Rommels Billiards?

Postby atoms on Thu May 21, 2009 5:11 am

What happen to Rommels billiards.? It used to have a prominent name in billiards world. Now its name is vanishing in the industry. I used to buy cues in their main store in biak na bato in Q.C. I could find very good cues there. In fact 3 of my cues came from their store. But recently when I visited their shops again, their store are already closed. Only the playing areas remain. And you could already see in their set-ups that its already in a brink of oblivion. Rommels used to make fine billiards tables also back in the 70s. And its very active in promoting billiards back then.. :(

Nope! rommel's pioneer maker was path buan brother of zening buan of betis, guagua pamp (buan billiards) a former puyat employee. mang path learned from the older bro while working at the shop of atty.andress (table rental shop during 60-70's)
