    How good was Keith McCready?

    ...even more impressive is that fact that Keith has been sober from drugs and booze for many years now!...something few other former champions can attest to. Scott Lee 2019 PBIA Instructor of the Year Director, SPF National Pool School Tour

    SLOW BACK SWING

    All true here! I'd like to add that ALL pool strokes have a pause at the back, whether it's intentional or accidental. It's just about how long or short it is. Physics says you have to stop the backward movement, to some degree, to change direction and accelerate smoothly. Otherwise you...

    Six ball run out - criticism wanted

    Leigh...Your personal finish is yours. How far past the CB your tip finishes has no bearing on what happens afterwards. Cuestick speed, loose grip and tip position are the important variables. FYI Allison only finishes her stroke a couple inches past the CB (which is her natural finish), and...

    Southeast Houston Players

    Marcus...It's been a long time since I was at your house! One of my good friends, and a PBIA Advanced Instructor, is Rufus Carter. He lives on your side of town, and has a 9' table too! He posts here under his own name, and his information is on the PBIA website! Scott Lee 2019 PBIA...

    Young People and Pool

    What a crock! 99.9% of American poolplayers have no idea who Josh Filler even is. They can't even name an American pro player. Scott Lee 2019 PBIA Instructor of the Year Director, SPF National Pool School Tour

    The Toughest Shot in Billiards

    Since it's apparently so easy and natural, why don't you post up a video of you making that shot. I'd say you have ZERO chance to make this shot. Scott Lee 2019 PBIA Instructor of the Year Director, SPF National Pool School Tour

    Speed Control

    Everybody pauses at the end of the backswing...even those players who think they don't. It's just a matter of how long the pause is...a half second to 2-3 seconds. Like PJ said, this pause helps to facilitate a smooth transition from the backswing to the forward stroke. A pause at the CB...

    Stacked leather wrap

    The real expert here is PBIA Master Instructor Lance Cowles, out of Battle Creek MI. He did all the stacked wrap work for Seyberts for several years, and the Tiger boys consider him an expert at installing stacked wrap leather. He has a bunch of pictures on his FB...Cuesports of Battle Creek...

    Sincere Condolences To Pat Fleming And Family.

    I have not been on here much lately, taking care of my ailing wife. I've known Pat a long time, and only briefly met Patrick. Quite the talent...comparable musically to his father's influence on the pool industry! Very sorry to learn of his death, and my sincere condolences to the Fleming...

    Need advise

    Need advise

    Larry...Jerry did not invent SPF. That came from Randy Goettlicher and Leslie Rogers more than 30 years ago, and myself for the past 20 years. Jerry does not include video analysis in his lessons. AFTER working with Jerry (to Leigh's great delight and great opportunity) the next step is an...

    Video Tape From Behind The Shooter

    Joe...That's a shame you lost the dvds, because reviewing your lesson frequently is a great way to continue improving. The side view shows everything that is going on...how the cue is set up and delivered, how the cue is held and delivered (at different speeds), whether or not the shoulder is...

    Pin size hit

    Everything you mentioned is true. That said, the "feel" of the tip used is the biggest factor on how a cue "feels" to the end user. Two different tips on the same cue with all the same factors will feel completely different to the same player. Scott Lee 2019 PBIA Instructor of the Year...
