Correct. Finesse is the word I've used to describe how hard you hit the ball. The parameter is there should some feel that they have a habit of hitting some shots too hard, and the user may turn it on to monitor this if so the choose.

In general, good/bad i.e. green/red is a threshold set by YOU.

Clearly you need to hit shots hard and soft to play pool. Please understand that the DigiCue BLUE is just a tool to help you focus on your own needs, not force you to generate 10's in everything.

I bought this product out of curiosity, and to help a friend hopefully identify stroke flaws. I am very impressed with it. I got it today, fast shipping. And once I figured out how to make my phone visible to other bluetooth devices it was simple to use. I hit about 50 shots, the thing vibrating here and there on some shots, so I thought my results would be terrible. What the stats show is what I figured needs work.....my pause. So now I have a tool that will surely help me develop this. Here's a screenshot when I finished. I think it was 45 shots total.



I think it's a great tool and I'll be working with it more over the next few days.

My lowest straightness number that I saw was 7.0. Tip steer was in the 8's a few times. Not sure how many shots comprise this total result screen. But I like that you can look at each shot individually for errors, and also look at bar graphs of each measured parameter over a certain time period.

The screen that you posted shows data only from your last shot, and is not representative of a summary. The stats page shows long term statistics. There's a lot more we want to do with data manipulation and graphics in future app updates.

Good job BTW. I want to see someone get all 10s on follow through, tip steer, Straightness and jab.

I've got a few shots recorded with 10s on straightness, tip steer, and jab, but not all 4. The follow through is usually between 6 and 8.

I want to think about making a prized challenge to get 10's on all four. Not over the internet though, since someone could just edit the screenshot.

It's possible. I just recorded ablut 30 more shots....getting close, but I notice more error in straightness or pause when I try to accelerate in order to get higher on follow through. Got three good results like this...so I know somebody out there can get all 10's. And i understand why it couldnt be a simple screenshot like this, still pretty neat. Most fun pool gadget I've used.

I have only used mine twice. Without directions it has taken me a while to figure it out but I can see benefits in using this. As an example, I didn't know it would show statistics but when I turned it on the next day...there they were.
One thing that did help was to turn off all but one item to be measured. This way I could focus on the system features.
I will make a better post when I get back to the table.

Great post. Good idea to turn off other parameters in order to focus on a specific one.

On the Setting menu...then to Configurations...Vibrations.. I can select Vibrate on Success or Vibrate on Fault....Why can I turn them both on or both off? It doesn't make sense to turn both on or off....

Nathan, I watched your video. Do you recommend training with the digicue by shooting one ball at a time into a pocket as opposed to shooting the cue ball into the object ball? I find I can score better by shooting one ball at a time. What are your thoughts?

Good question. What I did when I first got it was just shoot a few balls in normally, using the cb on each shot to get a true assessment of what the device found wrong with my stroke. It makes sense to then focus on the errors by shooting one ball at a time as you've described.
