I worked on speed for 2-3 days and since it was snowy and icy out in SW Indiana tonight i said what the heck, i am going to break a few racks. So, i end up hosing a handful of runouts and each and every time it was because i left myself tough due to my speed being off 2-4 inches.

I guess I am going to be a pool loser my whole life.

I am going to keep trying though. The game brings me to my knees quite often. I guess if it was easy then everybody could play like Nick Varner.

I think hitting the CB up and down table with no OB is probably a worthwhile drill. The first shot in Kim Davenport's Target Pool is playing the CB from the foot spot and leaving it on the head spot without running into a rail. Try it - it's a *****.

IMO, it gets a lot harder to control speed when youíre running into an OB. In a ľ-ball hit the CB is going to travel a lot farther than in a Ĺ ball hit (where the CB & OB will travel the same distance). If you add English into the equation it gets more complicated still. Running English will make the CB fly off the rail and I tend to over-hit those shots because I know I have to hit it hard enough to have the spin intact when the CB hits the rail, but softly enough so it doesnít fly out of control. Thatís finesse, and some people got it and others donít (I wish I had it).

Speed Control hasnt been mentioned here in the Instructor Forum for awhile so I thought I would bump this thread. I believe its something I need to work on again.

And yes, I know this thread is over 7 years old!

And then there's the opposing view, which is shared by literally 100's of PBIA/SPF instructors...and that is training the student to develop (through feel and timing) speed control right out of the gate...first lesson! Seems to have worked really well for tens of thousands of students out there! So, even though DCP revived another years old thread, the truth remains the same...but Mike you still refuse to believe it! No real surprise here why you continue to struggle.

Drills can help, but you need to put yourself in real playing situations, where you have to move the cb around other balls. It's when you have to be creative where a good sense of speed control really comes in handy.

We didn't have time to work it last time, but your bridge and tip gap are both a tad long IMHO.
