These Amazing SLOW MOTION Billiard Shots are legendary and we can’t wait to release the full, NEW video this Thursday (October 18th)! Because we are so excited about it, we are giving you all a sneak peek of one of the shots and running a cool little contest with a prize for the winner.


Congrats to Christopher Lund for guessing the exact number of RPMs (3180) for the shot at :48 seconds in to this video! That's 21.28 mph if the cue ball was rolling! CRAZY SPIN Florian 'Venom' Kohler! The $100 Gift Card is on its way Mr Lund!

Below, we’ve provided a clip from the full video showing a spinning cue ball in super slow motion from one of the crazy trick shots.
