View Full Version : To slip or not to slip...that is the question

06-25-2010, 06:45 PM
Some of the greatest players ever have used the slip stroke. Players the status of Willie Mosconi, Cowboy Jimmy Moore, Billy "Cornbread Red" Burge, and Eddie Kelly. There are other players also on the list, but these four stand out in my mind. I assume by now, based on previous posts, that everyone knows the difference between a slip stroke and a stroke slip. What I want to discuss is the slip stroke. I would like feedback from individuals regarding exactly how to execute the stroke, the pro's and con's of it, and any personal opinions of the four above-mentioned players or anyone else that is somewhat of an accomplished player or familiar with the technique.
