The misunderstood pivot in CTE aiming - 09-06-2019, 05:03 PM

Stan Shuffett today says............

"Yes, CTE is a pivoting system, but the pivot is very, very misunderstood.
I can shoot 1,000 shots using CTE in slo-mo and never exhibit even one hint of anything that resembles a pivoting of my cue.
Some of the CTE critics are delusional if they think that CTE practitioners can be tagged or not tagged as such by what can be observed about how one uses their cue during alignment.
A cue is nothing more than an extension of one’s hand that is used for aligning to what the eyes see.
CTE is a visual task that occurs independently of the cueing instrument."


"It is almost impossible to free fools from the chains they revere."

The critics will someday be FORCED into accepting this.....or lose to everyone they play. It cannot be stopped....no matter how hard the critics try.

"CTE is a visual task that occurs independently of the cueing instrument."
May I ask what speed you play? I assure you I am not being smart and you certainly don't have to answer, but I am genuinely curious. I myself am a solid C player I would imagine... SL-5 in APA 8 ball, have a few break and runs a month during my matches, position play and pattern play leave a lot to be desired. Like many, cue ball control (not ball pocketing), is my biggest weakness.

I lost last night to an SL7. I didn't miss a single ball that I had a realistic chance of making. The few balls I did miss were the result of hooking myself from over running position by a few inches, or by getting a little out of line on successive shots until I eventually could not recover. They guy I was playing missed one makeable shot all night. I lost 6 games to 3 (9 games) and the entire match was I think under 20 innings.

Just curious on your thoughts on how much benefit CTE would be to a guy like me, who doesn't really struggle pocketing balls, but has a big issue seeing where whitey will go and being able to put it where I want it consistently. Thanks in advance.

I will wiegh in. The advantage of a solid system like cte or similar is your confidence goes up because once the system is learned, consistancy goes up. Thus you are not focusing so much on pocketing the ball but shift to what you want to do with the cueball. The stroke also improves because you can let the cue go knowing the ball is going in. This unleashes more possibilities of position play.

How do you know where the cue ball is going if you don't visualize the ghost ball or the tangent line ?

A reasonable question, considering that with some pivot systems it has been said that you don't look straight over your cue/stroke line because your vision is not aligned directly behind the cb. But I would guess after you get your final shot line you would have to pay attention to exactly where the cb is headed so you'll know what you need to do in order to maneuver the it from the current shot to the next shot. Aiming is only part of the process of playing pool, so CTE users would simply have to do what everyone else does -- use other visual methods to determine what to do with the cb, and then tweak your aim (based on experience) in order to compensate for any english applied.

I think its natural to see the tangent line before you even begin your preshot routine. Thats done as part of shot selection. Knowing and seeing the different shots for position play. Most everyone starts out playing gb. So should be natural. Once thats determined i get my perception for the shot then bend over and execute.

Where and when do you work in the pivot? Do you pivot to the spot on the CB where you will "impart" the necessary jazz on the CB to get your desired poz?

If you see the tangent line standing up, then all you need to do is go down on the center of the cue ball.
You will be dead on if your tangent line is correct.
Why then complicate the whole process ?
