touch of inside. CJ has me hooked - 05-03-2020, 11:39 PM

i joined CJS website today, and started watching his video TOUCH OF INSIDE, as i have been missing some long range slight angle cut shots. i can always use more information. i found the video great, CJ explained things very well, easy to understand, nice graphics, good video editing. as for a touch of inside, i started practicing on my table, and i picked it up pretty fast. i watched the whole video, and after he explained a shot, i would go to my table and try the shot. went very well.

i will definitely add TOUCH OF INSIDE to my game. looking forward to watching the other videos in his set.

TOI will definitely help your game.

I have been playing that style for years and years.

There are a lot of naysayers, but if you practice what he says you will see that it will improve your game.

If you have a table, all the better. You can see the results immediately as you practice through trial and error.

Awesome! Fun to experiment and when something clicks it becomes so much fun.
If you get a chance, see CJ in person. He's a really nice guy and a very good teacher.
Good luck!

Fun to do, and it works. For me, a really good draw stroke is needed often to get around, and I don't always have it :-)

I appreciate the positive review of your experiences with The Touch of Inside technique, glad to share it you,, it took me years to learn, master and teach....I'll describe how it started, although there's several other chapters. .

When I learned this system it was from watching top road players and people would say "he's got the cue ball on a string" it appeared to be! These players had dynamic styles like Vernon Elliot, Jerry Brock, Bobby Leggs, Matlock, and Omaha John, the cue ball seemed to float from position to position.

I started traveling across the country with Omaha John and watched him closely to see if I could tell what he was doing. I couldn't......but I knew the after-contact-reaction of the cueball and started imitating subconsciously, trying to "float" the cueball {as he called it}.

After John and I were done with our trip I ended up in Tampa Florida at a pool room owned by Bill Ammadeo (spelling?) who was a great player 20 years prior. He saw me practicing and came over to the table and ask he could show me something.

I agreed and he set up a very thin cue to the side pocket and ask me to cut it in. I tried and had trouble because it was very thin, had to hit the very edge of the object ball. He stopped me after a couple attempts and suggested I cue the ball sightly to the right of center (the cut angle was to the right) so I tried and feathered the ball beautifully into the center of the side pocket.

That shot opened my eyes to something significant, the object ball always cuts thinner when we use just a "Touch" of inside.....so why not use it on all shots and aim all shots to the inside of the pocket? Wouldn't that create 3 parts to the pocket, the inside, center and outside? Wouldn't that give me a bigger pocket zone and, in effect, a bigger pocket?

Yes, indeed, I had figured out the key to the road player style of play, the only thing left was to figure out the speed of the ideal shot, Aiming, and how to play position, which ended up being one of the strengths of not having any spin after contacting the object ball - this creates a consistent, more predictable path of the cueball, especially off rails.

When you watch closely you'll see some of the world's greatest players use TOI naturally, especially with tight pockets and worn cloth, it's vital for reasons I explain on the pool table, as you saw in my 90 minute video - Thanks again, Judochoke.....hmmm....are you a martial arts practitioner?

Yes, visualizing parts of the pocket can add precision no matter how you explain it.

Two of the biggest benefits are:

1. Consistent alignment...the added consideration of the TOI anchors you in when just lining up and dropping onto the shot tends to break down.

2. The slight inside cancels out most of your collision-induced spin on the CB, which gets VERY predictable and helps with CB control.

I won't admit to using it all the time, but it can be a powerful tool. Takes about 3 hours to get it down and working consistently...takes a consistent line up (about 1/4 tip of inside) and a medium stroke...the stroke speed makes a difference, and that's probably the hardest part to get dialed in. That, and just draw or follow will get you to a surprising number of places you need to go. The shot will look off when you start, but once you get the hang of it, the shots start to look right to you...your perception gets dialed in to the new alignment.

