-300 and that's including a Snapshot® Ferrule already installed.   They will be very high quality and made to my specifications with hard Canadian maple shafts, and they will be available in several beautiful styles.

More info coming soon.

The Myth About Deflection December 29 2013, 0 Comments

I'm sure you have all heard of deflection and squirt.  High end cue makers have used this strategy perfectly to market their low deflection shafts... and with great results.  It wasn't long ago that no one even heard of deflection.  So how did players cope?  Here is a great article on deflection from Inside Pool Magazine:
