No - it's not even a close imitation. It may still be a useful system for somebody who likes it - but calling it CTE is misleading.

I suppose so, if you want to split that hair. But it actually helps to demonstrate that the cause of skids is not stroke related.

OK (moan, groan), I watched it. As you thought, if you follow the instructions precisely you'll only get 4 cut angles in each direction. Contrast that with reality: you need 15-20+ cut angles in...

Despite what some believe, no aiming system can exactly define more than a handful of cut angles - if it did it would be too complicated to use. They're all "estimating guides" that get you close so...

Sounds to me like you're talking about throw, which can be increased by slower speed, fuller hit, less spin, sliding CB, etc. or reduced/eliminated with things like higher speed, more spin, or...

Masse is when the CB curves. Squirt doesn't cause CB curve; it only changes the direction you need to aim the CB. You could masse just as easily without any squirt (if that was possible) by simply...

I think they make aiming easier by reducing the size of aiming adjustment estimates that need to be made for squirt. It's easier to be more accurate with a smaller estimate.
