Center ball to contact point, then hit it straight.

Has anybody ever tried this?

The vhs will be out soon!

From what I recall when I was listening to the 8track was that the trick is that you have to have the stick dead center under your chin and then with your right eye you aim the right edge of the stick to the left side of the ball and then with your left eye you aim the left edge of your stick to the right side of the ball.

The hardest part is sticking with it as most people can't work through the dizziness.

The T.O.L. method is where it's at when taking shots.

Shot of tequila with just a Touch of Lime.

That would be a geometrically incorrect system.
Will it be on Betamax version too?

I've been having trouble making thin cuts with this method...
....should I switch to an LD shaft?

If you said to aim the CB center.. to the right of the OB contact point.. on left cuts.
If you said to aim the CB center...to the left of the OB contact point.. on right cuts.

You said.. aim center CB to CP. The wider the cut becomes the more you'll miss.

I tried your way years ago. Didn't work then.. and even on VHS..it still won't work.

With everything about aiming,,,,, I'm sorry(IMHO), there are 2 people on this planet that I truly believe got it right about an aiming system. Those 2 people,,,, John Schmidt and Francisco Bustamante!

Jango was asked, "what's your aiming system"? He said "what"?? Again they asked your aiming system, how do you aim? He said,"oh yeah,,, I look and shoot! That's my aiming system"

And let me tell ya, it took a while to sink in, but for me, it paid off! My aiming system is "look and shoot"!

I'm not trying to start an aiming war, all I'm saying is what jango and I use! That's all!

Carry on!

I happen to be cross-eyed and I aim every shot this way. I actually see two object balls and when I have the proper aim on each one, I pull the trigger. Balls hanging in the pocket are much easier now.

Similar to aiming the cue stick at the contact point. :)
