Me, I know half a dozen systems and use... none of them -- zippo. I also know a few kicking systems but when I have to go one or three rails I use exactly: zero. (OK, one time I used the Spot on the Wall.) I have books, and videos, and DVDS with huge steaming piles of aiming systems... but I use none. As I've oft said, I just see the shot and shoot the shot.

I use no systems though I have the knowledge and resources to do so if wanted. How 'bout you?

Must be something; edge to edge, whole ball to whole ball. You've got to aim at something. Maybe not a "system" but you have to aim at a ball. You might not even be aware of it like I wasn't either. Do you have a table at home?

I'm with Lou on this one. May have used a 2 or 3-rail system a few times, but once you kick enough 2 and 3 rails you basically just know where to aim by looking at the shot and visualizing the cb's path.

Once someone knows the 2-4, and 3-5 rail system, one rails, two rails, etc all become easier. Almost every ball on the table can be hit with these rail systems. I work on these weekly.

I don't use any aiming systems, but I do look at the same things for each shot (CB contact point & where my stick is pointed in relation to it).

I think my subconscious probably "looks at" other things too, but I can't know for sure what they may be or how they're processed to arrive at the "Eureka!" moment.

A one-step system? If you insist...

I think of it as simply "taking note" of the most specific data available. Like I said, I don't consciously do anything with the info, just pass it along to my invisible computer.

Although... I think that's approximately what happens with even the most elaborate systems - they're just different ways of gathering shotpic data for our subconscious computers to use. I think the more elaborate ones are that way in order to give more confidence in that "handoff".

pj <- probly hear from the systemizers about that last bit...