I've known a lot of really good players that shoot just center line of the CB on 95% of their shots...and they can get the CB just about wherever they need. Too much sidespin has ruined just about every leave I've ever lost.

Just like CTE systems, it takes a little commitment to try it out to see what benefits it may hold for you. You might like what you find, you might not.

How are you doing, my friend, it's been awhile, haven't seen that avatar name in awhile, brings back fond memories. Seems like I've lived two lifetimes since posting on AZbiliards - so much has happened, now we are in the Apocalypse or whatever, it's an exciting time to live.....hope you're doing well!

Another important aspect of the Touch of Inside is the ability to create a margin of error immediately at the cueball....at the moment of contact and visually as well.

It's difficult to drop down exactly to the middle of the cue ball visually, especially on a line that places your cue straight back from where you intend to contact the object ball. I wouldn't wan to bet my life I could do that, however, I would bet my life I could come down slightly to the left or right of center. This is because there is a margin of error.

Also, I wouldn't want to bet my life I could hit the exact center of the cueball, and I would make that bet if I was allowed to hit intentionally to the left or right of center.

Let's say I'm cutting a ball to the right, and targeting the left side of the pocket.

I will come down on the shot slightly to the left of center. With a consistent, "pop stroke" (like popping a whip smoothly) if I hit exactly where I'm aiming (slightly to the right) I want my shot calibrated to hit the center of the pocket.

.....if I accidently contact the cueball more to the right I'll hit the far right side of the pocket.

......if I accidentally contact the cueball to the left of where I'm aiming I'll hit the center of the cueball and the left side of the pocket.


This is how I can increase the margin of error zone on the cueball and connect it to the 3 Part Pocket zone at the pocket. The combination of these two factors are synergistic.

When a player grasps what I just described it will open up a new, mental dimension to their game, the only thing left is to learn the "pop stroke" so that you get a consistent deflection (squirt) from the cueball and learn the aiming part which is fairly simple.

Even if you use a low deflection shaft it won't matter because when you use the Touch of Inside targeting, the visual reference will help create the cut, especially when the "pop stroke" is used that I demonstrate in my Precision Pool Drills.

I demonsrate a great way to develop the stroke and know it's correct in just a few hours using some highly effective drills and a visual aid.

So, target center pocket with aim adjusted for squirt. Sounds exactly the same as anybody who wants to hit with a touch of inside. Only the motivation changes - I add side spin if I need it for CB control; you add it as an aiming technique. Exactly where we end up aligned is identical.

Exactly the same results everybody gets no matter what their motivation for adding a touch of inside.

Since the resulting aim alignment is the same, how does a TOI player have more margin for error?

You have trouble understanding this technique because you try to comprehend it before you put the 3 hours to experience it on a real pool table.

Champion players will say they Experienced powerful pool techniques BEFORE they comprehended them, not the other way around (like you try to do).

When.you get serious about raising the level of your game a few levels let me know, I'll be glad to help, 'Precision Pool Drills' would teach you a lot.

Do the TOI drills on the pool table, you can't just conceptualize them, it takes table hours for players to reacher their full potential.

CJ,

You have to remember.

PJ is a "pool scientist".

He isn't a "pool player", like you are.

You go to the table with your cue.

He goes to the table with a slide rule or something.

There is a difference.

I think he uses Magic chalk on his slide rule.

I'm pretty sure what I brought up is a matter of simple geometry, which (last I heard) doesn't change with experience.

Anyway, no worries, CJ - I've said my piece and will leave you to yours. Whether or not TOI actually creates a "greater margin of aiming error", I agree with the message I get from your "pocket zones": don't just aim "at the pocket", aim at a smaller part of it - aim small, miss small.

Carry on.

Because I can visualize CJ's instructions and compare them to "normal" aiming? That's a pretty low bar.

And I think if you apply yourself with an open mind even you can get over it (eventually) and find that a rational approach to pool knowledge returns benefits.

pj <- good luck with that!
