    Since NPR was removed from the general public from reading.....why not the aiming forum?

    This 1/2 ball hit thingie

    Since I’ve never visualized a 1/2+ball hit, how do you do it? You got the CB and the OB say 4ft from it. How do you determine it’s a 1/2 ball hit? What’s the thought processes? Is a Ghostball used?

    Vision not eyes....

    Mohrt was onto something about how CTE makes one use their vision different. I believe this. Not a lot is discussed about the different areas of your field of vision and how to use them. I ride and at one time raced motorcycles. It does require you to use your vision differently than driving...

    Simple Challenge.....

    Post a picture of a cut shot, then place arrows at all those points that anyone can see that are used for aiming. Like the contact points, like the fractions on the OB, or anything that you think is real and used for aiming. If you claim there are things that can be used for aiming, point...

    It ain’t easy......

    Pool is so simple it’s amazing how hard it is. This notion that any aiming or sighting methodology is the only necssary component needed to play consistent pool is just stupid. Consistency is all based on the person, the human behind the stick, not the stick, the human determining where to put...

    Aiming for under/overcut makes no sense

    This is gonna be fun.......... There is only one spot on the table that the CB rolls over to make the OB go where you want. Only one. You want to put the OB center pocket, there is only one spot on the table the CB can roll over to make this happen. Only one. You want to put the OB a...

    I see nothing.......

    It was stated else where that aiming using fractional method provides known points of aim. I just pick up a 1 ball and all I see is yellow, white and black. Where’s those so called “know points of aim?” They are in your mind only, not in the real world.

    This thing called vision center

    Of course, I have my own view points on this. First, let’s really define it with real world concepts. From my basic knowledge of vision, my definition of vision center is that point where both of the eyes line of sight is converged on. Notice it is where the eyes are directed to and not...

    Ghostball path a precision sighting method

    That’s right. It’s not a anywhere in the pocket method, but a method that precisely helps you put the balls where you want, and not just go somewhere close to where you want. If you need to go a little left of center pocket, no problem. Just sight the OB to the side of the pocket, which gives...

    Ghostball is the only way to go

    That’s my belief. That is what works for me. That’s what I basically use. It is more the Ghostball path really. What is the path the CB needs to go in order to accomplish what I need on a shot? It’s simple.....the only thing needed to be visualized is the path of the CB and OB balls. That’s...

    Pure Nonsense

    “That's true...however the dominant eye receives visual information 10/1000th's of a second before the recessive eye...far too fast for the eyes not to work together. Once your vision moves beyond 30", or hands reach, the eyes triangulate...so we "see" with both eyes.” I won’t post in the...

    There this thing called side spin

    Because of my nature, I think about how a technique is applied. So, I wonder how people can use a cue to aim when appying oh, high inside spin on the CB. Or when you pivot a cue to get on the shot line. The shot line is nowhere the cue line is when applying high inside spin. The cue is there...

    Where ya looking....

    In the main forum is a thread about eye movement. The are a lot a statements like.....”look at the CB then look at the OB.” Is this really true? Cause if it is, your looking at the wrong place. Just freeze two balls together such that one OB is dead on into a pocket. Place the CB somewhere on...

    Empty Mind....

    Being aware of what you are doing while executing a shot is not discussed a lot. To be aware requires a empty mind. With a empty mind, you can be aware of what your body is doing, how it feels while doing. There are no thoughts to block what you are feeling while doing. With a empty mind, there...

    Theory v Application

    Theory v Application.......in other words......it looks good on paper, but does in work in real life. Paper world versus real world. What this means is how well do ideas that are represented on paper in a 2d world translate to being usable in the real 3d world. Top and front perspective views...
