Oh I understand that the fraction is not the perception. What I said was that the basic quarters provide the references used to obtain the perceptions. By visualizing the ETA and CTE lines, you are...

You must not have watched any of the split the difference videos. As Mirza also noted, the guy simply aims through ccb to points on the OB. That's fractional aiming. And since you are so...

That's what I thought as well. I believe I called it watered down fractional system.

The thread started off as a comparison between Little Mike's system and your system or version of shiskabob.
I like the thread, but as you already stated....the latest StD vid shows something...

Lol. He might actually read it and discover just how simple it really is. I mean, some things aren't as complicated as they initially appear. :wink:

Lol....yeah....I was probably a little touchy or short-fused with Dave's response to my very civil post about StD and fractional style aiming.

And I don't think I've been pushing my book here...

This "trick" was brought to you by low500's trolling. Once again, a civil discussion gets splashed with a mud. And then you help push it even further from the thread topic.

EVERY shot in pool represents a specific fractional relationship between the CB and the OB. Pivot systems like Shiskabob and CTE use basic quarter factional reference points, then a pivot on the CB...

The way it was first introduced, with pivots resembling shishkabob or whatever, you are correct....It's not a good beginner method, or shouldn't be for beginners. But now he shows to simply...

I noticed the body shift. He is realigning to a new aim point on the OB, not pivoting from point A to point B. So he just looking at his reference line, either center-to-center or 3/4 depending on...

I give Mike a super big thumbs up for his attitude! Very cool guy. But I really don't understand this teaching method. He says he only spins balls when needed, yet this contradicts the video where...

If I align my cue tip/stroke through ccb to halfway between center and edge of ob, using that 3/4 aim as a reference, I'm going to produce a shot angle near 15. Now, if I align vs 1/2 tip offset...

The pre-pivot (offset pivot that ends up at ccb) provides a specific pre-loaded thinning adjustment to the natural shot angle created by the CB to OB reference point. It also sends the OB to a...
