Best Pool Teaching Aids - 07-25-2006, 02:30 PM

Thought I would ask the question what folk thought were the BEST Teaching Aid to improve your Pool Game

My Votes go for:

Robert Bryne VHS Tapes Volumes # 1 & 2 For Basic Instruction

Monk Tapes 202 Volume I, II, and II for Kicking and Banking.

For me it was the booklet that went with the Glenn Bond practice drill video. He didn't sell many of them, but the few that he did sell are probably still floating around in your neck of the woods. The section on speed control is priceless for learning better safeties or one pocket shots. JMO

watching pool on t.v for me, never really tried or used any training aids more self taught like it that way although i heard getting instructors and such can take years off your game. ... Rubber Bands?

for me it would be those little round paper donuts used to protect the holes of the pages in a 3 ring binder, and that 1/2 or 3/4 inch white medical tape. the donuts for marking the ball position (and the ball sits nicely centered each time in the hole), and the tape can be marked for follow and draw distance control. right now I mark the tape at every 12 inch intervals.

We use those in pool school too! Excellent, inexpensive little tools!

For me, its my cue case. When I'm not playing particularly well, I unscrew my cue, put it in my case... problem solved.

Seriously... the best training aid that I ever had was watching Buddy Hall and attempting to mimic his cue ball control. 20 years later I can say that it was worth every penny and every minute that I sat in the chair.

Capelle's and Bob Henning stuff. Bob's Pro books and video's are the best to complement lessons from a BCA instructor.

Hanging out with my buddy who hates to lose more than I do. He doesn't let me get away with being slothful in my execution: "How do you expect to beat the good guys if you let the chumps beat you?!?"
