Still, our eyes must see such tiny differences somehow or our subconscious wouldn't know how to fine tune our aim.


I think that's something every successful pool player trains himself to do.

The Revo may transmit more energy to the CB with the same speed stroke (I assume that's what they mean) - but that's the same as simply hitting a little harder. It doesn't produce more...

Me too. I don't remember much of the conversation (it was 20+ years ago), but I remember he was very nice, even though I was one of those arguing against the "logic" of his 3-angle system.
