All kicking systems are essentially the same no matter how things are numbered etc. When you kick, the cue ball obeys physics.

What Tor does that makes his "better" in my opinion is the use of modern video graphics technology to more easily teach his version of it. Which makes his videos kick ass.

It's not what you don't know that get's you in trouble.
It's what you know that just ain't so.

I fully agree with that. I watched his kicking video twice, taking notes while doing so on sheets of paper with 8 pool tables on it, so that I could remember the numbering system and how it changes as the CB and OB positions change. I have that all memorized and added to my brain. Don't know for sure, but I assume his systems are as good as any others using numbers.
What amazes me is how tables can play so different, dependent on cloth, brand of cloth, age of cloth, how it was stretched on the table and over the cushions, brand of cushions, height of cushions, etc. etc. Job number one is to quickly calculate how a table plays and modify the systems accordingly. I still can not describe a perfect table. Tor says his is "pure" but is it? Looks like a very cheap table to me, very wide open pockets that accept pretty sloppy shots. I hear a "thump" when the ball hits the rails, etc.

What table is Tor's kicking systems on? Is it the 8ft with big pockets?

I'd like to see it on a diamond with pro-cut pockets.

Shouldn't make any difference.

Math is math.

Tighter pockets are tighter pockets.

Repeatable straight stroke and the ability to play the necessary speed consistantly is the key to play the cueball with the necessary precision.

Tighter pockets just mean, that you have to be even more precise- as usual.To use a kicking system- no matter which one- also on a "tougher Table" doesn t need a magic bullet- just means that you have to shoot correct.
