Here is something i seen on this site over a year ago in the aiming section and i saved it. Its mostly meaningless but i thought it was interesting, so carry on.

A inside pivot will have C contact point – inside edge to B – ctel to outside edge of ob

Sounds like it's either from the Kama Sutra or IKEA assembly instructions (they're pretty much interchangeable).

lol yea but i will always know pretty close to exact where the contact point is with just a glance at the shot, no matter what the angle of the shot is. I also would only need to know its an inside A shot and that will let me know where the contact point will pretty much be at.

If you're aiming at the bottom of the OB that would be a full hit on the OB (like a straight in shot).......the way I see it. On very thin cuts I don't see how one could aim at the bottom of the OB........anything thinner than a 1/2 ball hit for that matter.

It did seem that Eagle Man was getting slammed first.

When someone responds to insults hurled at them, it is usually they who get penalized rather than the person who initiated the ad hominem attack.

You're right, I was just kidding about the whole "bottom" of the ball thing

How did I not know this already? I couldn't miss a ball! why is this so much more accurate?

He went on tilt from other threads and ridicule/criticism of his opinions. It takes a lot of different ideas to make up a forum, but the bullies usually get the last word.

I thought this thread might be similar to this, but it is not.

It seems that if you take the bait and go on tilt, you're the bad guy. Oh well, nobody said the world was fair.
