Pro Gear Edition (11/29/12)
Since you've been bombarded with black this and cyber that emails over the past week, we decided to get things back on track with a more traditional issue of DawgMail.
When customers call in here at PoolDawg Worldwide Headquarters, one of the questions we get quite a bit is "what do the pros play with?". Since it's such a popular question (and since it's such an easy way to pimp products), we asked some of the manufacturers to shine a light on the subject.
So this week, it's all about the gear the pros use. We're featuring four of the highest profile, best known players in the business to help you learn a little more about what the pros play with.
After you're done checking out the best of the best, don't forget to take a few minutes and read Jennifer Barretta's new article discussing five things to do during an important match. And away we go!
Johnny Archer - Scorpion Cues
Anyone who's been around pool for the past 20 years knows the name Johnny Archer. He's widely considered to be the best player of his generation. A few years ago he, along with Allison Fisher, were inducted into the BCA Hall of Fame. Next month, he'll be playing in a record 16th straight Mosconi Cup. Simply put, Johnny Archer is the man.
Jennifer Barretta - Lucasi Hybrid Cues
With the exception of Jeanette Lee and Allison Fisher, Jennifer is one of the world's most recognizable faces in women's pool. She's consistently ranked in the Top 10 in the WPBA (as well as ranked as one of the sexiest female athletes), has been featured in Maxim, Playboy and MTV and also happens to be one of our regular contributors for instructional articles.
When she's playing, she uses a Lucasi Hybrid cue. She's been playing with one for the past two years and told me that she's never played so well in her entire career. Naturally, we've got over 30 models of Lucasi Hybrid cues as well as both the Zero Flex and Zero Flex Slim shafts.
Alex Pagulayan - OB Cues
When you're talking raw talent, there are few players that can play at the same level as Alex Pagulayan. US Open, World 9 Ball and World Pool Masters are just a few of the titles that Pagulayan has earned over the years.
