It isn't possible to move a low deflection cue to the side and elevate it to get the same path as a high deflection cue. The second half of the path could be very similar, going around a ball three-quarter to the object ball for example. That part of the path can be pretty much identical despite starting off far different.

However, let's look at a ball one-fourth of the way to the object ball now. The person using a low deflection shaft has to aim further out and make a substantially larger arc than the person who gets the original offset largely through deflection. This one specific shot, the high deflection shaft has benefits over the low deflection shaft.

The low deflection shafts offer a lot of benefits and only rarely is the high deflection shaft superior. The shots mentioned here, masse and jump cues, the high deflection shaft is superior.

By the way, you are at 20,000 posts. You should make it a good one like definitive proof of who shot Kennedy or how to achieve peace in the mideast. Then come back to this if you want to.
