To explain the difference for myself and others who may be confused, the stun run is hit at a harder pace and more center ball contact with the cue tip than the drag draw which may be hit at a little...

I'd guess the drag draw method is the pro's choice. Because you're striking the cue ball below center, the cue ball is kind of gliding across the cloth as opposed to rolling, so it is far less...

So I assume he had to be getting a 1 ball spot, as the Freezer only needed one, but the game was over when there was still one ball remaining on the table? Hard to believe a guy that came up with...

I would assume the energy transfer from the cue ball to object ball has nothing to do with the tip of the cue - which is energy transfer from the tip to the cue ball. I'd assume the energy transfer...

I've used the Bludworth for 23 years and it does a very good job. Yes, it does spin the balls mainly on the same plane, but not entirely. If you look at the striped balls while they are spinning...
