Something i just noticed
Watching the caudron freegame vid

When hes running the rail nurse
Seems he hits just a little above the horizontal axis to give him the correct spacing between cue ball and ob ball to ensure they aren't too close or frozen

What i read from hoppes book use below center to deaden the balls movement

And Its true
Try rail nurse and use a bit of bottom, kills the ob ball
Then try a bit of follow, gives you a little breathing room


I still cant run them well for some reason but thought that may be a bit of useful info

Hoppe used ivory balls. The play a lot differently.

It still works though
It does kill the balls energy with a bit of bottom on it

Well, OK, but I think the material is not presented well and some of the concepts are wrong. In this case, I think a bad video is worse than none at all.
