Outlaw Badassery Edition (7/10/12)

Howdy PoolDawgians!

This week's issue of DawgMail comes with a nifty fact.  Did you know that this past weekend marked the 131st anniversary of Billy the Kid's death.  Mr. The Kid was gunned down by Sheriff Pat Garrett on the night of July 14th, 1881.  

And why do I bring this up you ask?  Because this particular anniversary provides an easy transition to this week's pitchy goodness - Outlaw Cues.  Well really I'll be shilling for both Outlaw cues and cases, but you get the picture.

Once you're done checking out one of my absolute favorite lines of pool cues (and cases), you'll be rewarded with a wonderful new Dawg Training article.  This week marks the triumphant return of Samm Diep who talks about the importance of keeping it simple when running out a rack.  As Billy's partner Dick Brewer said in a certain awesomely awful factually inaccurate 80s flick, Regulators, Mount Up! 

 

Outlaw OL29 Pool Cue

I'm not supposed to play favorites, but I'm going to anyway.  Of all the Outlaw cues we carry (which happens to be the entire line), this is easily my favorite.

Why is it my favorite?  Glad you asked, because I'm gonna tell you.  First off, the wrap is completely badass.  Not only is it stacked leather, but the two tone nature of the wrap looks insanely good.  The branded designs on this are killer too.  Classic barbs, classic 8 ball, classic awesome.

 

Outlaw Iron Horse Breaker

Now I know what you're thinking - Outlaw cue with a hard tip.  What's so special about that?  Well, let me tell you why this is so much more.

The tip and ferrule are pure phenolic, allowing you to seriously crush the cue ball.  The real secret to this breaker though is the extended wrap.  If you like to hold your cue further down near the butt plate, you're going to love this wrap.  It's leather and it extends all the way down to the metal plate, giving you an extra several inches to grip.  Plus, it has the words "Iron Horse" branded on the forearm, which happens to be completely awesome all by itself.

 

The Outlaw Starter Kit

So you've got your Outlaw Cue and you have your Outlaw case, but you're not quite ready to get all cowboy'd up.  You've gotta go all out and get the kit to go with the rest of your gear.

This kit includes a torch branded 8 ball rack, a nylon pool table brush and an Outlaw spade cue ball (regulation size and weight).  Yeehaw!! 

 

Outlaw 3 Butt 5 Shaft Nexus Case

There's a lot to love about this pool cue case  One of the great things about the Nexus style of case is that it provides all the protection of standard hard cases but doesn't weigh a ton while doing so.

This case holds 3 butts and 5 shafts and features two generous pockets (with the large one big enough to hold a jumper butt) but the best feature is the spring loaded tubes.  Each butt tube is spring loaded, making it really easy to get your butts out.

 

Samm Diep - K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple, Silly)

Remember that first bank or combo shot you ever made? Or, how about that first time you kicked in a ball when you were hooked? These shots are fun to shoot. When they work, they’re exciting and can make a fan out of any beginner. These shots, however, are not exactly practical and should really only be used when necessary.

While running out a rack of 8-ball or 9-ball, it’s always ideal to seek the path of least resistance. As you become more serious and start winning more games, this is something you’ll want to consider. Resist the temptation to show off with that fancy shot and choose the sensible route.

Save the flashy shots for play time. When you’re competing, keeping things simple will help you complete more run outs...keep reading
