Recall this guy from El Paso, Texas they called "Fat Ralph", he was a fixture at the BCAPL 8 Ball thing in Las Vegas practice area. People lined up to play him, donating to his wallet.

His Cue was some old dog sneak Pete with the handle held to get her with duck tape, his case was from maybe some thrift shop $5.00 special.

But the man could play pool, seldom lost, but he was smart enough to play people who thought they were world class, with money to blow.

Saw Fat Ralph in PHX on his way home come into this bar, played two guy for $100.00 each race to 7 or was it 9 in 9 Ball. Made $200.00, walk out in like 20-25 minutes, the local hot shot did not get many shots.
And? Many of us could be that guy. CTE comes in SUPER handy in the bars with shitty tables. The only difference between me and fat ralph is that I don't take easy money from suckers.

I did know a road player once who used an aiming/stroking method that is really powerful. He said it's like stealing without a gun.

They play at every skill level just like everyone else. Or did you somehow think that Center to Edge aiming was some sort of magic wand that instills knowledge and experience in all other aspects of the game that are critical to having a complete skillset?

If so no it's not. It's a method of aiming for a center ball hit. Pretty good foundation for learning everything else though. Easier to figure things out when the baseline aim is dead on.

The cartoon above is funny, beware of people who sell "their systems", unless they offer a money back guarantee.

System salespeople are profit driven, its like thinking a car salesmen is working to get you the best deal. Because they said so, believe that, I will sell you the title to the Brookline Bridge. BS they are work to get the dealership the most profit, because the more profit, the more Comission the salespersongets paid.

It not just Amiming System it everything from Cues, Cases, Chalk, Bridges, or other for profit gizmos. Pool is a game of skill, not a game won by the person with the pretties Cue made by some maker with a 10 year wait.

Number of Cues, Cases, Pool Gizmo Collecting is just that a hobby collecting something. Enjoy your hobby if that is your hobby.
Oh yeah....big profits in the pool and billiards aiming systems. Lol i agree though about some custom cue prices. But as long as people are buying them, like overpriced cars, then the prices won't be going down anytime.

Seriously, players like me who came up with a better way to learn and apply fractional aiming, or people like Joe Tucker with his aiming system, or Stan Shuffett or Tor Lowry or whoever else, have dedicated a lot of time to find ways to help others improve. I don't know of one person that is trying to sell a gimmick aiming system for the purpose of making big bucks by ripping people off, selling them magic bullets. This includes Stan. He's been referred to as a snake oil salesman in the past because of some CTE claims. But I truly believe that he trusts and believes every word he says about CTE, unlike a swindler or snake oil salesman. He is passionate about the game, as most of us are.

We live in a world where anyone with creative or imaginative effort can produce a product and try to sell it. If it's no good, fake, or useless, the product will not sell. If it is good, if it works, if it's useful, then it will sell. In today's open market it's highly unlikely that a true snake oil salesman could find enough suckers to make much money.
