among all Filipinos that I usually see here in the Philippines, Ronnie Alcano, Raymund Faraon and Antonio Lining have the smoothest stroke. Their cues seem to be very very light when they stroke it. Among the 3, I admire Alcano's accuracy. there was one time I saw him stroke the cue for more than 20 times, before finally hitting the cue ball.

My vote goes to Antonio Lining, his stroke is smoooooooth & deceptive.
For what it's worth I really like Larry Nevels stroke as well.

Mike Segal=very calculated, precise.
And as someone said Buddy Hall nice compact stroke, never understood these guys with exsageratted follow thru's! I see it more and more. keep it short, control your backstroke, as well as amount through the ball, see my video's on cue stick control. some shots I look at and say 1" back, 0 follow, or 3" back & 2" follow, or 5" and 3", but you have to be able to stop the cue smoothly. Hall shoots like this its hard, but much less can go wrong. there is a youtube of me playing Buddy in Burbank, I bet him 11 to 3. Those were the days.

I am glad I decided to read through this. My late friend John O'Neil always raved about Dallas West stroke saying it was the smoothest he had ever seen. Since I viewed a lot of Pool up close and in person from 95- 09 my vote goes to Buddy Hall.

The best stroke in the snooker world belonged to Stephen Lee. Finesse, beauty, power his stroke had it all. Sadly he squandered his great talent by cheating. When you look at the shots he pulled off on the super tight snooker match tables, so smoothly, it boggles the mind. The "best of" videos don't show the "little" shots where he'd strike the ball soo smoothly that you couldn't even hear the strike and getting all kinds of action on the ball...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgq-fvQKt7Y

In pool, the best stroke belongs to Reyes, just in terms of his accuracy and results. When he strikes the ball, the stroke doesnt' look like anything special, and in fact looks nothing like most professionals. This is amplified by his casual and relaxed appearance. More than a few times, even commentators miss the greatness of the shots, simply because he made them look like nothing. Then you watch what the ball is doing, and it boggles the mind. Stage 3 is trying to replicate the stroke yourself, and realizing that there is not way in hell you can do it with any consistency, and sometimes you can't do it AT ALL...His "hold-up" shots are examples of this. Granted, his stroke has lost some power over the years, but his finesse is intact, and is at an untouchable level that nobody else even comes close to. In pool there are scores of "straight shooters" and there are lots of "power strokers", but there is only one Reyes.

Other than Reyes I always liked and tried to emulate Buddy Halls stroke.

I can't leave George San Souci out of any discussion of great strokes. I found it to be smooth, rhythmic, powerful and precise. I still watch his matches when I want to get in stroke, and I know for fact that his stroke was envied by many of his fellow professionals. It was truly a thing of beauty.
