But the Coke that we know and love today wasn't always like this - from the taste to the bottle, it has gone through various iterations through the years. In honor of years of Coca-Cola, take a stroll down memory lane and revisit all the iconic or not so iconic Coca-Cola designs, flavors, and innovations. Coca-Cola was founded in when Dr.
How "perfect" does a cue need to be to make a ball in the pocket exactly?
And when a "custom maker" puts the parts together, surely, not all customs do it to a perfect zero tolerance fit and finish. Just like production cues that are not perfect, clearly that are LOTS of customs cue makers that are far from it.
One of the best looking cues of all time was made my Black Boar imho, but she ain't gonna win me even one more single game at the end of the day. Baseball players have to use a piece of wood to hit a baseball traveling upwards of mph. Yet, they care about one thing. And everyone has a different preference for their hitting style.
Yet, in pool, we need the most perfect, "balls dead accurate" instrument to sink a ball that is not moving from 5 feet away. I guess I look at the various watches. They all keep time very well, the cheap ones almost every bit as the "gold standard" watches that costs thousands of dollars. Yes, they like that it's precision built to the highest tolerance, and they like the looks, and they like the collectible factor, but I've yet to see someone brag that his watch keeps so much better time than the cheap production watches And yes, I own both production and custom cues.
Here's one I'll throw out there. Schuler cues have always played well, and when Ray was running the show, the cues were made to a "high-ish" standard. When Ivan Lee left Schuler, the quality went down. I bought a Schuler from Greg Savoie, and we had to return it twice for warranty repair.
All in a one month period. All due to fit and finish issues. I finally had to return the cue 3 times in a 6 week period and get another cue. Jacoby recently took over making cues for Schuler.
You could argue that Jacoby has reached volumes that could make them a "production cue" company - they make more sticks than Schon on a yearly basis, and offer more designs. Quality on the Schuler line skyrocketed.
They actually look like a custom cue, now. And this is coming from, what could be argued as, a production cuemaker. I think some people have a vision of a production cuemaking operation as a bunch of minimum wage flunkies that are picking their nose while they are using the lathe.
Or a bunch of guys that take no pride in their work. Do you think you'll be better on a lathe by making 10 cues, or ? Or do you think that it's a new guy working the machines every week, as they have a lot of turnover, with regards to employees?A single 12 ounce glass of O.J.
contains an incredible 9 teaspoons of sugar, about the same as a 12 ounce can of Coke! This equates to 36 grams of carbs. In honor of years of Coca-Cola, take a stroll down memory lane and revisit all the iconic (or not so iconic) Coca-Cola designs, flavors, and innovations.
From glass bottles to slushies in reusable pouches, here's how Coke has changed through the years. In interviewing Grant McCracken, Millman reveals not only that the Coke bottle is an iconic shape, but also that Coke's Christmas campaigns gradually changed jolly old St.
