    CTE automatically corrects stroke issues

    Apparently this is another benefit of CTE. If you don't hit the CB properly the system doesn't work. I was wondering--seeing as I'm having a hard time figuring out CTE--does anyone know of a different aiming system that also corrects stroke issues. I have a bad habit of twisting my wrist on...

    Problems with breakshots? This may help.

    There've been many posts here on problems with BS's. Getting stuck, scratching, etc, etc. IMO one big problem is choice of BS. This is often exacerbated by commentators on videos saying it's too low or too high. Too close to the rack, too far away. They might be better served by pointing out...

    Incredible play at the American 14.1

    The final round of the round robin stage just concluded. The last match was the stream match where Lee Vann Corteza showed great determination and came back to win 100-91 after being down to Nick van den Berg 77-1. This round featured the A players in each group vs the B players. From where I...

    Lack of traffic on forum

    I'm new here & am a little depressed about the lack of traffic in the 14.1 category. As a side note when I first discovered the forum I went down the list looking for the "Position Play" section, only to discover there wasn't one. Seeing as how once new players start being able to pocket some...
