Adding side spin to a medium range angle shot - 03-17-2019, 05:26 AM

When Iím trying to add some side spin to a angle shot, should I use front hand English, or back hand English?? Moving the bridge hand or keeping the bridge hand stationary and moving the back hand to get my side spin???

I think that by "angle" shot you probably mean "cut" shot, or a shot that is not straight in -- it has a cut angle other than zero.

Whether you need to use front-hand, back-hand, parallel, cross-over, or air-pivot correction for squirt depends on your cue, the cloth, the length of the shot, how close the cue ball is to the cushion, and the cleanliness of the balls. Dr. Dave has a DVD that gives a complete accurate description of what's required.

In the meantime I suggest you practice a half-ball cut shot with inside and outside english and gradually increase the amount of spin and the distance of the shot.

Generally, you need to adjust your aim a little to the same side you're hitting the CB on to apply spin - maybe a little less depending on the things Bob mentioned.
