The products below are what I personally pay for and use, or recommend as a great alternative.
I have identified trustworthy suppliers for each product in the links you can find below, and at great prices at the time of writing.
If you purchase from the links below I receive a small commission from Amazon or Ebay which will compensate me for putting together this list of essentials for you.
But of course if you can find better prices from other suppliers you trust then by all means go ahead.
1G Balls – the balls they use on TV (the balls in the set are all within 1 gram of each other – hence 1G). Comes with a silver carry case.
3G Balls – the balls that they use on TV but within 3 grams of each other hence 3G. This difference is indistinguishable to all but regular century break players. Does NOT come with a carry case so is not so easy to take to the club.
Chalk pouches – the best on the market for comfort, correct size, chalk not falling on the floor, and durability. You can buy pouches for a third of the price but I do not recommend it.
Century Tips – what most pros use as of April 2019. G3 is the most popular, and can be considered ‘Medium’
Elk Pro Tips – indistinguishable from Century to most players. I have used these for a few years and they have been perfect every time. I recommend Medium.
Black 16.8 X 14 X 130-210
Orange 16.8 X 14 X 130-210
Cue Craft cases – I always found these cases to be better than leather as they are stronger, have smoother edges to not scuff your car leather, and better in the event of fire. I have used mine for the last twenty years and take it to around 30 countries and it is still rock solid!
This book had a massive influence on my game and my coaching in my teens. I still use the tools I learned in this book every day in my coaching.
Tim’s first book – a worldwide ‘smash’
For anyone who wants to know what you need to do to get ‘into the zone’…. read this book!
This book transformed my thinking about how our life’s purpose interacts with our happiness. A must read.
The best book on NLP that I have read.
A brought a copy of this book for £0.52p in from a private library in Glasgow in 1992…. It has never left my library since and is the grandfather of all personal development books.
