I struggled with that also.

Speaking of short backswings, over in the "Ask an Instructor" forum someone is advocating a half-inch bridge. Guaranteed to fix your loosey-goosey stroke issues.

I've heard Alex advocate a short backstroke and then I've seen him use a regular backstroke where it seemed like a short one was indicated for accuracy.

I use a piston stroke so I donít think swing....although it morphs to pendulum on draw.

Piston is thinking with your cue...and thatís what you hit the ball with.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

Looks like some serious wisdom has been
drawn out here.
If I didn't have to spread it around.....
