Charlie ‘Hillbilly’ Bryant Joins the OB Team of Players

We would like to welcome Charlie 'Hillbilly' Bryant to the OB Team of players. Charlie has been using OB shafts for about 5 years now and we just finalized an agreement with Charlie to proudly wear the OB logos and represent our brand when competing. Charlie had this to say about OB Shafts: "I have been using OB shafts to play with for the many years. I have found that it is easier to draw, hold and masse the cue ball with them than any other shaft. I can cut a ball thinner with an OB and the draw angle off the ball is greater. When using side spin, I don't have to get as far out on the ball. I recommend the OB shaft to all of my students as having the 'Hillbilly Seal of Approval'. They come back and thank me for opening their eyes. In my opinion, OB makes, by far, the best shaft on the market."

Charlie is fresh off another victory after successfully defending his title at the annual Space City Open 9 Ball Tournament the first weekend in December. 

Charlie loves to compete at the highest level but the passion he has for competing is only surpassed by his love of teaching the game. Charlie is one of an elite group of top players that can also teach what he knows at a top level. Charlie and his wife Heather have a website that they manage that allows visitors to view Charlie's instructional videos via pay per view. Please support Charlie and Heather by visiting their website and checking out the free video on the site and if you like what you see, then you will have an opportunity to learn from one of the best. Charlie is known for his extremely powerful break and offers an instructional video on breaking technique for a bargain at $10! Please visit his website and check out his videos at
