Thanks for the tip.

For anybody else interested in getting on the table to experiment with initial low angle shots from a couple of degrees up to (you put in the angle # from your own discoveries), and you still don't quite understand how this works, here's the visual you should be seeing.

You'll be aiming center of the cue ball to the center of the OB with your cue like a laser to strike the shot to MISS the pocket. Unlike contact points, fractions, overlaps, GB. where you step in immediately to the correct impact spot to make the shot, you aim wherever a straight alignment takes you. A center to center alignment could have the OB missing the pocket anywhere from 1" to 1' or more. You have to get used to it. I can't emphasize the importance of this paragraph and description enough.

Then make your pivot with the cue to the outside so the tip points to the 1/4 spot on the OB. (1/2 way between center and edge). For very minor cuts of only a couple degrees, the pivot might be less which ends up between the center of the CB to the 1/4 spot on the OB.

If you can't get the initial low angle shots along with the visuals, you ain't gonna get the rest of it and will end up saying the entire system is garbage. It's NOT.
