Ball overlaps with pictures - 02-02-2017, 05:15 PM

The 4 pictures shown below are hand drawn and not quite to scale. The OB (dashed line) is drawn on the left side, the CB on the right. All ball centers are marked with +.

Edit: New photo added by Vorpal Cue (Post # 3) for those who see the original image in an upside down position. The 15 & 30 degree pictures are ball quarters... .280 is 1/8th ball.

The images drawn above show the four ball contact points as red dots. The contact points are always centered inside the ball overlaps.
No matter how you aim, or how much the balls overlap, the balls contact in the center of this football shape, whether it's wide, or narrow.
This is what you look for if you're aiming CB contact point to OB contact point. It works well, but overlaps aren't equal at long distances.

More important are distances between centers of the OB and CB. The OB and CB centers are always the same distances from the CP.
This is what you look for if you're aiming double the distance past the CP from OB center. It works if you guess the distance past the CP.

This is important: The balls always contact each other between the Object Ball center and where the Cue Ball center is aimed. Repeat.

If the CB center is aimed at the points drawn on the OB, it will travel down the angles on the drawings.. 7 1/2, 15, 22 1/2 and 30 degrees.

You must know the pocket angle beforehand in order to aim your CB center. Click the link below to find how to do that... Play well, Carl

Recognize a 1/2 ball 30 degree cut, and the 1/8 ball angles.
Paralysis by aiming analysis happens by thinking too much.

To play at top speed.. You must own the stop shot line.
