Thanks for clarifying. I get it now.

Backspin. Always. The goal is a stop shot. Joey wrote as low as possible.I agree. Backspin will allow you to use the least amount of speed required to stop...

As I explained before, I do keep a full fist on the cue for most shots. I don't squeeze my hand or try to manipulate the cue with my hand (unless the shot calls for it). As a result, as I move my arm...

Well, you know it's not instinct because humans don't have 'em, so you created a habit of keeping your pinkie off the cue. Have you ever tried to figure out why you do it? Could be interesting if you...

Well, aside from personal preference, you should also consider the following:

1.) Pocketing speed: At what speed the pocket will no longer accept the shot. For example, the pocket gets smaller for...

If you go back and read how Patrick used the term in his post originally, you will see what I meant about not understanding it. It's in the context of what he was trying to explain. A carom angle...

That's kind of what bothers me about that term. It's incomplete. If one line is the path to the ob, and the apex is the collision point, and the second line of the angle is the path off of the ob,...

Tony is a classic example of a modern grip --- full fisted and relaxed with the pinkie on the cue. He adjusts his grip pressure as needed for the particular shot but the grip itself remains constant....

Carom angle? Well the first thing I though of was the angle of the cue ball going towards the object ball rather than coming off of it. But even that was vague to me because I'd never heard the term...

Those with a full-fisted grip certainly change their pressure points as the cue moves through the hand. A spectator wouldn't be able to see it but the player feels it as I'm sure you know. The...

I don't like this shot because of the ob's distance from the side rail. If it's closer, no problem but this shot can be easily missed. It's an overcut waiting to happen, especially with low outside....

No, no and no. That's not for me and I don't play or teach that way unless someone insists on playing that way.

I highly recommend the pressure being on the back part of the hand, not the front....

I don't like that term (carom angle) for what you're describing. I had to ask you twice before I understood what you were referring to.

You can but you have to be cautious about bending both too much. Another way to do it is to keep your back leg on the straight side but with a soft knee --- very slightly bent, not rigid.
