I got my first Mulyiplying balls today. I figured why not start with qualtity, so I got Yellow 1 3/4 inch Fakini tournament balls. I also got Tim Wrights Video. I have Tarbells and Mark Wilson. I am looking into McBride. Is there anything else I need?

The Tim Wright video is among the best out there. Of all the billiard routines, I enjoy watching his the most.

With Fakini quality and instructional materials you mentioned, you have more than most experts had to start with. Practice, develop your own routine, and keep a classic alive.

Ah, that new Fakini ball smell, it's like a bouquet of flowers to a manipulator. Have fun Chris!

Great that you have an excellent set of billard balls and some great reference material to start your training. Now it is a matter of watching andlearning and practicing the moves.

A few words of advice though.

- GO SLOW: Too many manipulators want to learn so much too fast. Learn slow and practice the moves slowly one at a time. Take the time to get used to one before mvoing on to the next. There is no hurry, so take your time developing your moves.

- Learn right. By this I mean learn the move and study it so that you practice the move correctly. It is very hard to try and correct bad abits once they become habit forming.

- Do Not practice in front of a mirror. Instead video tape your practices. This is the best way you can learn if you are doing the moves correctly and can check your angles. Performing in front of the mirror does 2 bad things for you. 1) It makes you to dependant on the mirror being there. When the mirror is taken away, the manipulator has problems. 2) The mirror shows a reverse image of what the audience really sees.

Hope these tips help you.
