What is the Best Billiard Magazine?

What is the Best Billiard Magazine?

Do you read any pool magazines? From what I've heard, there's PoolMag, Billiards Digest and Inside Pool, which are the big ones. Which one do you prefer?

    It really depends on what you are looking for in a billiard magazine. InsidePoolMag is the most professional of them all, and probably the one with the widest distribution, and coverage. They are relatively inexpensive - with several subscription options.

    The others are also quite good, but InsidePool is the biggest.

    Other than the ones you mentioned, there are:

    *Billiards Digest *Billiard World *On the Wire

    If snooker is your game du jour, there are a slew of magazines related to that niche too.

    Snooker Scene

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you,

    Do they have any different profile? Is any of them targeting beginners, anyone covering more tournaments aso?

    Best Regards, Erik

    In my opinion, none of the ones mentioned are specifically geared toward beginners. I mean that in the sense that I think even the accomplished players gain enjoyment or knowledge from reading them. That being said, I think they all would add a great deal to a beginners knowledge of the sport as a whole. When you are in to anything new, it is good to immerse yourself in it. Magazines are a good way to start.

    Billiards Digest and Inside Pool Mag tend to have more complete tournament coverage than the others, but if I had to choose one for completeness, it would be Inside Pool Mag.

    Personally, I have subscriptions to about 4 volumes, which I keep near my pool area in my house. I like to have em for my friends to browse while waiting for their game or whatever.

    Hope this helps!

    On The Break News is another periodical, but they mostly cater to the western United States region.
