Arrow How to Use the Masse' Shot to Curve Around Obstructing Balls - 02-28-2015, 03:43 PM

The masse shot is useful to get out of troubling situations. The system I use makes this as simple as possible, with a little practice you can do it too. Just don't practice it at a place that doesn't allow masse' shots, it's best to get it perfected at home before taking it out in public (if possible).

Here's an example of a masse' shot that will give you a starting point to learn the technique. If you have other situations or to learn how to aim this type of shot I'll be happy to answer your questions to the best of my ability.

I have practice serve shots for a little bit and I have gotten pretty good/accurate with it. Just last night I used intention serve to sink the 8 ball. The look on your opponents face when you do it perfectly is priceless. He only thought he had it safe.

Good video, thanks for posting.
I use a full spectrum of curving shots, from slight squerving to full-on masse.
I'm no expert, and it is a matter of feel, but everyone should be adding these shots to their repertoire.
My regular opponent does not even try to use them (to his disadvantage). 😃

Impossible. You can't bake the ball curve like that, without camera trickery. I am sure of it.

The "compass" direction you point the cue determines the CB's initial direction. How hard you hit the CB determines how far it goes in that initial direction before completing the curve onto the parallel path.

It's the best masse aiming technique I know, it's very accurate with some practice, and it works on all masse shots from small shallow curves to 180-degree "turnaround" curves.
