You're absolutely correct that speed is not controlled by bridge length.
What you say after that has me a bit baffled. I can't picture how changing your bridge length would change the angle of your...

Excellent post. When discussing this (or any) topic, many can't differenciate between the forest/trees. The amount of disinformation is staggering at times. Fortunatly, some, like Bavafongoul, get it.

Yeah, I know pj. Just trying to be a little kind and/or diplomatic. Why, I have no idea. Must be mellowing out in my old age.

First of all I'm well aware of what a swoop stroke is, I've been doing it for 50+ years.

I'm looking at the diagram and I'm sorry but the 2 CB's to the right are identical as to the angle of the shaft and tip contact point on the CB. You're saying they're different somehow???
And what...

You watched the video so you saw where the cue ball went. It's pretty obvious he hit the CB with low left, same as 99.9% of all good players would hit it.
Just because someone addresses the CB in a...

I wouldn't call this force follow. It's just a normal follow shot, nothing unusual.
Some people (336Robin) on here think force follow is what most would describe as stun run through. I've always...

I'd say she's already a great player. Bulletproof stroke. Pool equivalent would have to be Kristina Tkach.

Not to nit pick Stu but Tom is "only" 64. Superb run against Efren, never any trouble.

Where the hell are these guys? What you're saying just ain't happening without any help. Even with instruction, achieving that level that quickly would be extremely rare.

Try this. With your hand down at your side, make a fist. Very loosely, don't squeeze, just enough that everthing's touching.
Now take note of what you feel in your forearm. Don't feel anything,...

I'm going to ignore the above and focus on the question posed in the title of your thread.
"Is the perfect stop shot the holy grail?"
The answer is yes. It's the single most important shot in pool.
